All kinds of things pop up as the wave washes over me. It is dark, yet in the moonlight I see thousands of critters washing up on the beach and skittering off across the sand. There is a restaurant or bar of some kind up the beach where a party is going on. The critters, covered with salt and sand slip up beneath the building, disappearing as if sucked in by a vacuum. I feel this nasty lump in my gut. I hear the heat coming on, wrapping itself around the house. The bottoms of my feet begin to burn.
