Neyvahn heard Rei call from behind him. She was offering to boost a trait of his. Considering the fact that he couldn't get many hits on Conner, he'd need the advantage of speed. Neyvahn dodged another wave attack from Conner, quickly backing off towards Rei."Speed!"
He knelt next to her behind the dumpster, finding a break against Conner and allowing Rei to transfer her spell over to him. He instantly felt the aching muscles in his body become overwhelmed with a cooling, energizing sensation. He could already feel his bodily responses speed up, adding on to his already quick reflexes. With the added speed, he was sure he'd be on equal ground with Conner. Unfortunately, the break did not last. Neyvahn could see Conner out of the corner of his eye, extending his arm out towards the dumpster.
Neyvahn lashed out and grabbed Rei, pulling her out from behind the dumpster before it was flung away, landing against the wall a few feet from the fire wizard. "Made a good call,"
Neyvahn mused. He let Rei down to get rid of the fire wizard, leaving him with Conner. Neyvahn was smarter and more cunning than the enraged man, but he was lacking speed to fight him. With Rei's helpful buff, he can start doing some real damage against Conner. That's when he noticed his sword on the other side of Conner. "... shit."
Conner used his wave magic to launch himself right in front of Neyvahn, closing the distance between the two and throwing a powerful sucker punch at Ney's face. However, he didn't have the speed advantage anymore. Neyvahn confidently dodged the attack, grabbing Conner's arm and throwing him down with his own momentum. He landed against the hard ground on his back, knocking the breath out of him. "Doesn't feel so good now, does it?"
Neyvahn growled, taking his left arm and punching against the elbow. Conner's arm broke with a snap
, causing him to yell in rage and pain.
Conner kicked out in pain, nearly catching Neyvahn by the jaw. Neyvahn took that as a sign to let go and get his sword. He dashed away with his increased speed, grabbing his sword and running back towards Conner. He was getting up, having troubles because of his newly broken and weirdly bent arm, courtesy of Ney. He wasn't getting up fast enough to recover before Neyvahn could get there, so Neyvahn took the chance and dropped right into Conner, kicking him square in the face with both feet. The force of the kick was enough to send Conner tumbling again. However, he quickly got back up again, using the rolling momentum to do most of the work for him.
His expression twisted and turned even more, becoming warped with rage and anger. The way his aura radiated off of him, he was becoming more desperate, and more enraged. He charged up another wave attack, a powerful one. Neyvahn wouldn't be able to dodge this one, even with his speed. Instead he used his magic to build a wall from the ground beneath him. "Gadokabe!"
The paved road shifted and rose in front of Neyvahn, putting something between him and Conner's attack just in time. The wave attack launched towards the wall and hit it, completely demolishing it. Fortunately, the attack wasn't strong enough to keep going. The wall shattered into dust and debris, creating a smoke screen.
Neyvahn took a heavy breath. Conner Roseheart was too dangerous to keep fighting. Damages to the city could be heavier than their reward. Suddenly, another horizontal wave attack cut through the smoke, right above Neyvahn. Play time was over. Neyvahn shifted and reformed some of the fallen concrete into a shuriken. The impact would probably shatter the shuriken, leaving fragments in Conner. Neyvahn leaped out with the improvised weapon in his pouch, ready to use. He rushed forward, muttering "Tosho"
under his breath. Conner grabbed a hold of the fruit cart from earlier with his wave magic and flung it and Neyvahn. The speed boost kept him well away from such attacks, allowing him to get in close and swing his sword down on Conner. Conner dodged the first swing, but was not prepared for the second one that came back around. The blade phased through his right arm without a mark. Before Neyvahn got hit with any more attacks, he leaped away and reached into his back pocket while the spell took effect."What kinda trick was that!?"
Conner hissed. He tried to lift his right arm, but couldn't. "Wha-what!? WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!?"
Neyvahn pulled the shuriken from his back pocket, throwing it right into Conner's right arm. It shattered inside as he expected, leaving bits of concrete embedded in his bicep. However, with the frostbite spell Neyvahn hit him with, Conner could not feel the pain. He could only stare with a frightened expression. "It's called chipping away, Roseheart."
Conner growled. "No. Get out of my way. She... She belongs WITH ME! SOPHIE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE LEAVING ME, AND THEY THINK A FEW LOWLY PUKES LIKE YOU TWO WILL STOP ME!? PATHETIC!"
Neyvahn sheathed his sword. "GOT TO HELL YOU ROTTEN- NGH!"
and dashed forward, punching Conner in the gut, causing him to bend over in pain. Using the same attacks that were used on him, Neyvahn elbowed Conner in the back. But instead of uppercutting him, Neyvahn instead swept out his feet. He wasn't just going to let this guy walk away with injured arms. This... this fucker didn't deserve much of what he had. Conner Roseheart was a good looking guy, with great genes and great magic. But he wasn't deserving of such gifts. It even made Neyvahn sick, the way he acted so ignorant and belligerent. He didn't know how to move on, and he was going to pay for it.
Neyvahn stepped on his left arm, further worsening the pain. He was going to hit this man until he passed out if that's what it took. Neyvahn knelt down and lifted up Conner's arm, striking him in the armpit, right where a bundle of nerves were, with the second knuckle of his middle finger. Conner screamed out in pain, writhing and squirming, trying to get free. However, Neyvahn wasn't just going to let that happen. He continued his relentless assault, standing back up and stomping in between Conner's legs. Neyvahn knew that he didn't deserve those, not with what he planned to do. He used his other leg and stomped on top of the man's chest knocking the breath out of him."Roseheart, I plan to break every bone in your body. When I'm through with you, you'll wish you could sit up from your bed, let alone move at all."
Neyvahn's voice became menacing, filled with hatred and disdain. He reached for his sword again, but he wasn't able to. Rei was fighting the fire wizard, but he had regained his sight, and what he saw was frightening. He found an opening in Rei's attacks, just long enough to launch a fireball at Neyvahn. Distracted from Conner, the fireball landed a direct hit in Neyvahn's chest. He was flung back and off of Conner, his hair singed at the ends. Neyvahn winced, howling in pain as the burning scarred his skin. The hit was enough for Conner to get back up, albeit with some difficulties. Somehow, he had managed to pop his broken arm back forward, howling in pain and rage.
Neyvahn stood back up, he face still burning from the fireball. He glared at Conner, hatred and shock painted across his face. "You're still STANDING!?"
The two madmen faced each other, new and burning rage running through their veins. What had gotten Neyvahn so fired up? Was it purely because of Conner's behavior. Was is possible for such little things to enrage Neyvahn so much?
It was his weakness, to be blinded by such rage. All because of his hatred for the acts of others. Neyvahn bent down and picked up his sword, wiping the dust off his shoulders. The fight was beyond business now... it was personal.
