Heat #41

by

I lunged at Doug and even as we fell together his mouth still uttered those words, he shouted them, bellowed them, and they ricocheted around us like hot hard bullets.
Sinuous branches reached from within to strengthen my whole body. My arms, propelled by the power that surged up through me from beneath the earth, pounded back and forth like some maddened machine incapable of stopping or being stopped.
Only when the pain in my knuckles sliced through this horrifying and wonderful feeling did I realise that I'd been pummelling Doug's face, his blood and mine mingling on my fists.
