<Master> -= Sliding back from a quick step to move his body off to the right hand side of his previous position. =-
<Master> -= His eyes looked up to see the man before him that he now knew as his enemy. =-
<Opponent> -=With his knees bent slightly, he launched himself from his current position, arching his body towards the left. As he cut past multiple strands of grass, he kept his enemy in view.=-
<Opponent> -=Stops himself along a ridge of rocks, climbing up onto the stone.=-
<Opponent> -=Looks around the for the man atop this rock, his palm upon the sheath of his blade.=-
<Master> -= Driving his body into another step off to the right hand side, he brought his body around to pad about the area. =-
<Master> -= Already strafing, he brought his hand out into the air, causing a slight tear in the dimensions, particularly the ethereal. =-
<Opponent> " Hm .. " -=His eyes narrowed slightly, in order to scan the area more accurately for the opposition.=-
<Master> -= Then grasping his own blade, a massive four handed sword of about five feet in length, he smirked slightly as he continued to pad about. =-
<Master> -= Whipping the blade out from the plane on which it was secured, he brought it into physicality as he stopped his arcing movement in favor of a backstep. =-
<Opponent> -=A grin formed upon his countenance as he detected the man's presence via energy, jumping off from the rock within a series of flips, landing heavily upon the grassy terrain.=-
<Master> -= Drifting upwards over his head with the sword, he allowed it to descend neatly in front of him in a defensive stance as he waited. =-
<Opponent> -=His heels were spread shoulder width apart, knees bent slightly. =-
<Master> (( Phone. ))
<Opponent> ( Alright. )
<Master> (( Back. You'll have to excuse these intermittances, I'm at work. =) ))
<Opponent> [ No problem. ]
<Opponent> [ Whenever you are ready. ]
<Master> (( Continue. ))
<Opponent> [ Alright. ]
<Opponent> -= Bending his knees slightly, he launches himself from his current position, striding quickly along the grass toward his opponent. =-
<Opponent> -=Once reaching his front, about 10 feet away, makes a quick right, stopping himself at the man's blindside.=-
<Master> -= Lifting the tip of his blade enough to angle it into a strike for the oncoming opponent, he awaited his foe as he slid his right foot back a bit into a more ready posiition. =-
<Master> -= Bringing his body about with a step of his left foot to again face his opponent this time, he brought on his bearings on the man. =-
<Opponent> -=Cuts left, avoiding the man all together, leaving no trace of himself but thin air.=-
<Master> -= Sliding off to the left with a bit of a sidestep as he came about, he looked in on the form of him to smile a bit, nodding for combat. =-
<Master> -= Ducking on down low to the ground this time, he extended the tip of the blade into the air above him, trailing the form that was his foe. =-
<Opponent> -=Appears standing upon the same rock where he once stood, glaring down at the battle field from above.=-
<Master> -= Then sliding on back up into a rushing dash for his foe this time, he kicked off his prepared back leg in a rushing movement. =-
<Master> -= COming in with blistering speed for his foe, he extended the blade for the chest of the man as he moved. =-
<Opponent> -=Jumps off from the ground with a shout in a series of flips, with just enough velocity and momentum to land beside the enemy.=-
<Master> -= Driving in with the blade , he came about to slash at his shoudler yet again, coming to face him this time.
<Master> =-
<Master> -= Then stepping on back with his blade up to defend from any oncoming attack, he moved left slightly looking at him. =-
<Opponent> [ Hm. So the attack did not count? ]
<Master> (( Yours, or mine? ))
<Opponent> [ I didn't have one. ]
<Master> (( Ah. Right. ))
<Master> (( That's what I thought, so... what about mine? ))
<Opponent> [ I moved, but I did not state dodging your attack. ]
<Opponent> [ So let's continue from the part where you stab my shoulder blade. ]
<Opponent> [ Ready? ]
<Master> (( You should be fine after that... yeah. 1-0. Ready. ))
<Opponent> [ Yep. ]
<Master> -= Driving in with his blade from the right side of his body in a sweeping motion.... =-
<Master> Phone.
<Opponent> [ Alright. ]
<Master> (( Continue... ))
<Master> -= Driving in with his blade from the right side of his body in a sweeping motion.... to slide the blade in for the man's gut this time as he moved in a step for the man, coming forward for him with this attack. =-
<Opponent> -= The blade pierced his skin, seeping halfway into his deltoid. The attack send him shuffling back a few feet, yet he wasn't effected too much overall.=-
<Master> -= Then stepping off to the left again in an attempt to come in behind the foe, he moved slightly back from him. =-

<Opponent> -=Or not, the blade now piercing his gut slightly, his body bending over the wound in slight agony.=-
<Master> -= WHipping the blade back to his own left side only to launch it back across the form before him's back this time. =-
<Opponent> [ ? ]
<Opponent> [ I don't understand the action. ]
<Master> -= Sliding around to the left yet agaiin, bringing his form to circle about his enemy. =-
<Opponent> [ Hey, I'm talkin to you. ]
<Master> (( Brought the blade across my body to my left side, then slashed in again. )))
<Opponent> [ I see. I was confused about that. ]
<Master> (( Sorry. =) ))
<Opponent> [ Alright, continue. ]
<Master> (( I'll try to give this stuff more clarity. ))
<Master> (( Indeed. ))
<Opponent> -= The barrage of attacks left him a little dazed, trying to cover up his wounds with pride. =-
<Master> -= Stepping on back with his left foot, he rotated his body to the left as well, completely coming to a halt. =-
<Opponent> -=His ego released enough adrenaline to regain concentration, as he grapped the hilt of his blade with all 5 digits of his left palm.=-
<Master> -= Changing direction into this full left spin, he headed back into the space behind the swordsman before him with the blade trailing behind him. =-

<Master> -= Coming around into a backflip as he trailed the long blade for the chest of the swordsman, coming around with strenght to attack. =-
<Opponent> [ I don't remember Freeform too well, should all attacks be acknowledged? ]
<Opponent> [ Or rather, just counted? ]
<Master> (( It's courtesy to acknowledge. ))
<Master> (( And it depends on the particular VERSION. ))
<Master> (( I don't care either way, pick one. ))
<Master> (( Generally, if I'm affected, I acknowledge. ))
<Opponent> [ Right. ]
<Opponent> [ Let's play it that way. ]
<Master> (( Was that a fair interpretation by me, above? ))
<Opponent> [ I guess, yes. ]
<Master> (( Thought I didn't state the impact, I got hit. ))
<Master> (( I'll acknowledge that soon, continue. ))
<Opponent> [ Alright. ]
<Opponent> -=Places the blade back into its sheath, finding it unnecessary to use this early in battle. =-
<Master> -= Stepping on back from his foe to regain his mental stability as an old man, he waited as blood wept from the open wound in his temple. =-
<Master> -= Watching this, he maintained the grip on his blade for a moment, before turning his head to the side, maintaining his eyes upon his foe. =-
<Opponent> -=Launches himself toward the enemy, stopping at his left side, palm held out infront of him.=-
