    Summary

    At night - he still thinks about time for sleep as 'night', even when polar day spreads above him, immeasurable and empty - at night he becomes Terror. He grasps the ice with his anchors, and the snow stays under his fingernails. His ribs are aching, cracking under the slow, blind, unrelenting pressure. One time he wakes up from acute pain in his back, and in those foggy moments between sleeping and waking, when mind threads strange routes, he thinks with certainty - his back aches, because the Terror's mainmast has given in, has broken under the wind and its own weight.

    Summary

    James could never get warm. He wore as many layers as the fashion of the season allotted; he would make his first acquaintance with the fireplace on every social visit; he would ring for tea while others were toasting with rum and gin, and have furs thrown over the feather duvet when he went to bed.

    In bed, Francis said, holding his shivering body, “I believe it’s time we visited Portugal.”
