‘Charg­ing Elk opened his eyes and he saw noth­ing but dark­ness. He had been dream­ing and he looked at the dark­ness and for a mo­ment thought he hadn’t come back. But from where? And where was he now? He was ly­ing on his back in the dark and he re­mem­bered that he had eaten soup twice dur­ing day­light. He had awo­ken and a pale woman in a white face cov­er­ing had fed him soup. Then he awoke again and an­other woman with her face sim­i­larly cov­ered gave him more soup. It was clear soup and it was good but he couldn’t eat much of it. But the sec­ond time the woman gave him a glass of orange juice he recog­nised it and drank it down.’
