When those three demons came at her, she’d initially frozen in panic. But as the blows landed, she’d felt anger simmering in her.
Rage that they would attack her after all the demons had done. And then grim satisfaction. Now was her chance for some revenge.
She’d fought back. Her arms rising to block blows, fists shooting to strike. Her feet and legs moving more intricately than any dance.
In that moment, strength had filled her. She’d managed to grab hold of one demon and toss her, denting a bathroom stall. Another grabbed hold of Adara and spun her, forcing her to land hard on the countertop. She’d recovered just in time to avoid the charging blow of another demon.
