He pushed these thoughts away as quickly as he could. Ike was all he was concerned about; it didn’t matter if he himself died in this fall.
The commander had managed to slit the throat of the laguz that had tackled him, and he now kicked the corpse free and let go of the knife he’d held, free-falling through the air towards the ground that waited far below. He had yelled at first, but now he was pale-faced and silent, knowing that screaming would get him nowhere.
