If anyone else had taken a moment to look around, they would have seen only a dirty rooftop. But for Jimmy and Oscar, it had been sanctuary. The streets had spit them out and each had found his way here. Two mighty kings surveying the landscape of their realm.

Jimmy had only left his abusive home a year ago, while Oscar was a veteran from another age. Their friendship smoothed the rough edges that life can cause. The day Jimmy found Oscar’s body on the rooftop, cold and stiff from the frigid night was the day he left Sanctuary forever.
