Flash Fiction: A New Strategy

“I just found out that they’ll be using the small cage next weekend.”

“Whatever.”

Coach was ready for Kevin’s nonchalant response and fired back, “If catching a shin across the side of your head sounds good to you, then, sure, whatever.”

“Coach, I’m just saying: a fight’s a fight. Right?”

“The smaller cage, by design, will nullify much of your wrestling; this dude you’re facing was a former Muay Thai Champion.”

Before Kevin could question what was next, Coach grabbed a pair of mitts, told his student to meet him on the mats, and devised a new game plan.
