It should’ve won, it trained all its life for it. But, that’s the price of a omnipotent author wanting a laugh.

Ironic that he wins by making sure the blood is stopped. Bikkie can start an accupuncher practice. (I know, Devyat allegedly did it, but my writey senses anticipate that she’ll tell Anesu that she didn’t have to do anything at it was all Bikkie.) The Gorram Batguy May 15, 2018 at 3:12 am 10 months ago Well, I expect that she helped “aim” his punch, but the physical force was all Bikkie. Jude May 15, 2018 at 3:27 am 10 months ago Whether it’s Devyat helping or all Bikkie’s doing, I’m just glad he won, fair or not. SARA J DAVIS May 15, 2018 at 7:48 am 10 months ago I just listened to a podcast where Malcolm Gladwell made the argument that it’s wrong to root for the underdog because the outsized disappointment and shame that the favorite feels for losing does not compare to the glee of the winner. We are being cruel to want the underdog to win. However, I don’t think Gladwell took into account the glee of an underdog alike Bikkie. Just saying. It balances. 🙂 Gregg Eshelman May 21, 2018 at 5:58 am 10 months ago Or would Bikkie be an “under-roo”? 😉 War Pig May 15, 2018 at 8:30 am 10 months ago Awww, Bikkie is growing up. Efogoto May 15, 2018 at 12:07 pm 10 months ago Thank goodness we don’t *all* have to. Peter Rogan May 16, 2018 at 5:54 pm 10 months ago Bikkie’s sense of justice prevails over his primal urge to beat the hell out of his opponent. Admirable, and rare. Usually it takes a lot of getting the hell beaten out of you before you realize a fair fight might not be a bad idea for all. Bikkie either intuited that Big Red had a tender solar plexus or he may just have hoped a concussion to Big Red’s aorta would bring him down. Either way, the move of a champion. I hope Anesu cleaned up from her faith in him. “Now is blood time.” Heh. Going to remember that cold line hereafter. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
