The two boys looked on in horror. Cole, the Arcanine boy, and the younger of the two, nearly snapped his jaws at Lucy, to bite. Cinder, however, yanked him back before he had the chance. Smacking his little brother, he growled, "Stop it, doofus!! You almost killed our dad by doing that!" With a more casual (but no doubt shaken up) voice, Cinder spoke to Lucy, but also toward Bay, all hostility seemingly over. "Wh-what are you talking about...? Dad wouldn't kill us... He said this juice would 'make our claws and teeth lethal'... I..." The boy seemed lost for words.
Amy walked beside Lucy, replying to the boys, "I'd do as she says..." Part of her felt bad for the boys. Did they really deserve to lose their father? They seemed to be completely unaware. Amy wondered if her anger toward the family was really her own... What if Blade's rage was starting to affect her? She couldn't really understand. For now, she just followed Lucy, even reaching up for her hand.
Cinder followed behind, Cole reluctantly following behind him, led by hand by his older brother.
