Countless vessels were arriving at the port, and throngs of people were disembarking . The shouts of dockworkers unloading cargo and of bustling sailors hard at work filled the air . There were travelers departing on transoceanic voyages, accompanied by their families who had come to see them off . Porters were carrying luggage on and off the ships . The air was alive with the clamor of a typical morning at the docks .

Julie blended in unnoticed among the hubbub, attempting to disappear into the crowd . The policemen had told her not to leave, of course, but she had no intention of listening to them . She slipped into the morning crush of people, walking briskly away . Now that she had left the ship, the woman known as Julie Guile existed no more . All she needed to do was escape into the city, and she wouldn’t be found again .

But Julie didn’t notice the men trailing her—two men holding hands, skipping along, wearing matching rabbit-skin hunting caps . As she walked, she murmured to herself, “No wonder . You did that back then, too, didn’t you… . ”

Tears blurred her vision .

Her memories came rushing back .

No, “memory” was too kind of a word .

It was a nightmare . A night like a bad dream…

Isn’t that right, Huey? You tricked us… .

A hound released into a drove of hares—Huey, or rather, Ned Baxter…

So that’s how you played dead back then!
