The clash of blades rang out in midday, eight men surrounded Elyscia, as she held her blade true in her hands, beads of sweat dripped down from her skin.

Earlier that day she was caught stealing food from a vendor, the guards attempted to seize her as she fought back with all her might, not using her magic to keep a low profile. She moved throughout the city, a wake of unconscious guards lay in her wake. Now she was in the town center, which was a mistake as she attempted to venture off from the city after securing some food for herself. Now she found herself surrounded by Knights that held straight swords and shields.

They charged her at the same time, as her blade was akin to a katana she utilized the back of the blade to ensure that she would not kill those who attacked. Her ferocity with the blade was unrelenting, as she had training prior to leaving her home.

The first knight who was closest slashed downwards, she angled her blade to parry the attack, as the opening she chopped the back of his neck. He crumpled to the ground - unconscious. The second hesitated, as he saw this she optimized the opportunity to hit the back of his knee, as he fell to the ground she brought her knee up and connected with his jaw. Again felling another knight unconscious.

As the Knights were also skilled with their blades three of them slashed downwards in sync, she crouched bringing the blade above her head blocking the hit, but the damage still rang through her body from the blunt force of three grown men bringing their might down upon her. Elyscia swept kicked the three off of their feet, following up with swift kicks to their face. "Stay down." She muttered to them before going into another ready stance to face the other knights. Whom were all steadily backing off.

It was a quiet day at the market and since it was Hansel's day off he decided to go explore. Instead of the usual Royal Guard's armour he wore when in Leore, he wore his lighter armour he usually reserved for adventuring. He didn't want to wear armour, but he was so used to slipping into armour at the start of the day that it was routine by now. On his hips, as always, was his arming sword and his Tonoyanan steel longsword. The golden pommel shaped like a rising sun reflected the sunlight as Hansel wandered through the streets.

He was in his own world, remembering every detail about the marketplace and the people going about their business. It would make a stunning painting later. His thoughts were shattered, however, when he heard people screaming and running past him...and the sound of steel clashing. He stepped up to a jog and rushed around the corner to the market centre where a young girl was busy giving his knights a bad name. She was good, that mush was clear. These weren't common foot soldiers, these were knights of Leore.

Figuring he should stop this girl from ruining their name further as well as apprehend her for whatever they were chasing her for, he drew his longsword and arming sword simultaneously. "Girl, lay down your arms and surrender. Now." he warned her sternly with a cold gaze from his usually soft blue eyes. He stood about 5 meters away from her with his two swords at the ready, watching her every move.

The Man whom stood in front of Elyscia caught her off guard. Light armour, two swords, but mainly what caught her attention was he was by himself... was he mad? Clearly the Knights of Leore couldn't stand much of a chance, but he came from seemingly nowhere, drew his blades, and told her to surrender - with the added fact that he called her a girl. Who is this man? Why did he have the nerve to step in when the Knights were plain as the day itself; retreating.

Elyscia thought for a brief moment, deciding a special defensive stance was more appropriate for this man seemed as if he could hold his own, maybe even more with a blade. His blue eyes met with hers, his resolve was the real deal.

Elyscia put the blade adjacent to the Man's head (which was an unorthodox method of swordplay), shifted her weight evenly to be able to move swiftly in either the right or left depending on his style. She made slight movements to note if he was watching her body as well as her eyes, which indeed he was. He was skilled, extraordinarily so.

With a scoff, she lunged forwards taking her left hand off of her blade, onto the sheathe, which she detached from her side and used it to attempt a fake out, hoping he wouldn't notice the switch out, she threw it up at his face, then with all her might she heaved herself to the right, then dashed again towards him attempting to slash his tendon in his knee.

The girl held her blade up while he kept his blades by his sides, the tips pointing up. He shifted into a lighter stance as he analysed her. Her hand moved down to her scabbard and his blades went up. The scabbard soared through the air but it was slapped out of the way by the arming sword in his right hand.

As that happened she closed the 5 meter distance and swung down to his knee, which was foiled as Hansel swung his longsword down with speed one might not expect from a blade like that. The blades clashed and the shock from the blow rippled through his sword but dissipated just as quickly. While their blades clashed he followed up with a swing to her head, but angled his blade to hit her with the flat to lightly knock her to the side. All the while he was ready to disengage and counter if she managed to get past his attacks. She was quick, but so was he...this was going to be interesting.

If his blows landed he would take a smooth step back while lightly flurrying his blades around, yet still being ready to block or counter any incoming blows. "You're quick, girl. But you telegraph. Your footwork is decent at least, many people make that mistake." he said in a calm voice as if he's not even in a fight right now. Not only was he trying to mess with her...he was teaching her in the middle of a duel.

The vibrations through the steel gave Elyscia a shock throughout her arm, it was an exciting feeling as her adrenaline began coursing throughout her body. It had been a long time since she had an opponent that was able to telegraph her attacks with her blade like this.

The Man followed up with an attack aimed at her head, her eyes widened with the sheer intensity of how swiftly he was able to weild the long sword in his hand - one handed at that. Elyscia brought her blade up to her head, one hand on the hilt, with one on the back of the blade which was the only course of action she was able to accomplish - to little too late.

Hearing the grinding of steel with sparks flying from her blade, she felt a twinge of pain as part of his blade connected with her head, she staggered to the side, Elyscia had instinctively rolled to the side also grabbing her scabbard as she passed over it, gaining a three meter distance between them. Her usual stoic expression was replaced with widened eyes, as she stood back to her feet, placing her scabbard on her hip - regaining her composure she had noticed that her blade was cracked slightly.

He's teaching me while we battle, he is only playing around with his swordplay... he isn't human... Elyscia had thought to herself - altough her pride had been wounded as she trained since a young age to kill with the added of being called a girl (again), it was time to play both offensive and defensive. She would've been filled with folly if she hadn't listened to his words, he definitely knew what he was doing, this was both the he high and low of the situation. As her expression went back to a face of stone, her eyes changed as had her resolve - this was a learning experience and hell if she wasn't going to use the opportunity to get the optimal experience with her blade.

Sheathing her blade, she placed her left hand on the scabbard, with her right on the hilt, her left hand thumb pushed the blade from the security of the scabbard, this was her most uniform defensive stance, this stance was meant to counter attacks, meant to maim not kill. She began to close the gap slowly, keeping her eyes on him, sweat beaded down her forehead as she kept inching ever closer to him.

Hansel noticed a crack in her expression that gave way to shock. It was only for a second then it faded into her neutral face. His own calm expression didn't falter once. In fact, a feint smirk tugged at his lips for a split second.

She picked up her scabbard and sheathed her sword. She took on a defensive stance with her hand ready to quick-draw her katana. He was a stark contrast. He stood upright in a simple ready position while idly flurrying his blades around him. "That katana of yours isn't a bad sword...but you lack range. If I remember my swords correctly, you might want to get one of those really fun big ones. I think it's called a 'nodachi'?" he commented.

She kept inching closer to him. He saw it quite clearly. He was bigger than her and his weapons were bigger than hers. He waited for her to get to two meters. "A quick-draw like that is good for opening a fight...but it takes time to draw." he explained then lunged as soon as she hit two meters, wanting to prove his point. He swung his longsword to her right arm, but as soon as she tries to defend he would feint, swing his blade around and attempt to give her a small cut on the unarmoured left upper leg. His arming sword was at the ready the whole time to block if she tried to intercept and follow up if she tried to hurt him. He was making sure to stay at the maximum range he could with his longsword, forcing her to come to him if she wanted to reach.

If the man were to look into Elyscia's eyes, he might notice that they have changed - her resolve hardened into that of the coldest of Ice. She had put the man under her scrutiny, watching his movements carefully. He lunged towards her, seeing his hand movements as well as his body movements, she flicked her eyes to his, this was a tactic she was all to familiar with. A feint.

Deciding to take the bait she pretended to draw her blade half out of her scabbard, his transition was flawless, smooth, fluent like a knife cutting through butter - Elyscia had appreciated his movements greatly, as it was a splendid learning opportunity to learn how to wield a sword by a master's hand. Her eyes never left his blade as she now knew that she had gained the advantage for the time being.

In an instant she had summoned her Ice Magic to create an armour-like she'll around her small frame, protecting her vitals, as well as her muscles, arteries and joints from an impact, her magic was perfected to a point in which that it even alloted for fluent movements with connected pieces that acted akin to the rivets in actual armour. His blade clashed into the armour, as it caught the blade. Her eyes met his other blade as she prepared for the counter-attack.

Utilizing all her might she had drew her blade from its resting place, twisting her body and put her body weight into the slash she aimed for his mid-section. If the blow were to connect it would allow for him to feel the full blunt-force of her swing.

His blade hit home...except it did nothing but wobble from the blow. Her skin had turned to ice. A fearsome cold took over his gaze as his face grew dark. He had no issue with magi...but using magic in a duel of steel was an outrage to the knight.

Her blade came for his centre mass, and his movements were a flurry of simultaneous actions. His right arm dropped and he let her blade strike. Between the gambeson and chain mail as well as the space between his body and the armour he didn't feel a thing. As soon as her blade touched his cuirass, his right arm wrapped around it and he used his vambrace and cuirass to trap her blade as well as neatly angle his arming sword beside her throat. While that was happening he spun his longsword around and brought it down onto the base of her blade with enough might to snap her already weakened blade. His movements were quick and powerful, much quicker than that of a normal human being.

If her blade snapped he would give her a hard kick to the chest to send her stumbling backwards and leave her broken blade in his arms, only taking the hilt with her. "Now I don't have an issue with magi, girl...but cheating in the middle of a duel like that is stretching my patience." he would say coldly as he stared her down.
