Last week I finished the scene where Estelle is surprised to meet Toby, the hunky biker, at Goldman University, and she learns he studies Engineering. In the next Chapter, she meets him again under unusual circumstances. First, leading up to their meeting, I’ll give you a glimpse into her secret life as Super Starrella with her winged mare, Rockette.
Flying with Rockette a few nights later, Starrella spotted the shadow of a giant mantis swaying back and forth against a moonlit brick wall. In the dark alley below, the crisp footsteps of a lone woman echoed faintly. The intended victim peered from side to side, nervous, yet unaware of the terror lurking above her head.
“Rockette,” Starrella warned.
“Seen it,” spreading her wings, the mare glided down towards the mantis. Her silent descent brought them within ten feet before the mantis noticed.
It lunged for the flying mare.
Focusing her energies, Starrella shot a beam of fire at the huge insect. It screeched, clawed at its head and dropped into the darkness of the alley. Meanwhile, the pedestrian had trotted round the corner into the safety of the well-lit main street.
