The wolf charged through the thick branch trapping the men, and lifted it off. Georg and Ulrich instantly got to their knees. Georg took his gun and shot a bullet to the starry night sky.
The wolves took off howling in misery and frightened from the abrupt noise of the bullet.
The two men, once foes, now allies in survival get to their feet and shake hands. They had believed this moment would have been with their own men saving them. But the true savior was their friendship.
Partnership? What are you talking about? I was the one who did all the work...
Now that right there was great partnership!
And you never admit when you're wrong.
Two men walk back through the winter night, once again, this time not as enemies, but companions.
