THE SCROLL OF GREATNESS {part 13}

** An awesome fight scene!

THE SCROLL OF GREATNESS [part 13]
a Sherlock Hong story by Don Bosco

What I saw was so amazing that I had to shake my head a few times and pinch myself, to make sure that I wasn't dreaming.
Remember the old woman that I met outside the mansion, where the Scroll of Greatness was on display? The one who was blind?
I couldn't believe my eyes.
There she was, right in the middle of everything, beating off the thugs and keeping them away from me, armed with just a Chinese folding fan!
"Hyah! Hwah! Hooi!" she grunted as she delivered each blow, moving elegantly like a performing acrobat from some great Teochew opera troupe, her fan darting about so quickly that it was a furious blur.
She might have been blind, but she wasn't handicapped. The thugs didn't stand a chance!
In the distance, I saw Aisha running towards us, with my father, Constable Flint and two Indian patrolmen.
Dr. Woo didn't like any of this. He hurried to the basket and pulled out the wooden box.
And then he dashed off with it, into the crowd!
