You knock on the door of the trailer as you watch a reptile scurry across a nearby window. You hear footsteps approaching and throat sounds. A man holding a cigarette opens the door and tells you to Please wait just a moment.

From inside the trailer, a single dart is fired into your lion-chest. A poison carries itself into your bloodstream and a heavy tar begins clotting your brain-branches. Your body lowers and rises and your lungs collapse as your insides collapse. Your outsides collapse.

Your lion-paws dig into the earth. Your toes are round and bluing.
