I haven't asked him anything yet. This morning I couldn't ask him questions. He was curled up in the blind, huddled in the blanket and blinking like a frightened animal, white as death. His very de fenselessness made me feel shy. It seemed wrong to question him. I nearly found myself bathing his hurt feet like I did Stewart's, but I stopped myself in time. There are so many questions. Why can't he bear the light? Why is his skin so spongy-looking and pale? Why does he speak so strangely and in that whispery voice?
Of course not," she says scornfully. We are both silent for a moment. "I drank some water out of the lake last night," I say at last. "So did Stewart. " It is too dark for me to see her face, but I can see 44 the sudden stillness of her shape against the light on the lake. "If you get sick from poison in the lake," she says in a low voice, "you know we can't look after you. " She stands up quickly, and then she is gone. DIANA I leave him and his dog in the blind. It's quite dark by now and I stumble on the trail from the lake.
We're very short of water. " I don't know. I am not even sure what rain is. Of course I do not tell her this. "There's some water in the tank," I tell her. "How are your feet coming along? " She is asking me how much longer I am going to stay. "Still a little tender. " She reads my mind. " "It's all right. " Perhaps they are depending on it in case their other supplies run out. "I am not washing in it. " Her face has the same shocked look as the girl's had. " She points across the lake over toward the rock face falling straight into the water.
