Once again I was made conscious of the thinness of reality. Life, in that moment, seemed to me something wafer thin, like a gaudy poster one might tear from a wall to reveal the true solid substance beneath. I paused, swaying, so that I had to put my hands out to prevent myself falling. A sweet and strange smell assailed my nostrils - was it violets or wallflowers, or was it onions cooking? I say strange, and strange it seemed, yet I knew I had smelt it before, without being able to recall where.
Thunderpeck and Abdul were ushered back towards the tracked vehicle by two of the soldiers, while the others came forward. This I could not see clearly, for at that moment the sun rose almost clear of the low mist and shone straight into my eyes. Even as I cursed the sun and the planet on which it shone, an idea came to me. Shading my eyes, I made out the party of four soldiers at the water’s edge, about to launch the raft on which we had paddled ashore the previous night. As I had surmised, they were about to board the freighter.
But Thunderpeck had collapsed. For the first time, I wondered how he had survived the nuclear detonation and in what sort of shape he was. I had assumed he was immolated inside the burning tracked vehicle. Israt passed me a vacuum flask with iced water in. Some of this I forced down Thunderpeck’s throat, afterwards taking a hearty swig myself. He revived then, partially at least, and explained what had happened inside the vehicle during those fateful moments when the freighter’s pile blew. When one of the Angolese soldiers climbed up to see what the shouting was about, the other tried to tie up the doctor and Abdul Demone.
