The Prologue finds our protagonist in the future, and he seems to have some magical powers of human ( & animal) connection which allows him to deal with a potentially fatal confrontation in a new way.

🧐 Writer’s Commentary | Confrontation
In this blog post, Omar takes his first stab at confronting his audience. *Gulp* Vulnerability hangovers, here we go…
The bigger theme here is this: The bull is inside of us all, and by fighting it we get locked in a bloody conflict, whereas by accepting it and relating to it, we can find a way out. It is not easy, and that is going to be Maskat’s journey throughout the story.
