Chapter 46

Of What Happens When Balder Has His Day at the Beach

  • Gonzo, Cam, and Balder pack up and get ready to head out. Cam suggests Gonzo could stick around and stay with Drew, but Gonzo wants to see everything through to the end. Plus Drew has his digits, so no worries.
  • Cam promised he'd get Balder to the ocean to search for Ringhorn, so that's the next step even though Cam's E-ticket is fading to almost nothing.
  • The gang spends the day at the beach building sand castles and playing in the waves as if they had no other worries in the world. Balder is insistent that Ringhorn will come with the evening tide, so all there really is to do is wait.
  • Cam sits on the beach with Gonzo and watches the sun set, struck by how happy he is and how much it stinks that he's just figuring stuff out when he has so little time left.
  • But he's happy.
