 At first, Laurie couldn't decide which kind of tea
 she wanted. The chamomile, which used to be her

 her too much of Carl, who once said, in happier
 times, that he liked chamomile.
 But she felt she must now, at all costs, keep her

 over a year ago. "A.S. Harris to Geostation 17," he

 read in her newspaper one morning. The news si-

 stared out the window, dreaming of her youth,

 her. "Why must one
