“Come on Pepper what’s a matter with you today?  Focus take him down now!” Pepper swings her left arm hitting the man breaking his nose and then moves behind him kicking him in the back of his left knee that brings him to the ground.  “Good, good but you were too slow to react when he attacked you from behind so let’s go again.  Jerry your up” “yes sir” the 6’3 built man face’s the toned body of a 5’4 12 year old Pepper.

 On Toms command they start to fight Jerry makes the first move and try’s to hit Pepper but she moves out of the way and hits him in his side.  They go back and forth a few hits here and there but nothing that vases either one.  Then Jerry pulls out a knife and swings it towards Pepper but to Jerry’s surprise this doesn’t seem to bother the young girl and she attacks even stronger.

Pepper gets two good punches in making the man stumble just a little bit, then she swings her leg kicking the knife out of his hand but he grabs ahold of her foot.  With a good push off the ground with her left leg she kicks him right in the face knocking him to the ground.  She quickly grabs the knife and holds it to the man’s neck.  The man’s eyes looked shocked as blood starts to run down his chin from his busted lip and nose.

“Hey, hey Tom she’s not going to kill me is she?”  With a laugh Tom steps forward “no Jerry this is all just practice for Pepper.”  “Are we done sir” Pepper asks as she throws the knife making it stick in the wall.  “Yes we’re done for the night” she walks up the basement stairs and then up to her room shutting the door behind her.  She grabs her notebook and a pen and sits down on the floor and begins to write.

Today has been a long day, Tom got me up at 3:30 this morning to shoot my gun he got me for my birthday last month.  I shot for three hours straight and only missed five targets although Tom wasn’t happy that I missed five seeing as how long I’ve been shooting for so he told me to shoot another three hours.  I didn’t miss any the second time, after lunch I was working out in the basement and Tom and his friends came in and Tom told me that it was time to practice my hand to hand combat fighting.  I know nothing outside of this life guns, knives, fighting and working out.  My training is all I know and Training for what I still can’t say Tom won’t tell me but I know he’s training me for something big and one day I’ll be ready to do it.
