This interlude was written from the point of view of Bitch's dog Brutus.

He watches as Master deals with her Scentless team leader. They then go for a walk.

They are accosted by a human child and it's mother.

His Master takes him to a place with a lot of other dogs which smells of urine and fear and blood, dog fighting ring. He is sent into the ring against another dog. His master uses her power on Brutus making him grow large and cows his opponent. She turns him loose on all the people there, no killing but a lot of mutilation.

She tells the people that she will not allow any more such rings to take place. She lets the humans leave and saves as many dogs as she can. After a long moment of silence for the dogs they couldn't save Brutus hears sirens and alerts his master.

They leave with the living dogs and best of all Brutus gets to lull his head out the window and feel the wind on his face!

  1. Sorry if it wasn’t clear. Brutus isn’t the clearest of narrators. 😉

    She took the living dogs out to a truck and lashed the cages together there. Then she went back inside to mourn the ones who had died. When she was driving off at the end, she had the rescued dogs in the back of the truck. - Excerpt from Hive 5.2
