slow breath. “I don't want to say it, but I think we need to get past the serpent and
inside that scary city. We have to stop Loki from collecting more monsters, even if
it, you know, kills us, or something.” That was a lot of words for Jon. I guess he
was nervous. Actually, nervous didn't cover it. Terrified was more like it. Also
