From inside the novelab aOne more thing, for the next forty minutes you canat stand up, okay?a Kiki looked to the ceiling. There wasnat much room anyway. aWhy not?a aWeare only flying twenty feet above sea level. Less than the height of a normal suburban house. At that altitude the uplift is so fragile that even the slightest variation in weight could send us into the water. So head to the restroom before we take off.a aBelow the radar, a said Tin Man. aBut after forty minutes they have to gain altitude. The pilot loses the ability to judge distance. Over the water thereas nothing for perspective. The chance of a crash increases.a aUntil Mei turns off the smoking sign, okay?a said Digby. Kiki sat back in her seat as the man in the polo shirt helped Digby raise the stairs and lock the door. Ground crew directed them onto the tarmac. After fifteen or so minutes the plane took off. At first they climbed, then came down again. Kiki looked out the window. The ocean was so close you could almost touch it. KA-PLUNK! The jet wobbled violently. Then stabilized. Salt spray splashed against Kikias window. aSorry about that, a came Meias voice over the intercom. aSomething was in our way.a Kiki looked out as the jet shot past a cruise ship. No more than a hundred feet away. The very same boat which had woken her that morning.See if you can get the drawers open.a She produced a pen from her purse. ... Kiki handed the paper to her. aThata#39;s not Finnish, a she said, handing it ... To the television displaying the security cameras. aOver there, a said Kiki. Tatyana looked up.
