The moment the girl rushed toward him, Juno brought a fist to his open palm, summoning a sword of his own, attempting to parry the incoming strikes. The first one was relatively easy to block, though the low strike caught him by surprise, striking his leg and forcing him on the defensive, stepping back as he parried the remaining two attacks. He didn't expect her to fall back so soon, however, as he had anticipated more of an attack. Nevertheless, he didn't simply let this moment pass him by, as he flexed his free hand, inching toward the girl as a large gauntlet was constructed around the hand not currently bearing a sword.

Once he deemed himself close enough, he lunged at the girl, swinging high with the sword and following with a punch to her gut, hoping that the first strike would divert her attention enough to let the gut punch slip by.

Fancy weapon. Hardlight by the looks of it. Adaptable. Hard to predict. And heading towards her face. Cerise quickly met Juno's sword with her own, taking the punch to the gut as well. Oomph. Ignoring that, she proceeded to grab ahold of Juno's gauntlet arm, though not the gauntlet itself of course, lest it transformed into a sword and skewered her hand. No, she grabbed his upper forearm, before pulling herself forwards, trying to jerk Juno slightly behind, slamming the hilt of her falchion in his face, then performing a kick to put a little distance between them, backing up herself a bit as well. With this distance, Cerise extended her falchion into its polearm form, readying herself for Juno's counters. Of course maybe it would've been a good idea to use the proximity to try pinning Juno down, but it was a little crude, not guaranteed to work, and also, the match wasn't for winning, to see who was better. It was to demonstrate her skills. And she would.

Juno didn't expect her to react so quickly to his weaponry, and while he was able to block the incoming falchion with the guard of his own blade, the kick to his stomach was much less easily circumvented due to her grip on his forearm, allowing her to strike him square in the chest.

Not bad.

Of course, he wasn't entirely impressed, either. He knew he was holding back, and could only hope that she was as well. Of course, ramping things up a bit couldn't hurt. The girl seemed to have a similar idea, too, what with the sudden mode change in her weapon. Sword to Falchion. Interesting. Polearm is good for reach, but not so much up close. the young man thought to himself as he shifted his grip on his blade, now holding it in a backhand form. She had potential for a solid defense with that glaive, but he had the element of surprise. He just had three slots to capitalize on it.

A flick of the wrist was all it took to construct a disk beneath his gauntlet covered hand, and a swing of his arm was what sent it flying toward the girl. However, midway through its path toward her torso, the disk split into two, arcing in opposing directions, yet converging onto their target.

Keeping one eye on the goings-on of the battle, Samuel mumbled to himself quietly as he tapped in on the keyboard of his scroll. He'd have to go over the code later, not really putting his mind to it properly, but it was a good distraction while he observed the fight starting up. Cerise had gone in fast and hard, showing that at the very least she had an idea of how to use the... halberd? Glaive was probably a better term from taking a glance at the shaping of the weapon. The blows seemed to be quite heavy but not too slow; she either had to be a prodigy of some scale, or that fighting style was going to be tiring. The latter was more probable, giving the age of the students on the team, though he hadn't asked for hers - and Juno had drilled just about enough social etiquette into his head that he wouldn't randomly ask her it, either.

At least, while said team leader was around.

Pausing in his coding, he flicked open his internet browser, becoming slightly more interested in the fight. Searching up the name of their new team member, Samuel tried finding some more information about the girl while Juno responded in fashion. He gave a slight sigh as Cerise switched her weapon to a shorter-range mode; while the Falchion would be more agile, from personal experience he wished good luck onto whoever tried fighting Juno in that close of a range. Annoyed as he was with VCVS' leader, that didn't mean the teen was stupid enough to doubt his skill in combat. He was, however, irritated enough to doubt his relative sanity for dragging them all here so freaking early. Relative, in that Beacon probably held far more not-quite-there people being a hotspot of activity for a bunch of combat-trained teenagers.

As the two seemed to get more into the rhythm of the fight, he smirked slightly. Seemed like things were finally getting interesting. Samuel opened up the few webpages that looked promising, and carried on watching the fight. If Cerise really did use a self-exhausting style, he might actually be able to give or get some hints, considering how much his own drained him when he really went for it. Hm. Speaking of, maybe he should try to work out a bit of the anger and stress, and sparring's a good outlet, right?

Fancy, fancy toys. Where the hell did he get them anyway? Students at combat academies tended to end up with fancier toys than you'd think the average person would be able to obtain. Cerise still responded accordingly though, using the reach of the current form to take care of the left disk and give her enough to to take care of the left via kick. Or at least attempt to. The surprise coupled with the speed ended in the right disk nicking her in the back of the shin. Damn toys.

At least she knew that Juno had more than one trick up his sleeve, and how that particular one worked. Juno probably had more of those disks, it'd be a little weird if he just had one. Though how many more and if there were any differences wasn't immediately noticeable.

In response, Cerise charged forwards, taking a wide swing at Juno with her glaive. She kept in mind that if she was met with Juno's blade or gauntlet, to then simply use it as a brace to pull the blade half back and slam the other end towards Juno's midsection. Following, she spun counterclockwise before striking again, aiming lower, then from that gripping the glaive higher up the pole, spinning back and performing a stabbing motion.

(Grab counter granted by Mystic. I apologize for quality)

Juno had to say, despite her lack of punctuality and confidence, the girl was good. He was learning quite a bit by fighting her, and he felt that it was about time he educated her as well. Lesson number one of fighting VCVS Leader Juno Osiris Vert: Do not rush down Juno Osiris Vert.

The blade of the girl's glaive was quickly intercepted with Juno's gauntlet covered hand, though the girl was quick enough to sneak a hit with the staff of the glaive into his midsection. However, such a move left enough of a gap for his retaliation. Seeing as he had one construct available left, Juno let all of his current weapons disperse into nothingness before creating a grappling dart underneath his wrist. In almost no time at all, the dart was sent flying toward the girl's ankle, winding itself around her limb before Juno jerked the line back, bringing Cerice with it. With his opponent imbalanced and being jerked toward him, Juno tightened his stance and reared his fist, letting the line disperse before driving a downward punch into her stomach.

Fancy, fancy toys indeed. As the punch connected, Cerise swung her glaive in a wide arc, trying to use the reach of her weapon to sneak a hit in the meanwhile. Once she hit the ground, Cerise knew that at all costs, she had to keep Juno off of her, and such she took advantage of the proximity to hook Juno's ankle, pulling to try unstabling him and buying time while she rose from the floor. God, not her best moments. But she shook it off anyway, holding her polearm in a defensive pose, deviating from her usual routine.

The girl's wide swing did manage to graze the young man as intended, but it had also gotten his attention, causing him to focus his attention on the girl's glaive. The low sweep was easily mitigated with a simple jump, but his reaction happened to give her enough time to recover. Eh, not like he couldn't finish the fight anyway, but it was a missed opportunity. Nevertheless, Juno watched as she took a defensive stance, only to slip out of his guard entirely and straighten up.

"Alright, I can admit that you are a good fighter." He started, keeping an eye on her blade as he backed up to the edge of the mat. "And I have no doubts that, if we were in a tournament styled match, you would give me a significant run for my money. Now, I'm not calling it quits. I just want to see what you can really do."

"I want you to hit me. As hard as you can."

Cerise stood still for a good few moments after Juno's offer. She wasn't so stupid to think that he was just going to let her hit him free of charge. No way in hell. Unless he had a trick up his sleeve. Of course, it must be it. Some weapon or something along the lines of that. It always happened in the movies. Who knew what the dude had in store.  But fine. She would play his game. Though, maybe not exacrly as he wanted to.

"Your wish," she said, raising her glaive up to prepare for a strike, "is my command." Just as she seemed to start charging forwards, right foot raised slightly, Cerise disappeared, reappearing right in front of Juno. The raised foot was actually in preparation for a back kick, her foot followed by her glaive. Hopefully she surprised her new team leader enough to stop whatever surprise attack he had. She tried to use her semblance again to back off, but it apparently didn't comply with her. That would need to be worked on.

Juno grinned as the girl charged forward, tensing up as she reared to kick him square in the chest. He was ready for any assault she could put out, especially given his newly found semblance. Then she disappeared.

Well. Not quite what he had expected, but he knew how to deal with it. Caja had teleportation as her semblance, and the two had sparred together often. When the girl disappeared from view, Juno instinctively put up his semblance, his purple aura flaring out and bathing the immediate area in a purple light. When she struck him with his foot, he didn't move. He didn't flinch, he wasn't knocked back, and most of all, he wasn't fazed in the slightest. Her incoming glaive was quickly grabbed, his semblance keeping him and his grip sturdy as he reared his fist back and threw a merciless left hook down into her cheek.

Fancy fancy semblance too. He didn't move an inch when she struck, didn't give her any leeway as she tried to retrieve her glaive. Very interesting.

But she was no newbie to combat, and her semblance was interesting too.

As soon as she saw his fist coming at her, Cerise tried her semblance again, moving back to her previous spot at the other edge of the mat. Unfortunately she had to leave her weapon in Juno's hands, but she didn't have much use for it now anyway. The fight had served its purpose, and if it dragged on too long, the weariness that often accompanied her style would soon kick in. "I concede. You are obviously the superior fighter and I cannot bear to continue our sparring match. Even your gaze sends shivers down my spine." All this as she kept a perfectly straight face. "If you would be so kind to return my weapon to me," Cerise said as she held out her hand.

An agitated sigh escaped the young man's lips as the girl before him conceded. That was an out he realized he shouldn't have given her, and technically she had done nothing wrong. However, he was annoyed nonetheless. Planting the blade of the girl's glaive into the ground, Juno crossed his arms. "You are free to retrieve it yourself. I expect more from you next time." he stated flatly as he glared at the girl.

They weren't going to get along very well, and that was something he would have to remedy. A unit that fights amongst itself is a liability, and something he couldn't allow to occur on his team. He had work to do as a leader, yes, but Ver, Sam, and Caja had cooperated with him. Why not Cerise? Shaking his head, Juno stepped off of the mat. "Sam, Ver. You're up. Unless, of course, Cerise would prefer to have a match with either of you."

Cerise crossed over to the other side of the mat, taking back her glaive. "No thanks about the match. My spar with you has simply rendered me terrified. I don't think I will be able to take part in activity of the combat type for months and years to come, that it how much you have affected me, dear leader." Her face emotionless as ever, Cerise made her way to where Samuel and Verdant were sitting, preparing to watch the other two members spar. "Please don't mind me dear teammates," she said referring to the two who had yet to spar. "Don't let my significant scarring from our team leaders substantial might hinder you."

Taking a moment to save the file, Samuel flicked the scroll closed, letting out a quiet yawn. "Yea, yea, I got ya Juno. Fine." Sluggishly pushing himself to his feet, he started heading towards the fighting area, but was interrupted by Cerise's friendly and thoughtful comment towards him and his sparring partner. Pausing for a second, the teen took a few moments to try and think of something witty or some way to defuse the situation a little bit, before simply shrugging. He didn't have the energy to bother right now.

"Sure thing, Cer. Sounds like a plan." Not waiting for a further response, he moved over to the arena, chains sliding along behind him. Reaching to his headphones to start playing a song with a little more rhythm to it for the fight ahead, he began tapping his foot to the beat. "Let's get this show on the road, eh Verdant?" He stated, giving a smile as he drew out Staccato and Encore. Yes, the situation was kinda crappy all around, but at least he could vent a little bit of his frustrations in a fight. Maybe not too many, though - Verdant out of any of his teammates didn't deserve it.

 As Verdant got up and walked over to the training area in the middle of the room. He pulled out his bow and took a look at it as he walked to the arena, Verdant didn't do well in close quarter combat and this practice session was entirely close quarters. He had hoped that he wouldn't have to fight in this training session but now he had to, and Verdant was pretty sure he was going to be knocked on his butt.

Verdant got into the starting position across from Samual extending his bow to its full length and got into a combat stance. Preparing for whatever attack Samual threw his way.

"Juno, can you start the fight on our go?" asked Verdant.  "Let's get this over with," Verdant said the second part under his breath.
