Marcus Apted was snapped back to reality by cold water hitting his face. He wrenched and gasped loudly in his folding chair.
"Good morning, Mr. Apted." Lady Donna said, pitching away a plastic bucket still dripping water.
"Bitch!" another female voice near Apted called out, that he recognized as Paula's. She was sitting directly to his right, also soaking wet. He realized they were in a boxing ring and that standing next to Lady Donna was Panther Woman.
"Marcus Apted!" Panther Woman exclaimed. "Do you recall what I said I'd do if I ever saw your two-timing ass again!"
"Hi, Janie..." Apted said, knowing exactly what Janie had in mind. "Beat me up?"
"For a start!"
"Now, I wanted to turn you two over to the police, but Panther Woman talked me out it. Apparently, there is unsettled business between you and Panther Woman."
Panther Woman looked at Paula. "And this one, did you pick her up at cheerleader tryouts at Blake Mitchell University?"
Paula swung wildly at Panther Girl, who leaned out of the way and landed a hard punch to Paula's jaw. This was the first time Apted saw that all four of them were in boxing gear.
The apprentice thief toppled backward, caught by the quick moving Lady Donna, who placed the unconscious girl back in her chair.
"Instead, we're going to beat both of you up. I'll be getting my cardio workout with...?"
"Paula." Apted said.
"And I will deal with you!" Panther Woman declared.
When Janie Hawkins joined Justice Force, she encountered Marcus Apted while foiling his plot to heist the Kendrick Diamonds. Apted did manage to seduce Janie into a two year affair, strictly against Justice Force regulations. Apted knew the breakup was all his doing. Accurate rumors of his sexual conquests at the Amazonia Boxing Club got back to Janie, who launched a vase at her lover's head. Apted ducked, grabbed Janie's arm and pulled her into a farewell kiss. He slugged the crime fighter on the jaw, putting her out cold. He was long gone when she woke up on the couch, a red rose by her side.
The actual fight didn't last long.
Standing in one corner with Panther Woman working him over, Apted knew his just deserts were being served. On the other side of the ring, Lady Donna was trouncing a helpless Paula, but was taking her time.
"Janie, I admit I fucked around," explained Apted when Panther Woman let up on her assault. "I just need other women!"
Panther Woman adjusted her right fist, like she was sighting a cannon.
"I mean...you knew...I was a bad guy going in..."
When Apted's head cleared, he was in the middle of the ring, standing back to back with Paula. She made soft "uuufffs" each time Lady Donna hit her.
"How about it, Donna?" Panther woman called out.
"In a minute," Donna replied and planted a long kiss on Paula's lips. "Okay!"
Apted watched as Panther Woman measured out the knock out punch. "Janie...I..."
"Be quiet Marcus! I've been waiting a long time for this! Let's do it, Donna!"
The blows stretched the thieves out stiff. They drifted slowly to the canvas, legs giving way until Paula and Apted were slumped back to back, heads lolling, out cold.
Apted spent the night with Panther Woman and Lady Donna introduced Paula to the marvels of girl love.
Panther Woman's body consumed Apted. She would never admit to it then, but Janie was happy to have his cock in her again. The slow, strong build up to orgasm flashed through her body. His embrace felt like home.
Late the next morning, Paula and Apted were roused from deep sleep and brought to Lady Donna's office.
"We've decided you've paid your dues for this crime, so we won't be turning you two in." Lady Donna said. "But I need to ask you both a question."
Apted pulled his face in aggravation. He knew what the question was going to be. Paula only smiled wildly at Lady Donna.
"Have you two seen the error of your ways?"
Apted stared blankly at Lady Donna. "Yes, I know what I did was wrong..."
"Oh yes I have!!!" chirped Paula, with newly found devotion.
"That's what I figured. We have to keep the location of this safe house a secret, so to ensure that...Panther Girl?"
Panther Girl raised a black jack behind Paula and Apted. "Good night, love birds!"
Apted dropped to the floor, unmoving. Paula remained standing, out on her feet.
" Just one more light tap, Janie." suggested Lady Donna.
Panther Girl brushed hair away from the back of Paula's right ear and gently thumped the area with her black jack. Paula lay on the floor next to Apted.
Lady Donna and Panther Woman carried the unconscious pair to Apted's bedroom and dumped them on his bed.
"Think we should have turned them in?" Lady Donna asked.
"No," Panther Woman responded. "The sex was worth it."
"It sure was," Lady Donna agreed, pulling the blanket over the out cold crooks.
