But it’s only been four hours!

The clouds swelled, looming up, swimming toward us as the gondola’s little engines hummed, purring above our heads.

The cable snapped, with a neat twang! – the fall seemed to take forever, and to end in an instant.
We fell, tumbling, skidding, crashing into the mountain’s jagged teeth, stones; tearing and rending the gondala’s walls, shattering glass and bone alike.
When we woke…when I woke…well, I was so hungry.

I had to!
Forgive me.
