The mercenary clad in her favorite leotard and blue armor hit the wall hard, sliding down the stony masonry and into a heap on the floor. Said outfit at this point however, was in terrible condition. Ripped in several areas and her armor cracked and in some places even shattered and stripped.. Athena began to wonder just how she found herself in such a situation.
Looming over the young swordswoman was another woman of very tall stature, taller in fact than most men. And with double the strength to boot! Her very light attire left little to the imagination but served well to display her very impressive build.. with rippling muscles all up and down her bare belly, arms and legs. What a fool this little girl from the western lands was for daring to challenge her!
Athena slowly picked herself up from the ground, now on hands and knees. All she planned for was a friendly match.. she had no idea that she'd be in for the beating of her life! Before she could get up on her own however, the brutish savage grasped a portion of the girl's stretchy leotard around her neck and lifted her up, pulling her in close at Athena's protests. "N-no more!" the mercenary pleaded, waving her arms about. "I-I give up! You're stronger than me.. a LOT stronger!"
"Damn right I am!" the savage said, holding Athena up in the air effortlessly.. and with one hand no less! "You'd do well to remember my strength too. For I am but a sampling of the strength of my people. You got that?"
Athena nodded her head nervously, not wanting to anger this woman any more than she already had... was it really that bad what she had said? All she did was state that the woman's mask on her head looked a bit silly...
"I am Takibi of the Shadowflame Tribe. Remember my name, little one!" the savage roared before slamming Athena down on a table. The mercenary coughed out in pain and could only watch in awe as Takibi made her way out of the tavern.
This had certainly been an interesting day.
Just a simple ryona image I did at the request of another. I might do a follow-up to this one with Athena learning an even harsher lesson if I get enough requests for it.
