The Wolf Pack

The Wolf stopped, the others dragging their labouring mounts to a halt a fraction of a second after him. He turned and surveyed his men, beckoning to one who then forced his gasping horse closer.
Jayon looked speculatively around him getting his bearings. Finally he ran a hand through the dark hair that had already begun to streak with grey and turned back.
“Bend in the river up ahead. She’ll not get far.”
“And the horse injured,” he mused. “Alright, get those beasts moving. Spread out and cut her off. There’ll be a pretty reward for this one.
“If we don’t get our necks wrung,” somebody muttered.
Wolf grinned. It was like watching a warg try to smile – all teeth and no humour. “Ah, but that’s the beauty of it. We’ve a powerful employer this time lads. Someone who could...shall we say…turn a blind eye.”
“You trust him?”
“About as much as I trust you. No, I’ll put my faith in my blade. I think you’ll find a man with a cut throat will turn a blind eye to just about anything. After we get the money of course.” He turned away, signalling an end to the conversation and kicked his horse viciously on. The others followed, spreading out to cover as wide an area as possible. Wolf’s mouth twisted into an almost-smile. The best part had just begun – the hunt.
