Layla has a temper.
Where Serena is more likely to pull on a mask and hide her feelings until later, Layla is the type to react immediately. Sometimes with a sharp retort. Other times with a raised fist.
Big things come in small packages, or so they say, and given Layla’s explosive moments, Serena believes it.
There are some things Layla can brush off with no trouble. She does have her sore spots, but sometimes, Serena can bring her back with a soft word.
Other times, Serena doesn’t bother. She feels as insulted as Layla does and she has to admit, she enjoys watching Layla teach imbeciles a lesson.
Layla’s small, but she’s fierce. Insulting her abilities, for whatever reason, is quick to incite a challenge.
Layla taking down opponents twice her size gives Serena a quiet thrill. The fierce look in her brown eyes makes Serena tremble. She has to resist the urge to drag Layla into the nearest alley and pin her against a wall.
Yes, Layla has a temper. She also has restraint when she needs it. So it’s a good thing Serena helps balance her out.
