He swallowed some of the air and pondered this. He reached a hand out into the ink. He swirled the hand about until she caught hold of it.

Why reach out into it, she said, when you can just be here with me, as if we were invisible to the rest of them?

He let his arm fall. That was enough of an answer until dawn.
