And then Rayne lunged in with a rock-solid left uppercut that lifted the Latin beauty off her feet!
The fighters circled each other slowly, neither one quite willing to make the first move. Jessica was reluctant to throw first because she knew that’s exactly what Valerie was waiting for, biding her time.
“What’s wrong, Nova Striker?” Valerie jabbed not with her fists, but with her words. “Afraid to strike?”
At that, Valerie’s upper body dipped as she stepped in swiftly.
”Now…!” Jessica thought, as she fired off a crisp left jab aimed right between the Brit’s icy blue eyes.
It was fast, but Valerie saw it coming. She rose into an evasive stance, slipping the jab with a slight tilt of her head. As she took a step back to create a temporary buffer, Jessica advanced, flinging two more jabs, though neither hit their mark as the slippery target weaved around them.
