I wouldn't worry overly for her, even if she loses a good little fight will be good for her morale.
Poor Ellen! This looks like rock bottom?
Nah, statistically, you lose half of the fights you get in, so that bit is something she can deal with.
Ha ha! Statistically I've lost almost all of my fights! So I'm familiar with Ellen's plight of her knowing she'll probably loose, but not backing down out of pride.
I was about to suggest to form a league of mediocre fighters so we'd all have chances to win, but then we'd probably trip, break an ankle, and both lose!
Ohh I like how quiet the whole fight seems even though there's a lot going on.
I'd feel silly writing every little sound - there ought to be rustling and grunting there, but I don't think spelling them out would add to the action.
Really like this without dialogue, it makes it real and more intense.
I didn't imagine there'd be much room for talking in this sort of action!
