33 v) At the head of an ostentatious flight of stairs

At the head of an ostentatious flight of stairs stands a massive set of double doors, crafted of fine, ancient oak, with filigree of silver veined throughout. Both Rivera and Rufus stop before it, turn to face the gang.

“Boss is through here,” says Rufus.

“You’re not coming with us?” Shyan asks.

Rivera shakes her head. “Boss likes to talk to clients alone.”

“What do you think, Abia?” asks Shyan.

“This is true,” she says, her tone suggesting no elaboration. The floating, glowing sphere takes a couple of turns around her head.

The musicians throw open the double doors. Within, an enormous throne room, and a thick, wet, unbearable heat.

“Good luck,” says Rivera, closing the door behind her.
