You and Sable exchange blows for a few minutes, until finally both of you sink in a hard punch on each other. You wheeze as a punch slams into your stomach, and she moans and falters back as you get a shot in to her head.
You take this moment to rest and get your breath back, but as you look down at your body you see heavy bruises scattered all around your stomach and chest. You have a splitting headache and a constant feeling of wooziness. You're not too sure if you can go on for much longer...
Your eyes move up to see that the lynx hasn't left her spot, and in fact looks in just as terrible shape as you do. You feel a small spark of hope arise in you -- this queen can still be taken down. It's possible, and you've already exceeded the expectations of any challenger she has met so far. Most are knocked out by now, but not you.
You see her moving off of the ropes, and then her legs preparing to spring to leap at you with one of her legendary leaping punches. You can't take this hit, but at the same time, you feel that your gloves are coming up dreadfully slow to block it, and your feet feel like cinder blocks. You panic, and throw out your own devastating hook that would knock this kitty down for sure, but you can only pray if it'll hit. --------
