Chapter 2

"Well, I guess so. You and your headstrong ways! What do you mean, sunning yourself. Naked? Defying the gods! Can you blame a man? Does Gendun know anything at all about this?"

"Of course not. You can't expect a husband to accept such a thing. He would be crushed. And it would be even worse if the baby is not his. Do you see what I mean?"

"Yes, right. But how will you know? A baby is a baby. The little thing can hardly tell you who his father was!"

"I know, I know. But that's the biggest reason I'm here. If there is anything different about this baby, anything at all, I will not keep it. You'd have to help me do something with it, Tesla. And Gendun must never know."

"Oh, may the Gods protect us. What are we getting into now! Of all the people in the world who could be my sister… nice quiet gentle people, who never get into trouble. Women who do not fill their heads with strange ideas about who they are, or could be. Cheoki, Cheoki. What will become of us!"

"Now don't get all excited, Tesla. Probably the baby will be perfectly normal and everything will be fine. Relax. I'm not talking about killing it. Besides, it'll be a while yet."

"If this is not about killing it, what are you talking about? What could we do with it?"

"Do you remember that Christian monastery close to Sikkim about two days from here? Well, if there's anything strange about this baby I think we should take it there."

"They'll tell us to take it somewhere else, for sure! We're supposed to be Buddhist, remember."

"No, we won't get into that. Buddhist or Christian makes no difference for this. They would keep a baby there. I heard it has happened at other monasteries. We would just leave it at the gate for them to find. No one would know who brought it."

"Cheoki. You've got this worked out to the last detail. Is there more to this than you've told me?"

"Well, I have had some strange dreams. But I really can't tell you much. It's all very confusing. I keep seeing these two-legged hairy creatures laughing at me. Then I scream at them. And then I wake up. All sweaty and cold and scared."

"Hairy creatures? Like what? Do you mean like monkeys?"

"No, men, sort of. Big abominable men. Hairy men."

"Well, that traveler has had quite an effect on you. You better get him out of your head before you go crazy."

"You may be right. Okay, I'll try that, I just will not think about him any more. I'll forget about him."
