_Fort Dinosaur_ tidbit  
Square strolled out onto the cleared dirt patch. "Let me show you how Mixed works." He was grinning, his jaw clenching as he started to fire up.

Ebsa walked out to face him. Slid quietly into Speed and brought up a light physical shield. Not too much of an energy drain, but strong enough to spread impacts over a wider area.

Square laughed, and someone dinged a couple of knives together.

Square's punch was easily deflected.

Ebsa sidestepped as the follow up kick started. Threw a rotary push spell, sweeping up behind Square's legs, while knocking his torso back. A three-quarters flip and Square hit the dirt flat on his face.

Ebsa stepped back politely to let the Action Teamer shoved himself up and stagger to his feet.

Square pulled power, concentrating it . . .

Oh surely he's not going to escalate to a fireball! Ebsa shrugged and threw a simple push from the side and Square hit the ground again.
And kept him there until the knives chinged again.

Two Teamers hauled Square up and off while Pixy faced Ebsa.

"Think a few push spells are all you need? Try it on me!" An ugly growl as the man fired up, a hard physical shield domed out around him.


Ebsa shielded, and gave ground as Pixy rushed him. Slowed the hulk to a manageable speed then grounded his shield. Felt the other man's shield. Caught the frequency, matched it with his own. As the shields melted together, he threw a hard, power backed punch. Jumped back and reestablished his shield against his skin.

Should have used a stun spell!

He backed away, blocking punches and kicks, counterpunched and found the man's shield out in front of his body by a few centimeters.

. . . He didn't have a mental shield up . . . doesn't he know how to hold two shields?

Ebsa threw a flurry and punches and kicks at threw a sleep spell as hard as he could.

Tripped over Pixy as he melted.

"What the One Hell!"

The two Teamers who jumped in didn't seem interested in picking up Pixy. Ebsa backpedaled, blocked and punched, kicked . . .

::Duck! ::

An unseen blow from yet another Teamer swooped over his head. Ebsa started throwing spells in all directions. Laugh, spin, hiccup, drunk, itch . . . Then sleep and stun started getting through . . .

Ebsa staggered back from the pile of Teamers on the ground.

The silence was broken by the crunch of popcorn.

Ra'd was grinning, sitting on the ground, leaning back against a log.

Action Leader was staring grimly down at the five men on the ground, variously groaning and snoring. One was still trying to spin, despite being sound asleep.

The new man . . . Inro or some such . . . was staring at Ebsa.

Ra'd got up, grabbed a bottle and walked over to Ebsa.

Boost. Salty, sugary and mineralized. Just what he needed after that mental effort. Ebsa chugged half of it, keeping an eye on Olli.

Acti spoke from behind him. "I'm afraid to ask what you did to get assigned to a desk job."

"That was the most terrifying fun I've ever seen." Pie slapped his shoulder.

"How bloody fast are you?" Okli sounded breathless. "I couldn't even see you move, that last bit."

Action Leader Olli stopped in front of Ebsa. Looked him up and down. "Right. So everyone knows that some Clostuones are very high numbers. But I don't think I've ever met one before. Where the One Hell did you learn how to do that?"

"Oh, well, I'm Montevideo. I know Princess Rael, the Presidential . . ." Ebsa broke off at Olli's nod. "Anyhow, I've worked out with the Black Horse Guards and the trainer there."

"Two lessons?"

"Long, intense, painful lessons."

Ra'd snickered. "You should request some training, Olli. But, word to the wise, don't mention our former association, if you do."

Will I ever get tired of seeing Ebsa beat up people who underestimate him? Not so far!

But surely word will eventually get around that Ebsa is a pretty dangerous guy.

I absolutely haven't gotten tired of watching that closey upcommer Ebsa hand people and groups that underestimate him a lesson.

What is fun is when he is wearing his warrior kafia and people don't believe it only to get their tails handed to them.

The really fun part is Ebsa is so quiet and shields so well people just don't realize how powerful he is. He is as far as I can tell right next there to Ra'ad in raw power.

And in fact /this/ Action Team (except for the new guy, Ra'd's replacement) should know that, ie that Ebsa was ranked higher than Ra'd.

{_First Posting_}==Square showed his teeth. "I've seen your records. You were never in first place."==

He may not have realized that this Ebsa was the one ranked above Ra'd?

I must admit ... I do love Ebsa. Like Ajha, he is ... quiet. And very very dangerous.

But did they bother to see who was in first place? Or just look at Ra'd's records?
muirecan: Withersmuirecan on April 9th, 2017 03:53 am (UTC)
I'm certain they just looked at Ra'ds records. Foolish action team.
