THE ORIGIN OF MADAME MANHANDS: PART II
A TALE OF TWO CHILDHOODS
Greetings, most honored reader!
It’s plain that Manhands has had a rough and tough childhood: always in fear of being hunted down by superstitious townsfolk, always having to worry about where the next meal would come from, always worrying about dying from exposure to the elements. She’s faced this and a whole lot more.
Yet despite these hardships, Manhands benefited from some unknown sponsor who helped her out at key moments in her life, and this has made the difference for her, the difference between life and death.
Now contrast Manhand’s arduous childhood with Nikki and Bryan’s childhoods (see HERE for a taste of that!): Bryan and Nikki, the pampered Nouveau-riche, stepped-up nobility-wannabe brats of the ex-con marauder Iron Dragon. Can Nikki even begin to understand what Manhands has endured? And even if Nikki revealed her true identity, would the two even be able to find a common language? Doubtful.
More interestingly, Manhands is now entertaining Nikki in her private quarters. What would she think if she knew one of the rich were right there with there? Perhaps we’ll find out soon. In the meanwhile, most honored reader, let’s see what else the leader of the Crimson Cape Gang reveals of herself and her mysterious masters.
Until next time
With Cognescentii blessings,
