Beautiful greens sprouted along worn trails used by animals of all sizes, small scampering creatures making the ferns rustle with approaches, larger animals waking from their nights slumber as the nocturnal creatures huddled together in dens to rest for the days rays. Trees of ancient sizes stood tall, their canopies shading the land below with a soft green light as the sun made its way over the horizon, intent of monopolizing the sky once more. A river flowed trickling over rocks and ferns, reeds and swirling eddies, through the forest, along the paths used by the animals of this wood. Tracks were visible, in the muds and clays of the riverbank, watering hole to all the creatures of the forest. Hunting was always good in this wood, and yet the prize was always the bucks that led the huge herds of does through each turn of the season...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Looking up at the rising sun, she set the belt down in the grass and decided that she didn't feel like hunting today. Today was a grazing day. Shifting smoothly to her Ram form-- deep brown fur shaggy about the shoulders and down her chest, small cloven feet digging at the ground, great sized horns coming from her head, swirling back and around her jawline, a thick sturdy buck form-- she wandered close by her belts and kris, grazing off the green shoots still wet with the dew of the morning. The sun sparkled off the waters edge, the river trickling past rocks and reeds, calling her to drink. The birds were singing their songs as if nothing in the world could stop them, and she felt at peace.

Nuncia let the instinct of the ram lead her around, following trails around the river to berry bushes and greener shoots, all the while keeping an ear out for anything out of the ordinary on its way closer. It wasn't a dense forest, but there were old trees that had fallen and newer ones sprouting up from the fallen giants, a forest of change. It reminded her of her home realm, and yet there was a subtle thing missing that her realm had that this did not-- her tribe. The brand of the flame stood stark on her right shoulder flank, a constant reminder of her banishment to these strange lands, and the even stranger creatures that inhabited it.

Her ears picked up the sounds of rutting bucks and clashing blows from the wild herds of the wood, and she smiled inwardly. Good, I wont be bothered by strutting does this day she thought to herself as she steered clear of the mating grounds, intent on not getting herself into a scuff with a true buck. She stayed near to the river, hoping to avoid the bucks and does, and concentrate on her scavenging for sprouts.

The drifter's stomach rumbled again. He was absolutely starving right now he felt. One of the biggest inconveniences of having no money was the complete lack of food buying ability. He had been much worse before but he still imagined he could touch his spine from the front of his stomach right now.

He had been sitting in a tree above the river for a few hours now. He had valiantly failed at fishing earlier in the day. A bear had stolen his only two fish and that had been after two hours of effort. He had only looked away for a minute or two and a bear cub had walked up and taken the fish from the stone they were lying on, just waiting to be filleted. Now Wanting to piss off mama bear, where ever she was hiding in the woods, the drifter had just taken his staff and climbed up a near by tree.

Now he was just waiting for something to walk by so he could club it to death and turn it into a some steaks. And his wait was not in vain. A very decently sized ram just so happened to wander just below the branch he was sitting upon. Waiting until it stopped or slowed down, the drifter slowly shifted on his branch to get a better angle on it. With it's head down to graze, the kill would be swift and merciful.

Shifting his position one last time, the drifter slid off the branch and said a silent prayer for the ram's forgiveness for what he was about to do. The branch was only a few yards from the ground and there were no branches in his way that would impede his descent. Holding his staff like a bat with both hands above his head, the drifter lined up his kill shot. At just the right moment, he swung his staff down as hard as he could. [Ooops, did you need that bone is one piece?] His target was striking the base of the ram's skull with the last half foot of the staff, hopefully killing it in one blow or stunning it long enough for the drifter to do the dirty work. His staff would strike the ram just before his landed to make sure it would have all the force it could get.

Lowering her head to graze along the river, she nibbled a bit, keeping a sharp ear out for any change in the world around her. It was never good to be caught unawares by a stranger happening by a nice Ram like herself, but at the same time it was never good to be eaten by a bear either, and one had been by recently. As well as a human. The area smelt of him. She figured the bear must have scared him off somewhere, which was all good for her. She didn't feel like dealing with strangers today. Today was a her day, she had decided. The bird song continued until a slight shift scared them out of the trees by the river, making her stall in her grazing.

Her ear swiveled at the shift in the trees, noting the birds silence. She moved quickly towards the river in a rush, spinning around with her front hoof dug into the ground to pivot on, and saw the man hit the ground with a staff that was meant for her head. She lowered her head snorting and pawing like a bull, making a Dash [dashing ram] mildly faster than a normal rams rush towards him, hoping to get him in the guts-- or lower, like the hips-- with her thick horns. She didn't know how he had gotten up in that tree, nor why he was attacking her, but she did know one thing; he was asking for it. She had been doing nothing but grazing, eating till she was full, and this man, human by the scent and look of him, was interfering with that.


If she missed than she would end up running into the tree, but if she hit, needless to say with her height little over a meter high at this point in time, it would hurt a lot for a man to be hit.

A swing and a miss.

With a very solid thunk, the tip of the drifter's staff buried itself into the soft soil. His swing had missed by only a second, if even that. Dinner had noticed him and wasn't too happy about what he had just tried. After it had leaped out of the way to avoid the drifter's staff, it had turned around and came straight back to show how displeased it was. With a coiling of muscle, it lunged at him, head down and the large curled horns extended. If he just stood there, the drifter was going to have one hell of a bruise to show what fast food could do to your body. And he still wanted to make some lamb chops, so he wasn't going to let it get away.

The drifter was close enough to the tree to plant himself against and he had a vague idea. He had seen some one hunt a lion before and what he was about to do was vaguely based on that theory. The drifter pulled his body upright and brought his staff back while the ram was finishing it's turn. His right hand was only a few inches from one end and his left hand was about half way up the staff. As the ram started it's dash toward him, he started shifting his weight back a bit. When he decided the ram was close enough, he put his plan into action. [Dr. Speed or: How I Learned to Stop Hitting So Hard and Move Faster] The drifter's stance crumpled backwards in a controlled fashion and his right knee landed on the ground next to where the roots came out of the ground and formed the trunk. The drifter placed the base of the staff into a fork in the roots and held it tight against that spot. At the same time, he dropped the other end of his staff lower as well, lining up the tip of the staff with the top of the ram's breast plate and the base of it's neck. [Wasn't Aiming for the Target, was Aiming for the Flies Around the Target]

At this point, there wasn't much more that he could do except for steel his body for the impact. [Ooops, did you need that bone is one piece?] Hopefully, the staff would be able to pierce through the ram and rip through it's heart, giving it a slightly less merciful kill that before but now it was a fight for his life as well. The biggest downside to his plan is that his weapon was quite blunt and it wasn't guaranteed to pierce through anything like the lion hunter's spear had been able to. If the drifter's staff struck a solid enough object and didn't pierce anything, he would just try and push his staff to a side to keep the force from all coming at him.

She raised her head just enough to check if the man was still there, and noted he was moving, so her dash slowed a little to compensate for the new directions she would have to make. She was wondering what this man was trying to accomplish as he moved his staff into roots and such, and as she continued her run, she knew now what he was aiming for-- a blunt strike to her chest, a kill shot at her speed. She smiled inwardly as her mind made a quick few adjustments to her plan and implemented them. Taking advantage of this man's new stance would be beneficial to say the least.

Her dash had not been fast enough it seemed, but she could make up for that. She lowered her head more, calculating the basic angles, and her horns, and as she came up on the staff, she threw her head to the side, knocking it to graze along her flank, continuing her head dash to the man now crouched by the tree.

Whatever this man thinks of this battle, he is sorely underestimating my skill she thought as she ran along the length of the staff, aiming for the mans now lowered chest. She was a lot smarter than your average ram, and it showed with that maneuver. She was a force to be reckoned with when you interrupt feeding time. Hunting was the one thing she held true to herself, and he interrupted it, even if her hunting this time had been grazing. She knew she should have wandered around as a panda, but that can't be remedied at this time.

If her hit was true, than he would not only get a rams horns to the chest, but also get pinned to a tree, which would hurt a bit more so than just a ram hit by her horns...

Well, what happened wasn't quite what the drifter had expected. The ram had managed to flick the edge of the staff in a way that the drifter hadn't thought possible. In the space of less than a second, the game had changed completely. If he stood his ground, he was going to have to deal with a crushed chest and an angry ram. Just one of those seemed bad enough right now, let alone both. So when the ram knocked the staff away, the drifter didn't even fight it. His only goal now was to get out of the way and his staff was useless as distances this close any way. So he just let it go and got the hell out of Dodge.

Rolling his weight back across his right foot, the drifter kicked against the dirt with both feet. But he wasn't quite quick enough to completely get away. His feet were the last part of him to follow through and the ram's horns caught him square across his left shin. It turned what would have been a graceful escape into a clumsy spin into the dirt. The blow to his shin had been enough to turn him sideways before he hit the ground. His landed on his right side and flopped over a single time after he bounced off the ground.

"Oof..."

The breath that the drifter had been unknowingly holding burst out of him when he hit the ground. The impact hadn't really hurt at all, it had just been unexpected. The armor he wore under his shirt had absorbed a lot of the impact and it hadn't been that much to start. But his shin was throbbing. So far, it didn't feel broken but his leg was going to have a hell of a bruise at the very minimum. Looking up to keep an eye on the ram, the drifter slowly got to his feet. He didn't put any more weight on his left leg than he had to as he slouched into a defensive stance. He couldn't turn and hope to out run the ram and it was really hard to hold a civil conversation with an animal.

She felt the satisfying hit of something leg like off her horn as the surprised man had tried to dodge her dash, obviously not quite as well as he had hoped, but at least he was still breathing. However the satisfaction was cut short a little by the whack and jarring of her skull as her dash continued into the trunk of the tree, shaking leaves loose from the canopy above. She took a few steps backwards, giving her head a shake, the blow not as damaging as it would have been if she was in her true form, but that didn't mean it still didn't send her brain for an all-stop through the windshield.

Taking a few seconds to shake her head again, she faced the man, noticing with a smile inwardly that he was favoring his one leg-- it would be badly bruised if not broken by her hit, so he'd be favoring it the whole time most likely. Good. She shifted into her elven form, her hair falling in its whip down her back as she stood next to his staff, righting herself from her four legged stance to her own feet. She thought for a moment what to do about the man in front of her, and realized that she had no weapon-- her belt and kris weren't far from here, by the riverbank only a few meters away wedged between rocks to stay out of sight, but that was too far to go to grab. She looked to the staff and smiled.

Grabbing it out of the roots with a hard yank and holding it lightly in her hands, she examined it for a moment getting a feel for the hefty weapon. "Its been a long time since I used one of these..." she said as she closed the distance between them, taking a vertical swing aiming for his collar bones on the left side, her upper body strength not much, but with the extra little leap she did, it would be a decent blow. Surprise was her best weapon, and she used it well. This man wouldn't even know what hit him until it was too late.

Teach him to interrupt my feeding time...

hblahablahabhahblalaaha....

The drifter's mind just kinda hit a glitch for a second. His dinner now looked no less tasty but in a completely different way. A very lithe and athletic female body was now standing in front of him. And her clothing was much less than what was acceptable. The exotic dancers his father had previously employed had worn more clothes and left more to the imagination. It threw him for a bit of a loop until he could gain him composure. Thankfully, she hadn't just appeared and thrown a knife at his neck. She instead took some time to yank his staff from where he had stuck it and examine it.

"Its been a long time since I used one of these..."

That's about when the drifter's brain caught up to his circumstances. His first thought was that he had been trying to kill a woman. His second thought was that the previously mentioned woman was trying to kill him now. Which meant he had to try and do some damage control. He might be able to get out this with out having to do anything horrible. He went onto the defensive as soon as the woman leaped into the air. He had to try and stop her and talk her down from her rage.

As she leaped forward, the drifter raced forward as fast as he could, hoping to reach her before her swing. [Dr. Speed or: How I Learned to Stop Hitting So Hard and Move Faster] Even if his plan failed, getting hit by the staff right next to her hands would have a lot less inertia and power behind it. While both her arms were up in the air, he made a grab for them. Since she was in the air, she could only flail her body around, not move it around and dodge him. His hope was to grab her wrist's and hold them above her head, stopping her from attacking and giving him time to explain himself. He hoped his stronger upper body would give him an advantage. [Ooops, did you need that bone is one piece?] And if he missed, he would just try to put her into a bear hug and still try to explain himself. But he really didn't want to assume such a close position to such a vulnerable and exposed woman.

"I'm so sorry about this. I did not know you were a woman. I was just looking for something to eat and a ram would have made such a beautiful rack. Ah... Not that your rack isn't beautiful. Or that I'm looking at it. Ah.... Um..."

The drifter wasn't really used to dealing with women in this manner. Any he had seen this naked before had been harlots or lovers and he had quite a way with words then. But this had completely caught him off guard. His apology ended up just being one giant stammering mess.

She watched the mans face turn from one form of lust to another and inside her she lit the flame to start the blaze. Men. She knew that look from the men in her tribe, and the men in this realm at times, but never had she seen one man lose his eyes completely to her skin. It was both unnerving and at the same time infuriating. She took her leap and aimed it true, but the man moved more swiftly than she thought he could, and managed to grab her wrists in mid air, wrenching her arms a bit as her momentum let her fall to the ground in front of him, his height a bit more so than hers, so he was holding her a toes nail away from the ground.

"I'm so sorry about this. I did not know you were a woman. I was just looking for something to eat and a ram would have made such a beautiful rack. Ah... Not that your rack isn't beautiful. Or that I'm looking at it. Ah.... Um..."

She gave a snort like snarl, flailing. "It matters not if I am woman, man, or child. You hunt me, I kill you. Rack or no rack." Her voice was more than just venomous, and by any means one could tell that this woman was not used to dealing civilly with any creature, especially not if they attacked her first. Her appearance alone would scream wild, and the way she attacks, full frontal with little regard for herself... It only spoke of years of tough situations in which that kind of 'balls-to-the-walls' attitude was needed for survival. And she definitely did not take lightly to being held against her will.

She gave a snarl and flailed more, using her legs to kick out in any fashion that she could, aiming for more vital areas below the belt. Her fury and indignity could not have been made worse by such a well meaning action, if only he hadn't had grabbed her like that. Mind you the other hold would have sent her into a fury like none other, but this was bad enough.

Hell hath no fury like a woman hunted for food.

"It matters not if I am woman, man, or child. You hunt me, I kill you. Rack or no rack."

There was enough poison and malice in the woman's voice to make the drifter feel like he should check to see if his manhood was still intact. He could understand how she might be a little bit miffed at the fact that he was trying to kill and eat her. But he was truly sorry now that he knew that the ram was actually a woman, even if he didn't know how the whole woman-in-a-ram's skin thing worked. And even if she wanted to kill him, he still didn't want to hurt her. He just couldn't bring himself to do it even in self defense. She had none of the same qualms though and she fought dirty.

The woman started flailing wildly with her legs and twisting her body as much as she could to get out of the drifter's grip. His grip was starting to slip and the drifter was ready to just let her go when the side of the woman's knee glanced off a very sensitive part of his anatomy. Both sensitive parts, actually. With a very sharp intake of air, the drifter's eyes got real big and he let go of her wrists just long enough to let her slip to the ground and put the staff closer to his hands. Grabbing the staff with both hands, the drifter stumbled backwards and slid his hands back along the staff until almost the full six feet of the staff was between them. He clamped his hands around the end of the staff and decided not to let go of it again until he was in control.

His body hadn't quite caught up yet to the hit he had suffered. Soon enough though, it would set in and feel it he would. Before that happened, he still wanted to try and calm the woman down. Looking up at her, he focused just on her face. He hadn't meant to stare at her body the first time and this time he wasn't going to. It was really awkward for him to see a woman this way and any stares from him just ticked her off as well. His voice was also starting to falter a bit as he spoke, the pain was going to be setting in pretty soon.

"Really, I'm s-sorry. I just wanted something to e-eat. Besides, a ram with horns t-that large is usually a male. I-I would never want to hurt a w-woman. R-Really, I a-am sorry."

[Naked woman are so distracting.]

She flailed and felt the satisfying contact her knee made, feeling the mans grip slip from her and with that the staff as well. She rolled away heading for the riverbank, just enough to grab her Kris while the man was still doubled over, and rushed back, hoping to catch him while he was still disabled. But something about that didn't seem to tick her pride in a positive way-- shifting to distract men was an honorable thing to do, because there was no trick to it, it was just her. But hitting a man when she had hit him in a dirty way was a little underhanded, even for her. So she waited for him to gather himself a bit more, picking her teeth with the tip of her kris of the grass in her mouth still from the ram feeding.

"Really, I'm s-sorry. I just wanted something to e-eat. Besides, a ram with horns t-that large is usually a male. I-I would never want to hurt a w-woman. R-Really, I a-am sorry."

She snorted, looking at him while she picked her teeth. "Mouflon Rams, the one that I have the form of, both females and males have horns. Males tend to be bigger and thicker, but females can have them as well, especially if there are a deficit in males, and then the female takes on the males role in the herd. Since I don't see any males around that travel with me, I am the alpha here. And to say the ram is the least of your worries is a good assumption." She spat on the ground the last of the grass stuck in her teeth and sighed.

What was with men and not noticing the woman in front of them just changed from a ram to a woman, but are more concerned about the dress? Seriously, if a man appeared to me as a ram and then as a naked man, I'd be more concerned about the shifting....

She was about to give up on the entire notion of understanding these people, but something else ticked her the wrong way about this man; he wasn't in a stance to harm her. Sure he had hunted her, but even from his pleas he had been pointing out the fact that he had only been hunting for food.

That fact aside, he attacked a ram outside of the mating rings, and that would only mean one of three things-- the ram is sick and unworthy of mating; the ram is a foreign one not of the herds around here; or it's not a ram. Even from here she could still hear the mating calls. That was why she had chosen this place to graze, to be away from the rutting bucks, and strutting does. She just wanted to eat. Same as this man. But he had attacked her, and there was no amount of apologizing that could account for, as well as the fact he had not only stared but drooled slightly at her form, and even went so far as to interrupt her strike against him and hold her there. If there was one thing that pissed her off more than a man staring at what wasn't his or anyone's, it was being held against her will.

She readied her stance to attack him if he messed up in his words again. He had ticked her off enough in only the few short moments they had been in the same area, and thus far he had found every tick that she had as well. But he didn't know the extent in which he damaged her pride and dignity by that single movement that cost him breath for a moment. And she would repay him until she got that dignity back-- no matter if he chose to attack or not.

(Every guy can vouch for this post.)

Ever felt a tendrils of living fire enter through your nether regions and just keep growing and moving up through your gut?

That's exactly how the drifter suddenly felt. His body suddenly came out of shock and the pain that should have instantly set in earlier just caught up to him. A wave of fire reached up through his guts and pushed the breath from his lungs. He crumpled forward a bit and his knees got weak. Falling to his left knee, the drifter let out a ragged breath. His eye's scrunched up in pain, not quite closing them though. He let go of his staff with his right hand and steadied it on his right knee.

Taking a handful of seconds to gather himself and try to fight the pain, he just kept an eye on the shape-shifter as she walked away from him and picked up a knife that had been lying a ways away. She didn't seem too aggressive anymore. Probably felt bad about how dirty a move that was. Or at least the drifter hoped she did. Then maybe she would just let him be. Small hope with how pissed at life she seemed, but the drifter might feel that way too if he had to walk around partly exposed all the time. But maybe that was just a lifestyle choice.

"Mouflon Rams, the one that I have the form of, both females and males have horns. Males tend to be bigger and thicker, but females can have them as well, especially if there are a deficit in males, and then the female takes on the males role in the herd. Since I don't see any males around that travel with me, I am the alpha here. And to say the ram is the least of your worries is a good assumption."

Well, the drifter kinda new that. Just kinda, didn't know the specific name or reasons for horn sizes but he did know about both gender's having horns. He would have felt kinda bad about killing a female ram but food was food. Food that talked back was different. Especially when the food is now talking back from a partially clad, female elf. But he didn't say anything about it. He just sat there and waited for her to make the next move while he dealt with the pain in his gut and caught his breath.

She saw the man's face go from pained and shocked to full blown excruciating pain and falling to his knees in front of her. She blinked, staring for a moment, wondering how a quick tap could cause a man to his knees, but that was besides the point. After a few moments he seemed to get at least a little handle on it, and she used that time to walk up to him, stopping just in front of him.

"Its different to have one at your feet, but this is ridiculous. Get up and fight me. Because I don't think you understand me. I am going to kill you. Either as a woman or an animal. So either way, your done. Now at least make this fun for me and fight back, or else I'm just going to hunt you for a while. Now get up!" she said stomping on the ground with her dominant foot, crushing the ferns under it. She was getting irritated by the lack of fun this was, even after he disturbed her first.

She sighed, running her hand through her hair, throwing the whip over her shoulder. "Seriously, get up. It cant hurt that much.." she said thinking; she didn't hit him very hard at all, so she couldn't understand why he was groaning on his knees. Shed been hit a lot harder than that and got up shortly afterward, to at least defend herself. This man was doing nothing.

"Seriously. Get Up!" backing up a step, she shifted to her Panda form, slamming the great paws down in a thud, just inches from his knees. She gave a snarly roar and took a swipe at his chest, hoping to at least intimidate him enough to make a move. She wasn't aiming to cause serious damage, just enough to maybe show him that he was in serious danger and better get up and fight.

This is either going to be me attacking him non stop or him running and me chasing. Either way I don't think hes going to fight me any longer. Though I am curious to see what he will do when a panda has his shoulders and thumps him a good few. Maybe then he'll think less of this thing he has against women and more of preserving his own life for the sake of my own entertainment and revenge. Seriously, who attacks a person, and then apologizes for it and tries to back down? That's absurd, especially when the one you attacked is pissed as hell at you for attacking in the first place!

((I do not in any shape way or form condone her attitudes towards hitting men, nor do i share her oblivious nature to the effects of a hit there. Just saying....))

Well, the fires of Hell were receding from his gut at least.

The drifter had been waiting for the woman do try something again while he was down. Thankfully, she had taken her time, given her diatribe, and let him recover. Albeit, the drifter didn't think she knew exactly why he had fallen. She just didn't really seem all that observant, or maybe she just didn't care enough about other people to know stuff like that. Regardless of the reason, he was still thankful for the time he got to recover. But now he had a larger, if more sedate, problem to deal with.

Watching the woman transform almost made the drifter lose his lunch. That is, if he had actually been able to get any. It was the singularly most revolting and interesting thing he had ever seen. Fur erupted from her nearly hairless flesh, her body proportions all shifted around, and she put on a little weight, to say the least. Her new form was a lot easier for him to look out with out being ashamed of himself, but this form also had claws. The big, sharp, pointy kind. And she wasn't afraid to show them off.

The womanbearthing pounded her paws down in front of him and got the drifter's attention for sure. He scrambled backwards, leaving his staff behind in favor of moving faster and not having the follow up swing open up his chest cavity. He liked his heart, lungs, and appendix where they were, even if one of them was completely useless. The shapeshifter's attack passed through part of the area where the drifter's chest had been. It wouldn't quite have been a killing blow but it still wouldn't have been pleasant.

Standing up, the drifter reached into his left sleeve and pulled out his blackjack. Compared to what he was facing, it seemed pretty inconsequential but he had a plan. Not a good one, not a safe one, and not a harmful one. But it was a plan and he would stick to it. Dropping into something of a fighting stance again, the drifter held the blackjack horizontally in front of his hips and perpendicular to his body. With his left hand, he made a "come and get me" motion.

She took her swipe and had to smile to herself as he scrambled back. At least she had gotten his attention this time. And he seemed recovered from whatever infliction her blow had caused him before, which was good enough for her. Maybe now he would take her seriously. She noted he even seemed more comfortable and not stumbling over his words at this form, not that he had said anything yet, but his overall demeanor had changed when she had shifted. Seemed he was almost thankful she did. Huh. So apparently everyone in this realm has a slight regard for clothing, the cumbersome things. Regardless, she was going to show him how a panda can cure most non-aggressive people and turn them into decent fighters-- that is, if she doesn't kill him by accident.

Giving a little snarl, she watched him pull out a stick it seemed like, black, wrapped in what seemed to be black leather. She snorted. What is he going to do with that? Give me a bop on the nose? Heh, we shall see... She gathered her energy to at least move a little faster than a crawl to begin lumbering towards him. One of the downfalls of this form was that it was terribly slow, but she had weight, and thick skin to make up for that. Her lumbering gait would have been amusing to watch, since very rarely pandas ran, her front legs a little shorter than her back ones so she had her head low as she bounded slowly top him, closing the distance with a bit of time, readying herself to take a little pounce on him, hoping he didn't bother to move too quickly.

As she got closer she lifted her front paws off the ground, aiming to grab his shoulders and slam him to the ground, but her motions were rather slow on the uptake, but would be no more than dropping a few sand bags on the ground for the downfall, and with the extra weight it could make a decent thump if she landed. She gave a slight growl roar as she stood up, her height matching his when she stood. Needless to say she was underestimating the weapon in his hand quite a bit.
