Zak kneels by Taras side, who was still wincing in pain, Youre hurt.... Why did you block me off Tara? A hurt expression on his features.
She looks him in the eyes and puts on an unconvincing brave face, "Because getting everyone out of there alive was more important than a little scratch..." She groans in pain.
Zak looks at the wound and makes a noise deep in his throat of a mixture of revulsion and rage. "What?" Doc and Drew ask together. Zak quickly gets her to her feet, ready to bring her to the med room on the airship.
Doc, Doyle, Drew, and Fisk don't see any injuries from the front but when they see her back, they gasp in horror. Tara's "little scratch" was a deep gash across her back and blood now covered her back and soaked her shirt. The flow of blood was already starting to slow though, due to her swift healing as a shifter and her own healing ability besides that.
"Whoa... That's not a scratch..." Doyle says wide eyed.
Zak says t

Zak and Tara stand silently in the bridge, the door to the outside wide open. Both of them hold M12AARs and they have a bag full of various gagets strapped to their changing harnesses as well as a pack of weapon augmentations and ammo strapped to their legs. They wear clear green tactical glasses.
Suddenly Mary's voice announces through the com in the visors, "We're over the drop zone in five... four... three... two... one..."
Zak and Tara jump out of the door and dive towards the outline of Van Rook's compound. For a brief moment, Zak lets the rush of the air clear his head before he shakes it away and manuevers closer to Tara.
Tara carefully adjusts her posture to bring herself closer to Zak as she watches the numbers flashing across her visor. Her and Zak's visors' display their speed, altitude, the angle at which they were falling compared to the ground, and it high lights the 30x30 ft sensor blind spot on the roof of the compound.
"This is going to

song qoute Phil Collins- No Way Out:
There's no way out
of this dark place,
No hope. No future.
I know I can't be free.
But I can't see another way
Oh and I can't face another day.
After finalizing the plans with the rest of the group, Tara plodded down the hall to one of the extra rooms on the airship. Dead on her feet and fatigued, she drags herself through the door and collapses onto a bunk. A sigh escapes her lips as soon as she hits the matress, and she pulls her zipper hoodie off in an effort to get more comfortable.
The sound of Daemon clomping down the hall to Zak's room fills the silence and soon fades, followed closely by three other footsteps that Tara recognizes through the door as Fisk, Komodo, and Zak's.
As Zak drew closer to her door, Tara senses his sorrow and whispers symmpathetically, "Do you wish to talk about it?"
Zak's foot falls stop just outside her door and the others continue on. The door beeps and slides open to reveal Zak
Shifters ch 9: Wolfie's UncleSince I really havent been updating as often as I should, this chapter is an apology for my readers. Thanks for not losing patience with me!Shifters ch 9: Wolfie's Uncle by Sangheili-Girl
As much as I wish that I did, I don't own the Secret Saturdays, but I do own Tara and Daemon.
Chapter 9: Wolfies Uncle
In the forest south of Ashford, Zak, who is in his waheela form, leads the group to the Saturday airship. Tara follows above in griffin form while Daemon keeps up with Zak's quick pace in his bladerith form. (the giant lizard in chapter six) Mary rides on Daemon's back since the others were moving too fast to keep up on foot, and Zak and Tara's forms were not large enough yet to carry a full grown human on their backs. Fisk follows through the trees.
Just as the light of dawn slowly began to peek above the horizon, Zak, Daemon, Fisk, and Mary all seem to materialize from the shadows and they enter the clearing where the airship was landed. Daemon helps Bovin off of his back and changes back. Zak follows suit.
