“We would become a skin for someone darn quick.” He glanced at Zola, the thought of her being turned into a pelt sent his blood boiling.
“Oh…well… that’s very reassuring. What if we traveled on foot by day so that people wouldn’t know the difference, and by night we could run?” Sun Hee offered. She glanced at Deck who nodded his head in approval.
“Good idea, other then, when are we supposed to sleep?” Zola snipped, tears glittering at the edges of her eyes. Yeller tried to shush her. She glared him down as she returned her venomous glare to Benj. Benj recoiled under her burning stare, noting the flush of her cheeks. It was the clothing that bothered her. Packs with changes of clothing they had, but they weren’t designed to be carried by canines. They’d need their clothes, some form of privacy for the girls.
“Another thing,” Sun Hee broke in, “wolves don’t have slitted eyes. Cats do, right Benj?” She had also been watching Nat try to control the wolf. Something told her the dose he and Yeller had been exposed to were different from the rest. Something was wrong. Being a morph of a wolf was wrong in the first place, but something about Nat’s and Yeller’s actions were different, even from their symptoms. She chewed on her lower lip, worry wrinkling her brow.
“I told you guys, these people were messing around with DNA, they could have added anything to the mix, including some cat DNA,” Benj guessed.
“Let’s ask the scientists when we get there. I’m rather inclined to taking that information the painful way if I can. Come on, that weird guy is coming back.” Deck growled, the hair on the back of his neck rising.
