Bear put his hand on his hip and sashayed a little, which looked ridiculous.
Mac shoved him. “I will kill you.”
Bear squared his shoulders and smirked. “You could try.”
Mac weighed the pros and cons. Bear certainly lived up to his nickname—broad, strong, straining the damn fatigues—but Mac knew his teammate’s weaknesses. He estimated he could take him in about five minutes, but he’d probably get a few broken bones in the process. He relaxed his stance, ready to go toe to toe with Bear, but Spider put a hand between the two men.
“The kid’s crying,” Spider pointed out helpfully.
Mac shot his friend a shocked look. Did Spider really think the best thing for the poor kid in the bed was to have some idiot go in and tell him everything would be okay? “That doesn’t mean he needs one of us to talk to him,” he asserted.
Bear crossed his arms over his impossibly broad chest. “You saw what they did, heard what he said. One of us should say something. Threaten to go kill someone or something.”
“We already killed everyone who hurt him,” Spider said evenly. “No one left to shoot.”
