Fight in 108

A hammer-fist careened down onto the man’s shoulder and it sent a shockwave through his body, taking the wind out of him. Still, when the thug shot a kick out at the man’s gut, the hapless victim managed to jump back. Unfortunately, the backs of his thighs hit the corner of a table, and he flipped backward gracelessly onto his shoulder blades and twisted into a heap. The thug took his time walking around the table to deliver the coup de grace. Just as he was stepping up to his victim, the bleeding man, looking dead already, kicked out and caught the thug in the side of the knee. The attacker fell unceremoniously, cracking his head on the table’s edge.
