The Rat Of Fury
*Cosmos is the cat*
From across the street, Sunshine saw Pete get out of his pick-up and look around. She headed across the road, clutching Cosmos. He made eye contact as Sunshine neared the middle of the road; about the exact same time his expression told her he heard the same screech of tyres and roar of engine she did.
“Sunshine! Look out!” Pete screamed at her
Turning sideways, Sunshine stood directly in the path of a speeding black car. Sunshine's heart felt as if it dropped into her stomach, she braced herself for the full force impact. Seconds seemed like minutes and her body reacted without thought. Instinctively, she deftly threw Cosmos in the direction of Pete and prayed he would catch him instead of killing himself to try and save her. No point them both getting skittled.
As she turned to face her oncoming attacker she breathed in air through her nostrils and held her breath, harnessing her energy. The whole scene turned into slow motion.
Her body tingled and her white hot power-ball centered inside her. “Li Yáng Guang...Jump, yes…jump” the voice ordered her.
The words, not whispered, sounded loudly in her mind. That voice commanded her and Sunshine crouched down with perfect balance, thrusting her hands upwards into the air as she pushed up. Picturing the power-ball exploding, using every ounce of strength her legs could muster, further upwards. Exhaling powerfully, she rose easily into the air. Every last ounce of the power-ball radiated to her extremities.
With a body as light as a feather, time almost stood still. Sunshine felt her body above the ground. The rush of air thrust her upwards as the car passed underneath, giving enough momentum to somersault forward, inhaling as she twirled. A blast of cold air assaulted her nostrils. Tucking her body into a ball, she let it spin at least five times. Her senses told her the car passed completely underneath.
Stretching her legs out her arms reached out to the each side. Landing on her feet with a small bump, her knees bent automatically to lessen the impact. She exhaled and hit the ground running. The car tires screeched and Sunshine knew the vehicle came again. Sunshine ran hard for Pete's vehicle and screamed at him, “Come on!” He snapped out of his apparent daze and ran toward the driver's seat door with Cosmos firmly in his grip.
Tossing the surprised looking feline into the vehicle, he slammed his door behind him. Pete hit the key just as the first shot's rang out. Sunshine heard bullets pinging off the pick-up.
“Get down and hang on!” Pete told her as he roared off.
Sunshine did just that, sheltering Cosmos. Determined not to get killed now, not until she’d settled some scores, Sunshine prayed Pete would not get injured. Her blood pulsed in exhilaration as she tried to get her head around what just happened. The shivers set in, fighting against her body’s natural reaction. Sunshine calmed herself, harnessing all her emotion into her next white hot power-ball.
After a few more twists and turns of his vehicle, a couple more shots rang out, the attacking car sped off.
“Are you okay? I think you can get up now. They've given up. I suspect they want you alive.” Pete checked his mirrors.
“Yes, we are fine. Thank you for being here Pete.” Sunshine answered, truly grateful. Her shivering just barely noticeable now.
“Don't thank me, you saved yourself. You must have jumped twenty foot in the air and you spun so fast. Where'd you learn to jump like that?” he glanced at her.
“I didn't, it just happened. Something strange is going on here Pete, something that can't be explained in normal terms. At least I know who’s responsible for my family’s murders.” Sunshine hung her head and fought back tears, now more than ever she needed someone to hold her.
“You do?” Pete asked, seeming quite surprised.
