The monster dove towards her, and with out even looking, she darted forward, placing a foot on the wall, flipping up and over the creature. At the apex of the flip, the sword in her hand lashed out, decapitating it. Blood spewed, but when she landed, not a drop of blood was on her. Why? It was her inherent badassery.
