His comment about dogs didn’t even faze Erik at that point. With Hydd’s body nowhere to be found and no immediate threat to be seen, he was not as worked up by simple comments. Though, he had no idea what Hydd was and if he could regenerate his body or anything of that nature. It was possible he could still come after his wife and daughter. Erik kicked himself for bringing Allorah there instead of taking Ava with him. If they had left while Hydd was out for the count, Hydd would have no way of following them or knowing even what direction their home was in. Though…
Erik smiled faintly. “If there is truly no way to kill you…”
He walked outside, practically just ignoring everyone else in the house around him. He walked several paces away from the house and looked down at the ground. “Perfect.” He turned towards the house. “Allorah,” he called.
Just then, the young, blackish wolf bounded outside toward him, wagging her tail. He smiled at her. “Hey, sweetie.” He looked at the ground again. “Do your dad a favor…” He crouched and glanced at Allorah to make sure she was watching him before he suddenly shook his hand back and forth on the dirt. Allorah bounced at his hand and he pulled it away in time not to be squished. However, she started digging furiously in the spot. She paused a few times to sniff as if looking for something, but then continued digging. When the hole was about two feet deep, Erik stepped towards her.
“Allorah!” She looked up, wagging her tail. He smiled despite himself. “Go find mom,” he told her. She set off immediately to do as was told.
Erik turned and grinned at Hydd. “Hope you have fun in there,” he said. He dropped Hydd into the hole and started shoving dirt over him.
