Weight’s coming,” the girl says, and whistles something to Pushingar. “We feel it,” Picker says. “I think there’s going to be a big wind,” the girl says. “All the air in here will catch up with the spin. ” And that’s just the way it is. 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. I’m drifting away from her again on air currents, bumping up against small stuff. So many questions, and this girl has reversed roles, making herself a teacher and me a student.

She’s thin and wiry and strong. She tears at the sac until all of my upper body is cold. She makes sounds. I think I understand but my head isn’t locked in yet. 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.
