The two moved simultaneously. One man began to draw his sword, the other began to kick. The sword made a clean sound as it slide along the scabbard. The other man’s leg sailed through the air, the loose cloth of his pants whipping through the air.
The man with the sword, was confident, he would take the kick and gut the bastard.
Imagine his surprise then, when the foot connected with his wrist, arresting his sword’s movement and slamming it back into the scabbard.
The second strike was less of a surprise. The whole strategy became obvious after the kick.
