Confrontation — Page 16



*Alejandro grinds his teeth, eyes wide with pain.*

*Lucy steps away, dusting off her arm. Alejandro slides down the wall and onto the ground, clutching his crotch. His tail is fluffed up.*

*Lucy looks down at him.*
Lucy: Creep.

Lucy: You’d think I’d get all friendly with a scumbag like you?

*Lucy puts her hands to her hips and glares at Alejandro, who remains keeled over in pain.*
Lucy: What kind of pathetic loser bullies kids for their lunch money?

*She grabs Alejandro’s head and knees him in the chin. Alejandro spits out blood.*
Lucy: Now run away with your stupid friend and leave us alone.

*Lucy turns her back and runs to Mike, worried.*
Lucy: Mike!!
*Alejandro, in the foreground, dribbles blood from his mouth.*

*Lucy kneels beside Mike and inspects his bruised head. Mike is passed out.*
Lucy: Mike? You okay?

Lucy: Are you awake??

*Lucy’s expression of worry intensifies.*
Lucy: MIKE!!

*A shadow rises up behind Lucy as she pleads with Mike.*
Lucy: Please.. wake up.. We can go now!

*Alejandro suddenly turns Lucy around and pins her to the wall. Lucy grits her teeth, eyes shut.*

Author commentary

Veronica: I kept thinking to myself that it’s a cliché to have a character not realise someone is sneaking up behind them.. considering Lucy did that to the goon before.. but the funny thing is Lucy is half-deaf so she genuinely wouldn’t have heard the guy coming towards her!!!!! Maybe you shoulda finished the job, Lucy!!

To be fair to her, she kicked the other guy and he was DONE. Lucy couldn’t predict the second time he’d be so.. stubborn.
