Flash Fiction Friday: Together



Together

He peers into the distance, listening to the approaching hounds. He thinks I don't notice. The injury isn't so bad my senses are off though.
He needs to move, leave me behind. I’m slowing him down. Worse, I can't shift and heal while he watches.
"Leave me."  
"We live or die together." I wince as he applies pressure to the wound. "Just shift."
My world slows and every painful breath batters my ear drums. He knows. "What?"
"What are you? Fox? Lynx? I'd recognize another wolf's scent." He's prosaic, matter of fact.
"Fox," Wolf...that solves the mystery of his scent.

  18. I love Paranormal in general but I do love shifters the most. This was fun and I liked the surprise that the wolf already knew his companion was a shifter.

    Nice tease....but we need more now.lol

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
