So this is the Lachlan Region’s one and only Class 3 Jubar.

Bjorn wasn’t as impressed as he had expected to be. He’d built a career around monitoring Jubars, usually Class 1 and 2’s; he’d never seen a Class 3 in person before.

He’s a typical Gen Z. Bjorn resisted clicking his tongue. I don’t know why Grigol was so worked up. “Glassman relocated,” he said. “New gig.”

Roar nodded to himself and in the next breath apologized to the bag in his arm.

Bjorn’s mouth twitched. “What’s in the bag?”

Roar’s dark blue eyes flicked up, guarded.

That came out too strong. “Sorry, er…” Bjorn backed off. He seemed so cocky before. “I-I was curious.”

Unrolling the top of the bag, Roar tipped it to reveal a small plant nestled neatly in downy insulting paper. It had a few pairs of oval leaves and a single fluxuous vine.
