Sins of the Alpha Male

The kid yelps as the man grabs his hand, hard, compressing the bones, and says, "Yeah, is that how you did it?"

The woman walking with them says, warily, "Take it easy, dude."

The man stares down the kid for a second more, the kid, like a good pack member, not meeting his eyes, and then lets go, "What, I didn't hurt him, did I?"

The kid, wincing, shakes his hand as they continue walking, the tension easing: "No."
