This one is interesting. Not sure how I feel about it yet.
Becoming Red by Jess Raven
And all the while, the man who had let death into her house, for her dreaming brain told her the story every time she slept, the man who was supposed to protect her like a daughter, who had loved her mother, cowered, fingers stuffed in his ears. The stylised wolf was a guard over his heart, a mark that kept him from the jaws that took her mother.
Fur brushed against her face and it was the last straw for her terror. She clawed her way into waking, kicking and screaming, breath sawing, skin sweaty with an icy fear. The sheets battled back, winding slippery silk around her limbs and spider-webbing her into a flail of trapped hysteria. Ash was breathing fur in her panic; it was in her mouth, gagging her, muffling her, stifling, killing.
Dog. No sea and feral musk, no coppery tang of blood. Just ... dog.
Her hands wrapped around the massive head pushing against her face and she inhaled on a choked sob. It was her mutt, just her mutt. He lay over her, crushing her chest and rasping the tears from her face every time they fell, until she exhausted her fear in a tirade of jagged breaths and just held him close, a giant teddy bear that didn’t protest when her arms tightened. It was a temporary break, ice thawed, cracking, and giving way to tears that rarely came to fall.
‘Don’t let them get me, pup. Please ...’
