Law stood his ground, putting slightly less weight on the leg that was less stable, and stared down Ulv. It was true that he was on the losing end of this encounter, but that didn't affect the fiery passion that always burned within him. He was never one to accept defeat, not even when the combat was a simple training session. He gave every battle his absolute all, and that frequently fucked him over, but it also helped him to grow, and rapidly at that. Because of that fact, it wasn't something he was willing to disregard, not even when he was getting knocked around. Especially
not when he was getting knocked around.
As Ulv spoke he kept his cool, however he did once more raise on eyebrow at what he said.
"I appreciate the advice, but we're in the middle of a fight, are we not? Let's keep things moving."
Shortly after he'd said this he noticed that she was indeed keeping things moving, and had probably been intending to do so whether or not he'd spoken. Still, snarky remarks had a mind of their own, and they would come and go as they pleased. Within the next second she was moving towards him at what could only be considered super-sonic speeds. Yes, he was certain he'd hear the boom shortly after she reached him. With only the smallest fraction of a second to determine what her exact speed and trajectory were, his brain set off at super speed. He could determine by the way her body had originally been positioned just what she was aiming for, now the real test of wits came into play. Luckily, mentally, he was no slouch. As Ulv rocketed towards him he determined her exact velocity, and measured that against the speed with which he could move his arms to determine exactly when he should make his move.
As Ulv's shoulder slammed into his own chest Law's arms tightly gripped themselves around her entire torso, ensuring that she would be taking this ride with him, wherever that took them. He'd already determined the amount of force this attack would hold, but that didn't mean that he was any less affected by it when it did hit him. He could feel every bit of air he'd held in his lungs instantly escape. Both of his shoulders were severely dislocated, his sternum was fractured, all of his ribs were severely damaged, the upper ones taking the brunt of the force and breaking, but there were fractures all the way down his rib cage, as well as a few more internal injuries he couldn't accurately asses at the moment. At the same time he could feel her body pressed firmly against his own, warm and comforting as it was. A worthwhile compensation, in the end. As his back slammed against the ground, Law looked up into the face of this extraordinarily muscular woman. Her muscularity was something he was all the more aware of at this moment, but at the same time he could feel the softness that a woman would normally have. It was jarring, but pleasant nonetheless. He smiled, and gave her a wink, hoping to show that even though he was physically outclassed, he wasn't at a complete loss in terms of what to do. A bit of blood trickled from his lips as he did so.
