Fratsfa:

     Sizzling Sunflower had said that the obstacles on the way back to the true
Fratsfa, three mancats and two more ordinary men, would not be a problem and she
meant it.  After all, she was a skilled gladiator, a Lady Protector, and she had just
defeated the champion of this place, the vampire.  She was confident of her prowess,
and by the way they moved, she could see that her opponents were also confident--of
HER prowess.
     She smiled and moved into the attack, her blade flickering in diffused light of
this place.  Five opponents at once, well, she wasn't alone, either, and though
Lenpro was, from her point of view, old, she knew he was resolute and suspected that
he had considerable skill himself.  They could handle this.
     Her target was the group of mancats, Aruaki, probably, who had been frozen in
mid-change.  She judged them to be the most dangerous, and she was, after all, the
Lady Protector.  They seemed nervous, not at all eager to close with her, which
showed more intelligence than she'd expected of them.  Not that it would do them any
good.
     She grinned and leaped forward suddenly, right into the nearest one.  There was
a bright flash, almost blinding, but she didn't need to see to recognize the feeling
of her blade driving into flesh and bone.  She wrenched it free, blinking away after-
images, and pivoted toward where the next-closest had been.
     He wasn't there!  As her vision cleared, she saw that he was backing away, and
the other had frankly turned and run.  Well, she was going to get at least ONE more!
She bared her teeth in a snarl and stalked after the one still present and on his
feet.  Saw his eyes widen in true fear as he backed faster, apparently afraid to turn
his back on her.  He was blinking and squinting, too, and there was something wrong
with his shadow.
     "Sunflower!  Let him go--the portal is clear--"
     She did a little blinking of her own, shook her head but the voice didn't go
away.  Remembered finally that she had a partner here, and glanced around.
     Lenpro had both his men down, one was dead, she couldn't tell about the other.
He was squinting at her.
     "Let that creature go," he said.  "We have more important things to do.  Ah, you
might sheathe your sword...."
     She looked down at the blade in her hand and realized that it was hot gold,
bright as sunlight.  Reluctantly, it seemed a shame to hide that glorious light, she
slid it into the scabbard.  The world here seemed a lot darker after she did.  Would
it still blaze with sunlight in the ordinary world?  Perhaps not, but there was only
one way to find out.  She squared her shoulders and faced the portal.  "Let's go,"
she said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TOBIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for YUFFY?  
MIDGAR's proud of her after beating ARRNOLD and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  ARRNOLD's match with YUFFY cost him a loss of 12 points!  Was that a 
tear I saw in PITCH's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't HELENA fit to 
be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
