Fairy Hedgehog meets Lizard Girl

Fairy Hedgehog arrived to find Lizard Girl painting a picture full of vibrant colour and intricate artwork on the side of Parishtown Library. Unfortunately, it featured the members of the town council in obscene and libellous acts and many of the watching crowd were taking pictures with their mobile phones.

Fairy Hedgehog spoke to one of the two police officers standing nearby. "Why haven't you arrested her?"

"Ma'am, stand back, please. She's armed!" he said.

Lizard Girl had a paintbrush in one hand and a spraycan in the other. Fairy Hedgehog approached her and Lizard Girl's scaly grey skin rippled as she turned and met Fairy's eyes.

"You can't do that here," Fairy said.

Lizard Girl raised her crest. She lifted her hands, extended her claws and ran toward Fairy Hedgehog, darting her head forward and twisting her hips from side to side in a curious hopping run. The spectators moved further back but they continued to take pictures. Lizard Girl pulled back her lips to show pointed teeth and shook the spraycan and the paintbrush in Fairy's face.

Fairy stifled a smile. "Give them to me," she said and held out her hand.

Lizard Girl stopped, dropped everything and ran. She shot back towards the Library and straight up the side, clinging on lizard-like to the building itself. Fairy stamped on the ground and huge vines rose out of the earth and up the building after Lizard Girl. The branches twisted and twined, seeking out their prey.

"Come down, will you!" Fairy shouted. "I'm not going to hurt you."

She sent a rush of power surging through the vine so that tendrils reached up and grabbed Lizard Girl who struggled violently. The vine pulled away from the building but she clung on. Slowly, the branches retracted back into the soil, bringing Lizard Girl down with them. Just as she reached the ground, she twisted herself around and pulled out of her supersuit. Leaving it dangling in the branches, she ran straight into the astonished crowd and was lost to view.

One policeman went over to deal with the crowd, the other came to confront Fairy Hedgehog. "Well," he said, "you certainly saw her off for us, didn't you?"

Fairy didn't respond to the sarcasm in his voice. "This isn't the end," she said. "This is only the beginning."

I like Fairy Hedgehog's cool demeanor. Also that she reserves use of her powers and attempts dialogue.

Lizard Girl is interesting in that she seems the opposite. Geared entirely on emotion.

I like it.

McKoala said...

Fairyhedgehog is always cool.

Did that naughty Lizard Girl run off in the nudie?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Very cool. Liked it.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, all of you.

I've got some ideas for what happens next. LG did indeed escape in the nude. (Is that PG?)

I'm going to give Lizard Girl the benefit of the doubt until we find out more. Maybe depicting them engaged in obscene and libelous acts is exactly what the council members deserved. Good job!

Bevie said...

I'm with BT. The jury's still out on Lizard Girl.

You wrote nothing explicit. It's PG-13 to me.

fairyhedgehog said...

I agree, Blogless Troll. I'm not sure about FH either. She seems a bit patronising to me.

Bevie said...

Patronizing? Oooh! Maybe we've got the hero-villain roles mixed?

Can't wait to find out for sure.

This is a fun story - I like how lizard girl got away and it also let us know that she might have been called lizard girl, but she didn't have scales!
I think you were well within the PG rating!

Fairyhedgehog has her motherly super voice powers down, doesn't she? This was fun. Now I want to know where a naked Lizard Girl runs to hide.

fairyhedgehog said...

I'm glad you liked it. I was very nervous about posting it as everyone else's stories have been so amazing. I think there's room for all levels in here though, isn't there?

WayneJohn said...

Hey there, kinda cool what you're doing here! Nice!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks Wayne!

i really liked this. If you could go back and add a few policemen and prosecutors to the painting, that would make me very happy. : )
