Richard turned to me, wearing only the leather pants and the boots. Marcus had asked that they not strip down, said something about saving an old man’s dignity. Bullshit. There was something in the air that I didn’t like, as if Marcus had known what was coming and he was ready.
- Whenever I read the word pants, I immediately think ‘underwear’ and it makes it 100% more hilarious.
- Maybe he’s asking to not strip because it’s silly?
- and because of his solid gold tux
- and isn’t marcus the same age as richard?
- yeah, it’s almost like Marcus knows that a fight to determine alpha involves one of the dying. *headdesk*
Marcus gets to choose which form they fight in. Richard asks Anita to touch him, to grip him.
Anita grabs hold of Richard and his body is full of POWER as he begins to change shape. Anita falls to the ground, certain he’s going to kill her or something, but he stops and remains human.
“How can you stop like that?”
He drew his newly formed hands carefully out of my hands. I shivered as the tips of his claws trailed over my skin.
“Controlling the change is what separates the sheep from the wolves,” he said.
It took me a second to realize he’d made a joke.
Because it was a shitty, nonsensical joke that is only relevant due to the mention of wolves.
Richard asks Anita to touch him if he changes shape.
She can ride the POWER and use it to get the wolves out of here. But she must be careful if she touches him –
as he isn’t human and has a lot of claws and shit. She then asks about his penis.
Raina and Marcus are making what is their potential goodbye. She kisses him and they talk and make actual jokes together. Anita deduces that she is, therefore, evil and planning to kill her.
Marcus raised his clawed hands over his head. He turned in a slow circle. “Two alphas fight for you tonight. One of us will leave this circle alive. One of us will feed you tonight. Drink of our blood, eat of our flesh. We are pack. We are lukoi. We are one.”
Marcus has chosen death and he doesn’t wait around. He straight out launches himself at Richard and cuts him across the stomach. Marcus just keeps on going and Richard does nothing. Anita immediately thinks that Team Marcus are cheating and proposes to shoot all of them. This means that, yes, the evil people are of course evil, and brought a knife to a wolf fight. Sebastian tries to shank Richard through the throat with a silver dagger and Anita makes his head explode with her gun.
Richard and Marcus continue to fight and then Richard rips Marcus’s heart out.
Marcus shuddered. Richard broke away from him, bringing his bloody hand out of Marcus’s chest. He tore the still-beating out of his chest and flung it to the wolves.
Anita begs Richard to murder Raina but he refuses and begins howling all over the place.
“Ride the power, Anita. Ride it or run.”
Richard has a lot of POWER. Anita decides to clutch him as hard as possible – even though he is changing into a fucking wolf.
Honey, why don’t you just go out and play in traffic? It’d be just as safe.
Richard changes into a wolf and Anita doesn’t let go. She gets covered in clear liquid while he rubs his genitals in her face.
Anita is very stunned and says that she will not eat Marcus’s body. Richard, who is a wolf at this point and should be unable to talk, says that she can hunt or go, he doesn’t care.
Richard, you’re a seven foot tall wolf. Why do you have vocal cords?
Anita leaves, with Richard accusing her of not taking in the POWER. She is obsessed with the idea that they are going to eat her, even though she is part of the pack and they wouldn’t dare. She thinks about how all the wolves are eating her fear and is all angry and crap.
So…. this is supposed to be the moment that severs Anita and Richard’s relationship right?
Because it literally didn’t have much impact and all I came away with is that ‘Anita is really stupid’.
So….. is adamantium an alloy?
Random I know, but I watched a documentary on metals. Pure metals are weaker than alloys as the crystalline structure of a pure metal makes it more pliable and likely to break. So is adamantium, an indestructible metal, an alloy then?
