Thor finally got a chance to be alone with Bennie Ba after every male, female, and puppy had welcomed him. During the welcoming, he had taken the opportunity to confirm his thoughts about Omar’s pack. Thor knew fighters. There wasn’t one dog here he wouldn’t be happy to have at his side in a situation that demanded bravery. Each member of the pack looked him in the eyes, respectfully, but as equals. He liked that.
Thor knew about Bennie’s past as The Ghost. He wanted to hear more about Shocka Din and his followers, their strengths, and weaknesses. He was also curious about how the hatred had started between the wolf Bennie Ba and timber wolf Shocka Din.
As if reading his mind, Bennie began.
“Wish you were,” Bennie answered as both of them grinned and imagined the outcomes.
Bennie Ba was glad to have Thor with him. There was something about Thor that reminded him of himself. They were drawn to each other and had become good friends in a short time.
They agreed something had to be done to help Omar. Neither wanted to admit their desire for action was really because they were unable to stay idle. Both knew that Omar was a formidable opponent and could handle any situation that might arise.
Bennie and Thor were working on solving their dilemma when Major Diggs walked up and looked at each of them suspiciously.
That's how the hate between Bennie Ba and Shocka Din started. It makes me know how lucky I am to have grown up with so much love from my Ma's and Pa's.
Babee Blue is going to know the same kind of love, between Ma, my K-9 Town pack and me of course.
