DONE. DONE DONE DONE I'M NEVER TOUCHING A TABLET AGAIN :iconcryforeverplz:

Wuah. It's been a wild ride. Tons of fun but SO MUCH WORK!! A million thank yous to :iconanimeneko123: for being so incredibly patient with me and helping me figure out Cal's character (though I think it's probably still OOC, please forgive me!) Also thank you :iconbluebluefox: and :iconra-punzelle: for letting me borrow your babs for extra drama! 

For more on Cal and where he's coming from in this story, check this out:   OW: This was it (Tournament Intro?)This was it, his fight would start tomorrow.
How long had he been attending this academy now? The first two terms had come and gone in a flash, hardly felt like anything really, but what did two terms amount to again? A year, maybe two? Time never was something he kept track of very well, not that he ever tried too hard. Often avoided doing so when he could as a matter of fact, for he found it to be a fruitless effort. Even one lacking sense could see that counting off the days that one lived was a waste of time and he meant that literally. If time was really so precious, why waste it tracking the day when you could be out there seizing it? Cal couldn't make sense of it, seemed oddly hypocritical and just counterproductive, but than again he knew he was in no position to judge the habits and decisions of others when his own always had people shaking their heads. Something he always like to remind himself.
Ah yes, the infamous Cal A. Vera, one of many questionable eccentrics whom attend
 (I'll also link his tournament submission once it's up~)

Wish me luck!!

(Yasmine's POV)

I couldn't believe me eyes. There definitely was something going on with the curse. It stumbled around in circles, making the most horribly awkward expression and poses, but speaking in almost complete sentences. It chanted "focus" like a mantra, briefly interrupted by screaming, whimpering, and more demand to "shut up." The hope in my chest spread. So far the curse had held on, but if this man- this creature- could fight it off like this...maybe someday I could too...

"Y-You can do it! Mr. Scary Demon Lawyer!" I called desperately. And then was struck by the absurdity of the situation. Here I was in my opponent's body, cheering for my opponent, who was currently trapped in my body, with the curse in control. I could hardly wrap my head around it and I was there. The people in the stands had to be totally confused by now...

But the curse had been in there a long time. Usually it didn't last more than a minute or two. But the cut I'd inadvertently afflicted on myself had been deep. Really deep. I couldn't remember a time the curse had been in control longer. Even if the demon lawyer fought, it would only get harder. This time...I might never get my body back...

The curse stopped walking in circles and began twirling and giggling. With a sinking sensation I realized it wasn't speaking in words at all, but rather some sort of garbled gibberish. It had taken full control. 

With a sick smile, it 'sang' at me again. "So loud and resistant NONONONONO," it howled, "Mr. Boney must hurry and GOGOGOGO!"

I took a step back. What in the...

Pain exploded over my skull as the drop kick my opponent had been able to avoid before- connected. I didn't have time to reel from the pain when another blow took me in the jaw. I think I spun away- or maybe just my brain did. Stars erupted in my vision. I'd have liked to crumple and cry right then, but a hard knee into what on a human would be the solar-plexus had me gasping for air. The world took a step sideways as something slammed into my forehead. 

Everything spun and tilted and I had to focus not to throw up. Vaguely I saw a red-headed shape come towards, giggling. Then it stopped. Stood straight. The maniacal smile disappeared, replaced by a solemn frown. 

"Finally." the demon lawyer said.

Pain like I'd hoped to never experience again ripped through my body. What the curse had done felt like a candle to the forest fire that was my agony. I hardly noticed the brief moment of spaciousness this time, so wrapped up in my own thoughts and terrors. 

When I slammed back into my own body all I could do was shake. I'd survived. Somehow. Whatever had just happened, I'd made it. And there was no curse here waiting for me. He'd managed to pull it off. The demon lawyer had fought of the curse. Gratitude washed over me in a relieved wave. I was alive, I was sane, and I wasn't hurting any more. It was too good to be true. 

I looked up and startled. The demon lawyer had collapsed to the ground! I guessed the curse had really done a number to him. Panicked, I began to hurry over, but he gained his knees without any assistance. 

He looked like hell warmed over. Purple blood dripped sluggishly from his eyes, nose and mouth. The shiner over his left eye would last into next week. But he was alive. My opponent turned one black eye on me, lowered gently, and closed. I would have sworn he relaxed- as if he were relived too. It didn't make any sense! 

I rushed to his side, and uselessly waived my hands around in an attempt to help him. But the man had already passed out. 

"It's over," I whispered to myself, still shaking, "The first round is really, finally, over..."
...
"for now..."

I have to admit there's only a few people's written stuff on DA that I will read, but yours are always cool!
