Excerpt 27

“Right. Well. To start with, I have four days.”

“Until what?”

“The end of the world.”

The way she said it, so matter-of-factly, with none of the embellishment such a grand statement should require, gave it a legitimacy.

“That isn’t much time,” he said. “Are you sure?”

“As far as I can tell.”

“How do you know?”

“I know.”

“Apparently it ends on Sanibel Island.”

“Correct.”

“But how?”

“It’s better not to talk about it.”

“Why?”

“Is your world ending?”

“Sort of.”

“Want to talk about it?”

“Touché.”

“The important thing is that we made a deal. We’re in full bargaining. That’s one step closer.”

“To what?”

She squinted at the horizon. “The beginning.”

“This is what I’m talking about. Everything you say is in code. I’d like to come to an understanding.”

“That may or may not be possible. But we’ve come to a misunderstanding. And that’s better than no understanding.”
