    When M’Baku was eighteen and had grown taller than his father and his father’s father, he saw the golden city of Birnin Zana for the first time. The sun was setting over the mountain’s teeth, drawing harsh lines over the huge sculpture of a panther, prowling out of the rock.

    “Hey,” heanswers with a sigh.

    “Hey, Ryan? It’s Griffon," she says hesitantly. “Look, uh. Gavin’s at the ER. We were–”

    Everything he can hear is white noise, muffling her voice.
