A test of might <<Dustin vs Jinx>>

Recommended Posts

Dustin goes through the list of his guildmates and sighs as his eyes land on some players he had never even met. Then a name he recognizes appears. A vague face appears in the boy’s mind, but most importantly an eyepatch. He smiles and nods as he selects the player’s name and proceeds to type out a message. He reads it, over and over again, making sure there are no words out of place to make her think this was a challenge for personal reasons. Just make sure you don’t insult her as a person. Then the rest should take care of itself. His eyes pan over the message one more time as he presses the send button. “I hope she isn’t busy with helping someone. That would be awkward.” He slides his hand through his inventory and check stuff to make sure his gear is in the right place so he doesn’t have to change his gear mid fight like an unprepared prick. “Everything is in place, might as well head out.” He walks out to where the players had been trapped in the game 2 years ago.

I wanna see how strong I am, and you seemed like the person to do that with. Wanna Duel? If so, meet me in the teleport plaza on floor 1, where it all went down.

Alisea Dariem let out a yawn as she opened her single eye. The girl had fallen asleep on the couch, and had completely lost track of time. In fact, she would have remained asleep had it not been for the pinging noise that caught her attention. That sounds was…familiar, although she couldn’t place on why it was.

She looked through her menu, and it soon became clear. She had received…a message? She opened it up and read the short, almost curt message asking her…for a duel? She let out an amused laugh. Was this really happening today, given what had occurred only a few days?

“Of course it is. A Guardians Job is never done…” she muttered in Italian before standing up and scanning over her inventory, and was pleased to see everything was where it should have been. The girl made her way down to the 1st floor, however she didn’t put her equipment on.

Arriving on the first floor, the girl looked around. This was….where that speech too place two years ago. Even with a single eye, it wasn’t hard for the girl to spot the boy who had messaged her. Dustin, the boy from the guild and who had joined her in the raid.

She bowed her head slightly to the boy who had invited her to the first floor “It’s nice to see you against Dustin. You said in your message you wanted to test your strength against me…If I can ask, why did you pick me as your opponent?” She was speaking in Russian to the boy, forgetting that without the auto-translate function, he wouldn’t understand a word she was saying.

Dustin looks at the girl with gray hair and smiles. “Yeah, I wanted to see how strong I am, and you seemed like the best person to go up against. Besides, can’t hurt to get to know my guildmates, and nothing is more personal than combat.” He smiles. His eyes examine her, and he begins to second guess his decision. “I can’t explain it, your name just popped out to me.” He pats the girl on the head and turns. “You do know this isn’t personal right? In fact, I think you’re the coolest tank I know.” He walks about 15 feet away, and nods. “Let’s do this.” He smiles, opening up His menu and selects her name, sending her a duel invite and setting the parameters. “Is half loss okay? I don’t want anyone to get seriously hurt.” He looks at her and begins to think. I hope I didn’t just ruin all chances of us becoming friends. But it’s too late to go back now. I have to get stronger anyways and this seems like the best way to see exactly how much stronger I need to get. She seems like the type to be forgiving I guess. His grip tightens around his blade.

His request…made some sense. In a world of numbers, why wouldn’t you test yourself? After all, she had ended up in battle against players only the other day. Why not some more practice? Although, what confused the one-eyed girl the most was his mannerisms, why did he keep acting as if she wanted no part in this conflict? After all, she was just as interested in testing out what she could do, in a safe environment, as he was.

“I fully understand this is nothing against me. This is to help us grow, after all…that is what friends do for one another no?”

The girl smiled at the boy brightly, as if they weren’t about to start taking swings at one another. That’s when the duel offer appeared in front of her, and without a moment’s hesitation, she accepted the duel. The timer started to count down, and she let out a small sigh as something in her mind slipped away…something important…

“I’m somewhat curious about how it would be to fight for fun…I suppose, this would be a perfect time no?” The girl asked as the timer ticked down. And the girl had completely forgotten the absolute basics. Since her mind was dulled, she had forgotten about the fight seconds after pressing the accept button, and in turn, was NOT wearing any armour. Rather, her white clothes she always wore outside of battle. Her Heavy plated armour, Black Rain, was sitting within her inventory, temporarily forgotten by the Tank player.

Dustin stands as the timer ticks down, watching the girl. Is that her armor? Did she upgrade her gear between the raid and now? It’s not like I want to win because she wasn’t prepared. He tilts his head and blinks. “Hey Jinx... is that your armor?” He asks, making sure she hadn’t forgotten to put it on. It seemed the absent minded tank was constantly forgetting things. How does a tank forget their armor. That’s like me forgetting my sword, or my watch. He watches and waits to see if she puts on gear as the timer approaches the 10 second mark. One last check for all the gear to be in place is in order. He waves his hand as a menu appears in front of him, the options given are simple, divided between profile, skills, inventory and social. The boy clicks on profile, which displays his stats, and current set up. Noting everything’s location, the boy closes his menu. There we go. “Get ready, this is gonna be awesome.” He smiles in an almost sinister manner. Just don’t kill her dillhole, that would not only get you exiled, but probably killed by bossman himself. He scans her body up and down, this is gonna be one hell of a duel. His sword falls on the edge of his shield in a ready stance.

The girl frowned. Armour…what did he mean by that? What did her armour have to do with….Oh…OHHHH

The girl let out a sheepish laugh “Oh…I may have…forgotten that part” She confesses as she opens her inventory, flipping through her items until she found what she was looking for. The first was Black Rain, her heavy plated Heavy Armour. It filtered over the girl, and her small frame was still apparent. However, it did make her appear more compact. The next was her shield, Shield of the Fallen. And lastly, her Rapier…with a name that still confused her. Why would Stryder get her such a weapon?

“I’ll confess, I am looking forwards to this fight” She lets out a small breath “I’m always seeking to learn, even in this dulled state. After all, fighting a player is very different to going up against a monster. Even if it’s unlikely, I’d rather not be caught off-guard by a player”

The girl raised her shield to cover her chest, and moved her right arm back to prepare her strike, however, the girl made no attempt to attack. After all, she had no idea what type of armour, nor enhancements, Dustin was using. And she had to be careful against a player!

Dustin eyes down the woman he saw as an opponent. Not that he hated her. Actually the opposite. He respects her, so he wants to prove he can do more than just attack like a dog. But that’s all I’m good for, so why not try to branch out? Dueling her is as good a place to start as any. His sword begins to glow green. Woah, it’s not blue this time, I guess that means I’m getting stronger. His legs move in as he attempts to attack, landing all five jabs perfectly. The difficult part was he lightning fast transition to the uppercut. After doing that, he launches backwards in a hop, not too far, but just enough to be out of her reach. Damn, Pinball jumps further. Guess I’ll have to work on that too. He stoops low and stands at the ready once more. I have to get faster, to avenge Kadin. I have to make sure I can catch that sorry S.O.B. His eyes dart up to his health bar, noticing his health had dropped way further than hers. She has thorns, she’s smart. He squints, a small grin appearing on his face.

Jinx stared at the boy with her single eye, and waited. She wouldn’t be the first one to strike in this fight, after all, she must observe before she can fight. Thankfully, the boy solved the issue by charging in and striking at her! She managed to raise her shield and intercept the attacks! Thankfully, she managed to keep her shield up and all she took for it was a single point of damage!

Grinning, she let out a slow breath. She had to remain calm, had to remain strong. She had promised him a duel, and even if she hated the idea of hurting him…He had asked for this! She charged forwards, leading with her shield, before swinging her Rapier at the boy! Using her shield to cover herself, Dustin wouldn’t be able to see the rapier coming until the blade pierced his chest in a single strike. Withdrawing her blade, the girl backed up to see the fruits of her labour. The boy was…

Regret flushed through her! She knew her blade had Paralyze, and a bleed effect…But she knew, both of them had been inflicted on the boy!

“Oh..I-I’m sorry…I didn’t mean…” She flinched as part of her knew she had fully meant to get full use of her sword “I mean…A-are you ok?” She asked, concerned about the wellbeing of her duelling partner…Because, she noticed…Her hp was back to a full 300 due to the regen in her shield as a thought dawned on her, and amused her a little. Hestia had mentioned tanks were best at a war of attrition after all.

As the woman’s rapier pieces his chest, one thought courses through the boy’s mind. Well sh*t. This isn’t gonna be easy. He tries to move, but can’t. So she has Paralyze. His eyes dart to his health bar. Oh boy, she has bleed too. This is just delightful. He looks at her, his body still not moving. “I was not expecting that. Holy crap, you’re awesome.” He struggles to say through the paralysis and constant tingling to simulate pain. The red pixels falling from his wound on his chest as he looks at his arms. Come on Dustin, you can’t lose to a tank. All they ever do is stand around. This is just gonna be annoying. He struggles, trying to move, but alas the paralysis was thorough. Wow Kayaba, you’re a prick. “Holy crap, that was rough.” He chuckles. “Whatever happens, don’t hold back.” He blinks. Holding back is the most offensive action you can take. It means you think less of them, so I refuse to let someone hold back when fighting me. He smiles.

The waves of near panic that rushed through Alisea was somewhat dismissed by the girl when she saw the reaction of her duelling partner. If she’d of been hit with a stun, and was bleeding onto the ground…She’d of panicked, and…well, she wasn’t sure what’d she do. But one of the last actions she’d take the same approach as Dustin.

The boy was still on the ground, and that made him an easy target. But as she took a step forwards, she felt herself hesitate. She didn’t want to hit someone when they were down, but…if he wanted a fight. She had agreed, even if she didn’t feel like it was the right option.

Still, she raised her rapier above her head to strike at the boy…And hesitated. She was about to stab at a person who…had no way to defend himself. Was that…right? She shut her eyes tightly and swung her blade downwards, landing a clean blow onto Dustin.

She took a step back, and slowly opened her eyes to the boy, unaware her HP bar had dropped. She took a deep breath “I…” She shook her head, she shouldn’t be worried…but…She had just attacked a person who couldn’t fight back! “I’m sorry…I didn’t want to hurt you, but I promised..a fight..” The girl wasn’t speaking loudly, but Dustin would be able to hear her regardless.

The boy's blade begins to glow green as a smile crosses his face. This is gonna be amazing, though getting here was pretty rough, I'm glad I stuck it out. He launches in, reaching a speed to match that of a car, as his green blade flies forward, hitting the girl six times and he uses an uppercut, though this attack barely dents her HP as his drops way further than hers. "You know, I'm beginning to think this fight was a bad idea, but thanks for dueling me." A friendly smile crosses his face as he stops attacking all together, dropping his sword arm and eyeing the girl from a distance that made his reach seem tiny. As a tank she shouldn't be any faster than me, though this game can distort speed and stuff. So I'm gonna have to watch her like a hawk... from a distance. He smiles, locking his eyes on the woman standing a good 10 feet away. "I'm having fun, are you?" He shouts to the girl. This isn't fair if I'm the only one having a good time. His hand tightens around his sword.

The girl blinked a few times…wait, why had her HP bar taken a hit?! But this was before her opponent had even swung his blade…so why the hell did that occur? Had she missed something?

Caught up in her mind, she barely had time to react to Dustins next attack attempt. Thankfully, she did managed to get her shield up and block the strike. His damage was minimal, and yet, her HP bar had taken a hit…Trying to analise the siuation, the boy had spoken up and caught her attention. He was standing a short distance away from her, and she prepared for him to strike again…yet there was nothing but a smile on his face, despite the fact she was winning their fight.

“I’m just happy to be of assistance” She said calmly. She didn’t like fighting someone, even in a duel setting. However, he had asked and without a valid reason not to…She would help him get stronger, even if she hated herself while doing it. She wouldn’t be a burden!

However, her face shifted into deep thought as she tried to understand where she had taken damage from. It wasn’t his blade, her Regen ability had taken care of that. It wasn’t the bleed, the damage wasn’t syncing up and surely she’d feel if she was inflicted with the bleed effect…Her mind sharprned up as she felt like she could hit herself! Her eye zeroed in on the shield as she raised her own…Did he have Thorns also?! She gritted her teeth as she looked up, right into his eye. So that was his game? A DPS style with thorns attached onto it…Interesting. But this knowledge caused the girl to hesitate on her attack, after all, what else was Dustin hiding from her eye?
