    Heightened Speed Max is more difficult to assess. Coupled with her own reduced quickness, Skye barely has time to parry the right and side step the left.

    With a nod, she steps back in and performs a series of strikes, each parryable but leaving Maxana little room to initiate an attack.
    With her heighten reaction speed, and Skye's lowered speed, Skye's strikes become much easier for Maxana to either block or parry. Finding an opportunity to get a strike in, she parries Skye's incoming strike with her right sword, and sends a strike of her own in with her free sword.

    Skye steadies herself and punches Max's incoming attack with her free hand. She steps back and says "Sorry, sorry. Instinct!" She assumes another defensive pose.

    OOC: Wait, she punched her sword? O_o

    IC: Maxana reels back after having her attack swatted away. Sighing, and then steeling herself, she launches another volley of rapid strikes coming in at all angles.

    "It is." He nodded. "And it'll be a live simulation. We'll be fighting in a city, to simulate urban combat, and each of us will be fighting something about equal to us. Maybe a little tougher..."

    OOC: Yep Remember she's in steel form herself.

    IC: Skye revels at the attacks, deflecting each skillfully. She didn't know that Max had what seemed to be professional training. Still, as good as Max was, Skye had been doing this for years.

    It was time to step it up.

    In a circular motion, Skye flicks at Max, knocking one sword out of her hand. Once it's one blade against another, Skye begins a series of motions meant to overwhelm Max's defenses and force her to do nothing but block. Again and again, Skye comes at her relentlessly, waiting for Max to slip up for her chance to strike the killing blow.

    Finally, a challenge. Beating up on Casimir is fun and all, but fighting someone on her level will be a true benchmark test. "Looking forward to it. I'm assuming it'll be one on one, as opposed to a team fight."

    OOC: So like Wolverine trying to stab Superman with his claws. Sharp enough to cut him, but not strong enough to actually do it?

    IC: Maxana is quickly overwhelmed by Skye's sudden and relentless retaliation. And without her second sword, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to launch a counterattack. And since she is so busy trying to keep Skye from breaking through her defense, she cannot mentally manipulate her other sword, which she could use to attack Skye from behind.

    Drat, and double drat!

    The only thing she can do is stand tall and stick her foot forward to try and trip Skye while she steps forward.

    "Sort of. I figure no one of us is going to be able to beat our match up alone, unless you're good at on the fly planning. I mean we all probably could. Bit I doubt easily." He smiled.

    She chuckles. "Well, considering your track record at, well, everything having to do with fighting, we'd better fight as a team."

    Skye notices Max's foot too late to stop herself from advancing into it, and a soft crack is heard upon contact. The stab of pain shoots through Max, which distracts her long enough for Skye to press the advantage. She bats away Max's sword and pushes forward, knocking Max on her back. She holds the tip of STABBY near Max's throat.

    After, she grimaces "Sorry about the foot!" Skye says.

    He grins. "You should know then, that short of having my heart forcibly removed, I'll keep fighting." He paused. "I doubt fighting as a team will work at first either. We'll be starting at different points in the city."

    [ooc]Anyone able to notice her (detailed in the discussion thread somewhere) would note, just before she went out of detection range, that she was headed somewhere southeast.

    Edit: It was kinda back there, so here it is again:

    Assuming that's not the case, Speed 10 isn't going to help him at all, as he's not among those with applicable anti-stealth (Casimir's suits (maybe), Eisen's precognition (maybe), Rivia's Pyromancy (maybe) and Clairvoyance, Robert's I'm Right Here (maybe), Skye's Sense Metal, and Mack's Zephyrkinesis (only when she's not in Dance of Fiere and Raine)).

    A minute from that point (conservatively), she will have completely escaped the range of any applicable sensing ability, aside from the ones that predict the future and possibly the stealth suit.

    Remember, while she has a reaction speed of 3, she has a travel speed- via hydrokinesis- that can be equal to her water stat (30) in speed normally.

    Anyway, I'll be out for at least an hour.
    [/ooc]

    Maxana hisses in pain and massages her sprained foot. It is a good thing her suit is so tough, and absorbed most of the impact, or it could have been a lot worse.

    Nodding slowly, she sighs, and calls her swords back to her, one of which accidentally nicks Skye's arm, which is totally an accident.

    "So, how did I do?"

    "Figured. Well, as long as I have something pretty to look at while I'm kicking ass, I'm good." Glancing over, she sees Skye standing over Max. "Look like they're done."

    Skye smirks at Max as the sword grazes Skye. She turns back to flesh and says "You did great! I didn't know you were that good with a sword." Skye looks down and notices a small gash in the knuckle of her glove where she punched the sword. She rubs her finger over it and seals the hole.

    "What's next?" Skye asks the others.

    OOC: This is for what Olivia did to Kyle

    IC: "Thank you," she says with a smile, "my Grandfather taught me quite well, and it was just a matter of digging up what he told me."

    As for what's next, one thing had to be done first. "For now, I need to borrow a little juice from you to heal my foot."

    "Next is pain." Casimir said while pushing himself off the ground. "I'd suggest healing up any cuts and bruises before I start the exercise. Might need it." He smiled.
