First Word Challenge

So, here I am with my first word challenge ever. This one comes from my friend Jennifer and I hope I raised to the expectations (evethough it's a short one). You can write a story for yourself, too.
WORDS: femur, bookcase, surface, hay, system and vinegar
(Pro mé české kamarády: femur (kost stehenní), knihovna, povrch, seno, systém, ocet)

………I sat down and growled. My whole leg was throbbing in pain and it was all because of Wolfe. From all the times I felt like putting vinegar into his beer, I came the closest that evening. He'd sent me to investigate an old factory hall, where he believed was hidden our murder weapon. It wasn't. However, I found something - a short guy with very quick legs and a lot of booze in his system.
………At first, I tried to reason with him, but when he kicked my femur with a strength I didn't expect him to have, I started acting. As a starter, I gave him my best uppercut, but when he didn't crumble, I finished him off with a simple jab to the guts. He stumbled and landed with a loud crash. I decided to leave after that, before some of his loaded friends would've started to look for him. I even called him an ambulance from the nearest phone booth, so in case he had an internal bleeding, he wouldn't suffer.
………And here I was, sitting behind my table with an aching thigh, miserable mood and an unmistakable lust to punch Wolfe. He was standing next to the bookcase, trying to decide which book to read, completely oblivious to my pain. I looked down at my leg as if I was able to look through the material of my pants to see the blood creating a nasty bruise right under the surface of my thigh. I couldn't, so I decided to go upstairs and get some sleep. It was exactly eleven thirty-five, when I hit the hay.

Oh, you definitely did Nat :D But I thought it was supposed to be a drabble, hon.
