City of Leopards
They built the city of leopards. A thousand tongues and a thousand ears. Each leopard found a place on the plans and lay beside other leopards to form a wall or staircase.
No act of building was every so easy. But now after a thousand years, the people no longer hear breathing. They consider the leopards only as stones.
