It was a simple arena, nothing spectacular. A simple forest, with long shadows cast by the setting sun. A curious sight walked around the space, admiring the intricate magics that made all this possible within the building. Scarlet could even feel the lingering heat of the setting sun in this training room. Her solid red eyes not hidden by the passive enchantment on the glasses that made them appear normal looked about the scene for her opponent. Her ruby scaled wings ruffled a little in anticipation, and the wide smile she wore only gave the barest of hints towards the abundance of sharp, pointed teeth that hid inside. A scrap of movement drew her face, and with the abrupt turn, her purple and red mane bobbed lightly. As she shifted her whole body, the two tails, one red and the other purple, briefly separated before resettling next to each other. "Oh, are you ready?" she asked openly and with some happy excitement to her voice.

Star stepped away from behind the tree he was watching from. He slowly walked closer to Scarlet, though kept his distance. He eyed her with his teal eyes as his left wing shifted a bit to get comfortable due to the sword strapped to that side of him. He reached a hoof up to move a bit of his black mane out from his eyes as he smiled just slightly at her. He laughed a tiny bit. "Am I ready? Of course I am. Are you ready?" He asked back at her as he shifted into a defensive position, waiting for her to make a move.

"I guess you could say that," Scarlet replied as she continued to just stand there. She simply drew her knife and pointed it at Star. "I'm ready to fight you," she said around the weapon in her mouth. Scarlet then spread her ruby wings, making her appear as a rather startling visage with the background of the setting sun. Then with a sudden burst of a flap, Scarlet launched herself into the air, only to descend at Star, the little dagger pointed right at him.

Star kept an eye on Scarlet as she pointed the dagger at him. When she spread her wings, he did the same, but he didn't make a move when she launched up into the air. He watched her closely for a moment. Only at the second to last possible moment did he decide he should move, so he used his wings and flapped them to give him an extra boost as he dove to the side away from Scarlet. He quickly stood back on his hooves and turned to look at Scarlet again.

Scarlet had landed in a bit of a heap, but the dagger remained clutched in her teeth as she picked herself back up and looked towards Star again. "You weren't supposed to move," Scarlet grumbled as she looked herself over for more serious injury from her little tumble. Finding herself relatively uninjured past a small scrape, Scarlet spread her wings and took to the air again. This time though, she stuck lower to the ground when she charged forward on a powerful flab of her unusual wings. The knife however remained aimed at the same spot.

"Oh. What I not suppose to move? I'm sorry." Star said quickly as he backed up away from her. He kept his eyes on her. He spread his wings again when she took to the sky once more. He smiled a little when he saw her charging him. He backed up quickly so that he was a bit closer to a tree. He waited for a moment or two before taking off to the side, flying for a few meters before stopping and looking behind him.

Learning from the last time, Scarlet ducked to the side to avoid colliding with the tree that was suddenly in the same place where Star had been moments ago. Scarlet circled about until she was once more flying towards him, though this time it was less of a charge and more of an actual planned slash. "Quit moving around!" she demanded between the clenched teeth.

Star hummed to himself for a moment before grabbing his sword in his teeth. He turned towards Scarlet and shifted into a more of a defensive stance. "Are you getting mad at me moving around?" He said through the sword in his mouth. He took note of how far or close every tree and their branches were as he waited for Scarlet to strike at him.

Scarlet didn't really react to Star's change in stance, she just kept flying forward until she got within range of a strike and then brought the small blade about in a horizontal slash.

Star brought up his sword and moved to block the dagger, wary not to actually get cut by it. At the same time, his forelegs and hindlegs moved up to try and kick her away from him to give him room away from her. Also to try and get her away from stabbing range.

Quite likely to Star's surprise, the dagger would go right through the sword, or rather, the sword went right through the dagger. A similar situation when he would kick out, finding his hooves just disappearing into the form of the strange pegasus. Shortly after this, the figure would turn solid black, and seemingly melt away.

Overhead though, a new figure emerged from the canopy of trees. Rapidly descending was another Scarlet, same dagger, only held in the forehooves this time but still poised to be plunged into Star's back. A little war cry even accompanied the descending Scarlet.

Star blinked in surprise. He flailed around a tiny bit because he was expecting to make impact on the mare. He looked around quickly for Scarlet as his ear twitched. He quickly turned his head upwards and saw her coming at him. Acting quickly, he let go of his sword from his mouth and let it drop into his hooves as he turned to fly away from her.

Scarlet let out another little roar of frustration as her most recent stab at the thestral missed again. "Quit running away from me!" She cried before flying after Star. Though her heavier, scaled wings made her flying a bit slower, and she was soon well behind him, and then out of sight as she ducked behind a tree, but didn't appear around the other side. Even if Star went over and investigated the tree, he wouldn't find her behind it.

That would however prove to be the center of his problems as suddenly a pair of glowing red orbs appeared in a nearby, thicker collection of branches. Followed by several more appearing around Star. A total of 13 appeared, some above, some below, but a majority of them around his level and surrounding him.

Star looked behind him at Scarlet and paused when he didn't see her behind him. He gulped and helps his sword defensively in his hooves. "Oh this is not good..." He muttered to himself as he looked around. He blinked and stared all the glowing red orbs staring at him. "Oh this is very not good..." He quickly though of what to do. Majority were leveled with him so flying to the side to get away was a bad idea. Down was not even a question and up...Well it was the only logical direction to go. He flew straight up as he shifted his sword a little bit so he could attack anything that came at him.

As Star flew past them, more of the little ruby colored orbs formed around him, and when he drew too far away from others, they simply disappeared. It wouldn't take Star long to reach and then break through the canopy though, and Scarlet wanted to act before that happened. So a Scarlet suddenly emerged from another bundle of branches and leaves, and started to chase after Star, dagger still drawn and held in the forehooves. She was however still flying slower, a fact almost compounded by the fact that they were flying up, which was harder, and so she lagged behind even more.

Star looked below him as a Scarlet gave chase to him. Was it the real one, he had to wonder. She was slow and he was close to flying out of the canopy. He growled a little. He spread his wings wide to stop himself in midair. He didn't hesitate a moment later as he turned and dove straight at her head first, his wings close to his side but not folded in case he needed to stop himself. Once he was close enough he tried to slash at the Scarlet with his sword.

Scarlet yelped at Star's sudden change in direction, and it took nearly everything she could just to block the slash of Star's longer weapon with her own short little dagger. The blades clashed, and the impact sent Scarlet's form reeling back through the air. The young mare didn't have the physical strength to match his and so, as she fell after the clash, Scarlet flared her wings and angled herself towards a cluster of tree branches, momentarily disappearing from sight thanks to the thick foliage. Then her form flew right back out of the bushes, away from Star, and at a roughly horizontal level.

Star spread his wings wide to stop himself from falling anymore as he watched Scarlet fall and disappear. He eyed the Scarlet that came out of the buses for a second, debating whither it was the real one or not. She could easily be still in the bush. He grumbled as he flew up a little bit so that he was higher then her before flying off to chase her. "You're the one running away now?" He shouted out as he flew. He held his sword defensibly, prepared for anything to pop up behind him.

As Star fell into following this Scarlet, a second one flew out of the foliage that she'd fallen into the first time. Meanwhile, the lead one that Star had opted to follow, slowed down, turned around and stuck her tongue out at the pursuing thestral, as the one from behind approached. Both had daggers out and raised at the ready.

Star blinked as the Scarlet in front of him slowed down and stuck her tongue out at him. Confused he dared look back at him and saw there was another one chasing him. "Oh you little..." He growled as he continued to fly after the one in front of him. Slow...That's what she was when flying. He tried to think of what to do and which one was the real one. He spread out his wings to stop him as he turned to face the one behind him. He then flew straight at her, sword poised to strike at her when she was close.

Both Scarlet's began to close in on Star when he stopped and turned around. Both had their dagger raised in the same fashion, but when the one he was facing got close, she raised her dagger defensively, as if to block the strike. When it came, the blow would go right through her, with the body turning completely black and dissolving away into nothing a moment later. "I've got you now!" the one behind Star called out in at the time the apparent illusion was dissolving away as she stabbed forward with her dagger at Star's back.

Star growled as his sword passed right through the one he was striking at. He had to act and think quick because the real one was right behind him and she was going to stab him. He flapped his wings to push him forward a little bit before kicking behind him at the real Scarlet with all his might. "Damn mare!" This was a really dumb idea and he was probably going to get stabbed in his leg. If that was the case, it was better then getting stabbed in the back.

At best, the dagger would skit across one of Star's back legs as they shot out to catch Scarlet. And catch her they did, squarely in the chest and knocking the wind from the poor thestral as she fell backwards. Her wings don't flap immediately, and Scarlet begins to fall onto a tree branch a short distance away. When on it, Scarlet tries to force air back into her frame as she turns to look up at Star with hurt eyes.

They don't stay that way for long though before squinting in determination and beginning to glow red. The shadow beneath her solidifies before rising up to encase her in black orb and a moment later, several Scarlet's fly out of the sphere and all 7 of them flying right at Star with daggers raised and from various angles. Two are charging straight ahead, another from overhead, one from below, one on each side, and even one circling around to come at Star from behind. The orb however is still on the tree branch, and a line appears on it's surface. This line splits open as it shifts to a large red eye that watches Star and the Scarlet's.

Star turned around and watched Scarlet fall down to the branches. He lifted his hindleg to look at it for a moment before sighing. "Looks like you don't have me." He smiled down at her then frowned when he saw her eyes glow red. He gulped when a black orb encased her and seven Scarlets flew at him. He held his sword at the ready as he eyed all the Scarlets all around him. He looked down at the orb again and saw that...it was now an eye. Cursing, he quickly flew up, keeping his sword at the ready for the Scarlet above him. When and if he got close enough, he'd swing at her.

The Scarlet above him would disappear with the sword slash as it went right through the illusionary dagger and then the rest of the illusion. The other Scarlet's however pursued, three of them flying overhead of Star and swooping down for their attack while the other three rose so they could enclose on him from the sides. Down below, the eye continued to watch the scene play out.
