Once again I am offering a piece, contiguous with last week’s, from War’s End. Coralie is mentally linked with her dog, Bounce, who is searching for the others stranded on this strange planet. Last week wound up with a comment that the dog’s vision seemed blurred and colorless to Coralie.

WR136 tears apart a shell of gas: HubbleBut Bounce’s vision did seem brighter ahead, and when Coralie pivoted in place she could see that it was lighter in one direction–the direction Bounce was heading toward.  Then Kelty’s voice rang out again.  “Bounce!  I can see Bounce!”

The dog hadn’t seen Kelty yet, though she heard him and his scent surrounded her.  Coralie urged her to look up at the same time she shouted, “Wave your arms if you can.”
