Day 13: WIP Fight / Action scene — Self Defense
Featuring Just Breathe, the start of the Earthen Witch universe
“You can’t stop us all, bitch,” one of the men said. A scar ran horizontally across one side of his face. “There’s over a hundred of us.” he spat.
“More practice for me.” I said. “Come and get me, boys.” I smiled at them, and then bullets began to fly.
My hands snapped up on my wrists, palms out, and the bullets froze in the air. They hung there, as if suspended by strings from the trees around us.
More men joined the fray and more guns fired at us. But my magic was too strong, cocooned around Connor and me. Over a dozen faces looked at us. Some amazed. Some marred by fear. Some blank in contemplation on what to use next to try to take my life.
Old, rusty-looking knives flew next, but those were easier to stop than the bullets. I didn’t know if those knives were iron or not, but I didn’t have time to worry about that.
Shadow howled in warning as he caught the scent of more men approaching us from the opposite direction, pulling my attention away from the men in front of us for an instant.
Scarface tossed something dark into the air at me and I realized, too late, what it was.
On instinct, I flung up an invisible shield, as if I were a Viking in the middle of battle, and the grenade exploded into a mass of immense heat and flame. Most of the men in the front of the group fell back from the shockwave of the blast.
