Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
It would be a completely blatant lie for Arianda to be surprised that Elyss was not taking the fact that she wanted to try and create a happy memory with a kiss. Technically speaking, the concept isn't exactly flawed. It is certainly unorthodox, but better than Ulv's method of training; latex maid suits. The demon let out a soft sigh before Elyss seemed to scoot back on the couch away from her. Clearly, the idea was not going across well.
Arianda watched as Elyss seemingly went from questioning, to confused, and likely to extremely embarrassed all in one go. It was strange, really. Arianda would have thought that a woman like Elyss, who had been exposed to ULV would be used to getting kissed out of the blue; or at least get it suggested. Then again, Ulv probably didn't do that much. She liked her latex suits a bit too much sometimes. Arianda let out a soft sigh once again as Elyss was silent, seemingly staring off at nothing before she finally looked towards Ari.
A sudden pang broke out in Ari's heart. It wasn't pain, just a strange longing as she saw Elyss's adorable shy nature. However, it faded quick as she was instead filled with a realization just how fucking adorable Elyss was. Then came the words, words that made Ari smile a small bit. Strange, she had been surprisingly accepting to getting kissed by Ari. Well, that was fine with Ari; kissing a hot girl was always fun for Ari. So, she smiled at Elyss and gently pulled her close and wrapped the girl's arms around her neck; doing best to kiss her without sitting on her lap.
"Alright, well, just push me away if you don't like it or are done, okay~? And if it holds as a good memory, then all the better, Elyss~"
Arianda smiled still, but, the angle was so awkward. She let out a soft sigh, hoping Elyss wouldn't freak out at this. The demon gently moved so she was now straddling Elyss, sitting on her lap as she waited just long enough to see if she wanted to turn back before lips met lips. Elyss would likely feel and see it happen as Arianda kissed her, her arms wrapped around the woman's neck once more as the Angel of Conflict kissed her deeply. Maybe a bit too deeply.
Arianda got a bit into the kiss, her tongue seemingly wanting to get in on the action for a moment before Arianda stopped herself from going overboard and held the kiss. Ten seconds... twenty... nearly a full minute had passed, if Elyss didn't stop Ari, before she finally broke away with a small gasp; giving Elyss's lips a very tiny swipe of her tongue, barely noticeable, before she leaned back and put her hands on Elyss's shoulders. She was still sitting on her lap, where Elyss could feel that Ari really was as light as she looked. However, when they kissed, there was the experience of someone who had done such an act many times before. She smiled at Elyss, hoping that what she did had a positive effect; a good memory.
"There... if that worked, happy memory! We can work on focusing on that memory next, which will be important for you. There will come a time where, when you use your powers, thinking of a good memory will be so natural almost nothing could make you lose focus. But, that'll take practice. And I promise, you'll have time to practice. But first..."
Arianda looked at Elyss carefully, as if making sure nothing went wrong; her eyes carefully looking, searching, into Elyss’s.

THE YOUNG BEAR
To say Ulv sexualizes her on a constant basis would be a lie. The worst is, in fact, the latex maid suit. Everything else the giant woman has done was, indeed, mild to forcing her out into the public in a suit designed to make her as uncomfortable as possible. Though, Elyss feels someone would probably enjoy being dressed in that cursed outfit, but Elyss knows she doesn't. Something like this is still extremely new to her even with what Ulv has done. There is being forced and suddenly caught in strange situations, but being asked if one would mind being kissed or anything just adds a whole lot of mental stipulations in one's mind. This isn't something she doesn't have an immediate say in or something that is part of some deal. No. This is her own will being tested and given room to react accordingly. It's not just a random kiss to blindside her, but it's a gentle question with an obvious sense of duty attached to it. Arianda wants to help her have a happy memory to further help her control this anger within her; something she can anchor to when she feels herself slipping. Are there other ways of going about this? Elyss is not quite sure. She's never really been one to think about creating long lasting memories. Hell. Even her time in the Tavern was mostly all work and little play. Maybe... Maybe she does secretly want to experience something sensual like this, but Ulv has taken the idea of such in her mind and twisted it a bit with her bravado and direct approach that never seems to slow or give her much room to question if she truly wishes it. Being asked if she wants a kiss has truly... caught her off guard, and has made her horrifyingly curious to how something consensually shared would feel.
Her face is still a mad blush though with the thought of kissing Arianda. She's busy mentally preparing herself for this, but she feels it's in vain for nothing could prepare her for the first kiss that she actually asked for. Her arms are stiff when they are pulled up around Arianda's neck.
'Oh gosh. Relax dammit!'
She trying her best to remain calm, but that's impossible. She nods however giving a small dry smile that shows just how unready she truly is. She's not backing out though. If it's too much, she'll just stop it, but she must try at least. Then, she's suddenly being sat on, and that just causes a whole plateau of emotions to rush through her all at once as she gasps and looks down taking a deep gulp. This suddenly went from a small innocent interaction to something so scandalous in her mind. She almost felt that this is going to be something more than she bargained for. She did not understand that the positions they were in a few seconds ago would make it hard to share a kiss, but this seems a bit too much. Elyss rose her head with big wet onyx eyes that made her look too much like an adorable child in shock right before her thin lips met Arianda's catching her off guard yet again.
Her eyes widened at first, but quickly, they slowly grow dim as her eyelids closed slowly. This is interesting. It didn't feel like a simply sharing of lips. Arianda is too into it, and with Elyss' incompetence, she is easily swept away into the demon's advances. To say it didn't feel good would be a lie. Arianda's lips are soft just like her body that Elyss subconsciously feels her arms tighten and pull closer. Arianda, obviously, isn't new to this sort of thing, but the fact Arianda moved with such ease and grace already told Elyss that she is a veteran. Though, Elyss is beyond thinking about why the woman on top of her is so good at this. Her mind is solely focused on the lips on her that suddenly feel a bit more wet as a tongue is felt. That spooked her for a second, but it is soon over, and she didn't even know a whole minute had passed when Arianda finally receded leaving her blissful lips with a numbing tantalizing sting that begged for the sudden absence to be filled with sudden to stop the encroaching coldness enveloping the heat that was once there.
Elyss is completely unbalanced and out of focus. Her eyes, as Arianda will see, are strangely a different shade of black; a soft haziness about them making them appear a bit more grey and distant. Some would call that lust. Her breathing is a bit heavy, for she was just kissing another for a minute straight with barely any breaths in between, but the slow rising and falling of her chest is enticing one could say. Is she even looking back is the question. Her face is just facing forward with her lips slightly parted as if she wished to speak but is lost on what to say. To say the least, she looks completely enraptured by Arianda's actions, and anyone could see that if Arianda tried to continue, Elyss may barely put up a fight. She needs a moment to cool down a bit more before she is truly capable of holding a decent conversation. Her flushed face does confirm that this is probably going to be a memory that Elyss is going to keep for a while and look back on a lot whether good or bad. Probably leaning on the good side though.
Arianda had enjoyed a full minute of kissing that was meant to be fuel for a fire of good memories; which seemed to fuel something else in Elyss. Lust. Arianda didn't notice the telltale signs of getting turned on until she had pulled her lips away from Elyss's to look her in the eyes; which seemed to be peering far away. Peering into space that Ari could not see. She blinked a few times at Elyss, gently putting a hand on her cheek as she tried to use some sort of stimuli to wake the girl from her reverie. Sure, it was tempting to get right back to kissing and pull Elyss under into fun times; lewd shenanigans. However, now was training time, not take to the bedroom time.
Arianda looked at Elyss, the color in her lips vibrant from their recent lip, and maybe saliva, exchange as Arianda waited for her to recover; to talk some. She kissed Elyss on the forehead as if to comfort her; give her some sign that she was okay. A sign that nothing more was going to happen and they weren't going to do more despite any lust floating around. Well at least not at this instant. Arianda had a feeling that a bit more than just that kiss would transpire. At least, after training was over. Training first!
After Elyss had recovered from her sudden kiss assault, Arianda would finally slip off her lap and give her a big smile. Likely, Elyss is probably still a good measure done in by that kiss. It was certainly overboard, being a full minute before Ari had finally stopped kissing Elyss in such a way that most people would definitely just be done for; at least when it comes to cognitive thought. Luckily, Elyss was a bit tougher. So, when Elyss was ready she reached a hand out; offering support. After all, Elyss may be a little shaky; but she would have Ari for support and the time to fully recover as they walked to the area out back. It wasn't private, no, but it was spacey and good for training. Arianda didn't have time to add any secret training areas quite yet, but, maybe soon! For now, however, she stuck to training the hot red head for today. After all, Elyss would need to control that power before she could make real progress! And probably a rigorous day of training before Ari took her back inside to rest. And... maybe other things? Who knows~

THE YOUNG BEAR
Lust? That's about right. What is one suppose to feel during and after a kiss of such intensity and longevity? Arianda should have known better than to act with such passion on the sexually naive individual that is Elyss. The redheads lack of experience with such makes it easy for her to be swept away by someone with more maturity in these acts. One could imagine what would happen if Ulv actually pressured Elyss into a similar situation that wasn't just to annoy her.
Though, it is quickly fixed with a simple pat on the cheek that causes her blank stare to become slightly more coherent as her foggy onyx eyes move to Arianda finally only noticing the woman's lips. Then, her forehead is kissed. There is a blink, and another blink followed by more quick blinks that soon has Elyss jumping back and gasping before her hands fly up to her face. A groan drips from her mouth as she shakes her head; the mad blush on her cheeks the reason for hiding her face.
Her words stutter horribly before she gives up shaking her head more. She, then, peaks from behind one of her fingers; a singly shiny black eye looking to Arianda in pure embarrassment. This is surely going to be a memory. And, with the way her thoughts are rapidly jumping from the girl's body, to her pretty face, and ending on self-berate for such thoughts, it is a sure that her thoughts are in a joyous lewd disposition. Though, this is it. It was simply a kiss meant to give her something happy to think about. Elyss feels thinking too hard on this moment will cause her to feel more than a sudden bout of happiness. That may become a problem in the near future if this is all she uses to anchor herself.
At least Arianda slid off of her; the presence of the other slightly missed, but appreciated in her attempts to calm down and focus. Elyss doesn't say anything, but is quick to take the hand held out to her rising slowly and flexing her toes to make herself stable. The experience does have her a bit off balance, but the fact someone sat on her for a good minute has her legs a little sleepy, and once they start walking, that numbness is quick to vanish when they reach outside into a field. Her face looks around as her initial shyness starts to melt away to wonderment.
"I-Is this where we're going to be training?"
She sounds a bit energetic. The thought of actually learning how to fight a bit better quickly overtakes any embarrassing thoughts still in her head as she digs her toes into the ground and steps away from Arianda. She feels invigorated; murky memories appearing and fading away just as quickly surfacing in her mind. Each one a long distant recollection of her fights back when she was alive, but the memories fade to quickly, and, yet, she feels as if her body still remembers physically movements that should not be there. And, just like that. She is suddenly taking a stance and throwing a punch forward with more skill than one would expect; her arm straight and balance with her hand balled up into a fist.
"Ah... This feels... therapeutic."
She mumbles closing her eyes and taking deep breaths. She stands still for a bit realizing that she's already recovered from earlier. Leave it to the thought of fighting to ease her nerves, and with her mind clear, she turns to Arianda with a soft smirk and excitement in her eyes for the first time since they've met.
Arianda was glad to see that Elyss had recovered reasonably well after Ari did indeed go a bit too far with her kiss. Hopefully, Elyss would get more happy memories to use as time went on. However, she would certainly have that one to use as long as she needed. Then again, Arianda did hope she did not fall for her. As much as Arianda thought Elyss was the hottest, and cutest, plus she has seen in a while; she wasn't the Redhead's type. It's not that Ari would have liked it, it's more like Elyss could find someone better than a sex loving demonic lunatic. But, Ari's simply getting ahead of herself.
After Elyss and Ari had gotten out to the back yard, and Elyss had seemed to recovered quite well from Arianda's little "happy memory" treatment; which was good. She couldn't exactly train someone who was distracted by, well, a bit more than just the scenery. Hell, if Elyss had looked at Ari a bit harder earlier, she probably wouldn't have been able to help herself either. Honestly speaking, the girl really was just giving her the up and down treatment with her eyes before they started to move. Even then, Ari probably felt some eyes on her back; maybe a bit lower. Regardless, she smiled at Elyss as she said she was ready; they were finally getting to why Elyss was here.
"Good~! Now then, I want you to try and focus on that memory. You basically need that good memory to anchor you to you; to who you are. Of course, this will only help you as long as you can keep focus upon it; once that focus starts to waver you need to cut of your powers. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing control and causing more harm than intended."
Arianda walked a bit closer to Elyss, pulling scissors out of her pocket which grew to be at least as tall as Arianda was; and she jammed the tip of the scissors into the ground and it turned into a mechanical scythe. She leaned against the scissors, now scythe, and looked towards Elyss; with Ari looking surprisingly casual about simply just pulling a pair of scissors out of her pocket that suddenly became big and is now a scythe. Completely natural.
"This may take a couple tries, but, you need to lock that memory into your mind and tap into your power. Don't worry about hurting me, I'll be able to subdue you if need be. If you can get that control, however, I won't need to worry about subduing you. So, if you are confident you can focus on that memory without issue, make it the forefront of your thoughts, anchor it to your being, and sense of self; then start whenever you are ready."
Arianda still sounded the same, but her pose, her silver eyes that seemed to be trying to examine Elyss as if she was under a microscope; it was certainly different. It was like a switch had been flicked and Arianda dropped any carefree attitude in an instant and became serious. Not to mention, just the simple fact that she had her weapon out made all the difference between serious and not quite as such. Not to mention, Arianda was subtly setting up some defenses just in case Elyss did fail her first time.
First off, Arianda silently set up a field full of conflict that would not effect Elyss unless she lost control; when she did, the conflict would infiltrate Elyss and either knock her out briefly or shut off her power. That depended on how bad Elyss was off. However, if that did not take immediate effect, Arianda would simply restrain her until she calmed down. But, thanks to their disparity in power, it is unlikely that Elyss would be able to resist her powers easily. Regardless, Arianda would be making sure that if Elyss lost control, she would be subdued either quickly, if not immediately. Besides, if worst came to worst, Arianda could simply enter her Possessive Drive of Conflict to make sure she was subdued before continuing again. Now, things were up to Elyss and if she could properly control herself with something happy to anchor the woman to who she is.

THE YOUNG BEAR
Does Elyss even know her type? She thinks Ulv is rad and Arianda is cute. And, of course there is more to it than that, but it seems quite the range: a bull of a person to someone soft and sweet. She'd probably be unable to say until she actually meets the one person who she feels she could spend eternity with if that ever occurs. Elyss is doubtful about such, but Arianda and Ulv finds her attractive. There has to be many more. She's not looking though. It's obvious where her interests lie at the moment. Her eyes may have been wandering before, but now, they look quite direct and clear.
So, the task: fight without getting too angry and remain in control of herself. Easier said than done, but this is just the process she has to go through to get where she wants to be. Elyss nod taking a deep breath and thinking back on that kiss. Well, it did something which is to get her to blush a bit as she snorts and opens her eyes pouting a bit. Maybe she doesn't need to think too hard on that just yet, but she's getting herself focused for this.
And, that is when Arianda pulls out a pair of scissors that grow into huge sharp tools that, then, become a scythe. Whoa. Wait! What just happened? That was unexpected, and actually pretty cool, but still. Elyss is confused about this causing her to drop her focus for a bit and give Arianda a 'really?' look.
"I see... This is going to be interesting. Just don't cut me up too badly."
She responds knowing that Arianda is probably way stronger than what Elyss first imagined. This is going to be really interesting. Though, Elyss is quick to note the serious about those grey eyes, and her onyx colored orbs hardened themselves becoming a shining void upon her serious face. She takes a deep breath once more and focuses again on the task at hand.
She begins mentally encouraging herself to remain herself, and without a word moves forward. Her arms fly up in a sort of boxing guard moving on muscle memory. To Arianda, Elyss is probably not moving nearly as fast as the redhead thinks she is, but she is quick to be upon the demon, and without hesitation, swings her right fist to the side aiming for the side Arianda's head that her scythe is not occupying. Of course, her left arm is up ready to guard that side of her face, but there are many openings still available for counter attacks.
Arianda gave Elyss a big grin when she got that 'really' look. Hey, even Ari liked to show off sometimes; even if it was accidental in this case. She just wanted something to lean against and got out her scissors. Soon, however, she noticed that Elyss was definitely getting serious. Arianda watched her carefully, waiting to see if she lost control during their exchange. Well, whatever the case may be, the breathing and the look in her eyes spoke that she was certainly working hard.
"I'll do my best hun, but you won't get out unscathed~"
Soon, however, Elyss took up a fighting stance and came charging at Ari. It wasn't wild, no, it was a controlled attack that was meant to clock Arianda upside the head. Arianda watched, as if Elyss was in slow motion, before she yanked the scythe out of the ground, and used the shaft of the scythe to shove Elyss's fist, and arm, away from her and cause the punch to fall short.
Of course, Arianda wasn't going at full strength, she was holding back so she did not harm Elyss needlessly; and she was also only going a slight bit faster so that Elyss can catch up if she pushed herself. However, the demon was constantly watching, waiting; looking for not only openings but also signs of Elyss losing control. Of course, she had not counter attacked, not yet; she was dodging until she had an opening. Maybe a wide swing that missed and caused her to come off balance. Otherwise, Arianda would wait until right after Elyss missed an attack. Once that punch missed, Arianda aimed a swift kick to the woman's stomach. Hitting her hard enough for it to hurt, sure, but not hard enough to cause any real damage. After that, Arianda still seemed to be calm, holding that scythe in her right hand as she waited for Elyss to likely charge again. Not only was Elyss strong for her level, but she also had some prowess in a fight; making Arianda hum softly as she dodged around another attack. After she dodged that attack, her scythe was a blur as a thin cut went up Elyss's left forearm. It wasn't deep, it was actually quite shallow since Arianda had just cut the woman with her scythe; but it did hurt.
"Elyss, don't come straight at me; weave your way to me. Be smart, feint, create a distraction to hit me; do that, and you could get a shot in~"
Arianda grinned at Elyss, truthfully wanting the girl to be able to hit her at least once. She was keeping herself from moving all that much faster than Elyss, and doing her best not to injure the woman; so the chances of the woman getting a good hit in where very good. The clincher was that she needed to remain in complete control until they finished. Besides, Elyss needs to learn control one way or another. If she thrives for fights, not a bad way to learn control while in a fight. Besides, if all went well, Ari would make sure her wounds were tended to before they finished up the night; and Ari did other things. Well, possibly~

That was fast; quite literally a blur before Elyss' eyes. Though, it wasn't impossible to track, but it still swatted her fist off target. Arianda is fast. That's for certain, but Elyss can see she isn't that fast. Though, in the back of the redhead's mind, she knows the other is holding back. How much is she holding back?
Elyss huffs, and is quick to take another step forward as her fist goes wild; her left arm outstretching; another punch coming for Arianda's fact, but the woman dodges. That begins a rinse and repeat cycle with Elyss throwing punch after punch to try and land one onto Arianda as Arianda simply barely dodges each attack. This makes it unclear to Elyss whether the idea of actually landing one is a possibility. Maybe...
Elyss suddenly, drops low and goes up with her left aiming for an uppercut hoping the change of direction and type of attack would work, but of course, it doesn't leaving Elyss' stomach wide open as her body is outstretched, and near immediately, she feels a foot in her stomach. She gasps feeling pain run her from her stomach to her head as she loses footing and trips backward rolling a bit before ending up on her knees.
She groans out real quick rubbing her stomach, but there's no time to slow down just yet as she's quick to her feet; a durability about her that isn't quite normal for her apparent power level. Dammit, Elyss focuses her eyes on Arianda and goes for a right hook again knowing it won't land, but she wants to get Arianda back into the groove of dodging to try to find a different way to go about it, but this time, it doesn't go that way.
She flicks her eyes to the left noting Arianda spin that way, but there's nothing she can do about it as she's too into the motion of swinging and stepping leaving her left side wide open, and she feels the metal of that scythe cut into her skin as if it were butter causing her to wince heavily and stumble forward catching herself before falling.
She winces again as she turns to Ari placing a hand over the cut on her arm, but that makes her wince once more and let the cut go finding the stinging burn of it dreadful. This is actually the first time she can recall being cut like this; her onyx eyes looking at the long shallow gash. She flexes her left hand slowly watching the cut move accordingly. It hurts, but it's just a cut, and it's nothing that seems too damaging. Though, she barely could see her weapon move before she felt it wound her. Maybe it's just her inexperience with fighting against armed individuals. She'll have to be more careful.
She huffs and throws quite the glare towards Arianda, but there is nothing angry about it. If anything, it appears more logical than deranged as if she's somehow focusing more than before on the woman. It seems the plan is to dodge and attack randomly when an opening is available. She'll have to somehow use that to her advantage, and she thinks of something quickly as she takes another boxing stance.
"Let's try this... again!"
She pushes off the ground once more charging Arianda. This time, however, her punches seem a bit different. They don't have the same aggressiveness as before even though they come in a flurry. Elyss' eyes also seem a bit strange as they move around and never focus exactly on Arianda's face as if she is checking out the girl in the middle of a fight... What's the plan here?
Arianda was pleased to see that Elyss had been adapting to her dodging but she was also slightly sad to see Elyss get effected quite hard by that kick; it sent a pang through Ari's heart. However, she was glad to see that despite that, Elyss was still staying in control quite effectively. Arianda continued to weave, dodge, avoid, and simply keep Elyss at bay. However, soon after Arianda had given Elyss quite the cut on the arm she appeared to take a different take on all this. It's not that Elyss was suddenly enraged or losing her sense of self; nothing like that. She simply was taking a different approach.
Checking out Ari in the middle of battle would be an apt description for where Elyss's eyes were going. If Arianda were less experienced, she would definitely had been embarrassed about a cute girl's eyes wandering her body. But, instead of being flustered, she instead smiled at Elyss, dodging around her wild attacks again and again; occasionally returning a hit or two that again, weren't hard, but hurt.
One of those returned hits was a cut to her right forearm; the same length and depth of the other. She didn't want to maim the poor girl, just hurt a little bit while they were fighting. Of course, it was also some encouragement for Elyss to really try and slam her fist into Ari. Really, she would get there eventually; and eventually wasn't actually that far away.
Eventually, however, Arianda was going to mess up. Elyss was throwing wild punches, aiming for any weakness, any opportunity; and when Arianda danced around one of her punches, that chance came. If Elyss saw that chance, or did it on purpose, she would find Arianda's right side wide open for a good solid punch. Of course, Arianda knew it, and if she could, she would simply move away; however, she was purposefully holding herself to a certain speed. Because of this, Arianda would likely feel a punch connect with her right side and cause her to stumble a tiny bit. After all, Arianda was still rather solid despite her stature and body-type; an advantage of being a demon. However, after Elyss connected that punch, if she did went for it that is, Arianda would grin at the woman quite widely and retort.
Arianda would soon move towards Elyss, jamming her scythe back into the ground and taking a different stance to Elyss. Her fists were up, much like Elyss's; except she was being precise. Left jab towards her shoulder, one that could be dodged quite easily if she tried; but then came a swift punch to the gut. Arianda had thought that if Elyss dodged, or was hit, it would leave her open for a good couple of hits. But, afterwards, she spun back to her scythe and yanked it out of the ground; spinning it behind her and grinning. She wanted Elyss to hit her more, not for any weird reasons; but because she wanted to gauge how powerful the girl was.

THE YOUNG BEAR
It's all part of the plan. She just has to keep up the pressure without truly committing to anything. Though, such tactics only work against those that are weaker in combat. Facing Arianda, this is just a test to see if Arianda would slip up. There is no doubt that this will eventually be all for naught. Arianda is just dodging with ease as always waiting for her opportunity to strike which she does. The strategy to try and watch for openings isn't working and Elyss is just getting beaten wincing each time, but she keeps on pushing trying to get the other to slip up. She didn't even know when she got cut again, but she can feel the stinging coming up her right arm. That stinging causes her to grit her teeth and start swinging more seriously again as her annoyance with this fight starts to grow. Just one hit. One hit to prove this isn't all a hopeless endeavor.
And, somehow, through some miracle, her fist feels something. She is actually caught off guard as she sees her fist push into Arianda's right side. A hit, and it causes the other to stumble just a bit. Though, that shows just how strong Arianda is. Elyss was swinging madly with more power than she probably should have been for simple training, but seeing Arianda barely injured by her punch causes her to realize that holding back is just hindering her progress. Wait, she didn't even realize she was going at the other so madly.
She had let her frustration get to her during these exchanges, and of course, there is a price for such. Her arms are shaking; the wounds along her forearms starting to bleed lightly. The cuts weren't deep, but with her mad swinging, she had tore the wounds wider than they originally were. There's no time to worry about that. Getting wounded in training is normal. Arianda is already coming back at her with her fists instead of her weapon.
Elyss' eyes widen as she raises her shaky arms to guard, but she knows this won't do against the faster demon. She dodges the one punch to her shoulder, but then, feels bile rise somewhat as another fist connected into her gut. Ah! That hurts, and from there, it's just Elyss trying to dodge and block punches; her arms a bit too heavy to adequately throw any return punches, and at the end of it, she's standing with deep breaths and a a worn look about her. Yet, she feels oddly energized. This tiredness about her is more of a motivator than anything else. She enjoys the soreness and pain. It's driving her to keep fighting. She's all bubbly inside, and she has to let it out, and there's only one person she can do so on.
She flashes quite the wild grin at Arianda as she tightens her hands into fists once more despite the pain and bleeding. Her onyx eyes are shining bright as if the sun shine is focusing directly on them. She wastes no time launching forward swinging madly at Arianda uncaring for landing a hit, being blocked, or being hit. She just wants to keep doing this. She just want to keep fighting.
