Excerpt from Protector:
A month later, it was my first day
out doing something normal—shopping at the mall. Up to now, I’d avoided crowds,
doing my grocery shopping when the stores were almost deserted. Walking to my
car in the parking garage, my hands were full of bags, and a man walked behind
me. At first, I didn’t think of hearing someone behind me, until his footsteps
sped up to get close to me. He demanded my purse. I was willing to cooperate
since I didn’t want to provoke him. Better my stuff than my life, right? That’s
what the police tell you to do. So, I set down the bags, and the guy lunged for
my purse.
I can’t tell you how I did what
happened next.
Next thing I knew, I had the guy in
a choke hold with claws pressed to his neck. Claws! The guy started freaking
out, then, begging me not to hurt him. I tightened the hold until he blacked
out, then called 911 on my cell phone. The police arrived, took my statement
and the mugger, and I went home.
My fingernails turned into claws. That
was NOT normal. Both hands? I stared at my left. Yep, both hands. Oh God.
And then the fight moves. What was
that? This wasn’t The Matrix. I hadn’t been plugged into a machine for a kung
fu download. Had I? What really happened in that village?
