Twitching on the ground at the back of the hallway, Safe looked upwards to refocus on the figure. Those biohazard containment units lay scattered around having suffered the impact of her body, and her own back was covered in bruises. As the blurry shape finally became clear and Safe was halfway onto her feet, the large and imposing leader spoke out in a booming voice paired with intimidating footfalls as he walked ever closer.
"As if our resting place was disturbed by a mere idiot with too much power than they know how to use. For some time I almost thought you had managed to sense me despite my energy suppression as you approached our snowed in vessel. It seems I was wrong, a mere fluke. If you had known I was as strong as you do now, you'd have dodged that attack."
Standing up shakily onto both feet, Safe grit her teeth and focused forward. Breathing heavily with her back against the wall, she replied with a slight smirk and furrowed brows. "Despite being so strong, you're hiding in the first place. I see that as karma that had me uproot you today. The universe doesn't fancy cowardice in the realm of fighting, battle and warfare."
The figure suddenly dashed forward and closed the gap, slamming into Safe's block and ejecting her forcefully from the side of the ship. Bursting out, the engines that had been causing a rumble as it took off from the snowy wastes faltered momentarily. Wincing from the pain, Safe recognized where they were. They were in the upper atmosphere of Earth, almost bordering space. Stabilizing herself in the air, as the hole she'd been smashed through was rushed to by repair units, their commander flew out and followed after her.
Cracking his neck both ways, he continued to speak. "Looks like I had to take you out myself after all. I thought for a brat such as yourself the ships defences would be enough. Though oh well, upgrades to be done later." Looking up, Safe noticed the large saucer stop just in full space. Simply resting there to await for the commanders return, it was when she looked down to spot the figure that she noticed he was right in her face with a fist drawn back.
On top of noticing the fist, she took in the appearance of the figure for the first time since seeing them. They stood at least seven and a half feet tall, with bulging muscles and purple skin. A smug grin was on their face, and with swept back aqua colored hair it became apparent that this was some kind of alien from outer space - as if the ship itself hadn't been proof enough. Snapping a hand out to quickly catch the punch, a burst of energy rippled through the high orbit sky. If the next second could be said to have gone by in slow motion, the blur of rapid punches and blocks that followed afterwards as the two figures clashed in the high skies above Earth seemed to be fast forwarded. A flurry of arms and kicks that tangled amidst one another. Tens of punches caught in Safe's palm and plenty of her own attacks blocked by the Commander.
A smile started to form over Safe's face, "It seems like you can keep up with casual Safety, let's see how you keep up when super Safety!" She shouted, her form starting to change in the middle of the flurry of blows. The beginning of which broke apart the exchange of attacks as one massive punch from her forcefully sent the Commander flying backwards with a shaky block having painfully stopped the actual damage of the blow.
Her hair started to stand up on end as wisps of energy began to invoke a full on aura around her body. As she let out a roar to channel the massive influx of overflowing ki from within her body, her muscles rippled and she grew taller. Heat poured from her body so much so that steam practically jetted out from her mouth, nose and ears like a train. At the end of her transformation, she stabilized and stared towards the Commander that'd just recovered from her hit. Bringing a hand up to the crook of her neck, she cracked it one way and then cracked it the other.
Her tone had changed, going from normal, enthusiastic and even slightly cheery to more of a serious one. "So, then. I've shown you what I can tap into, can you keep up?" The silence from the Commander paired with the terrified expression answered the question before it could come to a spoken answer. Narrowing her eyes, she took a deep breath.
"Then you have two choices. Return to your ship and try again when you're stronger, retaining more of your pride than the other option. Which, is to try and defeat me and lose in front of your entire crew."
Practically seething, the figure gripped their fists and stared Safe down. Yet, perhaps choosing the wiser decision, he began to float upwards towards the ship. Entering from a slot that opened on the base of it, the large saucer zoomed off into Outer Space.
Letting out a sigh, Safe just began to fly back towards the planet. Whatever adventure lied in wait for her next, would be up to fate to decide.
