Shard groans as he see's the blurry bastard arc over the bit of the floor he tore up.
Ugh, why won't this asshole just take a hit?
Vision blurry and motor control a little off, things were going to have change pace if Shard was going to catch a break.
Shard, guessing that Roy didn't make his way over the wall for a friendly cup of tea, rolled to the side to try and avoid whatever attack was coming at him.
As Roy's spit splatted on the floor near him, Shard caught a whiff of something that WASN'T recycled water.
Smells like... Scorpion venom?
While analyzing the glob of disrespect that he had narrowly avoided, Shard was caught off guard by Roy's second attack.
On the plus side, the attack didn't hit him, however on the downside, it HAD sunk into his cloak.
"YOU BASTAAAAARD!" Shard yelled.
Shard raised his hand with the Armbrust on it and swung a punch towards Roy's gut.
Upon connecting, he would empty the remaining six rounds from the cartridge.
If Roy dodged, he would take aim and do the same thing.

Roy's slash seemed to have been as effective against Shard's cloak as it would be against chain-mail. But there was no time to think about it now, Roy could see Shard raising his arm with his wrist-mounted dart-gun. He quickly intercepts Shard at the wrist as he fires off rounds but his side is met with a hook from Shard. Unfortunately for Roy, Shard was a level above him in strength causing him to slowly lose out and that blow to the side wasn't helping. But Roy wasn't so weak that he couldn't cause the shots to miss...most of them. As the 5th shot fires out of Artbrust, Roy is overpowered, and the 6th shot manages to graze his side, slicing through his tunic, and out the back of his cloak, leaving a hole outlined in Roy's blood and a bit of spatter.

The wound isn't deep enough to do any critical damage, but, it did hurt. Nonetheless, he realizes that he can't in terms of strength, here. He breaks his grip on Shard's wrist and takes a step backward pulling Joyeuse from Shard's cloak. Shard quickly tries to escape, but Roy removes his cloak and throws it at Shard (like a net). As his cloak soars through the air, he notices the hole and the red stain and immediately becomes engraged. He ducks low, and like a bull drawn to a red target, thrusts Joyeuse, point-first, forward with a deep fencer's lunge into the bloodied perforation hoping to stick Shard on the other side.

While Roy had thrown his cloak to try and trip Shard, it wasn't necessary. He was still off from the hit in the back of the head, and tripped without any help from Roy. However, this meant that Roy's attack would miss, and Roy may even trip over Shard.

As Roy thrust his sword and drew it back, he felt no feedback. Something was wrong. There's no way he'd be fast enough to dodge it! But as the cloak sunk to the ground he'd realized the large outline of a body beneath it begin to take shape. Roy took a step to the side, jumped up, and attempts to finish off Shard with a downward stab, gripping the hilt with both hands and putting his entire body weight behind Joyeuse's blade-point as he descended.

Gah! Enough with the frickin' floor already! Oh shit...
Shard had to roll again. This time, as the blade hit the floor, Shard grabbed it with one hand, boosted his Aura through his other hand to increase his strength dramatically, and started punching the blade, hoping to at least bend the damn thing.

House Martel's family treasure wouldn't succumb to something as simple as an aura punch. Shard's hit isn't enough to damage Joyeuse, but it does tilt the blade's position. But Roy wasn't expecting what was coming next. In fact, he'd entirely forgotten that Nero was there until...

*PING*

A round hits the cross-guard, chips a piece of it off, and explodes! The explosion knocks the blade loose from the ground and launches Roy about 10 meters back. He lands in a crouching position and Joyeuse spins through the air and sinks deep into the ground right next to him. He turns his gaze to Nero, the source of that annoying shot and glares.

Suddenly, he notices his tunic is quickly catching fire. He immediately tears it off and throws the burning garb away from him.


He shouts at Nero,

"Pussy cat like he see?!"

"Sorry, but you're not the kind of pussy I'm into!"
casting a mocking look while pulling Joyeuse out of the floor.

((OOC: The only reason the explosion didn't burn Roy directly is his aura. That said, it took quite a bit of it to withstand the explosion and burn; meaning that he can only pull a stunt like that a few more times before being spent))

As the round hit the hilt of Roy's weapon, Shard instinctively let go and curled into fetal position.
That was lucky, as the round then proceeded to explode and shower him in flame.
While his cloak and Aura to the brunt of it, Shard's back was gonna sting like a bitch when the adrenaline wore off.
When the flames died down, Shard got up and ducked behind the wall, so that both Bozo and Tabby were both on the other side. Taking a moment to collect himself, Shard swapped the cartridge in Shrapnel to a full one, and swapped the empty Armbrust cartridge for one with Sleepers, Gels, and Silencers.
Peeking past the wall, Shard fired a Silencer at Tabby's and Bozo's feet, waited for them to go off, then fired Gel bolts and Sleepers at them both as well.

His distraction worked! Eliciting a response from Nero gave Roy enough time to gain his footing and he knew that Nero wouldn't pass up the chance to start taking pot shots.

As Nero shouted back, Roy didn't bother to wait. He took the opportunity to sprint dive back behind the cover of the raised wall that Shard raised previously. As he makes his dash rounds whiz passed him, exploding in the the background, blowing craters where they hit.

Once he's behind the wall, he takes the chance to catch his breath, leaning against the arena floor/wall he takes out a small water-skin from his belt and sips down some wine. He knew that if Shard had any common sense, he'd get out of there as soon as possible, because Nero would probably be gunning for him next. So he waited. What other choice did he have?
