Will and I talked until the power grid shut down and the lights flickered, then went dark. He had a small glow light, but it wasn't fully charged or bright enough for both of us to read by. The darkness settled. I felt myself growing weightless, thoughts flitting half-formed through my mind, pieces of one thing replaced by endings of another. I knew sleep was coming. In my dreams Kai offered me plastene cups filled with water, but I couldn't drink them fast enough. The water tasted like graphite and made my mouth dry. I tried to tell him to stop, but he kept offering them and spilling what I couldn't drink on the ground.
- Chapter 2, page 9
I must say, this passage frightened and fascinated me, all at once. I could totally feel myself there and trying to drink but not able to do so fast enough and watching such a precious substance fall to the ground, wasted, and I could do nothing about it. It really does make you think.
Review on Monday.
