Hands pressed against the ground for support as the Ironhide slid its sunken leg out. Realigning its posture, it began located the Kuja girl in a matter of seconds with the build-in scanner in its eyes. Adjusting to face the target upfront, the cyborg then proceeded to march forth towards the green-haired adolescent who kneeled on one leg with a palm pressed against the ground.
With a swipe of her hand, Fiona revealed her next move that was hidden an inch beneath the sand. A strand of vine that was linked to her palm had heaved off the ground before being swung in a large arc close the ground level, and at the very end of it was her sword with its handle being coiled about. It was essentially a form of bolas as the weight of the blade carried most of the momentum to ravel the vine around the pair of metal legs.
As the giant attempted to take another step forward, it couldn’t do so with the sudden binding of its legs. Its scanners indicated the girl charging towards him once again. With an outstretched arm, it aligned itself with the proper aim in preparation to fire and to exterminate this plant-controlling pest.
Raising her arm out as well, Fiona shot forth a thick vine from her palm, “Vine Impalement!” In a straight, linear line, the strand pierced through the air with its pointed tip before inserting itself into the barrel of the grenade-launching mechanism of the metallic arm. She didn’t plan to impale anything from the outside, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t use her vine as a form to block the exit.
An explosion rumbled in the air once again as smoke exited the hole of the Ironhide’s palm. The inhibiting vine wilted off with its scorched black tipped.
Continuing to close in the gap, Fiona gestured her hand, causing her sword be thrown at her, spinning through the air. Catching it from the throw of her own vine, the girl leaped forth with all of her weight behind another thrust towards the narrow sliver of opening into the cyborg’s internals. More jolting electricity chirped and sparked in its bright zig-zagging lights. All four of the giant limbs began to spasm out of control before the behemoth lost its balance, toppling over before crashing onto its own back. The impact of the fall shook right into her bones as the girl kneeled on top of the monster’s torso, still clinging onto her weapon.
“Did I do it?” She questioned suspiciously. Panting and wheezing, the Amazonian needed the time to catch her breath. However, that also meant her guard was at its lowest point as a large overcasting shadow hovered over her. Before she could react, a powerful vice grip tightened around her waist, lifting her up. The force of the metallic hand increased its pressure, squeezing tighter and tighter, trying to crush the life out of this Kuja girl.
Clenching her teeth, Fiona pressed her hands against the metal, applying a downward force, desperately trying to pull herself out of this tight situation. Her sword remained impaled inside the main body, but that didn’t stop the Ironhide from still functioning. The damage from a mere stab of her sword simply wasn’t enough, and now that she was caught, there appeared to be no chance to escape if even Jessica couldn’t do it.
This isn’t good…
