- We didn’t even reach the building before all hell broke loose. Apparently while we were watching them, they had been watching us. Before we could get around the building, two men jumped out of the trees, axes swinging. I had a holy shit that’s a freaking battle axe moment, but I didn’t actually stop to admire, I was too busy trying to avoid the blades of death.
- Tim wasted no time inserting his body in the path between one of the attackers and myself. Usually I’d gripe over someone getting in the way, but in this case, I decided his broad sword outmatched my dagger against one of the metal axes trying to take a bite out of our flesh.
- In a move that would have brought tears of pride to my eyes if I’d been standing back watching, he ducked and knocked the guy back just enough to make him pause with his onslaught. Never being one to stand on the side lines, I ducked under Tim’s arm as he blocked a second swing and inserted the blade of my tonfa right into the guy’s thigh. With a howl, he dropped the axe to the ground and grabbed hold of his leg. Two points for our team.
