coastlineYou can tell Jany has been listening and getting some benefit from Bianca’s advice, because she comfortably and confidently launches into “let’s make some conditions for this battle.”

Walker doesn’t comment, but for once I think she’s impressed.

Jany: Come over here, Kara Lynn.

We have conditions, okay? They stick to human forms. No powers, no major injury. They jump into the air, first one to be knocked to the ground loses.

Jany: How much do those hurt you?

Kara Lynn: I can take it.

Jany: Okay. Energy, nothing physical. Under those conditions —

— we accept!

Blake: Beach. Lots of flat, open sand. Rocks to your right, water dead ahead. Let’s do this.
