There will soon be light on that horizon, he thought. But Tañon Strait itself was still dark. The far-off islands -- Cebu, Siquijor, Bohol -- were still in shadows. Only the whole Escaño stretch seemed alive with people on the last gasp of rhum-flavored stupor. They slurred, they sang and danced to dying music.

He walked on, and behind him the haphazard late night music, blaring for what seemed like endlessness, faded away as distance grew.
