So this thread is for posting short stories, a paragraph or two, of ryona scenes. Basically it's all the good stuff without all that bullshit "story telling" us writers like to use. :p Let me start this thread with one of my favourite entries into the old thread which sadly did not make the crossover. _______________________ Maki was returning home from a training session at the gym, standing out in her bright red gi. Ever since helping defeat and dismantle the Mad Gear gang, she and everyone involved had become something of a hero to Metro City. But not everyone looked kindly on her actions... Poison waited for Maki, having ducked into an alley as Maki wasn't looking. Her back pressed against the wall, she slipped on her knuckle duster and waited. As Maki passed by, Poison emerged from the alley behind her and swung a punch at the back of Maki's head. "UNGH!" Maki grunted as her body went heavy suddenly, falling to to the pavement face first and landing with a smack. She lay unmoving. Poison waited. She knew Maki was tough... but Maki was motionless. Prodding the Bushin ninja with a ruby red heel, she rolled Maki onto her back. Her eyes were half open. She was still conscious, somehow. Poison put on a sweet act. "Aw, honey, you look like you're hurt. Are you hurt?" she asked Maki. Maki weakly nodded a little. Poison grinned. "Good. It's about to get a lot worse." Raising her fist slowly, she held it above Maki for a moment, letting her take in the image of what was going to happen. The last thing Maki saw before unconsciousness took her over was Poison's knuckle duster flashing downwards.
