    She Said Nothing.

    "Margaret, can you hear me? She rolled onto her back, looked languidly around her. She was imagining the voice: there was no one nearby, only green grass and broad-leafed trees. "Margaret, concentrate on my voice." She got up: the grass was cool against her hand. The sun...
