Thankfully, the screen was far enough that the explosion only startled him. Quickly covering his face with his arms, he fell backwards of the chair were he landed on his back. Still in shock, he lowered his guard and felt pain around random parts of his body. The shattered glass of the TV made a few superficial cuts, none of them serious.

When he realized what just happened, he cautiously woke up and not looking at anyone, he walked across the room with a worried expression. He left the room so he could get healed and ready for the match that could be announced anytime.

It was a possibility that this little incident would slightly hinder him, but he wanted it to be just an unfortunate incident. Just to be sure, he went to get himself some quick treatment and revision, unwittingly leaving his sheathed sword besides the fallen seat. He really wanted to be completely ready to give it his all.

The hyena's brow furrowed at Maxies semi statement of 'all fun and games,' and seems to murmer something under her breath. Not so quietly as to not be heard, but she's definetly not trying to attract attention. For those who are listening, she said something along the lines of 'Hard to have fun when theres basically nothin' but try-hards left.'

But fortunatly, a cheerful, bemused smile rapidly floods her face at Maxie's response to her own question. 'Oh yes, I could definetly get information out of that... but doesn't that make it more.. thrillin'?' she says, putting a lot of emphasis on that last word. 'Besides, I thought you were a regal griffon, not a cluckin' chicken~ I didn't think you'd be one to shy away from such a thin', but I guess I was wrooooong.' she exclaims, her smile widening just a tad.

Before she can say anything more, an odd series of events seem to take place. First that weirdo hacker kid sits down and starts... trying to poke Maxie? Esme blinked, not entirely sure why he didn't just go the full mile and poke her repeatedly. Before she can voice this, the griffon spins round and scolds him... annnnd then he's very shortly after hit by a paper airplane! She giggles, quite loudly, at his sudden looking around... and then laughs louder as the culprit has a monitor blow up nearby. Not because she thought that was funny, but mainly because it was so.. blunt. Like, there was almost certainly noway it could have been anyone but malware who caused that.

After a moments thought, she leans close to Bou and whispers 'Ten credits says Hot shot goes and shouts and him for that~'

The vixen did notice the small smile from Froshana, and she did her best to somewhat return it, though it wasn't long before she was completely absent from the room in terms of mind. She simply listened to the conflicts happening across the room from her, getting slightly annoyed but trying not to show it, but, things only seemed to get worse from there.

Sora jumped at the explosion, making the sofa she was laying on fall backwards and her land on top of it, eyes wide. "Wh-What the FUCK?!" She yelled, clearly startled. Though she quickly took note of her awkward position and slipped onto her feet, grumbling and pushing the sofa back up. "...Alright, who was the wise guy that did that?" She demanded, her eyes scanning for just who could've done it. Clearly she didn't quite believe in the small possibility that it was a technical fault.

Looking at her own paws was even more boring than she might've expected. It wasn't long before the sound of Maxie responding to Malware's younger sibling-type behavior drew the hedgehog's attention again. Her brows gave something of a shrugging motion and she was just about to look away again when something sailing through the air caught her attention again.

A paper airplane...?

She'd never been to school, but enough television-watching made her wonder if this was going to devolve into classroom antics pretty soon. She didn't at all predict Malware's response, though. At first, it seemed he was just looking for the source. But then she saw him point to one of the televisions in the room and...?

The sound of the screen exploding and its pieces flying into things was sudden enough that the hedgehog jumped in her seat. It was enough of a surprise that, like some of the others, she visibly tensed and the bristling quills behind her just further accentuated that. She did, however, manage to stay in her seat.

She looked over to Zephyr, who was the closest to the explosion and actually appeared to have been somewhat injured by it. Fortunately nothing major, but he certainly seemed quick to get up and head for the exit. Her attention also settled on Sora for a few moments, who'd also fallen from her seat in surprise. At least she didn't appear to have been hurt.

Froshana looked back over to Malware. Had he really intended to make the television explode? Or more importantly, how would the tournament officials respond to the little... outburst?

Boubka smiled a nodded to Maxie's answer. "Fun and games, yes!" But then immediately after this reaction: 'Hard to have fun when theres basically nothin' but try-hards left.' Did....did she meant him?.... was he a try-hard? Ah poop. And he thought that he actually was a pretty decent guy. "A-...Am I a-"

No time to ask questions since the hacker dude came closer to them. Not for him though, it was rather for the person that didn't want to be called Max. It made him wonder if he wanted to ask her something, so he kept his mouth shut until the hacker dude was finished. But he didn't start a sentence at all, so it more became a awkward silence of all things.

Oh now Maxie is getting passive aggressive. Bou has only known Maxie for two days now (Or four including the resting days i dunno), but he knew already that you shouldn't make Maxie angry, because something not fun will happen. He still didn't exactly know what. He actually wanted to find that out and the hacker dude seemed to come close to that.

But he stopped. What a bummer. He'd love to see his butt getting kicked. OH BUT THEN HE STARTS BREAKING MONITORS. Boubka, the easily activated fox, jumped into the couch from the sound. "OI!..." Adrenaline went racing through his body. His eyes started to glow. Does this guy even realise that there is money bound to everything?

Esme wanted to bet. She seemed to be as jolly as ever. That made Bou realize that he could do that too. He calmed down a bit and grinned. "Sure why not. 'Hotshot' is not gonna shout at him. He's a bit too careful. Ten credits." He shook Esme's hand. Maybe he's even gonna win money illegally here by betting! What an amazing world we live in.

All of the talking, and Twilight's listening was interrupted by the explosion. He looked over at the blown out TV screen- then proceeded to observe everyone else's reactions. Esme's comment got a chuckle out of him. His posture didn't change, but he did look slightly more amused and perhaps even a little more smug as he felt that there's no way anybody here in this lounge at this moment could possibly be above him. Those feelings, he thought, were being proven correct at this little display. Who would be the next one to make a fool of themselves? 

"Oh I wonder... how long it will take for our gracious host to flip his lid..." He chuckled again.

So, a lot had just happened there. First of all, back with the uninvited guest... Well, Greg had rather reached the conclusion he was uninvited, considering no competitor had stepped up to claim him.
Either way, a dash of coins in the zebra's face had worked as a sand attack of sorts, causing him to shut his eyes and flinch back slightly as the bird dashed away. Well great. That'd probably cover the cost of a plate. Maybe.
Sighing, Greg bent as if to pick the coins up - only to be stopped be a voice in his ear. It would probably be rather unbecoming to hae the host visibly scratching money up off the floor. They'd just get one of their security guys to do it. Those guys could make anything look cool.
Besides which, he soon had something else to turn his attention to...

Boom!
One of the TV screens had gone off quite dramatically - in a way that seemed rather suspect. Now, Greg didn't know much about TVs - but he was relatively certain that they didn't blow up like that in most circumstances. Especially not without interference...
Plus, Malware was pointing directly at the screen. That... that was also kind of a hint.

The zebra hesitated for a second. That was... holy shit that was bad. They'd just got rid of one psychotic competitor, they didn't need another. Especially not one who was willing to bring that psychopathy into the general lounge area.
He was worried about having to deal with this. Really worried. What if they guy was dangerous? What if he couldn't be stopped? ...But then Handsome Greg realised something.
He was Handsome Greg.

Rolling up his sleeves, the zebra approached the masked individual. Whilst he didn't seem to strike an immediately threatening figure - what with his short stature and generally dorky nature - it was quite evident as he rolled his sleeves back that he was actually rather thickly built, especially around those forearms. A punch from this guy would hurt.
"Now you listen here!" he declared, "You're not the first person in this tournament to step in here and start acting like a punk! It's not too late for us to give you the boot, and believe you me, I'm getting sick and tired of-!"

BEEP BEEP BEEP


Oh. Thanks head office. You guys really... yep, thanks guys.
There was a slight awkward pause, before the Zebra rolled down his sleeves, taking up position near the exit. Welp... duty called.
"Ladies and Gentlemen!" he spoke up with a slightly strained grin, "I hope you're all ready for Round 3 of tournament! All remaining competitors are to fight in this round... And after today, only four of you are to remain."
He gave a pause, allowing that to sink in. He imagined that would really get some of them on edge.
"Boubka and Amber, hope you don't mind flying, because there's a helicopter waiting outside for you. Esme and Froshana, slightly shorter trip for you, though I ain't gonna complain if you see fit to take the time to get changed before your bout. Zephyr and Maxie, grab your bags, and get ready to price each other up. Malware and Twilight..." he paused for a second, barely disguising a slight grin forming on his face, "...you two have fun! This one is to make it into the semi-finals, so you'd better all be on your a-game! Because now it really matters."

It seemed that much of the attention promptly settled on Greg to observe his reaction to Malware's little stunt. Froshana also eyed the zebra as he seemed to finally lose his cool. Her gaze darted back and forth between him and Malware as she wondered how the fox would react to being scolded. Then again, he was acting like a child...

Before the conflict could continue further, the sound of the alarm announcing the beginning of the third round sounded and the hedgehog looked towards the television screens. Her nerves were definitely back again in full force. As her opponent was announced, it took Froshana a few moments to look at the screen, then spot Esme out on one of the couches. Knowing who she was fighting didn't help to relax her, though. In fact, she suddenly couldn't remember much about watching Esme fight. She had no idea what she might be up against!

She paused in her panic at the mention of getting changed before the fight.

'Get... changed...?' she wondered, looking back over to their host. That sounded... worrisome. Regardless, it was time to get going. Froshana pushed her chair back and rose from the table. She looked over to her opponent again, then started off for the door. This time, she would have to try harder to not hold back...

Twilight tried to contain his laughter as Greg, the host who had been trying sooo hard, flipped his lid at Malware. That didn't take long, really and it looked like the little blue fox won that bet. He stood up straight and stretched... then the announcements came. 

"Oh nooo..." He muttered apathetically. "Looks like I'll have to be the one to rid of us of the annoying braaat..." He was a little bit louder now, calling out only for the sake of taunting Malware- though he really did believe that nothing could beat him at this point. His ego continued to grow, though he began to think that he was tossed an easy opponent... however, he had not watched any of Malware's previous matches. He knew nothing about the kid besides his antics in the lounge. It was no matter. They were practically begging him to win at this point, after all. Isn't that right?

He looked over at Greg as he walked over to the exit of the lounge and smirked. This wouldn't take long at all, nope. He would go in, give the kid what for and come out. Easy! Thinking his game plan was sound, he closed in on the exit- stopping to let Froshana leave first. 

This fight was going to be a joke.

With a dramatic sigh, the Hyena fished around in her pockets, and withdrew the promised money! She was originally planning on argueing that Greg had raised his voice, but ultimately she decided it just wasn't worth her time. It'd be easier to give the kid his money than throw a childish fit.

Still! She had the name of her opponent, and she briefly allowed her gaze to flicker over to Froshana... before losing interest, and skipping over to Greg. He'd lost her a bet, buuuut she was willing to forgive that. And he seemed ooooh soooo stressed...

Upon reaching him, she leant forward and suddenly kissed his nose! 'Hey, Hot Shot. Fancy going out for a drink after this round is done? With all the chaos that's goin' on, I figured you might need one~'

she would wait long enough to get his answer, before skipping off. If he agreed, she looked absolutely delighted, and kissed his nose again. If he declined, she shrugged her shoulders lightly, her grinning dipping slightly, before saying 'maybe next time then?' before turning and skipping off to catch her ride.

Honk!
She didn't look pleased. In fact, one could say she looked just about done with this guy. She was trying to relax before the fight, and here comes Mr Troll to get everyone back on edge again. Envy was gone, but this? This was just... irritatingly obnoxious. With a 'hmff', she turned her head slowly around to face both Esme and Boubka again.

And as she opened her mouth to reply to the hyena, the TV exploded. Just... just outright exploded. And it was so sudden that her feathers bristled and she jumped in her seat, eyes wide and, well, not exactly furious, but amazed that Malware could be this childish. It was almost offensive that he was in this tournament to begin with. Poor Zephyr received the worst of it, and she bit her lip, or uh, beak, in hopes that he'd be alright for the tournament. Hand to forehead, the griffon just sighed.

BEEP BEEP BEEP!

Oh! Nevermind! Her body surged to alert, and she hopped upwards, standing up, with a grin. The next round. Only four. Then two. And then the victor that would go hope with the fame and fortune. No more time for games, now they're all playing in the big league. Her tail curled in anticipation as the names were called out.
Zephyr.
Oh.
Oh.
This was, admittedly, the one person she was hesitant on fighting, purely because he was so... similar to her. And because he was so similar, she had trouble deciding on, well, tactics. Ways to get around it. Ways to deal with him. Ways to plan. For a moment, but a moment, her grin twitched to a frown, and her tail twitched. This was going to be... interesting, to say the least, and the hybrid's head turned towards the exit, where he had left. Should she... go after him? See if he's okay for the match? No, that'd be dumb. It'd hurt his pride. Could be insulting. The last thing she wanted to do was make an enemy seconds before the match.

"WELL!" she exclaimed, clasping her hands together as she turned to face the rest, "Good luck to you all, darlings~! I hope to see only the best to join me at the semi-finals! Ohohoho~!"

Sora clearly saw the sheer focus that was put onto Malware. Okay, so it was DEFINITELY him. It had to be. With all of the drama kicking off around him, she made that conclusion pretty quickly. She was about to walk up and teach him some manners herself for making her make a total fool out of herself a few moments ago as a result of the explosion, but she was beaten to the chase by Greg. "..." She grumbled, biting her lip, before rolling her eyes and turning tail, simply pinching the bridge of her nose.

At least Greg was going to give him an earfu-Oh nevermind. Apparently the names were already called out. Sora didn't really care all too much. She wasn't fighting after all, so why bother? She sighed at that realization hitting her again like a ton of bricks, but at least had the decency to give a thumbs up to Maxie and some others. "Good luck out there, and give 'em a show." She then flopped back down onto the sofa, and rested her hands behind her head, staring up at the ceiling above her.

Malware had fallen over, clutching his sides as he became plagued by a fit of hysterical laughter from his action. He thought that what he did was just so awesome and so funny. Malware pointed at the broken TV that he caused to explode before holding his face and pretending to be hurt. He was obviously mocking Zephyr. "Ow! Ow! Ow," Malware mocked before reverting back to a fit of laughter.

The masked hacker got to his knees and was met with the sight of an enraged Greg. Malware widened his eyes and looked around, as if to look for an escape route or an ally. Malware usually wasn't confronted about his behavior, so this was one of the rare times he was. As the zebra talked, the masked DJ could do nothing but listen. When it came down to it, Malware was nothing more than an annoying, arrogant brat who felt powerful under a mask, behind a computer screen, or when commanding his DJing equipment. Malware's ego was bruised, and that was obvious due to his tensing up to Handsome Greg.

[i]You and your sponsors have been against me throughout this entire tournament,[/i] thought Malware. [i]The lot of you are conspiring against me! [/i]Malware's way of thinking made him believe that he was the center of the universe. Anything that he believed was unfair to him should be meant with extreme prejudice. When the alarm sounded, Malware got up and pointed at Greg before making a thumbs down gesture, marking Greg as his next target in the near future. The masked black-hat hacker then skipped away so that he could prepare for his match. [i]Stupid Greg and his stupid sponsors! I bet this arena will be lousy and work against me, too, [/i]thought Malware before he left the lounge.

Boubka sighed out of defeat. It seemed like Greg had raised his voice against the hacker dude. Boubka reached in his pockets for some coins, but before he could say anything to Esme to congratulate her with her new earned money, A beep went.

Boubka raised his head and quickly glanced to one of the monitors, because last time, he could immediately see his name on the screen. Unfortunately, that one monitor was destroyed, so then he just decided to glance at Greg and hear him out.

So it was Amber. Boubka looked around to see if she was here. She however, was not present here. Bou kept looking around while others were already leaving. After some time he just stood up, deciding he could better just move on. Then he suddenly got money on his lap. But she won? He was going to give it back to her. She won this one. But Esme was already on her way, so he decided to give her the money later. A quick wave at Sora.

He heard Esme talking to Greg about going out for a drink. Boubka also passed Greg. Without even looking at him he said: "Guess who's going to pay for that one..." He looked at Esme and Maxie. "I'm expecting you not to lose this one guys." He opened the door to the helicopter. A quick glance at Twilight. "You too! Kick that monitor destroying fox' butt!" Then he jumped into the chopper.

After god knows how long staring up at the ceiling, Sora ended up having her ears twitch slightly at the sound of - well - something happening. She glanced to the monitors, taking them in. She had no reason to, but... damn, she was curious what she would be fighting in if she got thr-

A pool.

Okay, thank the gods that Froshana beat her then. Her gloves would probably shortcircuit if they made contact with water and - uh - Sora herself wasn't exactly the most competent at swimming. At all. Her gaze was fixed on that monitor for a moment, waiting for things to kick off, before almost getting a nosebleed when she was Froshana again, quickly diverting her gaze to another monitor.

("That's enough of that.") She winced, cursing to herself.

And Froshana was relatively jealous, to say the least. The shopping mall. That looked... fun actually. She'd never had a chance to go into such a high class one before - and she wished she could've gotten into THAT one. It'd be both awesome to look around and awesome to fight in. Toppling shelves was easy enough. Regardless, the two competitors seemed to - REALLY respect each other...? Somewhat. They weren't taking it super serious it seemed, then again, it was hard to tell when either of them were save for Maxie in the fight with Envy.

Sora then glanced to the last two monitor that had things actually happening thus far. One of them was underground. ...Okay, it was dark as hell. Not much to see there other than-HOLY WHAT THE HELL TWILIGHT?! Her jaw dropped slightly, though she tried not to let it show too much, before quickly diverting her gaze again to the other monitor. It was pretty obvious to her Twilight had to win that one. And finally, huh, a...

Oh. A cruise.

...Joy. A gigantic deathtrap surrounding the whole ship and miniature versions of such in the middle. Sure there were luxuries here and there but she felt like she could throw up just by looking at it. So she simply diverted her gaze back to the one fight that she could watch, Maxie and Zephyr...

Greg, admittedly, did find himself with some cause to worry. Just as he had taken exception to Malware's antics, so too had Malware taken exception in return, giving Greg a thumbs down - the universal sign of disapproval. Still, if this guy did give him any trouble... well Greg did kinda want an excuse to punch him in the face.
Loosening his jacket slightly to cool off, he paused at the sight of Esme approaching. Well... that was a sight to help him calm a little.
"Hey, Hot Shot," she spoke up first, "Fancy going out for a drink after this round is done? With all the chaos that's goin' on, I figured you might need one~"
"O-o-oh..." he stuttered slightly in response, "I, uh, I'm technically not... well... allowed to... Legal stuff about active competitors and seeming bias and- I mean..." he gave an awkward grin, "Though, er, can always go for one after the tournament!"
"Guess who's going to pay for that one..." Boubka remarked in passing. Well. Hm.

Soon enough, the contestants had all filtered out, leaving behind the few who had simply arrived for social moments. Well, considering what he'd been told about the different fights... he knew which screen he was watching.

And so it was, that after a significant amount of time, the fights had thusly begun to wrap up! It was shaping up now who the semi-finalists would be. Four individuals all just two steps away from ultimate victory. And of course, Greg took to his feet with the announcement...
"Ladies and gentlemen! Thank you for your attendance! The third day of the Tremendous Tribulations Tournament has officially come to it's close - however, as usual, the Lounge shall be open for the remainder of the night! Tomorrow will be a day of recovery, however the day after that... we will be determining our finalists! Hope everyone's ready - we're almost there!"

And so it was, after a little more time had passed after the already significant amount that had already done so, that Esme returned to the Lounge. And, perhaps for once in her life, seemed... quiet. Not the usual type where she just seemed to be soaking in the world around her, but that odd thoughtful kind - and for once, her normally expressive face was almost neautral in it's appearance. Perhaps unaturally so.

Indeed, her entire attitude seemed to have... almost wound down a notch, like a mechanical soldier running out of energy. She pauses for a moment just past the doorway, before striding over to one of the sofa's, and roughly sitting down in it. A moment passes, followed by a second, then a third. Indeed, a forth begins to dawn before her head snaps up, and settles on the monitors in front of her, and she begins to watch back the other matches. Indeed, she does so with such a somber, serious gaze you could almost believe she was attending a funeral - and perhaps, for her, she was. After all, whilst she had not expected to go all the way through this tournement, she had at least hoped to reach the semi-final. Despite any brave words about not minding Froshana taking her out, she still seemed... deflated by the whole thing.

But then, that is the curse of pride, I suppose.
