Colton had sat on the edge of his cot, his hands intertwined with one another and his eyes closed. There was not much need to move, he had not been told to. If a Silver needed baby-sitting or a yellow needed to be protected, then they would come and use their mouths to tell him to move and he would do it. Time off was not something he was particularly used to, nor was being so...inactive.

Some would label it as freeing, others would say it was choking. Colt knew where he stood. He stood, toeing both sides, watching as the ball bounced back and forth - forever waiting for it to stop and land on a particular side. One one hand, he was an addict - an addict of adrenaline, of blood and of everything that people thought Obsidians were but one another? That was it, he wouldn't know what he was outside of this life and yet, he knew life was not supposed to be...this contained.

And, thus he sat with his eyes laser-focused on the ground just in front of him. His brow was heavy as he grunted, pushing himself upwards after a couple of moments before heading down the corridor. The base was large enough to host the Obsidian hoards and contained enough equipment to keep them happy if they should go to war once more. There was no physical battle. just the mental ones. Colton walked along the corridor, rubbing at his eyes before turning into the sparring ring.

It was quiet bar from a couple of Obsidians who had the same idea. They had turned to acknowledge Colt, before quickly returning to the sparring match at hand. They knew that Colt arriving would only mean that he wanted in on the piece of action, there was no 'Do you want to go next?' or 'How about after this round?'. Colt settled himself against the nearby wall, folding his arms across his chest as his eyes remained watching the ring.

his alarm was blaring as he reached over and attempted to hit the snooze button. however, he knew better than to continue to lay down in bed. he would have fallen right back to sleep, eros sighed as he got himself out of bed, he really didn't want too, he wanted to actually sleep in for once. he couldn't though, he wanted to get better at fighting, he wanted to prove his worth, he was going to be the best of the best and that was one of the reasons why he was up so early. as he began to get ready, he noticed that the apartment was oddly quiet. had athena already headed out? her door was closed and he wasn't really in the mood to go in and bother her so instead he grabbed a protein shake and headed out.

it wasn't long until he had arrived at the military base, he was already ready to get going though he knew that he would have to wait his turn if there were others already sparring. the tattooed man made his way down, putting a few bandages on his hands and removing his shirt from his body before allowing himself to get into the ring with the other man.

they hadn't spoken, not that they needed too and began going at it - eros was better with his left so he always tended to lead with his right and then left. few short strokes and then a couple of fast ones, moving in and out so that he woudn't get hit. there were a few points that they had to make, not that the points mattered right now.

eros had ended up noticing that another man was waiting for his turn, he figured whoever got out of this one would be the one that he would go against. eros smirked hitting the other obsidian in the ribs and then a quick hit to the face and he was down - the match was his.

as per usual.

the other obsidian nodded his head, before making his way out of the ring before eros glanced over at the other man. "ready when you are," he said.

"Ready when you are."

Colton had glanced over, his arms still remaining folded across his chest as he took in the figure who remained in the ring. There had been a lot of Obsidians who had come and gone throughout his unexpectedly long life, and he couldn't say that he had seen this one around before.

He grunted in response, allowing his arms to fall to his sides as he pushed himself off with a shoulder and towards the ring, noting the looks that had been sent his way. Colt knew a couple were hedging their bets as they spoke. As he drew closer, he could already make out the height difference between them; his own brain working out the best way to adjust.

He did not remove his shirt, nor bandage up his hands for that matter but had removed his shoes. Colt knew that there was little in the way of protection if he started brawling out on the streets, bandages weren't much protection - fighting out on the streets was a stupid move for any of the Obsidians with their position in the world.

The Obsidian had his target, he had his mission and even though it was sparring, it was the closest shit he was going to get to a fight for a while - at least until they were deployed to another world. He climbed over the ropes, standing in the ring barefoot.

His eyes did not waiver from the other Obsidian, though taking the entire body in. He could already feel the tension creeping into his shoulders as he anticipated the fight to come.

he had never seen the other man before, but he wasn't going to judge - eros had never judged a man that came into the ring (if he hadn't fought him of course). so now they were going to be on even ground, it had taken a moment for the man to come into the arena - it wasn't like he had counted down the minutes or anything.

eros had moved one of his bandages on his hand a bit tighter around his left and then he glanced over to see that he hadn't removed his shirt, but he had removed his shoes. weird, but he wasn't going to judge. judging meant that he would get lost in something and he couldn't do that. he need to focus on the fight at hand.

he breathed in and out for a moment, tilting his head side to side and cracking his neck as he did so. breathing in and out as he watched him enter the ring, he was ready, he was on it and he would make sure that it got done. it wasn't an actual match and he knew that it didn't matter who won in all reality.

though let's be completey honest, eros wanted to win and he would do his damnest when it came to winning.

he moved himself closer to the other, throwing out his left hook and seeing if it landed. as he made sure that he kept his ribs and face covered by his right for the moment.

Colton watched as the space between him and the other Obsidian closed, his eyes watching the man's face and then keeping an eye out for the rest of the man's body movement. He had been bred as a Spec Ops soldier, to perform reconnaissance tasks, watching and observing had come almost second nature to fighting.

He did not care much for the background, the fact was he was faced with an opponent and the goal was simple.

Defeat his opponent.

Colt did not see his height as his disadvantage, he was bred for bloodshed, bred for warfare and all its rewards. His eyes had narrowed a fraction of a second before he caught sight of the left arm coming in from his peripheral. There were options: duck, block, attack and counter-attack. All viable options in this scenario but he needed to pick one.

Arm reach.

He could play to his advantage.

But, he wanted to see what the other could do. He wanted to see how much of a challenge the other Obsidian posed. Colton had quickly raised his right arm in defense, to block the oncoming attack and jabbed with his left.

one on one was one of the easiest things for eros considering that he was used to multiple opponents and someone having a weapon. what the two of them were doing right now was simple, they were just fighting and testing out the waters before going full throttle.

eros was up for the challenge, he wanted to play, he wanted to fight and the other man seemed as though he would enjoy it too.

the other man was quite a bit taller, but it hadn't mattered - when you were trained obsidian you were trained to take out anything and everything. you could and would make things work and if you didn't...well you'd be dead or on the side of the street somewhere.

when the other jabbed with his left, he brought his arm up and he blocked it - smirking lightly. finally someone that was worth a fight, not that the other obsidian (that he had fought earlier) wasn't a challenge, it was just that eros had already fought him before.

as he leaned back for a moment, he made sure that he was blocking and protecting - they were sparring, meaning that there as really no right or wrong way to do this. eros threw another punch, right - then left, before moving his hands to block his face.

He had caught sight of the smirk, the fact that the other had managed to block it. It was no surprise. They were born for fighting, born for being 'better' than the rest of the colours with their enhanced speed and strength.

It seemed the other had struck out once more, catching him off-guard with the incoming left - bandaged fist striking at his cheek, snapping his head to one side. Colt grunted but had quickly recovered, taking moment to notice the other had blocked his face; he feinted with his right, aimed solidly towards the other Obsidian's face whilst also going low with his left.

The line between sparring and full-on fighting had certainly been a tough line to toe, especially so near to when many Obsidians 'expired.' Fighting had taken the forefront as sparring had taken a metaphorical half a step back.

they were born to fight, they were born to kick ass and that was one of the reasons why eros had tried so much. he had wanted to do what was best for him and fighting this other obsidian meant that he could practice on someone that he hadn't do it to before. he knew that he was pretty damn good, but he wanted to be the best and he was going to get there ...

eventually.

it was only when he hit the other man that he could say that he was somewhat proud of himself, though it wasn't long until he had blocked one hit and then didn't realize the low one on that left. it had hit him, not as hard as an enemy, but hard enough.

as eros watched, he tried to see if he could figure out what his next move was. he wasn't anything like athena, but eros would be able to figure something out. he hit with his left, then with his right, making a few hits quicker then he had first done. he was enjoying this - he enjoyed the fight. tag: COLTON METZGER

The only thing holding him back was the fact that it was sparring, not killing. And, Obsidians had enough of a hard time without any such medical benefits that even the Greys received.

He was certainly an older, if not one of the oldest Obsidians around the base. That was enough to be proud of, but a fact he would keep to his chest. Colt had begun getting into the flow of the fight, a dance - if one was more poetic in their word choices to which Colt was anything but.

The punches kept coming; right, left, right. Colt noticed the slight chance in pace, the speed in which they came at him. The taller Obsidian moved, weaved ducked before being caught out with a left jab, stumbling him backwards. Though this would usually be a point of disadvantage for many, Colton had learned to operate with his height - using it where it was an advantage.

Being further back allowed him to attempt a side-kick, aiming for the other's center of mass. Momentum was his friend here, and so was his mass. Should he come in contact, the tables would have flipped.

he wasn't in killing mode, right now he was in sparring - eros had always been the type that was willing to kick ass no matter what mode he was in. though he was enjoying this time, he was enjoying the spar because it kept his mind busy.

the age of the other man hadn't really bothered him in the first place, eros was obsidian thru and thru. he wanted to keep it up, he wanted to keep going, he wanted to keep up the fighting and see what he could earn.

they were fighting, though he had caught him off guard - majority of his mass had come at him and the center of him had he had been knocked back. it kind of hurt, he could feel his ribs for a moment and he knew that it would be a bruise. not that it mattered to begin with, he knew that he was going to be bruised after this.

his breathing was a bit labored, as he hunched over, but eros had sent an uppercut attempting to hit the other in the jaw.

Colton had observed, his muscles a knot of tension as he anticipated the other's next move. Be it that there was really only one move that could be made from the position that the other Obsidian was in.

If his height had not been a benefit in this scenario, there was not much else going for the older Obsidian. The other was around the top end of five foot; five foot nine? Ten? Throwing the uppercut, most of the momentum was built from the initial thrust upwards, the extension of the arm but as time passed, most of the power would have been lost fighting against gravity; even with the enhanced capabilities bred into their genetics.

The uppercut had connected with the underside of his chin, and though it was a direct hit and a little more than a light punch, it was enough to start the chain of events that had his adrenaline pumping. His head lolled to one side, his arm swinging wide as he suddenly changed direction.

His fist flew back towards Eros' head, his mass being guided by momentum gained as his arm swung freely through the air, his fist sideways on.

it was the fight itself that made him anxious, it was the fight that made him want to do more - to be better. it was why he was constantly in the arena, it was why he was here right now. he wanted to get more sponsors and that was going to happen, he was going to be the best of the best.

eros was in the mode, he was going to win, he wanted to win.

though there was never any winning to be completely honest, they were being used and abused for the golds entertainment. right now though, they were just doing whatever came to mind first - which was always fighting. it was the only thing that he did really, it was the only thing that he was actually good at doing.

fighting was the thing that made him, it was the thing that made him who he was and whenever he was around he knew that it was going to make things better. as the fight went on, he knew that it may have been in his best interest to get the other on the floor - the height was a bitch, but eros wasn't a failure.

another hit as he inhaled and exhaled, "you're actually better than the others, i'm impressed."

it wasn't him being a dick, he was actually giving a compliment which was rare coming from the obsidian.

Though the sparring had spurred on his adrenaline, Colton was fighting - mostly against himself - not to do some serious damage. He knew that they were both of the similar caliber, that Obsidians had extra benefits that helped them in their line of work and yet, they were still as vulnerable as everyone else.

"You're actually better than the others, I'm impressed."

Colt's eyes narrowed, his gaze hardening for a moment as he grunted. Praise or compliments for him were never natural, they were something that always carried something else when someone praised another - at least that was what he had observed from what the higher colours did. They praised, then they asked for something ten-fold.

"Don't be." He replied, bluntly. His voice was gruff, yet carried very little hint that he was tired from their sparring match.

Maybe it was because he was used to the bloodshed, the battle and the maneuvers they did behind enemy lines - scouting for those weak lines in the defensive position before they relayed it. It was what they did, and only with experience came the ability to fight.

Colt blocked the hit, though had taken more of a defensive posture - wanting to see how the other reacted.

the way of the obsidians was to be better, to not be killed and to get whatever needed to be done - done before you were on the floor in a hundred pieces. there was then the other fact that if you got fucked up too much, that they wouldn't fix you - you were just a number and that meant that you meant nothing.

so sparring with this other guy meant that he was getting better, he would do better because that was the point of sparring. you got what you could, you did what you could to be the best of the best and then some.

eros smirked and nodded, the other was quite different and he was used to that. he was used to the silence, the gruffness that came along with it, he was just not used to someone being as good as he was.

the other was on the defense, which meant that if he went on the offense that he should be able to get a few hits in right? though eros wasn't one hundred percent sure, every fighter was different.

instead he went for two jabs to the ribs, seeing if that could help him with the difference in the height advantage. he wanted to do well, he didn't want to "beat" him per say, but he just wanted to be the better one of the two.
