Prepare for battle

Post by rowan_bristol » Wed Jun 19, 2019 9:44 am

I don my armor.

Polyester and spandex to keep me cool and limit the impact of contact.
Lacing and steel to protect my core and provide a posture that looks confident and unafraid.
Two layers of leggings to hide the damage and scarring.
My gauntlets are thick, warm and soft. Easy to touch, impossible to be touched.
My helmet turns down the noises and limits my vision to only that which I need to see.
Thus armored, I enter the arena. I have no weapons, other than my skills and my courage.
“Welcome to the stage, Lei Lei the panda!”
"To Love is to Act."
