Huh... Is this the first time you dropped the F-bomb or something worse than "damn?"
Just curious :D

Two different points of view:
Do not care about me, care about the mission VS I care about my buddies first.
Hugh could have punched Chase (probably) and maybe sacrifice Marco and all this would be over that instant with one death.
But he decided to abandon the chance for his life.
The positive corner of my heart says Jaunt approves (kind of) :)

Softy like me prefers this scenario :D

Not the first time I've gone over the "damn" severity in cursing, but the first time I've put in the F-Bomb, yes!

Marcus is a low-class sort who has not a lot of regard for social nicety, especially when he's feeling particularly ragey.

Once again you analyze the characters the way I intend people to, it makes me pleased! Except for the Jaunt part, who knows what he would have preferred. Is Marco a tool? Is he a life that Jaunt wishes to protect? Would he have preferred the sacrifice to protect the greater 'good'?

All will come in time.

...with you always countering my Jaunt comments the way I want as well.
Because I still cannot decide much about Jaunt and jump between momentarily feelings as the story progresses.
He is mysterious. You are good :)

Very happy to hear it - I hope to clarify a bit more about his personality in this chapter.

This is like in police work when they have an "officer down" scenario. It can be a "no win" situation whether the other officers decide to go after the perpetrator or stop and render first aid. There are no guarantees that either decision the second officer makes will result in a positive outcome.

However, at least both of these burly protagonists are still alive, hopefully, to fight another day. But, Jaunt might not see it that way.

Ever the mystery, him. "... a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma" to quote Winston Churchill once again. (My mother was English.)

You nailed it, what was the right decision? I'm sure when Jaunt gives Hugh the post-fight pep-talk we'll see how 'The Commissioner' sees it.

I'm glad you find him mysterious as I try to make him! I also hope that it isn't overbearing, hahah.

And at the end of the day, Hugh is ust a big old softy.

That seems likely to get him into trouble.
