The compound is under attack again. I carefully head out the back, overgrown plants, dusk. If I sneak around in a circle maybe I can, oh, there's one of the marauders, doing the same thing, but he's attracted the attention of a rhino - it's following him. As I try to creep past, the rhino spots me and starts running over, furious. I escape by plunging into an old rose garden, losing the animal down the narrow, tangled paths. Then, there on the lawn sits a girl I've been looking for. I sit down next to her and tell her softly, 'When they took that thing out of your ear, they found the Robinson's boy's blood in it too. They're going to arrest you.' She just stares at me.
