Don't Hate, Congratulate.

Post by Gaza on 8/18/2012, 10:11 am

Going with the flow wasn't Gaza cup of tea, per say, but he enjoyed relaxing from time to time. He was after all, a humanoid. Saiyan's still have human tendencies after all, maybe exaggerated more so. Gaza once ate enough for a dozen people at a buffet he paid his way into with his money from an odd job. The Saiyan stomach was a mystery to all, as so it will remain.

On this particular day, Gaza was lazily walking the streets of East City, he quite enjoyed the east, it was warm but not too hot, and the people were nice enough. As with anywhere he went, he had to deal with people staring at his tail, kids pulling on it, and people asking ignorant questions like, "Are you some kind of monkey?" in their loud ignorant dialect. It was people as rude as them that he did not miss. He felt like when he was protecting the city from some sort of threat, that he wasn't protecting those kinds of people, but he would not allow them to ruin it for everyone.

Nowadays, Gaza was unsure entirely if he was even meant to be a protector, seeing as he'd taken to his destructive Saiyan nature much too often. He did want to protect Earth, at any cost. The cost of protecting now seemed like he'd have to destroy so much first. Perhaps not always things on Earth, but he would need to become someone he hated before he could become someone he wanted to be. Normally that thought would frighten someone, but it excited Gaza.

So that is what he was becoming, he was training himself to become more like his Saiyan opponent, Vegeta. Although Gaza did not know of the man's importance, he was very aware of his attitude. Gaza, in fact, had been taken by surprise that this behavior had came so naturally to him. Perhaps because his parents had raised him as a gentle being, his ancestor's fury was still buried inside him. The fury would set him free!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was naturally warm outside, and Gaza was doing some lumber work. In the sense that he was using his Ki to demolish and set fire too small forests. It was enjoyable, watching the flames dance from branch to branch, tree to tree. He found solace in the flames, and he felt energized watching them! "This, this is what I have to be!" Gaza said, laughing menacingly.

Gaza was now a whole different person than he was when he arrived on Earth, but his goal was still the same. Protect Earth at any cost. This cost was just different than he had anticipated. He enjoyed it.

There was nothing like a warm day and clear skies to brighten ones mood. Ruurik was laying on a plateau, just resting and letting his body be warmed by the sun. It was nice, he hadn't taken time to just relax in quite awhile. Usually being to caught up in training and plans to retake his home world to just lay back and watch the sky. Such things still occupied his mind but to just let himself relax and his tentacles down was nice. Slowly Ruurik's mind turned to home, as it always did.

Memories of his childhood came to the surface, memories of spending his days on chores and relaxing in the sun. It had been a good life, little responsibility and plenty of time to do as he pleased. Ruurik remembered spending long hours in the ocean swimming and eating fish, just going wherever the current took him. One of the things Ruurik remembered well was an under water plant form his home world, it grew these hard-shelled fruits, called furens, that tasted exquisite. Furen's were sweet, sour, salty and tangy all at the same time, Ruurik had never found anything quite as delicious anywhere else in the galaxy.

Ruurik made the taste of the furens, his family had a small farm of them just off the coast of their island, and Ruurik often took them as he pleased. Furens could also be used to make alcohol with strange and powerful properties. The most popular of which was called tivek, although throughout the rest of the it was generally called knockout juice. A single shot of the alcohol was strong enough to put any sentient race, besides the Orcosians, into a drunken stupor in about five seconds flat. Most didn't stay concious long enough for a second shot. Even to an Orcosian it was a strong drink but it was also deceptively flavorful causing many to drink more then they should since it didn't have the sting of a regular alcohol.

Ruurik remembered the first time he'd had tivek it had been during one of the Summer Moondance Festivals about a year before the Saiyan arrival. It had been a wonderful day plenty of food and drink to go around there had been music and merriment. That had been the day Ruurik had gotten his first real kiss too. The girl was in her late twenties Ruurik in his thirties, both were considered "teenagers" by Orcosian standards. Her name was Suria if Ruurik remembered correctly, they had known each other for some time. Ruurik had always liked her for she didn't treat him like a runt as many other Orcosians. Most had viewed their pairing as odd since she was rather beautiful by Orcosian standards and Ruurik was viewed as nothing more then a runt. Ruurik wondered if she had survived the attack on Orco.

Suddenly Ruurik noticed a sharp rise in the temperature, something was going on, no way the heat just spiked that quickly on it's own. Getting up Ruurik noticed that tall flames leaped from the tree tops of the surrounding forest. Many small critters rushed from the burning forest trying to escape the inferno that had consumed their homes. Ruurik wondered what could have caused the blaze, his question was answered when he heard an explosion and turned to see another section of the forest erupt in flames. Ruurik looked up and saw a humanoid figure above the blaze. From this distance Ruurik couldn't tell much about the man, he could sense him though, his power was far greater then most of the planets inhabitants but far less then Ruurik's own power. Ruurik flew towards the man ready to demand an explanation for such wanton destruction. When he approached Ruurik saw all the explanation he needed.

"Damned saiyans you can never just leave things in peace can you", Ruurik growled glaring at the mans tail. Saiyains were scum they took planets and sold them for profit, something that Ruurik tended to conveniently forget that his own people used to do. The Saiyans had taken his home planet and that was what made him hate them, all the other planets they took was just a justification.

"Bet you feel good indulging in your animal instincts you filthy ape. Why not fight a real opponent? Unlike the trees I hit back though", Ruurik spouted off glowering at the saiyan. In Ruurik's mind this battle was already a forgone conclusion, he would show this scum what for, beat him into a bloody pulp and leave him with the guilt. Sure the Saiyain might surprise Ruurik but Ruurik honestly hadn't even considered such an option.

"Damned saiyans you can never just leave things in peace can you", came from behind him. It was an unfamiliar voice, so he was unaware of what to expect.

"Woah now, Squidface, what's the fun in that?" Gaza chuckled out loud, finding his own joke quite funny. He looked the Squidman head to toe, from what he could gather, he didn't seem to be too big of a threat. It appeared as though Gaza would likely prevail if nothing else when they fought, him coming out on top.

"Bet you feel good indulging in your animal instincts you filthy ape. Why not fight a real opponent? Unlike the trees I hit back though" Ruurik responded, Gaza laughed at his response. Who did this guy think he was? Gaza watched as Ruurik ascended in front of him, just now seeing the height of the man. He stood about eight foot high.

"How's the weather up there? Haha, and yes, in case you are sincerely wondering, this is entertaining to me. While not nearly as entertaining It'd be to toss you around a little, and by your words, it's sounding like you are up for the fight." Gaza said, staring up into the eyes of Ruurik. He felt a hot rage cooking inside of him. Wasting no more time on smack talk, Gaza exhaled, releasing a storm of Ki blades, from his position, that surrounded a fairly large area around him and would surely reach the bridge the small gap between the two.

After the blast cleared, Gaza jumped at Ruurik, sending his knee towards what appeared to be his stomach, then he brought his other leg up, kicking at his face. Then falling to the ground, he sprung back up, uppercutting at the man's face. With that being done, Gaza backed off, allowing his opponent the room to attack. He was ready to see what this squidman had up his sleeve. It was going to be a fun fight, whatever the outcome. "You only serve to make me stronger!" Gaza shouted.

The Saiyan's bravado said more about him then then his words, the power gap between them was rather large yet this Saiyan didn't seem t notice. Ruuik assumed that he was likely unable to innately sense power, probably needed a scouter to gauge an opponents strength. Ruurik smirked, rolling his neck and cracking his knuckles. This was gonna be easy, maybe after this warm up Ruurik would find himself a real fight.

Ruurik sensed when the energy built up for the Saiyans attack and was ready when the blades of ki lashed out at him. Ruurik threw his arms wide, almost looking as if he was going to let the blades slice right through his body but at the last second a sphere of greenish energy popped into existence around him. The ki blades crashed into the sphere and came to a stop, lightning like lances shooting out from the point of impact.

The barrier vanished as the ki attack ended, which was when the Saiyan decided to continue to attack. Ruurik didn't know if it was ignorance confidence or more bravado that caused the Saiyan not to press the attack instead waiting till after Ruurik had finished defending himself to attack. So Ruurik used the one thing at his advantage that even those who had no ability to sense power would've been able to see, reach. Before the Saiyan could even get within range to launch any attack with his small body Ruurik's right leg shot out with a kick aimed right at the Saiyan's midsection. Ruurik's foot would likely bury itself in the Saiyan's midsection or else he would dodge the attack, either way the Saiyain wold have to abort that attack.

Ruurik didn't even wait to feel if his foot made impact before he was preparing for his next attack. As his right foot came back down from the kick Ruurik struck out with an open handed strike with his left palm going dead center for the Saiyan's torso. One might notice a faint glow of greenish energy in the palm of Ruurik's hand although he was moving so quick it might be missed. The reason for that was cause Ruurik had a ball of ki energy in his hand boosting the power of his strike dramatically. What had been just an open handed strike now had the potential to knock this Saiyain back into the stone age.

Even then Ruurik didn't relent jumping back a short distance from his opponent before using his ki to propel him through the air at a ridiculous speed. Flipping he threw a downward kick at the Saiyan in an attempt to knock him down into the burning forest. Ruurik finally came to a stop, floating upside down in the air and taking a breath as he readied himself for his opponents retaliation. Being upside down didn't bother Ruurik too badly, most Orcosian's trained how to fight in their planets oceans so they were comfortable with three-dimensional combat. It was just a simple matter of not letting yourself believe that there was an up and down. Every direction was relative only to one's own being, so Ruurik's up was now everyone else's down.

"For all your talk of strength I sense nothing but weakness from you, scum", Ruurik yelled out his voice echoing out across the expanse. It momentarily drowned out even the crackling of the flaming forest below. Ruurik might be a little over-confident in this fight relying too much on his ability to sense energy. Only time would tell.

Gaza watched as the smoke cleared from his Death Gale technique, only to discover Ruurik had used a barrier like ability. "You'll have to teach me that one." Gaza said, a bit impressed. He waited for no more response, he just rushed in for the attack. An action he would almost immediately regret, for it was met with Ruurik's foot, climbing to the gut of the approaching Gaza. He was stunned a bit, but he'd pull through. A Saiyan wouldn't go down from a little kick to the stomach. He stumbled to the side of the previous kick, still in a bit of shock. He was ready to attack again, recovering to stand up straight, turning to face Ruurik just in time to receive a heavy palm to the center of his chest, knocking the wind out of him again.

Stunned, but not entirely unsuspecting, Gaza quickly made his resilience clear. Though the blow had landed, he smiled at him. "The saying is often said, 'What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger.'. This is especially true for us Saiyans." Gaza said with a smirk. He wanted to show Ruurik that even though the blow hurt, it would only come back to haunt him. Ruurik rushed at him, then flipped upside down to kick Gaza's head. He took the whole of the attack to the chest, as he leaned in an attempt to avoid it. He used the attack as a bit of momentum for his offensive.

Gaza rolled backwards in the air, falling towards the earth, quickly straightening back up during the roll, slowing down, then finally stopping. He was now just mere feet above the forest he set ablaze. He rushed at Ruurik, drawing back his fist and taking in a deep breathe. He was ready to punch towards Ruurik's face, but before he got within reach, he exhaled, releasing a flurry of red Ki blades expelled from all arounf Gaza's body. Hopefully it would impact on Ruurik's body, damaging him pretty well. After his last attempt, anything short of nothing would be much better of an outcome. Gaza was displeased with his effectiveness so far in this confrontation. He had failed to do himself justice, being blocked with a barrier from his first attack, then stopped before he could perform his physical combo.

Devising another plot to attack Ruurik quickly, Gaza dashed at him a third time. This time ascending in to the air then kicking towards Ruurik's face, the spinning to throw a knee at the same location. Afterward, he dropped his elbow towards Ruurik's nose. Unsure of how tough Ruurik's race's bone structure was, Gaza hoped it would at least hit him hard enough to break it. So he would look for signs of blood when he retracted from his offense.

Not entirely sure of what too do next, Gaza quickly flew up into the sky, looking down on Ruurik. Flying downwards in a diving style like he was going to crash into the squidman. At the last second, Gaza changed his course of direction so he would be able to fly over Ruurik's head. Spraying flames down on the area of about ten feet in front of Ruurik, then another ten feet behind him. Hopefully making this attack a bit harder to avoid. He just hoped the squidman would be too exhausted to use his barrier again.

Yet again Ruurik heard this saiyan talking of strength, yet he still had yet that he held even an ounce of any true strength. Ruurik had to admit that this Saiyan did take a beating like a champ though, that was all he really seemed capable of doing though. Ruurik hoped to see what this saiyan was truly capable of, so he could throw all of it right back in this fithy ape's face. Ruurik was dissapointed when the saiyan came forth with another foolhardy charge, that's when the saiyan did something he hadn't expected. Unleashed the same attack he had before, it was a clever tactic making it seem like he was rushing in for a strike only to release a set of ki attacks. Ruurik let out a roar, his green aura flaring dramatically, as the blades of ki crashed into it with a rather large explosion.

As the smoke cleared Ruurk smirked thinking he had easily blocked the attack once again. That's when he felt a slight oozing, looking down to see a rather large cut aross his chest, it hadn't cut too deeply but it was more then enough to draw blood. Maybe his saiyan wasn't completely inept after all. Ruurik looked up just in time to see the saiyan swinging a kick at his face, Ruurik caught the kick on his left fore-arm. Catching the knee with his right hand, the saiyan's movements were too obvious too dramatic, he could see the muscles tensing as he moved and could see the movement in the hips even before the knee had begun to move. Ruuriks left hand shot up catching the elbow in his open palm, Ruurik could read this saiyans movements easier then he could read a book.

The strikes had been decent though, Ruurik figured he'd likely have some bruising on his arm and hands from them. When the Saiyan retreated again Ruurik half expected him to throw more of those ki blades at him. The torrent of flames wasn't what Ruurik had expected though, the fly-by nature of his attack gave Ruurik time though. It appeared as if he didn't use it though as he was engulfed in flames, disappearing enterely in the torent. Being obscured by the flames however had caused a critical thing to be missed though, as the flames touched what had appeared to be Ruurik it had evaporated into nothinness. It had merely been an illuson.

In reality Ruurik had used a speed burst to move several yards off to the right before the flames had reached him. Now it was his turn again however, his playful antics however had left him without much time to launch a powerful series of attacks like he had before though. Ruurik rushed at the saiyan his aura flaring dramatically again as he soared at an unbelivable speed through the air. Using his reach as an advantage again Ruurik swung a roundhouse kick with his right leg at the saiyan's hips, following up with a right hook at aimed directly at the saiyans face and to finish it all up he ended with a powerful open palmed strike aimed at the saiyans torso. Ruurik didn't know if this little pummeling was enough to take the saiyan out of comission as he had taken the brunt of several attacks earlier with little signs of damage. However these could be the straws that broke the camel's back.
