6. Fighting

I was almost there, I was close enough to see that the fallen was a woman and the predators were men. They still hadn't heard or seen me, that was good. Sneaking up behind one of them I took his legs out from under him. The other came at me with a knife he had been intending to use on the woman. I ducked and grabbed his arm forcing him to drop the blade, Flipping him I concentrated on the other man who had quickly recovered.

He tried to fake me out and I caught a hold of his shirt and punched him right in the sternum. He fell back with the wind knocked out of him. I felt a sharp pain in my side making me cry out and turned to see the man I had flipped holding a bloody knife. My clothes soiled by my own blood. Well of course I had to wear white, I thought absentmindedly. I kind of chuckled and the man looked at me like I was crazy. He shoved me and I fell into the sand, well this is familiar; getting my ass kicked. No, I wouldn't let it happen; not this time.

I grabbed a piece of driftwood and held it in my right hand, I stood back up. Both men were facing me now; the woman momentarily forgotten. I shifted my footing and eyed them both, the smaller one came at me and I cracked the wood against his head. he fell like a rock. The bigger one was more careful, he kept faking and finally I took the step into the center; not very smart. He got me again with the knife on my shoulder and before I could react he jumped out of reach.

I chucked the driftwood at him, it glanced his shoulder but it looked like he was hurting worse than I was. I rushed up and cracked his nose with my palm, it gushed blood. The stupid girl hadn't run away yet, what an idiot. I was sitting here beating the shit out of the guy that attacked her and she doesn't even have the courtesy to move out of the way. But when I took a closer look I realized she was unconscious. Well there goes running for it.

He came at me again, I could tell he was wearing down; he was anxiously looking at his partner who still hadn't moved. I tackled him and started wailing on him. The knife didn't even effect me when he got me twice more. When I finished he was still but breathing, both of them were. I was feeling a tad faint, I looked down at myself; I was stained completely red. I felt like I had just walked out of a horror movie. My clothes were dripping blood onto the white sand, they were pearls of crimson that left black drips everywhere.

I could feel myself fading, there was no way I would fall; not here, not next to them when they could wake and slit my throat. I forced myself off my knees and stood. I shook the woman, she came to slowly but she saw me and the men on the ground. Instantly she stood and tried to assist me to the hospital; but my knees were giving out.
