Many things went through Dino's head as he watched Skittles lift the sword and swing it down towards him. The last thing was an image of his wife, and strangely enough some type of stew he had once had and found it to be delicious.
He snapped out of it once he noticed Koi had jumped towards the man and rolled out of the way of the slice. He jumped to his feet and pulled out his own sword and extended it, getting in a defensive stance to parry any follow-up attack.
OOC: update should be later tonight, hopefully I'll get a chance to do it. If not, it'll be up by tomorrow afternoon. I unfortunately have another busy week ahead of me, but hopefully it shouldn't affect the update schedule.

Koi is able to once again latch on to Skittles. It's not enough to stop the sword stroke, but it does slow it down.

Due to Koi's intervention, Dino is able to dodge to safety.

"Now," Skittles turns to Dino; "let's finish this."
He once again raised his sword, and then slashed vertically from the left.
Current player/suit status:
Koi: Fading quickly. One more post to convey any last thoughts or words before he loses consciousness for the last time. Weapons handy: N/A. Current suit power: 0% (Note: Due to Koi's muscle weakness because of his wound and blood loss, the suit needed not only to power him up but keep him going, which caused a much larger suit drain.)
Tomoe: Fading quickly. One more post to convey any last thoughts or words before she loses consciousness for the last time. Weapons handy: N/A. Current suit power: 0%
Naomi: Old woman is helping her. Current suit strength: 0%
Dino: Able to dodge in time. Sword slash approaching from the right from Skittles. Weapons handy: One katana, one Y-gun. Current suit strength: 36%
GM notes: This is the second to last update of this mission. Tomoe and Koi will slip into unconsciousness and that means I'll be able to finish the fight between Dino and Skittles in one post. I'm sorry if it seemed Dino was overpowered or overly lucky, I was using him to make sure that all characters got out of the mission alive and to end this mission as quick as possible.
3-2 minutes left.

As things started to fade Koi could only think of one thing. Why the fuck didn't he stab when I latched on?

Action: Dino flips his blade so he's holding it in an ice-pick position in his left hand and attempts to block the oncoming blade. He then attempts kick Skittles in the ribs with all of his might.
Result: Dino is able to utilize the suit's power to block and kick, but the kick is blocked by Skittles. Before Dino's foot can even be retracted, Skittles uses it as leverage to launch himself towards Dino and head-butt him in the face. This breaks Dino's nose and causes 3% damage to the suit, as well as disorientates him.
Skittles pauses for a minute to let the fact that he could not be beaten or stopped sink into Dino. He would savor the look of fear on his face before ending it.
Action: Dino shakes off the pain and disorientation from the attack and snaps his nose back into place, wincing. Fear was starting to well up inside him. There was no way he could do this. But there was another feeling rising to the surface as well. Excitement...this was actually fun. Fighting for his life, proving himself and vanquishing a tougher foe. He didn't think he could win, but he'd have fun trying.
Dino flips the sword into the air and catches it with his right hand and gets into a fencing position. He grins wildly at Skittles and quickly stabs towards his right breast, towards his heart.
Result: Skittles, slightly disturbed by the feral smile that Dino was now displaying, uses his own blade to direct the attack away from his body. Sparks emit as steel grinds against steel. He takes his left hand off of the hilt and attempts to slam his fist into Dino's stomach.
Action: Dino attempts to catch the punch with his own left hand, grips it, and then pulls it forward, trying to slam his knee into the man's gut, using Skittle's own inertia to power the move.
Result: The knee crashes into Skittles' gut. His eyes bulge, knees buckle, and he coughs up some blood. Unfortunately for Dino, he recovers quickly, crouches, and then performs a sweeping kick.
Action: Dino attempts to jump back out of the range of the kick before it can connect.
Result: The dodge is successful. Skittles rises slowly, panting slightly, and glares at Dino. From what he could see, getting in close would give Dino and his slightly superior strength the advantage. He would have to wear him down at a distance before using his superior agility and flexibility.
Skittles extends his sword to about 15 feet in length, and once again swings the blade horizontally using both arms.
Current Suit Powers:
Action: As Skittles extends his sword Dino rushes forward, intent on keeping the fight close. As the sword stroke approaches him, Dino uses both hands, one on the hilt, one on the metal, to block the attack and slide towards Skittles in order to get in another kick to the ribs.
Result: The sword stroke proves much stronger than Dino thought. The follow through sends Dino flying 10 feet into a heap on the ground. As he struggles to get up, Skittles punts Dino straight into the air, and then finishes the combo with a sword stroke to Dino's midsection, which slams him down into the ground, the impact causing cracks to form in the pavement below. The attack has severely depleted the suit's power and knocked the air out of him. His sword clatters to the ground next to him.
Action: Dino gasped for breath and arched his back, an electric current of pain running down his spine. He picks himself up and attempts to shake it all off. 'C'mon, just a little more, you can make it home.' He picks up the sword and starts towards Skittles.
Result: Skittles suddenly hops towards Dino, skidding to a halt inches away from him, and sends an elbow smashing into Dino's chin before the man can react. He once again flies straight up into the air, blue liquid gushing from the nodes on his suit and teeth flying from him mouth. Once he stops going upward, Skittles skewers him in mid air. Dino's body slides slowly down the blade, blood trickling from his mouth. Skittles drops the blade, and the body sinks to its knees and lies still. Everything goes black for Tomoe, Koi, and Dino, the last remaining fighters of the team.
On Dino's controller, the time suddenly reaches zero.
Aftermath thread will be posted tomorrow.
