I remember nothing of what happened next.
By sheer force of will I must have fought through the frozen vacuum and entered the ship.
I don't know when it is that I become aware of my surroundings. The beating of the selenite drums makes the floor shake! It's like they are right under the ship! I grab the controls and open every "cavorite" blind. I feel the ship pull against the frozen mud. I hear the selenite drums speed up. Am I too late?
