Dogs of the Never Never : Calling Shotgun

This was where things started to get messy.

Jon wasn’t sure quite how to ask if Hunter had the same ability to travel at high speeds as the Dogs did. He settled for just asking her if she wanted a lift. He was relieved when she said yes, not because he really wanted to be stuck in a car with a ghost, but because it made a little more human somehow. Some times she seemed less human than the Dogs and it was unnerving that something that looked so normal could be so oft.

Well, not that she looked normal most of the time. She tended to only solidify the portions of her body that she needed to interact with the world. Which mean he spent most of his time hanging out with a pair of eyes and a few fingers that were just a shade thicker than smoke.

All things considered it was easier than the Dogs which solidified when they felt like it, without warning or reason. Except for Hunter’s Dog, Jon has never seen the shadow darken at all.
