~ Landing ~

We landed on a curving stretch of blacktop a few miles away. Ravines dove away from the roadside on both sides.
Drops that seemed to go down and down farther than anything in the whole world.
I shook my head. “Why are we here?”
Bhuto looked up at the sky. “This is the only place we could be, Sean. We must reach your father.”
”Oh.” I thought for a second. “You do realize that’s the most pointless, circular answer I’ve ever heard, right? And just for the record, I went to a liberal arts college.”
