Whatever it was had snuffed it before the team could capture it, possibly hit by a car. Now Owen offered his new teammate the… appendage he was holding up.

The words were spoken in such a calm, unruffled tone that Owen’s head snapped around and he gaped at his assistant.
Jack grinned down at them. “Owen, I had no idea you were so well endowed!”
