She was well aware at this point her next attack was either going to break her opponents spirit or push him to find something to fight back, and quite frankly she was on the fence of which one she preferred at this point. This entire situation hadn't turned out quite like she had hoped frankly, the target she had initially gone after finding a much difference dance partner, but it was lending her a bit of extra motivation to take out her frustrations on the one in front of her now. The feeling of her knee connecting was satisfying, bringing that toothy grin spreading across her face to an almost sickening degree, and her eyes now bulging wide opened as she was back to a standing position staring at Dosu.
What she felt next caused the smile to pull almost painfully as she once more felt a rise in Dosu's power, gritting her teeth and clenching her fists as she stared. This was what she was hoping for, even stomping her foot and letting out a cackling laugh as she leaned back. There was still a feeling inside of her that what was coming would have been still far weaker than her own strength as she could feel at most a doubling in his power as he rushed her, barely putting up a full defense. In her mind she was going to let him get in a few hits and return her own to further push salt into the wound, but what she didn't expect was the sudden burst in strength of his first punch, connecting with her jaw and causing her to stumble, making the incoming kick connect, and the third barely blocked with her arms both raising up to cover her face.
Keeping her arms raised she was managing to at least absorb the pressure for now, but the smile on her face hadn't left, and as the punches kept coming she was backing away less and holding her ground more, feeling the excitement. The attacks were coming in not so quick but with strength at the point of attack which was making them awkward at first, but she was starting to pick up on it, even managing to deflect one until she caught a jab on the jaw for a second time which once again knocked her just a bit off balance. With that flash of disorientation she felt a tug and the world turned upside down as she found herself with no ground under her feet and gravity pulling her towards the water below.
There was no easy way to regain her balance given her falling, but an incoming attack smacked her against the side of the ship, stopping her falling momentum at the very least, and giving her a chance to regain her composure. It was short lived however, as an incoming kick connected making the Ruby sized dent into a Ruby sized hole in the side of the ship. Momentum had taken over for a second time, but it wasn't water hurriedly meeting her but multiple floors of the ship, leaving her airborne for a few feet before she was not far from where she had started back topside. Laying there for a moment breathing heavily, she rolled over onto her stomach, reaching up not to check on her wounds, but to make sure her hair was okay, finding both of the twist ties missing and her hair a mess.
She was up to her feet by the time Dosu had gotten back to her, but her back was turned for a moment, twisting slowly with her teeth still showing, but not in the same smile but a look of pure anger.
"You screwed up my hair! Do you know how long it takes to get how I want it?"
Her left arm had a long scratch leaking blood down her finger tips, her teeth were stained red from the earlier punches, she wasn't sure she didn't have at least a partially cracked rib, but it was her messed up hair that had sent her into a full blown rage. Bending over as she begin to growl she let out a sound like a howling banshee and took off running towards Dosu. Before she was realistically close enough to land a blow she had launched off the ground and into the air as her right leg looked to catch fire. As the fire increased in intensity her body spun, aiming to land a spinning back heel kick to the same side of the face she had kneed earlier.
