Brother Togo stopped in the middle of bagging his groceries and tilted his head. He could hear a strange sound, just on the edge of his hearing, and it was in pain. Something was wrong, very wrong.
Father Fen-Lei glanced at him curiously as he loaded the conveyor belt. "What is it?"
Maiga shook his head. "I don't know. I think--"
He nodded his head in thanks and rushed from the grocer's.
The father shook his head, offered a quick prayer to Bast, and resumed unloading their cart.
