And a bit more:
YYY regarded him, trying to imagine a whole life confined to a space scarcely larger than a single day’s AAA. “By your age, [done a lot of travel and activity].” He added after a moment, “Didn’t see the sea for the first time till a couple years later, though.” XXX said eagerly, “Can I go with you?” “Certainly not!” ZZZ cried. XXX looked taken aback. YYY muffled a heartless smile. In a lifetime of relentlessly heckling his sister, XXX had clearly never once imagined needing her goodwill for any aim of his own. So do our sins bite us, boy.
A seasoned traveler who has not yet seen the sea ? Hmmm.. Beginning of "Passage" ?
Who is XXX? probably Whit
Who is his sister, ZZZ? Spark, a.k.a Fawn (or vice-versa)
And who is YYY, who is thinking this thought? Dag (Bluefield - not General Dag Benin)
IRRC, YYY and ZZZ relent and take XXX with them to the sea and back.
AAA= lakewalking ? patrolling ? certainly something like that but I don't know the exact word.
