- Chapter 13 | Beginners Luck


It was getting late, so me and the guys headed to Blackfall. Reece is going to fight Ray and most likely knock him out, because he was my best fighter and has sometimes even beaten me.

When we got there, we headed over to the bar to sign in and get some water. We would usually get beer, but not if we are going to fight.

I might fight tonight, but I’m not sure because I’m still sore from yesterday’s fight with Ray.

The guys and I went up close to the ring to watch the match that was currently going on, until it was time for Reece to fight.

There were two bulky guys and they both looked pretty beaten up, but they were still throwing punches left and right to knock their opponent out.

One guy was probably 6′5 with blonde hair while the other guy was about 6′3 with black hair and tattoos all over his back, he looked like he was going to win because his punches held more power.

Just as I thought, the guy with tattoos won and then it was time for Reece’s fight.

“NEXT UP WE HAVE OUR NEW CHAMPION! RAY!” The crowd screamed as he made his way to the center of the ring.

“AND FIGHTING HIM TONIGHT WE HAVE RAZOR!” The crowd screams again when Reece walked up there.

I know that Ray won’t be able to beat Reece, he is the best fighter in the second strongest gang.

One time here at the Underground, the best fighter in the Martinez gang fought Reece and lost, so there was no way Ray could defeat him.

“Aren’t you too little to fight?” Reece asked.

“No” He replied.

“This is going to be a fast fight” Reece says getting into his fighting stance.

“It sure is” Ray said quietly while smirking.

“YOU ALL KNOW THE RULES” the ring announcer shouts before the bell went off.


Right when the bell went off Ray threw a right hook to Reece’s head, surprising him.

He stumbled a bit, but then got back into his fighting stance.

They both seemed to swap positions, because Ray was now defense while Reece was offense.

Soon enough they both started circling around until both of them just stopped and this seemed like the moment Reece was waiting for so he could make a move.

Just as I thought, Reece did a roundhouse kick to Ray’s head, but surprisingly Ray was able to block it by catching his leg before it hit him and made Reece fall.

Right when Reece hit the ground Ray got on top of him and was throwing punch after punch to his face and ribs until there was the terrible sound of bones breaking.

I wonder what he got broken and if he can even get up and win the fight. Seeing him lying on the ring floor, he definitely didn’t look like he was in any kind of shape to fight again.

Once Ray got off him, he stood back up and got in his fighting stance waiting to see if Reece would get up or not.

“C’mon Reece, you can do it.” I mumbled to myself.

He wasn’t unconscious yet, but he didn’t look like he would be able to get back up and fight anymore.

He tried getting up, only to fall back down probably because Ray broke some of his ribs.


The bell rang signaling that Reece had lost the fight and Ray had won. “AND THE WINNER IS OUR CHAMPION RAY!”

“DOES ANYONE WANT TO TAKE ON THE CHAMPION?” The ring announcer asks Reece was being taken to the back to get bandaged up.

I decided that since Ray beat up Reece it would only be fair if I beat him up. Maybe this could be my chance to pull off his hood and reveal who he is.

“I will” I say as everyone makes a path for me to get in the ring.

It looks like he groaned when he saw me, probably because he’s scared of losing the title he stole from me. “I challenge Ray for the champion title back” I say.

“Have you come here to lose again Blaze?” He asks.

“I came back for my title, your last fights were just beginners luck” I sneer because I just hate him.

“You’re not getting your title back anytime soon” he said.

“Oh, it’s going to be pretty soon little boy” I reply.



The bell went off and I threw an uppercut to his jaw right away, surprising him and making his head get thrown back.

He recovered faster than I thought and was able to block my next punch, and then he roundhouse kicked me making me stagger back.

Then he threw a left hook to my side and some jabs to my stomach. I tried to find a way to get a punch in and as he backed up a bit, I found finally did.

I was able to get a good jab to his ribs that made him back away even more and I tried to kick him, but he was able to block it.

Not long after, he was able to grab the back of my head and bring it down enough for him to knee me right in the nose.

I hunched over in pain as blood started dripping down my nose.

Ray took that as another chance to make a move as he tripped me and started throwing punches left and right.

But I was able to throw a jab to his cheek making him move enough for me to do the unexpected.

I think he was expecting me to throw another punch, but damn was he wrong. I grabbed his hood and pulled it down showing.. Long dark brown hair... Wtf ?

Gasps were heard throughout the crowd and He got up so quick, looking around at everyone’s faces of pure shock.

Even though I took off his hood, I mean her hood, she wore a black mask covering the top half of her face so I still didn’t know who she was.

I just stood in one place staring at her in shock.

“Y-you’re a girl. I hit a girl” I say still in shock.

“Yea, you did hit a girl. And this girl just beat you again” She says.

“What” I says snapping out of it, but before I could do anything else, she roundhouse kicked me in the temple and all I could see were a bunch of black dots until I was sucked into complete darkness.

I woke up about an hour later and my uncle took me home, because Carson took Reece.

Apparently Reece had gotten his nose, jaw, and 3 ribs broken when he fought tonight.

I wonder how Ray could be such a good fighter. I wonder if she’s in a gang, but she probably isn’t because I don’t believe there are any girls in any gang in the country right now.

When I finally got home, I went up to my room and took a nice long shower.

After, I went straight to bed and drifted off to sleep with only one thought on my mind, “I will find out who you are Ray.”
