Call me crazy, but there's just something cheering about seeing huge raptors tear into Eraser flesh.
It gets so tiring, this strong-picking-on-the-weak stuff. It was the story of my life -literally- and it seemed to be a big part of the outside world too. I was sick of it, sick of guys like these, stupid and bullying.
Fang felt a cold jolt, then dismissed it. Max wasnÆt dead. He would know, somehow. He would have felt it. The world still felt the same to him; therefore, Max was still in it.

Advanced life-forms, my seweet patootie. Jerks. Both of them.
Fang looked at me, hope in his eyes, and I smirked at him. I save the huge emotional kissy-face for imminent death scenes. This probably didn't qualify.
