I kicked the Bebsi signal. there has been not anything beneath other than extra sand, slowly turning to dust from the drip, drip, drip of the leaky tower. Then I appeared extra heavily on the rainy spot at the floor. ‘Hang on. ’ I knelt. The water used to be pooling in a bit canal, as though the sand have been seeping right into a subterranean crack.
