'Kaze', or Dahler, watches his beloved fighting that big ogre. There is nothing he could do about that, this ogre is bigger than he expected. Attacking now would do nothing but distract Tahira; she would probably be concerned about him and wouldn't be able to defend herself, while she would try to protect him. Sure, if her mind acted like his, where right now nothing matters but her safety.
But he isn't useless on this situation. He notices how brutish the ogre is, and he barks and calls his attention, to make things easier for Tahira. And it works very well, the ogre has his attention towards that wolf for too much time, enough time for Tahira to hit him with her magic. If they keep doing this, that monster will be no threat for them.
However, the big creature took a dagger and came towards the wolf. Dahler is taken by surprise, and he is too close to run or even dodge the incoming attack. There is nothing he could do, so he closes his eyes and expects the worse. He feels blood on his fur, and Tahira screaming, but where is the pain? He opens his eyes and sees her in front of him. She got him for him, for his protection. He looks at her, wishing to help her, to hold her on his arms, and do something about that. But he is just a wolf, a damn cursed wolf.
Suddenly, he feels his body burning. Not by fire or by the pain in his heart. Could it be...he feels that inner pain again, and starts howling loudly, like everytime he changed back. The wolf fur starts to disappear, and his body shifts right there, even before the night. The loud howl becomes a loud scream of pain, until he is Dahler back again, naked, trembling and scared. But nothing of that matters as he sees Tahira bleeding. Covering himself properly he rushes and holds her in his arms. "Oh, I am sorry, I am very sorry, this is my fault", he keeps repeating, trying to forgive himself.
