37. waking up



Edward dreams he is in Khartoum. Zu is there, seated on a red carpet, wearing a white robe, and she is playing the bamboo flute slowly and it is so spirit-like, so infused with longing, that Edward feels tears rush into his eyes and nose. He sits down to listen. He finds that the room is filled with smoke. He crawls through it to find Zu. He falls out of the room through a trapdoor and he is in a lake, floating in the clear water, looking at the sky. Nothing around but dry hills and monumental stones, grave markers maybe. He's so sad he begins to gnash his teeth. That wakes him up. He wakes up looking at a hand-sized patch of glowing yellow sunlight on the dirt floor. He's alone in the room. Alive.
