GLADIATORIAL ARENA - BATTLE OF HISTORY 5
Celt Warrior V Amazon Princess
In the year 2645, the biggest form of entertainment is as it was nearly 3000 years ago; the Gladiatorial Arena.
In a high tech facility, with authentic hard-light replicas of ancient settings, people from all over the corner of the world (and beyond) do battle. These fights are streamed live instantaneously in 3D projections to billions of households where people can watch the blood spill onto their very own carpets.
Commentator: We are witnessing an amazing sight here today ladies and gentlemen. The pirate has drawn his sword and is preparing himself for a spectacular battle against the ninja, who has yet to move.
That’s right, he is just standing there and appraising his opponent, his quarterstaff in this hand and sword at the belt. I think he’s making the pirate captain nervous, and he’s now screaming at him to attack.
And… oh my god, the Ninja has just launched himself through the air at the pirate, twirling his staff and knocking the captain to the floor. It’s only some deft footwork, some quick reflexes and some impressive sword play that has kept the captain’s brain from being splattered all over the deck of the ship.
He’s up, and now the fighting has actually begun. The ninja has abandoned his staff and is using his sword. The sword is shorter than the captain’s but what the ninja lacks in size, he’s more than making up for in skill. And no, that’s not just a rude joke.
They are bursting back and forth along the deck, sparks flying as their swords clash. The ninja is constantly moving, twirling and launching kicks, somersaulting and cutting at the pirate’s legs. But the pirate is a Captain, and he has been through countless battles before. He’s using every single bit of experience to stay alive and is giving the ninja a good fight.
Suddenly…. The ship has lurched and tilted to port, or is that starboard? I can never remember, but its left! The ship has lurched to the left as the waves below crash against the prow, or helm or whatever you name it. I’m a commentator not a boat expert!
The ninja, who was mid-roundhouse kick, has lost his balance and been thrown to the floor. He’s up quick as a flash, but that split second was all the pirate needed. He has launched the knife from his belt at the ninja with devastating accuracy, but it still misses! The ninja is just too quick!
The battle is back on and this time the ninja is showing his true skills. The Captain is being beaten back towards side of the ship....
Oh my god ladies and gentlemen, the ninja has batted aside the pirate’s sword and plunged his own into the pirate’s guts. The captain is lurching back, the blood leaking from his stomach and staining his trousers. He’s out on the plank and it looks like it has suddenly dawned on him. He’s moving out further to the water, with the ninja’s deadly sword in front of him… He’s being made to walk the plank!
With a sudden attack, the ninja has plunged the sword into the captain’s stomach again and with a vicious kick has sent him sailing over the edge of the ship.
What a good fight that was, and that ninja is a mean s.o.b if I’ve ever seen one.
But the entertainment is not over for tonight my dear spectators, for the next contestants are entering Arena 3 as we speak.
Our first warrior comes straight from the Scottish highlands and has been raised from birth with a sword in hand. The Celt tribes are constantly at war and their mythology is filled with famous warriors wading through battles and blood and saving the day. With the tribal paint, the muscled chest and the crazy grin, he looks the part of what he is, a ferocious combatant, fearless and very dangerous.
His opponent is equally as dangerous. The famous Amazon Princess! Whilst the real amazons were only a myth, they were actually inspired by the Sarmatians of Eastern Europe and Asia. The were warlike and whilst the men were away, the women would defend their home with devastating skill. This one is none other than the King’s daughter and as such has been given the training from birth to defend her homeland. Did I also mention that she is devastatingly beautiful?
This is going to be an interesting fight ladies and gentlemen, the beauty versus the beast, expect in this case they both have weapons and have been trained to kill someone without hesitation.
