We walked around a bit, but although there were a lot of little stalls, there wasn’t much to do. The air was dead, and there was no one else we knew around. We were all oddly uneasy. Every conversation stopped before it really started, every drink tasted foul and made us feel worse. Darcy arrived with Vikki late on and Craig dragged her off to dance.
