A work that came to mind yesterday. This one being a bit I thought felt overlooked- while I did a number of works involving Edgar getting ready for his fight with Axl, there was one two thoughts that went into my mind: One, what if Marcus decided to give Edgar a hand in prepping for the fight? The other will be in a follow-up work.
So here, in an overdue occasion, Marcus takes a break from managing the gym's finances and laces up for a couple rounds.
*As Edgar waited in the ring, he though about the fight that would come in a couple days- he'd show a certain scar-faced hunter just how it was done. But for now, he felt pleased with the progress he was making on his training. At the moment, though, he wondered how things would go- he had asked Marcus for a bit of help, and the latter offered to go a couple rounds to see he measured up*
Edgar: *thinking about how most of the time, Marcus was at the reception desk, balancing the books and booking fights for the pro members*
Marcus: *heads over to the ring, starting to strap on his gloves*
@ Edgar: Hope I didn't keep you waiting..?
Edgar: *turns and sees Marcus heading his way *
@ Marcus: Not really.
Marcus: *climbs into the ring*
@ Edgar: Been a while since I did this. I hope I'm not too rusty..
Edgar: @ Marcus: .... I wonder though- can you see all right without your glasses?
Marcus: @ Edgar: Hmm? Oh, you noticed? Well, I have them on for paperwork and such. I can see well enough, I just hope you're eager.
Edgar: @ Marcus: No doubts there. *gets to a stance*
Marcus: @ Edgar: Just remember- this won't be so much about winning or losing, but seeing how your skills currently stand. I feel I should warn you, though *gets into a balanced stance*- don't take me lightly.
Edgar: *he wanted to respond at first, but as he saw Marcus in his stance, he felt the latter's subtle glare boring into him. But no point in stopping now*
The thought of Marcus stepping into the ring was something I wanted to address for a while, so when this idea came to mind, it fit like a glove. Don't know when I'll start, but the 2nd part is a work I want to do, among others.
