The tall man spoke in a very deep, hate filled voice, "I finally found you. You will pay
what you did to me. Do you have any idea of the humiliation I suffered because of you?
My reputation was completely destroyed! Beaten by the likes of you! You made me a disgrace
to my country and Muay Thai. I will destroy you, Ryu." The tall man looked down on Ryu, who was
still in a fighting stance. The wind ruffled his black hair and made his red headband flail
wildly around him. As he took a step back, his karate gi seemed to cling to his body for a
moment, then released.
Ryu frowned. "Don't blame me for your inability to fight, Sagat. Your loss of face was your own
fault." Sagat narrowed his eyes, his fists clenched, and he bared his teeth. His whole body seemed
to tense up as he said, "You....dare! The only reason you won that match was because of that
annoying little Dragon Punch, the technique that put this scar on my chest! I carry it forever as
a mark of shame! Until I kill you, I can no longer be called a man!" With that, Sagat crouched into
a fighting stance.
Ryu tensed, not recognizing Sagat's stance. Both of his arms were held in front of his scarred chest,
palms facing each other, and his legs were planted firmly on the ground. Ryu's eyes opened wide in
shock when flickers of orange electricity started to dance across Sagat's body, focusing between his hands
in a glowing ball of orange energy. Sagat grinned evilly and said, "Now you will die, Ryu! TIGER!" As he
shouted the last word, Sagat threw his hands forward, fists outward, towards Ryu. The orange ball of energy streaked
towards Ryu with lightning speed. Ryu jumped sideways, evading the attack, but burning his left leg.
As he fell to the ground, he saw that his pant leg was on fire. He rolled around smothering the flames.
Sagat was laughing maniacally during all of this, and laughed harder still as Ryu got up and stumbled.
His left leg was burned badly and he couldn't put any weight on it. Sagat calmly walked over to Ryu and
smiled. Without warning, he threw a viscious punch at Ryu's head. It connected, and as Ryu was spinning from
the impact, he outstretched his leg and caught Sagat in the head with a hook kick. Sagat fell, and spat out the
blood that was in his mouth. He slowly got up, and prepared for his next attack.
Sagat's remaining eye opened wide as he saw blue energy emanating from Ryu's body. Ryu pulled his arms back so his
hands were at his side. The blue energy concentrated between his palms, and he said, "Sagat, you are still a poor
fighter." Sagat started running towards Ryu, screaming at the top of his lungs. Ryu thrust his arms toward sagat.
"HADOUKEN!!" He shouted, sending the sphere of blue energy careening at Sagat.
Sagat awoke a few days later, lying in a hospital bed with second degree burns.
