    Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest
    Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!
    Drink and the devil had done for the rest
    Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

    Summary

    There’s something about the cadence of the words that strikes Flint as familiar, enough so that he lowers the gun in shock. “Silver?”

    “What the fuck,” Silver repeats, only he says it with Flint’s face, and Flint’s head is starting to hurt with all of this. “What the fuck?”

    “Stop that,” Flint says automatically, and it’s only then that he can see the dark curls springing into the corner of his vision. He looks down at his arms- and he recognizes the rings, the long fingers, the broad palms. “Am I-”

    “Yeah,” Silver says. "You- god."

    Summary

    It's only when the children finally break through the dense crowd that Silver realises three things in rapid succession; they are all girls, none of them are older than ten, and all of them—all of them, including the tiny one trailing in the back with a thumb in her mouth and a one-eyed doll in her hand—are looking straight at Flint.

    "What the—" Silver starts, slanting Flint an incredulous look, "Are they talking to you?"

    “No.”

    There's something about the cadence of his voice that makes Silver laugh, once. Then Flint glances at him out of the corner of his eye.

    “Hang on,” Silver says, drawing close, “Do you know them?"

    Summary

    Across the street from his shop, perched on the low half wall in front of a nondescript high rise of offices, there is a man playing acoustic guitar. Well, playing is a word for it anyway; it sounds as if the man has just picked up the instrument for the first time today. It’s all clumsy chord changes and out of tune twanging, but that on its own would probably be at least tolerable. Flint’s street is usually quiet, but he’s no stranger to buskers; the more populated streets are full of them when the weather is nice.

    No, the thing that really ties the scene together is the bird.
