Luciano unexpectedly dove inside Jason’s guard. Grabbing a fistful of shirt, he spun Jason through the air once, twice, then hurled him at the arena wall.

Jason cursed and reoriented, the rapidly approaching wall becoming the new floor. The instant his feet touched, he rolled forward, using his momentum to propel him into a dead run. His synapses still in high gear, he raced around the arena’s perimeter, rolling again and kicking hard against the stone barrier to shoot himself, spinning, back at his foe. Luciano predictably sidestepped; Jason shoved his sword to his right, planting it firmly in the dirt floor. He relaxed his grip, allowing his hands to slide around the hilt, and his body followed, his left boot lashing Luciano across the face. The Latino cyborg was knocked to the floor, and Jason allowed himself to whirl once around the blade before touching down, his back to his enemy. He drew his katana from the earth and turned, his fluid sweep batting away the recovered Luciano’s thrust.
