Six Paragraph Sunday - Khyff

For Women Only
Here are six paragraphs from the book For Women Only. The hero is Khyff Antonello. In this scene, he's gone to visit his brother in the hospital. Senth is in critical condition following a bigoted attack because he is "only" half human. Khyff discovers his brother's doctor wants to disconnect him from life support. The doctor is a Tyran, a sort of satyr-like creature who isn't human either, and Khyff is beginning to suspect that neither humans nor Tyrans care very much whether his brother lives.

“What are you saying? That you’re going to give up? You’re going to let my brother lie there and bleed to death? So what if he needs therapy or he’ll have scars? My brother is a fighter, doctor. He’ll live.”
“Mr. Antonello, there comes a time when the quality of life must be a consideration. One must weigh the cost of continued treatment when it becomes apparent that all indications--”
“Enough!” Khyff swept out both hands, startling the Tyran doctor into silence. “There is never going to come a time when I won’t consider my brother’s life worth fighting for, Dr. Nhyx.” He jabbed a finger against the clipboard the man held. “Is this some kind of Tyran thing? I know for damn sure it isn’t human. Humans fight for life no matter what! You can take those papers and shove them right up your ass. Don’t ever talk to me again about adjusting life support. Your job is to keep my brother alive and make him better. Are we clear?”
Khyff felt the gaze of the other men in the room. Out of the corner of his eye, he caught Sylk’s smile.
The doctor started to speak, then closed his mouth. “Very well, Mr. Antonello.” He handed the clipboard to the nurse. “Dispose of these. We’ll start researching ways to clot the blood and slow down the infection.”
“Good. Thank you for doing your job, Doctor. I’d like a minute alone with my brother.”
