"The next fight will be..." They already knew who it was. The two glared daggers at each other. "Asuka Kazama..." Asuka stepped forward, hate still burning in her eyes. "Versus Lili Rochefort..." Lili stepped up to meet Asuka face to face. More like nose to nose, really. The two had to be separated by the other fighters. "In an I Quit fight! The winner of this match is the one who makes her opponent utter the words "I quit". "You'll have to stretcher me out of this fight, because there is no way in hell I am submitting to you, you spoiled bitch." Asuka shot venom through her words. "Well that can be arranged, because I won't submit to you. I'm going to crush you like the pesky little insect you are." Lili fired back an equally venomous verbal shot. With the two fighters separated, the voice over the P.A. boomed "FIGHT!" ________________________________ Lili and Asuka circled each other, staring holes through each other. They both knew that an emotion-driven match is an unplanned match, and an unplanned match was a lost one. Lili took the first swing, a feint kick. Asuka tried to parry, but she was caught with the overhead kick the feint hid. Asuka shook it off, cursing her forgetfulness of how nimble and agile Lili was. Her offense may look flowery, but it was some pretty lethal stuff, and she could be quickly overwhelmed by it if she let it get to her mentally. Lili threw a front kick, but Asuka caught her leg and snapped off a right cross to Lili's jaw. Lili stumbled back a step. The two continued to glare hate at each other. Lili threw a high kick at Asuka who blocked it, then twisted sharply and ducked, spinning around in a leg sweep that Asuka jumped over at the last second. She tried to come down on Lili's leg, but it wasn't there. "You're pretty quick, Lili, but you might forget I am too," Asuka said, then feinted a front kick and jumped with her other leg, landing a karate kick to Lili's face. Her head snapped back with a sudden motion, and she grunted. Asuka immediately followed it with a sweep of her own, knocking Lili's legs out from under her. She landed hard on her back, but managed to roll out of the way of the stomp that was heading her way. Lili caught Asuka's leg with her own and brought her down, then locked up a leg lock. Asuka shrieked in surprise and pain. "Say it! Say it!!" Lili yelled. "Go to hell!" Asuka yelled back, and began planting elbows into Lili's legs. Lili grunted with each one, and tried to torque the leg lock on Asuka harder, but Asuka kept raining down elbows, so Lili gave up the leglock. In the scramble to get up, she swung a knee at Asuka's face, who narrowly avoided it. Asuka threw a punch she knew Lili would block, then spun quickly and drilled her across the face with a spinning backfist. Asuka thought she heard Lili's jaw break. Lili must have thought the same thing, because she immediately tested it. "Nope, not broken" she said, "but nice punch. You hit harder than I thought you could. I prefer these though," and came in with a right elbow which rattled Asuka's jaw. She continued the onslaught with a left uppercut, catching Asuka in the chin. She went for broke and threw another right, but Asuka caught it and used her momentum to spin Lili to the floor. Lili grunted with the impact, and Asuka was on top of her with a hammerlock, forcing her arm behind her back. In an instant she had her left arm around Lili's chin and jaw, she had yanked Lili to her feet, and she began torquing her shoulder in one direction and her neck in the other in a chicken wing submission hold. "Let me hear it, Lili!" Asuka taunted, as Lili yelled out in pain. Lili had to figure something out, as the hold started to feel like torture. Her neck and shoulder started to burn with the pain as she screamed. Lili managed to circle a leg around Asuka and knocked her slightly loopy with a reverse roundhouse to the back of the head that loosened the hold and stopped the pressure, but didn't break it entirely. So Lili kicked her again, in the upper back this time, not getting all of it. It was enough, and she broke Asuka's grip. Lili turned and kneed Asuka in the stomach, doubling her over. Then she grabbed Asuka in a guillotine choke, jumped up and wrapped her legs around Asuka to pull her to the floor. Lili wrenched the hold but Asuka had gotten a hand between Lili's arm and her neck, so she couldn't apply the choke quite enough to cut off Asuka's breathing. Asuka was still in a very bad spot, and she had to keep that hand in there so she couldn't attack with it. Asuka attacked with knees to Lili's stomach, and three of them broke the hold. The two scrambled to their feet, breathing heavily. "Sucking air already, Asuka?" Lili asked tauntingly. "So are you", Asuka countered. Lili retorted with "Well, I guess it's better than sucki- OOF!" she was cut off with a soccer style kick to the stomach that threatened to drop her lunch all over the battleground. Lili clutched her stomach and fell to the ground, and Asuka jumped on her. Rolling her to her back, Asuka drew her fist back and punched Lili in the face with a straight right hand, banging her head into the floor. The collision with the floor caused her to see stars. Asuka grabbed a handful of hair, pulled her head back up and punched again. "I'll give you a chance before I hit you again, you cow... what do you say? Two words, you know them... come on.. "You can't fire me because..." "Because... fuck you" Lili retorted. Lili brought her knee up and hit Asuka in the kidneys with it. Asuka groaned and rolled off. Lili scrambled, which was slowly at this point, and got Asuka with a camel clutch hold. Sitting on Asuka's back, she clenched her hands under Asuka's chin and reared back. Asuka gave out a shriek of pain to Lili's delight. "Quit or I'll break your neck!" Lili yelled in fury. Asuka screamed. Lili relented slightly only to drop back down and torque the hold again. Asuka let out another cry of pain. Asuka started getting her legs under her. Lili only figured it out too late, when Asuka suddenly pushed off for all she was worth. For a moment she was standing upright with Lili perched on her shoulders, then she fell over backwards. Lili yelled in terror, then crashed hard into the ground in a bad landing. Her neck and shoulder throbbed, and she thought she had broken them. She lay on the concrete trying to gather her thoughts, while Asuka stood up, unsteadily. Wobbling slightly from exertion and pain, she made her way over to Lili, casting a shadow over her. "Well then?" Asuka asked. She leaned in close to Lili. "Say them. Say those words, and this will all be over and done with." Lili instead spit in Asuka's face in defiance. Asuka wiped the saliva from her face, and when she turned back to face Lili, her face was contorted in an expression of pure rage. She began to stomp Lili unmercifully everywhere she could. Arms, legs, chest, stomach. Lili rolled over in an attempt to get away, which only earned her shots to the back. Lili began to cry out in pain as Asuka landed stomp after stomp to her chest and stomach. More and more, almost 30 in all, before Asuka's boiling rage cooled enough for her to stop. Lili lay on the concrete with Asuka's boot prints on her. Blood had been drawn from her head. Lili lay there, panting and moaning in pain. Asuka was exhausted from her own onslaught. She tried to catch her breath, much easier done than Lili was capable of. She brought her boot up, and stomped down hard on Lili's chest. Lili cried out, tears in her eyes. "Submit." Asuka said it like it were a command. "No..." Lili managed to wheeze out. Asuka raised her boot and drove it into Lili's sternum again. "Submit" she repeated, in an eerie calm tone. Lili clutched at her chest and breathed out "No...". Asuka stomped her again. She heard a crack. "Submit" she ordered through clenched teeth. Lili found it hard to breathe, but still she said "No." Asuka landed a fourth stomp, breaking a couple ribs. "Submit!" she yelled. Lili was gasping for breath. She didn't submit, but she couldn't tell Asuka off either. So Asuka landed another crushing blow with her boot, this time breaking Lili's sternum. Lili screamed out in pain and began to sob. Another non-submission, so Asuka stomped hard again. It felt like a grenade exploded inside Lili's chest. She waved Asuka off to tell her she didn't want to continue the fight, but Asuka was unforgiving. "I want you to say it" she said to Lili. Lili couldn't speak from the pain. Asuka got in close, knowing Lili couldn't fight and not fearing a surprise attack or submission hold. Lili was curled into a ball, she wasn't going to fight from that position. Lili just managed to breathe the words "I submit" to Asuka. "There! See? That wasn't so hard, was it? Now just like I promised, the pain's over. Hopefully I beat a little class into you, too." Asuka painfully staggered away from the fight, the victor, arms raised in celebration. Lili had to be taken out of the arena on a stretcher.
