A Kit Colbana World Short Story

This is a short story. It is only a short story.

Doyle. Human. Tiger. Aneiri. Alone.

Always on the outside, even in a clan. Now, as his dominance grows and threatens to spill out in a wave of violence, he might have to choose between staying with the only family he’s ever known, striking out to lead a solitary life or spill blood of those loyal to the clan…and the few he calls family.

As I hit the glass, Char’s yelp of pain hit my ears and splintered through me like napalm. Landing in a crouch, I took Scott’s legs out from under him.

“Okay, you big asshole,” I said, rising to stare down at him. “You wanted me? You found me.”
