It was cluttered with Dom’s things: an old Brendikin analyser, a bench littered with shells, a hologram of the Jokers Tower, and memory cubes on every flat surface. ‘How the old place has changed,’ she said, wrinkling her nose. She pirouetted in front of the tall mirror. ’ ‘I don’t know. ’ He remembered the contractual ceremony two months before, and a vague impression of a very large fierce old man. ‘He’s kind,’ said Keja. ‘And rich, of course. Not so rich as us, but he sort of flaunts it more.
A face out of a nightmare appeared above him. The skin was grey and hung in folds under eyes four times the proper size in which small irises stared out like beads in milk. Great flat ears were turned towards Dom. The musty smell was overpowering. The face was set off by a pair of large sungoggles. The phnobe was trying to speak Janglic. Dom summoned his resources and answered him in jaw-breaking phnobic. ‘A sscholar,’ said the phnobe, dryly. ‘My name is Fff-Shs. ’ ‘Not till tomorrow,’ moaned Dom.
They both heard the distant swish-swish of a flyer. The phnobe dived sideways, flipped back a section of reed and killed the island’s speed, then on the rebound flung himself down by Dom with the knife pressed against his throat. ‘Not to utter a sound,’ he said. They lay still until the flyer had faded into the distance. The phnobe was a pilac smuggler. The dagon fishermen under licence from the Board of Widdershins rode out by the hundred when the big bivalves rose up from the deep, to snatch the pearls of nacreous pilac by the light of the moon.
