[/i][/center]"Come on Gokan! I know you can punch harder than that!!!!"Jolendra Memorial Park, Kymeto
The crackle of flesh upon flesh echoed through the center of the memorial park for the deceased Cristoff Jolendra, the first President of Raverita, attracting all sorts of bystanders to take notice of the source of the violent clashes. And what they saw was quite a show. A crowd of what were once hundreds of people playing with their pets, children, jogging, or tourists simply using the center of the city to look a few miles down the clearing to get excellent distance shots of Kymeto's often nicknamed Politica--a sizable district of the city dedicated to all sorts of government buildings and institutions, from the Mayor's office, all the way toward the Presidential Mansion-- now amassed into a massive circle, hoping to catch a view of the spontaneous attraction.
The Vice President and her boyfriend were having a little tussle.
Situated in a makeshift fighting field outlined by a various members of the Presidential Security Service, the Raveritan Cabinet, four members of Epsilon Delta, Defense Security Katilina Silvermage, as well as President Julia Remenko herself, both Kasumi and Gokan, clad in gym attire, sat dead center of the entire crowd, exchanging blows.
And it all started with a simple game of basketball.
Well, as simple as you can get with a bunch of cyborgs, baseline humans, and a Saiyan.
A simple game that kept superhuman abilities in check--but thankfully not the trash talking--eventually devolved into a sporting sparring session between the Saiyan and the Cyborg Vice President. The purpose of it was twofold; for Kasumi to prove to Gokan that she was just cooler than he was, and to hopefully aid the former monk in somehow overcoming the ki locks that have been placed on him as of late. A few days ago, Gokan told Kasumi about some fox girl that managed to help Gokan bypass said locks, allowing him to achieve his full power for the first time in a long, long time.
It was her hope that some lingering whoopty doop was still present and that enough stress could cause the same thing to happen again. And this time, be permanent. She just had to push him enough.
As the sweat splattered from the impact of fist to palm, Gokan recoiled and intended to unleash another fistful barrage. A superior speed advantage allowed the cyborg to bypass the blows and with a pivot, spun and planted an elbow squarely into Gokan's midsection and followed up with a backhanded fist to his face. "And you can move faster than that, too!"
"Argh!!!" Gokan shouted as he staggered backward, left hand gripping his nose, "I think you smashed some huge ass bugger lodged in my nose! That shit hurt!" As one would expect out of a crowd, there were more than a few chuckles after Gokan made that comment, Kasumi included.
"Well then, use your damn shirt and dig it out! I don't have all day to win this fight! You have dinner to make!"
"Yeah, yeah..." With a sigh, the Saiyan snagged a piece of his shirt and used it as he began to dig for gold. Unfortunately, the first few attempts were pretty much unsuccessful and. "Ugh, I think I just shoved it further up my nose. I should just incinerate the damn thing."
"Don't do that!" Katilina shouted out over the two conflicting fighters and the crowd, "The last thing I want to see is your face splattered all over the ground from an energy blast in your nostril!"
"uhhh....." started Elisia, D-11 of Epsilon Delta, "Do you guys feel that?" Elisia's comment was only directed toward a handful of people present, and those select few immediately directed their attention toward the woman, and then up to the sky.
"That energy....what is that?"
There was a sudden crackle of energy the middle of the park, fracturing the ground between Gokan and Kasumi. All of those present and capable immediately took fighting stances out of instinct as they began to focus on the swell of power right in front of them. A thick haze began to seep out of the ground, slowly but surely taking a vague humanoid form.
"Ahh, Gokan. How unfortunate of you to be the first I come across...." The figure hissed as he stared down at the shorter Saiyan before taking a moment to glance around him. "I was hoping to save you for last."
"Gatsu? The guy who killed your friend? You said he was dead!"
"Ahh, who's this?" The massive Namekian slowly turned around to face the cybernetic Vice President, "Have you become domesticated in my absence?" Without another moment's hesitation, Gokan immediately ignited his aura, allowing his power to freely surge. All the while, the evil Namekian kept his focus on Kasumi. "It seems like your power waned since I last crushed you underneath my boot. Destroying your morale won't be as fun this time around...."
Eyes narrowed, Kasumi released a quick blast into Gatsu a mere moment before Gokan launched himself at his old time foe. Unfortunately, the blast did very little, and Gokan got a fist to the face for his effort. The Saiyan staggered backward, gripping his face and immediately shot into Kaio-Ken, red aura rapidly lapping around his body.
"No Super Saiyan? Oh Gokan, how the mighty have fallen." Gatsu turned to face Gokan, intent on attacking the Saiyan. Kasumi, on the other hand, had other plans. The Nemkian's path was halted by a powerful knee to the back of his head. Gatsu began to stagger, allowing Gokan, his power surging due to Kaio-Ken, to run up and plant a solid strike into the Namekian's stomach. The combo was finished off by simultaneous kicks to Gatsu's head from both Kasumi and Gokan to put him on the ground.
"We need to move this fight, and quickly."
"Yeah, I know. Hopefully, we can get it done quickly."
"I actually felt that," Gatsu casually exclaimed as he returned to his feet to stare at the duo. "Not from you, Gokan. But from her. You're not even worth my time." The Saiyan snarled and began surge his power, Gatsu sprung into action with speed that surprise both fighters. And with a single blow, smashed straight through Gokan's ribcage and shattered his sternum. The Saiyan crumbled to the ground immediately.
"Find me when you recover your nerve, Gokan. I want you to be at your best when I kill you."
Rapidly, the Namekian lifted off of the ground and rocketed into the air, leaving the cyborg and the severely injured Saiyan to nurse his injuries for the time being.[/justify][/blockquote]
