If he’d been able to spread his feet out, he might have been able to hold his own, but his footing was terrible. There were only a few narrow points he could stand on, surrounded by empty air. And now Super raised itself up, using its empty hand to pull its top half up on to the motor, stretching as close to Gibson as he could. Super pressed down even harder, throwing as much of its weight down against him as its awkward position allowed for. Seeing no other choice, Gibson threw caution to the wind, and spun on his heel away from Super’s saw.

He kicked off his shoes, threw the shirt portion of his grays on the floor, and slid into his bed. He was asleep almost at once. He had time to dream before the screaming woke him up. He had no idea how long he’d been asleep, but he’d had time to dream. In his dream, he was a tiger. * * * The screaming that woke him wasn’t the plaintive wail of an infant, or a squeal of laughter. It wasn’t the angry shout of some drunk about to get into a fight on the street below. This was a scream that would peel paint off the walls.
