As we fall the short distance outboard, “down,” the air around us not only gets colder, but also begins moving even more violently than the breeze over the channeled river. —and we’re being dragged over the floor, no matter how we try to hold on. Not strong enough yet to lift us up and flip us over.
You should know better than to get that stuff in your eyes. ” Water. I realize how thirsty I am and think back on the dripping condensation—how I should have caught it on my tongue, lapped it up. ” “Where? ” A sour expression. ” “I get lonely,” she says with a sniff. Somehow, I doubt that’s the whole truth. ” “Others, not like you and me. Well, maybe a little. ” This expands my thinking to a painful degree.

There was something wonderful before this. What was it? ” The little one’s still tugging and pushing, dancing on the frozen deck. I try to move but I’m uncoordinated.
