Evvie had felt a sharp pinch in her tail as the machine passed her by, but she had thought nothing of it until she turned around to begin her run. With heels digging into the snow she skidded to a stop not a moment too soon. Squirming just at her feet was roughly four inches of her tail in a small pool of blood, although quite a lesser amount then one would assume from a lost appendage. She bent down to poke it, having a "oh no you didn't" look on her face the entire time. The tip of her tail that still remained attached to her body constricted and began the healing process in order to stop the trickle of blood. She could reattach the tail by pressing the ends together, but there was no way she could waste that much time in the middle of a fight. She'd probably just have to regrow it the old fashioned way. Luckily for her the tail was the easiest part of her body to regenerate, but she certainly wouldn't get much use out of it for this battle. Leaving the removed portion to continue squirming in the snow, she got back up onto her feet in order to better prepare for another attack.
Her body language showed that she was more weary of another confrontation now, having been hit with every exchange that had been made. Sure, her body was very resilient, her wounds were already in the process of healing, and she had sustained no serious damage, but even she could see things were not going well for her. She'd never fought this tough of an enemy before, so she had been accustomed to demolishing any opponent that she had come up against with the already used tactics. Now what? She wasn't about to admit defeat, considering herself to be an awesome fighter who could pull off a victory against anyone if she kept trying. She realized that she was narrow mindedly focusing on her opponent yet again, so she broadened her senses to see that her new friend was making an effort to get a shot off all this time. She didn't want to think it was her fault, but she could use the help. Leaping away and to the side of the machine, she gave the woman a better shot.
