By Robert Dickenson. “It’s expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, try the food.

All passengers remain accounted for–and so, the ship sails on as ifnothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong
