Leading up to Estelle’s next meeting with the mysterious Toby, I’ll give you a glimpse into her secret life as Super Starrella with her winged mare, Rockette. You can read last week’s snippet here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/06/super-starrella-in-action-snippet-for.html
Slipping off the mare’s back, Estelle circled the space, alert for another attack from the injured mantis. Behind her, Rockette snorted and stamped her hooves, impatient at the delay. A rush of air and the mare squealed, her hooves shuffling on the asphalt. Swiveling towards the sound, Starrella bit her lip; mantis mandibles clamped onto a feathery wing, pinning the mare on the ground. In a blur of white feathers, Rockette struggled to free her wing, twisting and kicking with no visible effect.
Starrella pointed her fingers and hesitated, unsure of her target. White mare and green mantis writhed together, and she was afraid of hitting the wrong one.
A black shape bounded out of the darkness, resolving into the lithe body of a large cat. Leaping onto the struggling combatants, the cat’s teeth snapped into the neck of the mantis. The mare jerked away and stood shuddering as the mantis legs scrabbled on the tarmac.
