“Okay, what’s the good news?” Miami was not in the mood for riddles or games of any kind.
“That was the good news.” Bertucio picked up on Miami’s mood and softened his voice a bit so as to not irritate him any further.
“So…” Aiko blinked rapidly in confusion. “What is the bad news?”
“Uh, well…” Bertucio scratched his head, trying and failing to formulate a way to say it without worrying them. “That’s not all that’s out there…”
