Street Fighter

It seems I’ve accidentally started a new serial without having it planned out – it might get interesting.

‘I don’t think that’s a good idea, love. Even the smallest bloke who trains here is twice your size.’


‘Look, I’m trying to let you off the hook. Girl like you has no business here.’

‘Don’t I? Don’t pay attention to the suit and the heels – I’m tougher than I look. You should see my scars.’

‘Only woman I’ve allowed in made me seem small. You won’t last a minute.’

‘Again, don’t let the business casual fool you.’

‘Why? How about you join boxercise at the gym around the corner?’

‘I don’t need fitness. I need real survival skills.’

Spiderman Made it Look Easy

100 words about turning into a vigilante

With great power comes great responsibility. How unfortunate that she’s taken this line to heart. She ought to remind herself that superheroes make it look easy because they’re fictional.

No patrolling the streets for a while. She needs to heal.

Not feeling any fear has its drawbacks – if she continues to get her backside kicked, she’s going to wind up dead soon. She needs to become stronger and faster. She needs a martial arts teacher who’ll show her how to Van Damme. Even Spidey had to learn how to use his powers.

She’ll have to learn how to vigilante responsibly.

Fear’d Come in Useful

Another night, another A&E waiting room – better than coming in with injuries so severe she has to be seen right away. Gives her time to think, though. Too much time to consider how she can’t stop herself from getting into situations that’ll lead her here. Tonight, she protected an old man from a pickpocket (not much of an opponent), then a young girl from unwanted attention. Those scumbags gave almost as good as they got.

She hopes they’ll give her the good stuff; pills that’ll stop her wondering what her life might be like if she hadn’t lost all fear.
