16 - Punishment by IzunaOtoshi 16 - Punishment by IzunaOtoshi

Jessica fell back a couple steps, vigorously shaking her head from side to side in an attempt to clear the sudden onset of daze that Felicia’s brisk uppercut inflicted upon her. Just as Felicia had temporarily scrambled Jessica with a monstrous uppercut in the first round, she managed to do so once again. However, this time was different in that the uppercut made contact while Jessica was higher in her stance, and hence not with quite as much counter force since she was already reeling away from a left hook, meaning that there was not enough upward force this time to lift the Nova Striker from her feet as she did in the previous round. Still, the impact was plenty enough to disorient her, giving the Baroness plenty of time to march forward with the intent of causing further damage.

Sure enough, there was little Jessica could do to stop Felicia’s approach, the statuesque German stepping in threateningly behind a heavy left jab. The punch landed clean right between Jessica’s eyes, backing her up farther toward the ring ropes as she struggled to regain composure. Focused on getting her point across, Felicia continued to pepper the nurse’s face with a string of hard left jabs thrown from a squared off shoulder, two of them landing to her jawline.

“…Mmph! Mmph! Nph!” Jessica grunted lightly, her head dribbling back with each jab.

hmmmmmm this doesnt seem right. with the left uppercut i would think that it would have been followed by a hard right  But still good

It's all there in the story; the big left uppercut knocked Jessica a few steps back, and out of range for an immediate followup right. So, Felicia chased her down behind some hard left jabs instead :nod:

She ends with that following her successful intervention of Jessica's combo previously ;)

The nose tends to be fairly reliable for identifying things, or so I read :XD:

Awesome depiction of Felicia fixing Jessica's makeup with those repeated jabs!! The best one so far!! :clap::clap:

And of course, the great angle shows Felicia's other 'assets' Ashamed

The best jab? Or the best image of the entire match so far? That's quite a claim :XD:

It's not often we see the Nova Striker being the smaller of two pugilists in the ring, but Felicia's profile really does loom large, as does that punishing jab she's feeding Jessica.  She's pushing her ever closer to those ropes, and if Jess doesn't find a way around the jabs or clinches, she could be seeing a lot of stars after taking more of that German leather!

I do love the effects that truly highlight the powerful impacts of the in-ring action. :D

Very true. She's normally been the larger fighter (though we have seen her in other matches where she was shorter than her opponent, but Felicia's 4 inch difference is likely the biggest :nod:)

I wouldn't doubt her being already quite aware of her current ring positioning though ;p

Felicia is really taking it to Jessica now! She needs to keep the pressure on and knock her to the canvas. That'll make a statement! :kiss:

She already made a pretty big statement in the first round (a few of them actually :XD:)

Jessica seems lost, but I remember this happening to her against Valerie, during their match.  She won, but it was close!

The jab... don't leave home without it. The good nurse is taking some punishment at the hands of her newest adversary. And yet, I think she'll be returning the favor here pretty soon. ;p

I've actually left a bit of "hidden-in-plain-sight" foreshadowing in both the image and story for people who like to pay attention ;p
