Valentine’s Day has many wondering the best way to a girl’s heart. Flowers? Chocolate? Well, for one particular lady, the answer is a knock-down-drag-out full on brawl. I don’t expect Penny and Zero to have the same relationship Penny and Eko had, but my hope is to help them cultivate their own brand of companionship and camaraderie. And I know the best way to do that is by encouraging my little David to battle against Goliath.
The roles will be reversed in short order, but for now Zero is severely overmatched.
Penny is not the doting older sibling that Eko was. She makes little accommodation for Zero when they’re wrestling across the carpet of their Coliseum.

“She has no idea how big I’m going to get, does she?”
It’s only the beginning for these two, but it’s exactly the raucous beginning I hoped for. Here’s to all the battles, romps, and love to come!
