You tense up in the face of the much more aggressive man. He smells weakness. But if he approaches directly, why not meet him and his aggression head on? You move forward...

And see his fist rearing back. You move without thinking, just beyond where his reach would be, as if you had done this so many times before. The Dog swipes from the left, but you dodge into and under the blow! You feel the air move from how <span class="mu-i">close</span> it was.
JUST DODGE!>Acquired TAC BAR I (Dodge stray gunfire, weak melee hits, and other minor attacks. Does not work on: actually competent melee fighters, salvoes of gunfire, high explosives, local lynch mob tearing you apart, etc.)
The haymaker goes wild! The Agent snarls. You seize the opportunity to drive your elbow like a railroad spike into his side, trying to knock him down. He grunts without falling and lashes out with a weak kick to your side. It doesn't hurt too hard, but knocks you off-balance just long enough for him to recover.
Disengaged, you try to grab your sharpened rebar, but Uno lunges forward suddenly, puts his hands around your neck, and starts choking->90
<span class="mu-s">"That's enough,"</span> Tres says, with a slam of his briefcase. And the two of you listen, shoving each other away with mutual glares. The Agent's words Resonate with absolute authority.

Tres sighs. "Uno, act like a fucking professional for once in your greaseball life. You're meant to be the face of the operation, but you've got a real ugly expression when you're hitting women."
Rage seethes on Uno's face. He's muttering curses on you and your misremembered mother under his breath. But he can do nothing else under the watchful eye of his partner. (Perhaps his boss?)
"Man's only as good as his word," Tres intones before letting out a rueful laugh. "You can't even rely on your fists to do the talking, so you lost to a broad of all the things. You're done."
Uno goes quiet. Very, very quiet. The silent shame of a man when he has keenly felt the loss of his manhood. The anger, the bitterness. He seems like kind of man who will have his revenge, sooner than later.
Uno reaches into his suit jacket and you tense up once again. Ah, ah too soon...
