Words count: 158

Theme: Hunter

 

She kicked the door in. Half height. Orange hair. A freckled face scrunched up in disgust.

“Alright, alright maggots, one of you is going to die. I’m here to do the dirty deed.”

The cowering men looked up in surprise at the little girl. She swung the crossbow around with alarming dexterity. Her attire was boyish in every way, including the knives at her belt

“Waaah… we were expectin’…” one of the men began

“Yer should be expectin’ nothing mister.” She cut in. “You ought to stay on your knees hoping I’m not here for you.”

The men exchanged looks of confusion. One of them nodded at the girl with a smile. He lifted his head in an attempt to get up when a small brown boot caught the side of his face, breaking his jaw.

“Well now let’s not be stupid ok? I’m a huntress so you ought to be respecting that!” She grinned at them mischievously.
