The Bridge to the End of the Night: 1,150 words. It seems the Prologue is two scenes, not one - problem propounded, problem resolved, or at least problem resolved to be attacked from a newly promising angle. Well into the second scene now. The long summer evening is paling over smoky-tenemented Sellawick, and Katy's partner is showing us his mettle. Even I sometimes forget just what he is and can be: I've seen him in no such mood since that day on Maltby Edge, two dozen years in his future, and two years ago for me. I do believe I've missed him.
