Lone Wolf Tales is a collection of short stories which is a companion to my Lone Wolf Series. It explores several characters in depth, particularly Wil VanLipsig, the Lone Wolf. Available NOW from Amazon!
“Drink this,” the doctor commanded. He handed Wil a large thermal bottle of cold liquid. It was roughly two liters of fluid.
“All of it?”
The doctor nodded, not taking his eyes off Matilda.
“Think of it as a really big shooter. You’re losing a lot of fluid, that replaces it.”
Sighing resignedly, Wil picked up the bottle and drank. In disgust, he spewed, wiping his lips roughly with the back of his hand. “This tastes like lizard piss!”
“You’re an expert on flavors? You’ve sampled some lizard piss, have you?”
“Yeah, as a matter of fact, I have,” he replied testily.
The doctor shrugged. “Chug it, won’t taste it as long.”
“Thanks, you’re a real saint.”
