Teddy ate a punch to the back of the head, rolling forward and spinning on his knee. There was no way he was going to be faster than him. "And this is a chance to see if you can keep up with your mouth." he said, the taunting starting to get to him. Now was not the time to start letting his emotions get the better of him, but dammit if Calen was pushing him close to it.

Considering his other strategies had no effect, Teddy activated his semblance. In a rush of speed, Teddy made two quick downward hammer strikes followed by a midsection sweep. He needed to keep up the pressure in order to find some weak point in Calen's defense.

"Yeah...I know." Setsuna replied sadly. He wanted to help her badly, but without her opening up a little there was nothing he knew to say that would help her. Pushing it to the back of his mind he focused on the battle. Calen was using his normal tactic of pissing his opponent off--and frustratingly it was once again working--at least until Teddy used his own semblance. At this point, I'm starting to wonder why the school's idea of putting three speedsters in one team is a good idea. Unless there's some sort of running competition between teams.

Grinning as Teddy rolled away Calen kept up his taunts as he saw he was having an effect on his opponent. 'You would have thought you can not run from your problems by now Master Theodore.' Calen remarked dismissively. Despite being outwardly scornful expressions Calen was reasonably impressed by Teddy's reaction, quickly realising what Calen was trying to do Teddy made sure to keep his range. Still it would do no good for Teddy to know that yet in Calen's mind so his antagonistic persona continues. Evading backwards Calen was still clipped by the downward swings more to test the the power behind his new team mates assault than anything else. It was impressive, particularly given the speed behind Teddy's charge, but not enough to wipe the shit-eating grin off Calen's face.

Slipping under the sweep Calen used the opening to close again striking savagely at Teddy's most extended leg with stomp before spinning high for another kick aimed at Teddy's head. 'And if this is truly my chance to keep up with my mouth I hope you won't mind if I keep running it off.' Calen continued laughing a little even as the fight started to get more intense.

Teddy got caught with a stomp to the foot. Thankfully, his natural reaction was to duck his head down, which got him under the kick in time to avoid a shot to the head. There was no chance if he kept letting Calen get distance on him, so he had to improvise. While he was in his low position, he went straight for a tackle on Calen. If he could keep him pinned to the ground, the speed advantage would be evened out.

"Keep talking." he said, the constant taunting causing him to be more aggressive.

Stumbling a little after missing his kick Calen was force to break his rhythm to give him time to find his feat again which left an opening for Teddy. Calen grunted as Teddy made contact and reflected on how many of his fights turned into to wrestling matches. Still unlike then he still has his semblance which allows him to launch both Teddy and himself far into the air. Clocking Teddy with a quick jab to the head Calen then slipped out of his hold and let Teddy fall unhindered to the ground. Instead Calen used his semblance again to catch him, landing in a bow and waited for Teddy to continue.

Starting to breath hard from multiple uses of his semblance Calen still managed to smile and continue taunting. 'Nice try Master Theodore but try to keep up we only need one bag carrier in this team.' Calen remarked as he set up in a defensive stance, his weapon in it's glaive form and his weight held back.

To say the fight was not going well for Teddy would be an understatement. Another jab to the head caused his aura to fall just a bit lower than it was, and it was not looking great at the moment. He did not have a comeback this time, so Calen's taunt had to go unanswered. Teddy had run out of strategies. There was no way to hit him.

Going for broke, Teddy grabbed his hammer and started running toward Calen. Frontal assault gets a glaive to the face. Sliding attack would be repetitive. Jumping attack could not work. Ranged attacks were limited. It was time to try something new. Teddy aimed his weapon down, jumping and firing at the ground for an added boost. When he was at the apex of his jump, he aimed upwards and fired his weapon with a loose grip. It launched out of his hand at a frightening speed toward Calen, spinning rapidly around the head of the hammer.

Teddy's aura dropped to the red as the weapon awkwardly extended his wrist and hand. He fell to the ground forcefully, folding himself over as he landed on his head and shoulders.

Watching keenly as the fight progressed, Setsuna was quick to notice the dropping aura levels of both fighters--punctuated by the sound of Teddy's aura entering the red--and even faster to react once he saw the hammer flashing toward Calen. Surging out of his relaxed position with a burst of his semblance, he knocked the hammer out of the air with his shield, moments before it would have impacted with its intended target. "Fight's over." he said firmly, kneeling down to give Teddy a hand. 'Well fought."

Up in the shadows cloaking the banisters, the figure was holding a long, thin object. Resting it on the back of a chair, it was pointed directly at Teddy. With this movement, the figure would be visible, but only barely.

Not able to fully hide how impressed he was as Teddy kept adapting to his defensive strategies despite clearly getting more and more angry. That we can use. Calen thought to himself as Teddy launched an all out attack. Hoping to catch his opponent in the air Calen misjudged Teddy's speed and changing direction in midair and was caught completely off guard as the hammer came rocketing towards him. It could very well have shattered his aura if Setsuna didn't step in and call off the fight. Adrenalin quickly leaving his body Calen stumbled backwards as old wounds and new made themselves acquainted although he was able to cancel out his movement before he fell. What started as a small chuckle continued into a full bellied genuine laugh which only exasperated the pain in Calen's chest. 'That took courage Master Theodore, we have use for that. Although make sure you rest up, I always get self-conscious when Anna get's my seconds.' Calen remarked not capable of saying something positive without an at least equal insult.

Seathing his blade Calen picked up Teddy's hammer and handed the weapon hilt first to his new team mate. Calen still had his shit-eating grin but there was a building respect underneath it now. The gaunt boy limped back off the duelling area to his water bottle rubbing his chest where Teddy's hammer slammed home. Taking the moment to himself Calen's danger sense started to click at something above them. It was most likely another student preparing a prank, This day just keeps getting better and better. Calen thought to himself as he thought if he should say anything..... Maybe Teddy had earnt that. 'Or perhaps it isn't chains you have to look forward to next.' Calen remarked looking very purposely not at the shadowy figure.

Anna continued to ignore the battle, not even reacting as Setsuna most probably used his semblance to intervene, judging by the amount of air displaced and how far his voice suddenly was. She did, however, snort a laugh at Calen's first comment. Second one, not so much, but ehh, what'll you do.

Teddy took the hand with his right hand, cradling his left. He was not in the best of shape, but he could still walk. "What are you talking about?" he said to Calen, holding his left wrist. Teddy kept his head low, hunched over as he began to recover. He was obviously dissapointed in his loss, but running it back through his mind did not give him any alternatives.

'This kind of fighting is my forte, I never expected you to win. I only wanted to see what you would do. And in that you did well well, never trying the same failed strategy twice. Even as I was clearly getting under your skin you kept your cool. Banter could use some work but you are in the same boat as everyone else unfortunately.' Calen responded already starting to stretch out his aching muscles.

A few moments later Calen realised he may have made a mistake and continued pointing up to the banisters. 'Oh has no one else seen them yet.' Calen was genuinely surprised, he was hardly the most perceptive of the group. Maybe he would have to get that comic off Anna after she was finished.

Setsuna continued to support Teddy's weight as much as possible, quietly listening to what Calen had to say--he was complementing? Him?--and also agreeing with most of what Calen said.

Hearing Calen's last comment left him quite confused. "See who?" Setsuna asked no-one in particular, confusion evident on his face as he looked at where Calen was pointing. All he saw was shadows, darkness and something that looked like a rifle. Wait what?


Having their position seemingly revealed by Calen, the person raised the object, revealing it to indeed be a rifle and now visible to all. Firing a glowing bullet at Teddy's body, too fast for even Setsuna's Semblance to react to, scored a direct hit. However, instead of seeing his Aura shatter, all 4 scrolls indicated that Teddy's Aura had increased instead.

As Calen started speaking again, Anna gradually lost her concentration, ending in a rather dumbfounded expression aimed right at the source of her teammate's voice. Which was mostly obscured by her hair, thoroughly ruining the effect. Calen making compliments wasn't just rare; it meant he actually accepted Teddy.

All she could do was utter "...I am utterly flabbergasted." She remained in that very state until the team's de facto Sarcasm Lord, having turned over a new leaf in the most outrageous plot twist today, mentioned that there was, indeed, somebody else present. Anna calmed herself and held her breath to try and hear something, instead of just using her semblance.

Lo and behold, her eardrums were brutally and mercilessly assaulted by the blast of a gun of some conviction. Out of both sheer reflex and complete panic, she jumped out of her seat, throttled her semblance's pedal to the bloody metal and flung an Ice Dust-loaded throwing knife directly at the source of the sound.

...While still in mid-air.

Okay maybe she was really panicked and nearly jumped out of her skin. Give her a break, will ya?

Teddy did not get the chance to see whomever it was that took the shot at him. When the shot rang out, he attempted to get to the ground to avoid it. It caught him right in the chest. Naturally, Teddy began to panic. Low aura and high calibre weapons tend to end badly.

Teddy fell to the ground, taken mostly by his own momentum trying to dodge. Laying on his back, he slowly raised his head to see if the bullet got him. It didn't...and his hand had started healing.

"W-What's going on?" Teddy said, the panic evident in his voice.

'Well that was quite an impressive jump from being seated Miss Fall.' Calen remarked as he dashed forward, using several bursts of his semblance to intercept the dagger before it found it's target. 'Perhaps we should petition to get that added to the athletics carnival, after we are done attacking fellow students of course.' Calen continued with an even more haughty and arrogant tone that usual. In truth he wasn't that far behind launching attacks himself but for once his slower reflexes gave him more information to react to.

Landing hard Calen couldn't hide the slight grunt he made as he crashed back into the ground sending shock waves up his knees and even causing his teeth to chatter. 'Well come on then, introduce yourself stranger. You owe us that much, these knives hurt.' Calen called out towards the stranger tossing Anna's dagger up and down as he walked back over to his blind team mate. The fall had caused a fair amount of pain to Calen's already injured knees causing his limp to grow more pronounced, not that it did anything ruin his nicely fed ego.
