It is October 28, 1962. The world stands ready to destroy itself; only, there are jaguars. There are magical jaguars, spinning endlessly around the Earth. They work their jaguar magic to avert the Cuban Missile Crisis.

They become angry.

“This is unfair,” growls Ixchel. She’s a jaguar concerned with justice.

“I blame the Mayans,” sighs the jaguar, Chan, who is more concerned with blame.

“If we could only,” says Bahlum. “If we could only —”

He doesn’t finish his sentence. Everyone knows. They experience a moment of solidarity as they spin around the world.

This was not the life the jaguars had expected when they were young and the world was new.
