“Your highness?” A young man stepped into view, hands twisting nervously and sleek black jackal’s ears poking out of the mess of tousled black hair on his head. “How is the pain?”

“I was stabbed,” Raiden muttered. “How do you think the pain is?”

Clear green eyes blinked, and then the kid – early twenties, if Raiden had to guess – lifted one shoulder in a shrug. “I… uh, I’m an embalmer, sir. I can’t say as I know, and most of the people I work with are too dead to ask.”
