Chapter 7: My guard is up
Hit Girl and Kick Ass have to be behind this chaotic day. Whatever it is, I got to get answers from them by accepting their invitation to their private training tomorrow. Although I may be scared of what they are going to do to me and the fact that I don't trust them, but I have to find out what they want from me and get them out of my life once and for all. What made them think that I can be a superhero? Me, an average teenage girl running around the streets, risking my life to save innocent people. I think I can actually die from doing it! I can't even imagine myself doing so, let alone them, who don't even know me in real life.
The next day, I told my parents that I'm going to be home late because of a club meeting but the truth is, I'm going to show up at their private training. After school ended, I walked to the abandoned warehouse Kick Ass and Hit Girl wrote in the note. I had mixed emotions, I was nervous and scared of what they have in their sleeves, yet angry and excited at the same time. Finally, I've reached the warehouse. The tall metal double doors were standing strong in front of me unlocked, hiding the secret training location of two of the city's great vigilantes. I placed my hand on the handle and bravely pushed open the doors.
Inside was dark and chilly, only the ray of light coming in from the door allowed me to see its interior clearly. There's a boxing ring, a shelf full of weapons and what I guess it's gym equipments covered by white cloths. It's quiet and it seemed like there's nobody here, but I was here on time, 2 in the afternoon like what the note wrote. Something felt very suspicious. I closed the door and took a few steps into the dingy warehouse. Although the ray of light from the door is gone, I could see my surroundings clearly. I was starting to think that they were pranking me, but I had this eerie feeling because something felt really suspicious.
Suddenly, I felt a quick wind behind me. In seconds, a pair of hands holding a piece of cloth swept over my head and aiming into my mouth. This pair of hands was covered in dark green gloves, it must be Kick Ass's. Before he managed to stuff the cloth into my mouth, I ducked at the same time extended my leg behind and kicked him hard.
"OUCHH!" Kick Ass yelled and he fell to the ground, grabbing his leg tightly.
That happened so fast, I didn't have time to absorb what just happened. To add to my confusion, a force hit both of my legs and sent me crashing onto the ground. That really hurts. Turned out it was Hit Girl that just hit my leg with a baton.
"Greetings, Madison." Hit Girl said with an annoying and arrogant smirk.
Seriously? What in earth was going on? She didn't stop there; she continued to hit me after I got up.
"KICK ASS! Help me out here!" Hit Girl yelled at Kick Ass who was still on the ground.
What on earth are they planning to do? At that moment, I was furious. They obviously just set me up. I avoided every swipe that Hit Girl sent to me with that baton. I was seriously not in the shape to fight as I was wearing skinny jeans, cardigan and a backpack that was still strapped on me while Hit Girl and Kick Ass were in their suit, mask and all. Not to mention, I had no weapons. At that thought, I kicked Hit Girl's wrist hard and she dropped the baton. I quickly grabbed it and felt pleased at the fact that I'm armed with a weapon.
Hit Girl hasn't given up, she started flying punches and kicks at me but I avoided them. Somehow, I could easily predict her next move. My heart was pumping wildly and I was almost breathless. When I finally had the chance to attack her, I hit her back with the baton and she fell to the ground. Kick Ass was next, he approached me but he was limping. I hit his leg that I kicked again and he gave out a loud yell and fell down again immediately. Obviously, it's sprained. After that, both of them were coming towards me and things passed so quickly, I just remembered swinging that baton repeatedly at every punches and kicks they sent flying to me. Continuous "ouchhh!" and "ohmmpph" came out from their mouths. I don't like to hit people, but this was completely for my defence.
Once both of them hit the ground, I quickly made an escape. I couldn't keep this fighting up, it's two of them against one of me. I pushed open the metal doors and ran at full speed towards the row of shop lots. When I reached the shop lots, I casually walked so they won't suspect anything. I realised I still had the baton in my hand so I quickly stuffed it in my bag. I took a few slow steps to absorb what has happened and calmed my beating heart down. I glanced at my watch and it was 2.15 in the afternoon. Wow, it only lasted 15 minutes? It seemed like a long time. I went back home and settled down. After I have calmed down, I checked my condition and fortunately there were no bruises and no body ache.
What just happened? Why were they attacking me? I know Kick Ass planned to stuff my mouth, were they planning to kidnap me? Whatever their plan was, I couldn't trust them one bit anymore. My guard is up. To add to my paranoia, they know where I live and what school I go to.
