The first of those to greet him were Twele and Mantag’s wife, Gabanthate. They embraced and rejoiced in seeing one another again after so many years. “Yes,” Gabanthate said, before Keeney could even ask his question. “Mantag did receive your letter. The game warden read it to him. It made him very happy. He never let go of that letter. He held it next to his heart.

Keeney walked over to the old man and wrapped his arms around him. They both waited for a moment and then the rumbling began, gentle at first, then undulating.
