The look of boredom on Najila's face remained until she heard Iyaz's reply. For the longest moment, she was unsure whether or not the Ironhide was still conscious underneath her fist. An earthshattering power returned to the giant's fist that woke her up and forced her to take a step back to maintain her balance. And when Iyaz lept into the sky to strike his opponent, she moved into the path of his attack and met his fist with her own thick skull and neutralized all of his momentum instantly.

If Grom caught sight of her face, he'd see that same glimmer in her eye that she had when he spoke of his battle with her father not too long ago.

"Now I see why you're the champion," her delayed greeting to the man who had just proven himself, still in free-fall, "Pleasure to meet you, Iyaz"

A blur would approach from the corner of the Ironhide's eye; much too massive to slip through his senses without notice. The massive palm of the giant's hand that sought to whip his frame from the side and send him hurtling to the very edges of the arena and send him scraping along the outer wall; testing not only his ability to take a hit but hold his lunch and maintain consciousness when subjected to astronomical amount of G-forces.

Regardless of where the champion ended up after Najila's strike, even if he traveled the entire three kilometers of the arena before he could bat an eye, if he looked behind him to catch sight of his opponent then he would find the shadow looming over him mere meters away, glimmering blue eyes staring hungrily at him, as though he hadn't moved at all.

Not my best post, but I'm exhausted and just wanting to put something up, lol.

It all happened very fast. First came the headbutt that cancelled out the momentum Iyaz had built up, and the power of his fist in a clash that sent air shattering waves of force rippling out from the collision, creating cracks and tears that would shred anything caught within its influence. Although the giant had tanked his strike, she would not be exempt from this backlash.

And then came the fist, too big for Iyaz to not notice, and something he didn't really try to defend against. If there was one thing Iyaz was confident, it was his superior defense that could not possibly be undermined by an inexperienced girl, no matter who her father was. The fist launched Iyaz to the far side of the arena where he crashed against the barrier protecting the audience in a massive bang. Iyaz had his gaze fixed on hers, never leaving hers for once.

He slid down until he was standing on the arena floor, literally without a scratch on his body. The clothes were torn and shredded but he himself had taken no damage. "Disappointing, I'd have thought that given your heritage, you would be stronger than this. It seems I miscalculated, and the reason behind your softness is attributed to the fact that you have the blood of an impure half breed flowing through you," Yes, he'd heard stories about the Earth woman, the mother of Najila. "Truly disappointing," The corner of his mouth uplifted into a smirk. He wanted to bring out the girl's 100%, to fight a fight where she held the remotest chance of beating him.

--

Grom's gaze widened as he heard Iyaz talk. It all made sense now. That glimmer in her eyes when he spoke about how he defeated Ali, and her expression now when she saw Iyaz's strength, and what he had just said now, it all came together to prove who this girl really was. The only daughter of the current Lord of Shea, Najila! That explained her abnormal speed. And technically what she told him wasn't far off. Even if her father was of t he Lightning God faction, as the daughter of her mother, she was often considered a daughter of the Giant clan, and they didn't really accept her as their own.

Najila stopped and looked upwards as Iyaz simply waited for her on the ground without retaliating at all. At her current height, she was already too close to the ceiling for comfort. And, given how comfortable her opponent seemed to be, she came to realize that power wasn't something she could rely on to take the Ironhide down.

...

Or, maybe it was. Just... not directly. She turned her sights back to her opponent; hands at each side as though she were getting ready to clap.

She approached Iyaz; her fingers diving into the soil as they raced towards him at the speeds expected of an Outsider. He probably wouldn't be able to avoid her attack but, honestly, he probably wouldn't try even if he could. If a fist couldn't phase him, why would her open palms? And was she honestly trying to crush someone with his level of strength in this situation?

Funnily enough, her hands stopped moving before they even touched the Ironhide.

No, the only thing that might've hit him at that moment was some of the dirt flung about by her fingers carving through the soil. Instead, Najila's fingers would curl around Iyaz and interlock with each other to form a prison around the Ironhide and lift him into the air. See, there are two things that the giant had realized whilst Iyaz was boasting.

First, it's a lot easier to hold an Ironhide in place than it was to, well, break through their "Iron hide".

Second, he obviously knew who she was, so there was no reason not to make use of powers that might hint at her ancestry.

Oh yeah, and I guess there was a third thing. She wasn't really fond of people making fun of her parents.

And so, within a prison formed by the hands of a titan, Iyaz's chamber would be flooded with as much electricity as Najila could produce. Gigawatts would surge into her hands and work to not only electrify him directly but burn his body, turn whatever air was locked inside into ozone, and weaken whatever attempts that he might've made to escape in the first place.

As for the audience? All that they'd notice is the Ironhide being scooped into Dugina's hands and a faint glow emanating from between her interlaced fingers.

Why would Iyaz bother dodging when her strength had already proven ineffective? This was the most logical decision. And yet, it backfired, backfired when Iyaz realized something was burning. That was shocking because Iyaz was naturally resistant to heat and cold. Normal elements were not enough to hurt him. By the time he realized what was up, her hands were steadily firing a discharge of super hot electrons [lightning], her hands acting as a superficial oven with temperatures at its core rivaling surface temperatures of the sun.

"Don't think you'll beat me with just that, motherless," Iyaz, although portions of his face, shoulders, chest and his outer thighs were heavily burnt, he could just continue ignoring the burns and pain. He'd have plenty of time to deal with that. Right now, he just needed to endure this punishment. Although Iyaz hated having to come out with this form he had reserved to fight Ali with, at this moment, he had no choice. His skin returned to normal as though he was formless, but soon afterwards, his body started taking in what the giantess was dealing. Electrons getting absorbed around him in a dense layer of skin, to form the 'Lightning Hide' that only he in the clan was able to take form of, and this was mainly because, in order to harness this particular form, you needed a particularly tough ironhide and on top of that, you needed an external source, unlike most other Ironhide forms. These two factors made it so that it was only Iyaz.

---

Meanwhile, Rana had gone up the stairs into her locker room. Although it was a victory, she could hear the clashes, that the girl who supposedly was beaten by her was having with the champion. The champion who was second only to the master of the arena. What a joke. She punched the metal door of her locker in frustration, bending it open under pressure. "FUCK!" She yelled. Noway she was going to take the victory.

---

Amidst the roaring of the crowd who thought Iyaz was beaten, he'd let loose with a punch that sent billions of sizzling electrons hurling at the walls of the organic prison that the giantess Dugina had subjected him to. It was the combined might of his base strength and that of the added lightning.

For a being born with a natural affinity for and resistance to electricity, a stream of electrons was about as threatening as a waterfall was to a river. Even so, Iyaz's fist still carried a great deal of strength. He managed to loosen the giant's grip and set himself free, but everyone there could see that some damage was done. She could hurt him, which meant that she could win. And, unfortunately for Iyaz, he was again left falling helplessly to the ground. Najila simply brought her fists back to a guarding position; more out of habit than a necessity at that moment.

"You know that you can't win if you don't fight back, right?" she asked the Ironhide in freefall.

And before he had a chance to hit the ground, she simply took a step forward and sent a colossal knee rocketing upwards into his spine. She noticed that there was little that he could do whilst in the air, so she had decided to try and keep him there as long as she could. But, even more than that, she wanted to repeat the same test that she had tried on Rana. She had already seen how poorly the Ironhide handled her lightning in his other form, but she had yet to see how much of a beating he could take in a form designed to handle electricity and not the might of a titan.

Iyaz was in for the time of his life.

Given that Iyaz was in a form that accomodated lightning, it came to no surprise that he was able to use the sizzling electrons to a further advantage. This came in the form of speed that closely rivaled that of Ali and his sister, hailed to have been many times faster than Ali ever was. Iyaz did not use the speed to win races, His application of the newfound stats were more applied in battle, and right now, as he was falling, and as Najila's knee came crashing down on his back, he waited, waited until her knees touched his spine, using that very moment to use a lightning propelled fist to change his direction drastically. Besides this though, Iyaz was incapable of much else.

However, as he came to land at the edge of the arena, he was then launch back into the fight in less than a femtosecond, arriving right next to Najila's face that very instant. His fist, as he launched it, changed into diamond, and it held in it enough force to level a country or two. Not a very strong fist at all. He threw a few of these and kicks all the while being on guard for any counter attack that might come.

Najila had seen it before. He had put more power and speed behind it, but it was just the same move for the second time. A flightless man jumping multiple stories into the sky in an attempt to hit a larger, heavier, grounded opponent in the face. She didn't understand why he thought that adding a bit more effort to his attack would make much of a difference when it was a fundamentally disadvantageous move.

You see, at her height, all she had to do was lean a bit in practically any direction and she was well out of range of her opponent's arms that were, at most, two feet long and she was left with an opponent who had no control over his own movement and, well... kinda in the palm of her hand. The biggest issue that she had encountered in this duel was his extraordinary durability; even for his race. But, even still, the burns covering his body confirmed that he didn't light lightning.

The very same fist that he extended to shatter her bones, the diamond-clad skin covering his forearm, it was a double-edged sword in this match-up. It gave him the strength that he needed to tear titans such as herself apart, but it cost him protection from what was shown to be her most effective weapon against him. And so, as his arm approached full extension on his first blow, it would act as a lightning rod leading to the Ironhide's core. The very same power that had cooked him from the inside out once before would surge from the titan's cheek, flow through his diamond skin, and work to burn him alive from the inside out and make what few injuries he already had much, much worse.

Unlike before, when she let loose her electricity within the palms of her hands, the stadium would fill with a blinding flare of light from the surge of rushing electrons that would blind many of the audience members for an instant, and likely Iyaz, himself.

But that wouldn't matter very much if he was already out cold, would it?

Iyaz had never felt a blow so cold, so savage and so painful in his life. He could feel it. His normal skin boiling under his Ironhide, and heat unlike he had never felt before, and he'd walked in lava and swam through the fires of hell. It was nothing like what Najila had in store for him. And then came the strike. A strike that blinded everyone.

Up in the rows of seats, Iyaz had now sat down, his arms resting on the butt of his Axe resting against the floor, his gaze not missing a single beat the entire time. Truly, she'd hidden her talents well. What a monster. Grom let out a sigh. Her ferocity certainly surpassed that of her father, that much was for certain. Slowly, Grom rose up from where he sat. This match, it'd already been decided. Iyaz had no consciousness in him, and lay on the other side of the stadium, half his body buried down under, and smoking hot, heat enough to glass the ground around him.

"You are disqualified, princess." Grom's voice resounded within the arena. He was speaking via microphones fitted into his collar. "Return to the lobby and I will escort you back home,"

Grom was not angry or anything, but the girl did lie about who she was, and her powers on top of that. There was no way he was going to let her stay after that. As for Iyaz, UFA medics soon arrived on scene to take care of him. Grom was, as a matter of fact, happy with how things turned out. The princess was always shielded by his father and no one knew what she was like, or how strong she was. Grom was able to gauge her strength just now, and it was more than enough to be comparable to a Heavenly King; and he should know, he fought one of those monsters.

A few minutes later, Grom waited for the girl at the reception.

Najila came around the corner to where Grom was shortly after he arrived. She had a few bloody tissues stuffed up her nostrils and a nose that may or may not have been broken but she was more-or-less no worse for the wear. She wore a blank face; the kinda face that someone who had no idea what they were about to hear would have. The princess took a seat next to her ex-manager, let her eyes magnetize to the wall opposite where they were sitting and spoke softly to the old man.

"I don't really want my father knowing that I'm back in the realm. At least not yet..." she admitted to Grom, "But, hey, I gave them quite the show, didn't I?"

Grom had a warm expression as he spoke to her, one void of any malice or ill intention. The words he spoke, they were more of the inquisitive nature than anything else. "You gave my audience a show princess, and a damn good one." His voice boomed, "And for that, I will reward you personally, but, princess, what makes you think I'm obliged to listen to you?"
