True warrior: An Airman’s fight
True warriorThe distant roar of hundreds hungry for action pulses through the compound, rumbling the stone walls of a dimly lit waiting room. Shoulders hunched, a fighter walks down a hallway, with a grey hood draped over his perspiring head. Mounted lights pass over his face in pale strips of sterilized trepidation with every step he takes down the corridor. He remains silent. His hulking figure leads his team toward the stage entrance. Swirling lights of red, blue and purple bleed out onto the gray floor as they draw closer. A low bass beats louder as they close-in to a set of green double doors. A grungy riff hails his entrance; the song's low and heavy rhythm rumbling like the guttural growl of a beast poised to pounce. The fighter stands at the arena entrance, staring into its mouth like a silent giant, motionless and unblinking. He takes a deep breath, bares his mouth guard for an instant, and then steps through the threshold. Roars of near-deafening caliber emanate through the room, consuming him in one awesome wave. The crowd screams down at him, cheering, waving; their eager shouts and motions fueled by nervous excitement. He takes off his warmup gear down to nothing but his camouflage-pattern shorts and yellow gloves. As the referee's fingers massage lubricant on his scalp and ears, the fighter's eyes flash up toward the bright ring - towards his opponent. Their eyes lock. Once more, he bears his fangs, eyes never leaving his one target: his fight. With this determination at the forefront of his mind, he steps into the ring.
