in Leng...

Indelicate blades articulating blood-magic before he can argue. Three more through the opening. A step in, they howl. Blades forward, one overheard. Ready. Hungry.

Dogs leaping.

Gunfire. A head becomes a blood-blossom. A chest is ripped open by lead. Third takes two shots in the abdomen.

Slab’s bigger. Wider. No less bloody.

Drifting smoke.

Faces of men and canine savage, blood for blood.
