It was a good thing her audiobook wasn't working...

Always Prepared

by DeboraDyess

Her library app didn't work that evening. Just me and my brain tonight, she thought walking to her car.

It was a good thing.

Audiobooks cover the noise of someone sneaking up behind you.

She'd been raised in a family of cops and knew what to do. Years of karate and taekwondo surged through her muscles. She spun, kicked violently, simultaneously slamming her flat palm into the man's face.

He crashed to the ground, stunned.

She gasped. "Daddy! I'm so sorry!"

Just a bit of ridiculousness. Hope you enjoy it. (And, no, I never smacked my dad! But I don't remember him sneaking up on me on a dark street, either, so it might have happened... lol)
There's an audio if you prefer to listen.
