Ael woke up early on what seemed like a bleary Thursday morning. He wasn’t quite sure how, absent a sun and clouds, a day could seem bleary, but this one definitely did. He rose nonetheless, and put on some exercise gear. He had gotten up early to get in some training before going in to the morning briefing. When he came to the holodeck, he set it up for a hand to hand training program, and walked in.

-Ael Khev

A few moments after the program began, Xandra came in. Dropping her towel and bottle near the entrance, she moved to the corner and began stretching. She was already a bit frazzle looking as if she’d already worked out before arriving.

Glancing at Ael, she smiled. “Didn’t expect you to be first one in, today. Decided not to sleep in?” The teasing was normal between them. They seemed to trade off between which of them showed up first.

She fell silent and focused on stretching again.

Ael laughed “Can’t give you a headstart every day.” He finished his stretches and stepped onto the practice mat. “Don’t worry, I’ll take it easy on you.” He said with a sly smile. He knew he and Xandra were a pretty even match, but pilots have a special discourse.

-Ael Khev

Xandra laughed. “Then I guess we’ll both be taking it easy, today.” She stepped into the mat and didn’t even hesitate. Her second step brought her within arm’s reach of the man. She grabbed for his right wrist with her own right hand. The hope was to just tug him off balance to tease him.

Caught by the wrist and being tugged over, Ael decided to use his larger size to just bowl Xandra over. He let gravity do its thing.

-Ael Khev

She hadn’t been expecting him to roll with it and a small cry of surprise rolled out of her throat as she toppled off center and rolled as she hit the mats.

She managed to twist as she landed, trying to roll away from him. But her legs were half tangled from the unexpected fall and we’re still within his reach by the time he recovered.

Ael reached for Xandra’s right ankle and… hadn’t planned that far ahead. He decided to continue his leverage ploy and try to pin her to the mat. He was more out of practice as a fighter than he thought, at least as far as thinking through what he was doing.

-Ael Khev

Another gasp, more a growl this time, came from Xandra as she glanced back. Her immediate reaction has been to kick, but she’d remembered Ael was a friend and restrained herself before accidentally kicking out his teeth. “Hey!” She laughed and tried to roll over only to find herself half pinned.

Unfortunately, one of her arms got trapped under her from his sudden change in tactics. She laughed and tried to roll him off her back. Her leg bent, trying to use her knee as leverage to roll her over. With luck, he’d end up on his back and her body could roll over him and off the other side of him.

But it also meant, if he ended up on his back, his arms would be free to grab her and stop her roll off. And her back being against his stomach meant she’d have no way to fend him off.

CAG

Ael landed hard on his back. He elected in that moment to hop to his feet and offered Xandra a chance to do the same. “I may be a young man, but I’m getting too old to roll around on the floor like that.” He chuckled.

He braced and took up a martial arts stance. “Your move. Sir.” He emphasized her new rank.

-Ael Khev

Xandra laughed and squared off with him once more. “None of us are young, anymore. At least not for tumbling. You did good. But we’re rarely in scrapping fights. Pilots are usually hostages taken by surprise.”

She stood up and relaxed a moment. “How good are you at escaping bear hugs and when up against a wall?” She moved to her water bottle to grab a sip while waiting for his response.
