Kaelahna kept her stature solid and unmoving, her line of sight lined up perfectly with her gun as she could hear the sand and dirt move and churn as the sand started to settle, being relieved she didn't stay in the dustcloud and that she left her sword behind as a distraction. Her breath was quiet, but increased in speed, adrenaline rushing through her veins as she was still not aware of her opponent's true potential.
As the dust finally laid to rest and the fay appeared in her sights, she kept her gun aimed at him, her finger ready on the trigger, but she held back her fire, smirking as his words flew across the sand and ringed in her ears.
After a second of silence, she responded, attempting to mask her rapid breathing as much as possible, speaking in a somewhat flattery, yet taunting tone.
"Such a laugh... It almost sounds tempting. But I've learned that one who relies mainly on magic can not fight fair. It merely proves that they are cowards, who need additional abilities to save their own, worthless butts. I dislike your kind, and any other magically based kind, including even my own. I am a warrior. If you say you want to fight me like a true warrior. Refrain from your magic and fight me like you have some guts!" Her voice rose as she was speaking, yet her body barely even moved. "Prove to me you have guts. Prove to me you don't need pitiful magic to defeat me. Or get out of my sights!"
At that last line, she pulled the trigger, which resulted in her magical rifle to launch an engraved bullet by magical propulsion, letting it cut through the air at soaring speed. The bullet however, didn't seem to be aimed for the fay's head, as its course dropped slightly, the magic around it pulsing stronger as the bullet neared the elf, before it exploded into a viscious and blinding flash right in front of the fay.
As the bullet was fired, Kaelahna kept her gaze down to not be blinded by her own shot, her gun reforming to its compact size, wherafter she slung it onto her belt once more, rushing across the sandy surface to grasp her mace and blade once more, dropping back into a kneeled position, bringing her weapons up in a defensive manner, crossing them in front of her as she turned to face the fay to assess what damage her shot did.
She would not give him a chance to retaliate however, as she would charge forward again if the shot would have succesfully incapacitated the fay for just a few seconds. Running as fast as she can without slipping across the loose sand, she leapt up to gaze down at the fay, before flying down towards him, moving her body in a counter clockwise spinning motion, attempting to hit him with her mace at first to break his guard, before following up with a rapid slash from her blade to try and abuse the opening her first attack would have made if it struck.
