K and Whiff

Donna and Erin were All-American softball pitchers for State U…Donna stood 5’9” and was the power pitcher of the team…Erin was only 5’4” and threw more junk than Donna’s heat…both were 4.0 chemistry majors and loved their school…

The two best friends were very popular with their teamates, although this year they have had some problems with the new freshmen players…they were extremely jealous of the attention Donna and Erin got…Magazine covers, tv interviews and the like…Everything they did drove the freshmen nuts…

One night around 8 Donna and Erin were walking back from practice when they saw a light on in the softball offices…

“Erin why is that light on? Didn’t coach leave?” asked Donna

“Yeah about 10 minutes ago…” replied Erin

“Look there is someone in there…Something is wrong” Donna said looking perplexed…

“Let’s go check it out then partner…”replied a grinning Erin…

They ducked back into the locker room and emerged as “K” and “Whiff”…State U’s resident heroines…

Their costumes resembled a softball uniform…Tight White Jerseys and masks, Blue spandex Shorts and White Tights…Blue boots with a white stripe down the side (Resembling stirrups) completed the ensemble…They both wore their blonde hair in a ponytail…

Donna had a Bold Blue backwards “K” across her chest, while Erin had “Whiff” spelled out in blue cursive across hers…

Being a chemistry major had its advantages for the talented duo…they have created everything they use to fight crime in the school’s lab…

Donna was armed with 2 satchels of 10 hollowed out softballs…The balls are filled with a potent anesthetic making them extremely light and easy to throw…They have a little charge that is wired to explode when the balls hit their target…the gas is released when the balls explode knocking it’s intended victim out quickly…When necessary Donna whips them at her victims as if she was pitching in a game…Very fast and impossible to dodge…

Erin has 2 large atomizers on either side of her utility belt…One is filled with a similar spray to what Donna has in her softballs…The other with a truth serum that she uses on captured criminals to make them confess…Donna doesn’t believe in wasting space with truth serum…

“Not my problem what they did, if we’re here they’re obviously guilty” she always said…that’s why she fills both her satchels with the gas bombs…

Where as K rifles blistering underhand pitches at her victims, Whiff has deadly accuracy with her atomizers…She takes her time before firing…Being a junk ball pitcher, she can hit anything from 60 feet away…And the closer she gets the better her aim…Bottom line, she rarely misses her mark…

The two heroines carefully entered the athletics building…Carefully they tiptoed down the hallway…

“Be on your toes Whiff…” whispered K…

They saw the light on in the softball offices…Peering through the window and saw a tall athletic woman dressed in a black catsuit…With high heeled boots, she stood close to 6’…She had what looked like a bat leaning against the file cabinet she was looking in…Across her chest was a bat stitched onto her costume…

“Jeez she is huge” whispered Whiff…K motioned for Whiff to keep quiet and follow her in the door…They were going to need to surprise the intruder if they wanted to take her without conflict…As Whiff walked through the door one of her atomizers clanked against the door…The woman heard the noise picked up the bat and whirled around…

“K and Whiff I presume…State U’s prized protectors…I’ve heard so much about you…” said the mysterious woman…She was pointing the bat like a gun at them… “Hands up and not a move, or I will show you what my little toy can do…”

Whiff reached for her atomizer of gas but the woman peeled off a round from the bat…a baseball shot out of the bat whizzing by her shoulder shattering the window behind her…both girls slowly raised their hands…

“I said don’t move!” yelled the woman…

“Who are you? What are you doing in here” asked a nervous K…

“I’m Slugger and I am to here find out some info on some of your softball team…Specifically Donna and Erin, the team’s star pitchers” replied the woman…

Underneath her mask Whiff’s face felt flush…She had to remain calm as to not reveal her identity “They are the two best players in the nation, what do you want with them?” she asked…

“No more time for questions ladies…Please take off your utility belts and slide them over to me…” ordered Slugger

Having no choice, K nodded to Whiff and they both unlatched their last and only lines of defense…Reluctantly they both kicked them across the floor towards the villain…

They stood in the middle of the room feeling unprotected…Their belts contained everything they use to fight crime…Hand to hand combat was not their forte…

“Well your precious utility belts…I have heard about these…Let’s find out what’s inside.” quipped Slugger as she picked them up…Opening up each compartment, Slugger found extremely strong and sticky athletic tape, scissors, small home plate shaped walkie talkies and other things crime fighting paraphernalia…

“Very impressive ladies…Not sure how these help you fight crime but…well look as this…” Slugger opened one of the satchels on K’s belt…Her eyes grew bigger and she got a big grin on her face…

“What are you going to do with us Slugger?” Asked K trying to distract the villain…

“Nothing for now” replied the villain.

“Great then we will be going now” Whiff said jokingly…

“Freeze Whiff…You’re not going anywhere…” said Slugger Still smiling as she had Whiff in her bat’s sights…Slugger lowered the bat down and grabbed two of the softballs…She inspected the balls carefully, even smelling them at one point…

“These are awfully light…what’s inside of them?” asked Slugger…

“Hard rubber composite and string…That is an official ball Slugger…I would think someone of your obvious athletic stature would know that” replied K in her best poker face…

Slugger said with a confused face “These are what the mighty K uses to fight State U’s most dangerous criminals? Regular old softballs…What do you use Whiff, pine tar?”

“What do we do? If she figures out what those things really are, we are in big trouble…What do we do if the balls explode? What if she uses my truth spray on us…we will be really screwed!” a panicked Whiff whispered to her partner…

“Just calm down, she thiks they are regular softballs…We need her to put them down so we can take her…If the bombs explode hold your breath and run…You don’t want to inhale any of that stuff…Follow my lead” replied a confident K…

She slowly started towards the villain with Whiff right behind her…Once they both pounce on her, they could overpower her…“Slugger why don’t you just put down the balls and we can talk about this. We can help you.”

Knowing that they were up to something Slugger took a few steps back and said “Ladies it is time I circled the bases and we parted ways…I have what I came for and now must leave…it was a pleasure meeting you and I assure you we will met again soon…” She went to pick up her bat when…

“Now” yelled K as she and Whiff lunged towards the villain…But before they could reach her, Slugger rifled both balls at the All-American duo…

As if in slow motion, K tried to dodge the ball like she would a pitch hit right back at her in a game…but it hit her in the right shoulder and exploded into a white cloud that engulfed her…

Whiff tried to side step the ball headed at her but it connected with her left tights clad thigh also exploding on contact…

Slugger backed away from the gas clouds that now encased the heroines with a surprised look on her face… “Holy crap, those things are gas bombs? Lucky I didn’t drop them…” said a relieved Slugger…She had planned on using the balls to keep them off balance until she picked up her bat to fight…this result was much better…

K knew they were in trouble…she had been on the other side of this scene countless times, having caught criminal after criminal with her exploding softballs…but she never imagined the tables being turned…

Her mind was flooded with fear…The gas was taking a rapid toll…her legs gave out and she dropped to her knees… Through her blurred vision K saw Whiff hit the floor face down…She was done…

Trying to fight the effects of the gas, she fell forward onto her stomach…Slugger walked over to her struggling foe and kicked her over onto her back…K flopped onto her back…her arms extended on both sides, her left leg was bent and tucked underneath her straightened right leg…

Slugger now stood over her with a big smile…

“Strike 3 ladies…you’re out…Knocked out that is…” smirked Slugger.

K’s blue eyes fluttered and closed, her head falling to the side…

Slugger placed a tiny microphone in one of the compartments of both girls belts…This way she could track their every move…

She then turned off the lights and walked out of the office and into the night leaving the slumbering softballers to sleep it off…

……..

Head pounding, K began to stir…She was in the exact same spot where she had passed out…she crawled over to Whiff who was still face down arms and legs spread and tried to rouse her…

“Whiff, wake up…Are you ok?” asked K gently rubbing the back of her partners head…

Whiff finally stirred…her green eyes were still blurry…K turned her over and helped her sit up…

“How long have we been out?” moaned Whiff, as she rubbed her throbbing head.

Looking at her watch K replied “About 15 minutes…are you ok?” questioned K

“Well outside of my mouth tasting like spoiled mouthwash my pride’s more damaged than anything else…jeez K that crap packs a wallop…I had no chance to even get a breath once it hit me…” responded Whiff.

K helped Whiff get to her feet…“Me too…I was out pretty quickly…the last thing I remember was Slugger standing over me saying something…Whiff, we have to find out what Slugger is up to…we were careless here…we have to be ready next time…What does she want with us? Let’s change and get back to the dorms and regroup.”

After changing, the humbled duo grabbed their utility belts off the floor and began to walk back to their dorm…

Whiff joked “Well now at least we know what the people you have captured have gone through…”

K laughed shaking her head…“Very funny Whiff…how embarrassing, taken out by my own weapons…I had no idea they were that powerful…And you’re right it did smell awful…But not as bad as the chloroform Foul Ball got me with last month…I had a headache for 3 days after that…I must admit, I’ll take gas over chloro anytime …”

“I dunno K…your stuff is pretty bad…”

K sarcastically shot back “You have never even been chloroformed Erin…how you would you know?”

“Oh no is it time for another ‘I’ve had it way tougher as a Super Hero than you’ lecture? Don’t hate the player K…just because you end up on the business end of unconsciousness way more than me doesn’t make you an expert…it just means you’re easier to catch…sister if there was an All-American Knocked Out team…you’d be the captain.” laughed Erin…

They both laughed out loud as they climbed the stairs of their building…

……..

Sitting in a van across the street Slugger watched and listened to the oblivious heroines talk about their alter egos… She spoke to 4 girls and said “Believe me now? I told you that was them…” The black van sped off…
