Prompt: Conversation with my spouse | Word Count: 1200 | Genre: Fantasy

At this, I launch myself from the ledge, aiming my feet at the neck of the big burly fellow. I feel the crunching impact and ride him into the ground. The woman regains her footing and lunges at the other man. She ducks a swing and deftly jabs him in his throat, dropping him in a heap. She whirls around like a cat. Her long dark curls flow around her shoulders like a mane, and her lapis lazuli eyes rivet me to the spot.
