Rain slashes down through the sky in torrents, instantly soaking anything out in the open. Wind howls uncontrollably through the trees, bending them over as if they were nothing more than twigs, and ripples through the endless plains of grass. Pure, white moonlight pierces the maelstrom periodically bathing everything in a stark, snowy light.

Two figures stand silently facing each other amidst the voraciousness of the storm, unperturbed by the violent rain or howling winds. Each dressed in ancient robes worn millennia ago by their ancestors, one in a sky blue, the other in blood red. Both matted to the wearer by the rain.

The first stands shirtless, the rain sliding along his bare chest, rolling along the edges of muscles and finally down the long bladed weapon held clenched in his hand. The second stands stoically as the rain pelts her unmercifully and the wind blows her hair wildly through the air, a similar blade held in her own hands.

The first leaps forward with a yell as thunder breaks throughout the skies, slashing down from over head. The second neatly side steps and brings her own blade up to block the attack, then using her momentum brings her blade around mid-body at the first. First spins a full circle, barely dodging the attack while bringing his weapon up, thrusting straight at second’s body with frightening speed.

A quick widening of her eyes, betrays her calm demeanor as she scrambles backwards, swinging wildly downward to block the attack. First rolls to the side with the momentum and swings out to his right only to hear the screech of metal on metal as he is blocked. Second rolls over the blade and steps inside firsts guard, slamming him in the face with an elbow and pushing him to the ground as she rolls over his body.

First gets up and wipes at the flow of blood coming from his nose. Noticing that it isn’t stopping, he charges forward with a downward strike only to step to the side and forward while reversing his blade to chest level. Second starts to parry the first strike, then notices too late the change in attack and stance and takes a blow the side of her head, knocking her off balance.

First continues through with the strike and spins a half circle and thrusts outward towards second as she stumbles slightly. Second reflexively throws her blade out to block the attack while stepping to the side and forward, taking First’s blade out wide and strikes him in the kidney knocking him down to a knee. Not giving up her advantage she wraps her arm beneath his chin, around the neck and squeezes.

First tries to pry her arm off his neck, but fails and swallowing his pride taps her arm three times. Second releases her grip and smiles down at him through her wild hair, gloating and victory in her eyes. First grins back and slowly stands back up, rubbing the spot where Second had hit him in the kidney.

Both walk together from the field towards a small hut nestled in a small cove of trees.

“I wonder if you could’ve picked a worse spot to hit me in Selenna,” First says to the woman, glancing at the slightly darkened patch of skin in the fire light.

“I could have just kicked you in between your legs and left you to freeze out there you know,” Selenna replies back giggling. “Plus if you had worn the top piece it wouldn’t be so bad, but you had to be all high and mighty Korthan.”

Smirking Korthan replies, “Yeah well this is a lesson learned that’s for sure. I suppose we better get ready to head back up. Knowing them they're stamping their feet wondering where the hell we’ve been.”

Sighing heavily Selenna stands up and walks over to a small console in the wall and presses a button next to a small screen. “We’re ready and will meet you at the landing area.”

Looking around slowly, Korthan takes in the pleasure of the duel and the comfort of the small house. Sighing he walks over to Selenna and they both silently leave the house, back into the storm towards their transport to take them back into the stars high above.

Hmm, is she joining Omerta too? It seems like we have an awful lot of Caldari women.

More girls, more girls,... okay stop girls. Razz

Maybe when I get her more pvp oriented (ie. missile or gunnery skills)
