Chapter 22 of 23
Lucky's Point of View
- Storm confronts Blade on the frozen river, and the two fight. While watching the two Fierce Dogs battle, Lucky notices Alpha sneaking up on Storm and Blade. Alpha jumps on Storm, trying to bite her neck. Lucky then realizes his duty, jumps towards Alpha, and knockes him off of Storm. He and Alpha fight, and Lucky tricks Alpha into thinking he is weak, catching Alpha by surprise. However, Alpha tricks Lucky back by pretending to be defeated and then throwing himself at Lucky. Lucky throws Alpha off his back, causing Alpha's neck to break. Alpha is dead. Exhausted, Lucky comes up the river bank, and Bella licks his wounds as he watches Storm and Blade battle. Having had enough, Storm breaks the ice, and she and Blade fall into the freezing water. Storm survives and swims back up, while Blade sinks and drowns. The Fierce Dogs are shocked of Blade's death, and Dagger leads the away, having been defeated. Whine, who hid during the battle, tries to follow him, but Dagger rejects him. Sweet and Sunshine then threaten him, calling him a traitor, and he runs away. The ice cracks under Storm and she falls back into the water. Lucky tries to grab her, but he's too weak and tired. All the dogs rush to help Storm, and Lucky is confident that she will survive.
