It was as if the horizon was drinking the sea. Men looked at their enemy, yes, but sometimes they turned round and paddled like mad. It made no difference. The sea was sliding and then, suddenly, was dancing again, like the water in the lagoon. 18 Nation 26/6/08 16:43 Page 19 THE PLAGUE Mau, trying to think straight, fought to get the canoe under control. He’d get back. Of course he would. He could see the picture in his head, small and clear. He turned it around, savouring the taste of it. Everyone would be there.

Well, at least I’m a bit lighter, Mau thought. It’s not as though I need the fish in any case. I’ll be filling up with pork tonight! The bird landed heavily on a log a little way ahead. Quite a large log, in fact. As he drew nearer Mau saw that it was a whole tree, even with its roots, although a lot of its branches had been torn off. He saw the axe, tangled, rising out of the water. But part of him already knew he was going to see it. The sight of it raced towards his eyes and became, just for a moment, the centre of the turning world.

Mau felt as if he hadn’t slept at all, hunched up amongst the broad fallen leaves of a coconut tree, but there must have been times when his body and mind just shut down, in a little rehearsal of death. He awoke or maybe came alive again with the dead grey light, stiff and cold. Waves barely moved on the shore, the sea was almost the same colour as the sky and still it rained tears. The little river that came down from the mountain was choked with sand and mud and bits of trees, and when he dug down with his hands it didn’t flow.
