Characters: Jamie Madrox, Candice Wilmer
Summary: Mom always said, don't hit girls. Unless they hit first.
Warnings: none
Status: Complete
Open to the training rooms

Stretching idly, arm folded behind his head, Jamie shook himself slightly, stepping onto the mat.

Given the keyed-up nature of their work, slow days were all the more unbearable. And rather than being stuck in an office writing up reports and pouring over mission statements, begging off to put in some extra training hours was infinitely more attractive.

"So we setting parameters or free for all?"

"Free for all," she grinned, stretching. It felt good to be wearing something other than her ever present holster.

"Promise not too hurt you too badly," she added, cocky as she usually was.
11th-Oct-2007 07:59 pm (UTC)
Jamie snorted, moving into a comfortably familiar stance, giving her a half smile.

"I promise to let you get a hit in."

"So kind."

Hair reduced to a more manageable length - after all, he hadn't said she had to play 'normal' - she shot him a smile. Just because she was going to beat him up didn't mean she couldn't be graceful about it.

And she'd never been one to beat around the bush when she wanted something.

He watched her hair shift, he frowned slightly. "No cheating with making yourself appear somewhere else. Don't think I'll have guilt about letting eight of me take you down."

An arched eyebrow, making a cocky 'bring it on' gesture.

"Bullshit," she challenged, knowing him too well. She might not have played by the rules, but he did.

To wait for an answer would've been predictable. And boring. They hadn't come down here to chat, she decided, feigning a kick to his side only to spin and finish it off with a punch instead.
11th-Oct-2007 08:12 pm (UTC)
He caught her fist, pushing it to the side and aiming a sweep to her legs, trying to hold back a little. He didn't want to hurt her.
11th-Oct-2007 08:15 pm (UTC)
She hadn't expected him to parry her hit, but she knew him well enough to anticipate his next move. Taking advantage of his momentary lack of balance, she spun again, arm twisting in his grasp and elbow aiming for the center of his back to send him to the mat.
11th-Oct-2007 08:19 pm (UTC)
The move took him by surprise, her elbow catching him full in the back, knocking him to his knees on the mat. He recovered, going in a roll and coming up in a crouch.

Shifting back into stance, he rocked lightly on the balls of his feet, frowning before trying for her legs once again.
11th-Oct-2007 08:24 pm (UTC)
She couldn't sidestep in time, but if she was going down, she'd take him with her.

Aware that their sparring was becoming entirely too aggressive and not much of a workout, Candice hooked her arm around his neck, smirking as she drew herself up and then collapsed to the ground, dragging him down too.
11th-Oct-2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
Jamie grunted in surprise and annoyance as she managed to take him down to the mat, cursing once again that he was so damn slight. Sure, he had about 5 inches on her, but only about thirty pounds, so if she really put her strength behind it...

Hitting the mat, he moved to pin her arms, neatly avoided an attempted kick to the head.
12th-Oct-2007 07:09 am (UTC)
Laughing, she let him pin her down, smirking when he succeeded. Stalemate.

"If you wanted to get on top of me, you didn't have to come up with an excuse, you know," she teased, shifting a little under him.
12th-Oct-2007 07:13 am (UTC)
Jamie laughed, rolling his eyes. "You caught me," he said wryly, arching an eyebrow at her.

"I want you, I need you. Oh, baby, oh baby."
12th-Oct-2007 07:18 am (UTC)
She laughed even louder, shoving her fist against his shoulder lightly.

"Shut up!"
12th-Oct-2007 07:21 am (UTC)
He shifted off her and onto his back on the mat, looking over at her. "All's the better.Wouldn't have wanted you to get hurt. Which reminds me, that elbow in the back thing, that really stung."
12th-Oct-2007 07:23 am (UTC)
"Bite me," she giggled, propping herself up on her elbows. "You said free for all. Besides, you're not that fragile."
12th-Oct-2007 07:25 am (UTC)
"I'll have you know I'm quite breakable. I'm not that much heavier than you." He crossed his arms behind his head. "Too bad I can't bulk up. Might make the more of me thing a bit more intimidating."
12th-Oct-2007 07:39 am (UTC)
"You? Intimidating? Never gonnna happen," she countered, tickling his side.

Standing, she offered him her hand. "Come on, one more."
12th-Oct-2007 06:44 pm (UTC)
He let her tug him to his feet, still grumbling.

"Yeah, yeah, someones a sore loser," he muttered, shifting back into stance.
12th-Oct-2007 06:49 pm (UTC)
"That wasn't me losing, James," Candice teased, watching him for a few seconds before charging again. Waiting on the defensive would have been smarter but she had no patience.

Besides, this was the closest she'd been to a man in a while.
12th-Oct-2007 06:51 pm (UTC)
Her first hit caught him full in the chest, knocking the air out of him slightly, but he was able to block the second, grabbing hold of her wrists.

"Oh, yeah? What is?"
12th-Oct-2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
"You'll have to beat me to find out," she smirked, lifting her knee between their bodies to hit him in the stomach. She was kind, she didn't go for the groin.
12th-Oct-2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
Grunting, he let go off her wrists with a push backwards, eying her.

"Guess I will," he replied, hand on his stomach, scanning her lithe frame. A kick to the legs, she'd be expected, he'd done it twice now, but it was and obvious weak spot.

Not to mention he really couldn't bring himself to hit her.
12th-Oct-2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
"Let's up the stakes," she suggested, cracking her neck. "I win, you do my reports for the next five missions... or better yet, you come with me to that strip club. Tonight."

Without waiting for him to accept her terms, she aimed another kick and spin to his side.
12th-Oct-2007 07:05 pm (UTC)
His surprise allowed the hit to connect, at least that's what he told himself, catching her arms as she went to twist away, locking them behind her in his grip.

"I'm not...what if I win?"
12th-Oct-2007 07:08 pm (UTC)
"Your call, what do you want?" she smiled, voice a little tight when he twisted her arms. "A back-rub?"
