Here's how their story begins:

My soul-beacon tattoo woke me at two in the morning. I got up and slipped into my skintight, gleaming black leather pants, the matching boots with the four-inch stiletto heels, my bustier and a black hoodie. All set for a night of fighting, climbing and running.

Someone in the city was in trouble. I hoped it wasn't a family member again.

Can you add to this masterpiece? If so, head over to Fantasy Literature and add your two cents.
