Cloris stayed silent, obviously appraising the two women Micah had with him. Billy Jack walked forward and, pulling his hat off his head, looked at Shara and Nadine and said “Plehsure’s all mine, ma’am… Miss. I’m Billy Jack. These here are ma sisters Cloris and Maybel.” and his face twitched slightly. Micah smiled at Billy Jack and looked at Cloris and then stepped beside her. “He’s doing a lot better, ain’t he? Those meds help out?” he asked in a normal conversational tone. Cloris nodded once, her eyes never leaving Shara and Nadine. “Yep. Much appreciated to, by the way. Doc told us he was losing his speech, but the pills done got him chattering up a storm. So where’d ya pick this broad up at?” and she jerked her chin at Shara.

It was the familiar feeling of being sized up and found wanting that had Shara’s back instantly up. Oh, she knew. Unfortunately for others, it usually didn’t end well… for them

Micah chuckled. “Now now, Cloris… that woman is not only my wife, but she’s tougher than you ever thought about bein’. I’d go easy or you just might end up in the creek here.” Cloris tore her eyes from the women and stared hard at Micah. She looked back at Shara and scoffed. “City chick like that’un wouldn’t be able ta stand the cold water. Prolly jump outta there screaming and hollerin’.” and she laughed. Micah looked at her for a minute, then looked at Shara… and winked.

Amusement swept across her face and Shara very subtly relaxed some parts of her body while readying others. Brows lifted, she just looked back at Micah with a said *’Really?’.

“Care to put a little wager on that, sunshine? Say… five gallons?” Cloris sized up Shara for a minute and then spit off to the side. “Make it ten.” she said flatly. “You up fer that, cutie pie? Ten gallons ‘a hooch says I can drop your skinny ass in that there creek before I even get my feet wet.” and she grinned.

Micah stepped between Maybel and Billy Jack and put a hand on their shoulders. “Some things never change, do they?” and Maybel chuckled. “Nope… hard headed as ever, that one.”


See, the thing about a fun little tussle was that it was all in good fun, even if there were reputations and honour at stake. And one would think you would start out at the same time with an even chance at winning. That was assuming that they were fighting fair.

Shara wasn’t.

And that was the point as she began moving even as Micah and Maybe were finishing up their little quips. She was already in motion, closing the small distance between her and Cloris, planting a knee into the dirt as she locked her arms around Cloris and threw her weight forward towards the creek. By the size and broadness of Cloris and the slimness of Shara, reason said that it shouldn’t have worked, a non-starter. But Shara was not soft. Her body was hard and more muscle than the average Human woman. Long past the point of bearing children, she had honed her body to be a weapon itself, never knowing when and how she’d have need of it.

She let go once she felt Cloris’ weight shift into a flip, and then cleared the space where she had been crouched, slowly coming to rise up again on her feet. “B!tch, please. I was a Maquis when you were still clutching your mama’s skirts. I’ve always been the underdog, and likely always will be too.” She said, stepping backwards towards Micah, not at all concerned about tripping on something, her steps careful and sure.

Meanwhile, Nadine took in the action with sheer shock. Cloris had misjudged which was the city-girl who was more of the liability here and Nadine was well aware of it. But highly amused just the same.

Cloris landed with a grunt and a curse… and a thud. Billy Jack scowled and started to take a step, but Micah said “Easy, my boy… you know it’s gotta happen this way. Cloris don’t learn any other way.” Billy Jack paused, and then nodded… but the scowl stayed. For her part, Maybel laughed out loud. “Aww hell, naw, Sis! You gonna let that skinny little thing whoop yer ass? Get her in the creek! Loser is the one that goes in the drink!” she yelled and then stuck two fingers in her mouth and whistled loudly.


Shara shot Micah another amused glance, but it was also shot with worry. Not for her, no, but clearly these folks didn’t understand that her and Micah were highly trained. And while she sometimes lamented the ways in which Faye was too much like herself for comfort, scrappiness was a family trait she was happy to have been a part of. “Already had a shower today, don’t intend to have another,” Shara said as she took up a defensive stance. Now, Cloris, pissed off and out for blood could probably move her about pretty easily but Shara also knew that sometimes you had to let your opponent win a little in order to steal the overall advantage. Though for the moment, she wasn’t about to give up her advantage too easily.


Cloris stood up and put a hand on her back and rubbed a spot where a rock had made itself known. She looked at Shara. But instead of the normal reaction of charging, Cloris dropped back a step and shifted her weight slightly. Not a common reaction, by any means. Spreading her feet shoulder-width apart, she kept a low bodily profile towards Shara and began circling in a slow manner towards Shara’s left hand side, her eyes locked on the older woman and her hands up, but her fingers open and loose…

A classic Marine hand-to-hand combat stance.


A grin spread across Shara’s face and she gave a tiny, almost imperceptible nod. I see you, she was saying. As she began to circle too, knowing one fo them would have to make the first move or they could forever circle. “You know Pickle, I thought this was supposed to be my vacation I think we need to start redefining what that means.”
