Ginny balanced the Louisville Slugger against her leg and sighed, realizing she had earned her fifteen minutes of fame. Her friends would slap her back. They would call her the bomb.

She had grown tired of hanging her head, ducking questions and running scared. The trash talk time had ended, and the time for action had arrived. She stepped up to the plate, dug in, and swung for the fences.

The police, so slow to protect her, were quick to arrest her, but her file proved it was self-defense. No matter what they said, it didn’t feel like a victory.

  1. Dear Jo,

    Perhaps the police would say she shouldn’t have been there or maybe she dressed wrong…any number of things women have been accused of when they were the victims. Sad her victory is hollow, but at least they recognized her actions as self defense. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
