The shaman-woman’s face was covered in perspiration. Sometimes she would wipe the sweat from her forehead with an elbow and sniff impatiently. Having finished with one hand, she moved on to the other. And then what everyone was dreading happened: John became conscious.

Perhaps only somewhere in the foggy deep of childhood, in a life lost forever. Still, it was not the life he’d already lived that he grieved for, but that he’d never go home, never appear on the doorstep as the conqueror of polar seas.

It’s there, or else it’s not. There is no other way about it. Each person has got to save the life of another. Though, what kind of person are you!
