Sweat dripped down Ahbi’s caramel-colored back. Her white, short chiton was nearly transparent with sweat as she grappled with a man in leather armor who stood a whole head taller than her own impressive height of six feet. Her hands were locked with his, and with no-kicking rules in place, neither seemed able to disconnect safely.
Flashing cameras distracted her and her opponent for a moment as the viewers held their smart phones aloft, trying to zoom in on the best possible shot of the fight.
Ahbi took a risk. It wasn’t green by the rules, but it wasn’t forbidden, either. She ducked and lunged between his legs, then yanked his arms behind him, flipping the heavy man down her sturdy back. He released her in shock, and she released him, then dropped an elbow down just under his ribs. He coughed, and an orange-and-black clad referee wearing a holographic clown’s mask ran over.
