Punch.

Punch.

Low kick.

Stab with the stake hand.

Spin away and reassess.

She's still not entirely sure of their numbers, but she senses at least five of them. Or at least there were five to start with, she thinks as the dust from one of them slowly settles to the cavern floor.

They don't wait for her to think carefully and logically about the situation, but attack her. One's arm swings wildly at her head. She falls to the ground in a controlled spin, and her legs sweep round and take his feet out from under him. A brief flash of light from the torches show her the surprise on his heavily gnarled and misshapen face as he falls.

Before she can finish him off, a vicious kick from one of the other's cloven feet hits her ribs and sends her tumbling to the side. Her face hits a small rock on the way along the rough floor, and she can feel the taste of her own blood in her mouth.

She smiles, and pushes herself back up. The copper taste and her bruised lip bring it home to her. She's god knows where in a fight to the death, with some of the oldest vamps she’s ever seen.

Her smile broadens to an almost feral one. God, she loves this.

Hi!

Just letting you know that I've finally written feedback for your stories for the Feedbackficathon. So, so sorry these were so very late. RL kind-of intruded, and then my computer had a complete meltdown. I only hope my comments aren't a complete let-down by this point!

Best,

-Andrea

No worries. I'm still waiting for a Faith ficathon for me from way before that. :)

As long as you guys keep producing the Secretary remix, believe me - I'm very happy!

Thanks for the kind words!

*grins evilly* Ah fights to the death - nothing like 'em. Nice installment. Very nice indeed. Oh, and I am busy becoming a salvering fangirl of all the ladies who write the Secretary fic. Damn that's some good smut, I mean writing. ~EV
