The sound came again, the gentle hum Emma heard before the man left. It went on lightly, like background music in a store. Inside the hum, so faintly she wasn’t sure if she heard it, a human-seeming voice occasionally whispered. The rasping, musical sound belonged to neither the white-haired man nor his distant counterpart. Emma listened closely to see if she could hear what the voice said. She couldn’t, but as soon as she forgot about it the voice was clear again, like those books where you can only see the secret picture when you squish your eyes and half-stare at the page.
The airy language sounded like disconnected lines of poetry or spoken songs, or bits of speeches and unconnected conversations: questions and answers that didn’t originally belong to one another. Emma listened without trying, and the words blended together to form a single idea.
