Prompt: Formidable

She was quite the formidable opponent, Jason thought with grudging respect.

“Giving up yet?” Erin taunted.

“Not a chance,” he muttered, and bent down.

“You can’t make that,” she said.

“Yes, I can. And you’ll see.”

“I don’t think so. No one could.”

“I can, and I will.”

“That’s ridiculous. You’d have to ricochet off of the side!”

“I know.”

“No way,” she said.

“Just see.” He bent down and made his shot, as quickly and smoothly as ever.

The black 8-ball slowly rolled into a corner pocket. Erin stood there agape.

Jason nodded. “Told ya,” he said.

Victory was sweet.
