    Summary

    Howell is accustomed to men howling and lashing out during the procedure; he is accustomed to their bodies racked with shock-shivers dragging them up again and again from the black unconsciousness they chase; has seen them bite and kick and scratch and beg until the last peaceable sigh of either sleep or death washes over them. 

    He has never seen what he sees in Silver: a feverish desperation to keep hold of consciousness even as the scrape of the bonesaw overtakes the crash of cannonballs against the Carolina shore.

    Summary

    "Martin?" He hears Jon call from the kitchen. The sound echoes in his head, bounces off the walls of his skull and distorts with every collision until it is nothing but static, white noise, white foam clinging to his thighs as he stands in the ocean.

    Left the kettle on, Martin realizes somewhat distantly. The shrieking had stopped a while ago, but the hob was likely still on, heating a kettle full of nothing for an empty house. Sometimes, Martin wonders if Jon feels like he lives with a ghost. There's irony somewhere in there, but Martin's too tired, too cold to try to find it.
