Bravo was there. He heard Danny scream, tasted the sharpjolt of terror heavy in the air. He came straight for him, sailing like a dark bullet throughthe night. The coyote did not see him coming. Bravo hit him like an arrow, rage pulsingthrough his body.
How dare this wolf-thing harm Danny! The fury was a tangible thing, floodingthrough his veins like a wildfire. He bit the coyote below the mouth, in the soft flesh ofthe neck, where the lifeblood was.
Take away lifeblood, take away life. That was the law of the fight. Bravo hadlearned that in the Arena, but it was an unspoken and silently understood fact ofinstinct. Blood contained life...remove blood, and the enemy would fall.
The coyote yelped and released its hold on Danny. The little boy stumbledbackward, crying, while Bravo drug the dog-thing to the ground, holding it there,second by second, as the life drained from it and the hot, salty blood spilled onto hisface and stained his fur.
Bravo felt nothing but the storming satisfaction of the bite and the devotion to thekill – the mission. This was his job, to protect Danny at all costs, because Nathan wasnot here, and because that is what Bravo was: a protector.
