120 “A ring, two spires and a wedding gift”

Still clutching Angel’s note, and filled with powerless compassion and vertigo at the depths of pain in her whose lips smudged its author’s signature with such hopeless frequency, I honour that smudging in the only way I can think of: I turn and place a slow, gentle kiss on Alaia’s warm temple.

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 120: He awakes on the approach to Manhattan, recalls a funny anecdote told by Rik, whom Alaia and he will be seeing again soon, and contemplates warmly the imminent chapter of brand-new love he and Alaia will share. He inspects the note inside Pippa’s envelope. When the sheet slides off Angel, Jaymi’s gaze rests again on the wedding-ring Pippa put onto Angel’s left hand. It presses snugly into the wax … but there comes a stab of horror when Jaymi realises what Pippa did to herself behind that narrow door, before he ever met her, revealing the extraordinary depths of obsession and sadness in the infatuation she harboured for Angel: she adorned this waxwork with one of her own fingernails. Feeling anguished compassion for Pippa and a sense of powerless vertigo at the depths of pain in certain people, Jaymi responds by kissing the sleeping Alaia beside him; while the Manhattan skyline at dusk rises ahead of the van with a cold, hard beauty that continues, apparently, quite regardless of that pain.

119. “Savagery, mystery, death and confinement”

The car is cruising fast, sliding smooth on the curve of an elevated freeway, high as a suspension bridge, that strides grey and silver through the countries of a jungle on a march of slender legs I can see far ahead disappearing in a mist of light.

118. “The feet beneath the sheet”

When my gaze reaches her mouth, softening at the prospect of its imminent detour into the small curved inlet comprising her parted lips as seen from here, I feel my eyes change focus, from close up to further away: for exactly beyond her lips, in this particular sightline, are Angel’s backwards-pointing feet sticking out from under the sheet.

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 118: Being driven back to New York in the van with the wax Angel across the aisle under a sheet, Jaymi sits between the window and a sleeping Alaia. He reflects on how the broadcasts will tower on indefinitely, as recordings, independent of him and Alaia. He also realises with joy that, in tandem with the vanishing of his special sight, he has rediscovered how to inhabit his own personality naturally.

117. “That narrow door”

Left alone, I glance down the long, narrow corridor in the other direction, towards Pippa’s closed bedroom door, and am startled to notice a faint light gleaming through the hinge of that narrow door… I creep nearer to it, careful to make no sound. There’s the keyhole. I bend down very slowly, bring my eye level with the keyhole, and peer through.

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 117: After a romantic walk, Jaymi and Alaia meet Marc in connection with legal paperwork, before finally leaving the Metropolitan. Evelyn and Jaymi visit the dead Pippa’s spooky flat and find behind the narrow door a life-size, full-body wax model of Angel, similar to the one on Damian’s front path but wearing a wedding-ring. It is sinister, though they fail as yet to see how sinister it is; instead they snatch it up in order to donate it to Angel, speaking of the obsession that this model indicates Pippa had with Angel.

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 116: The return to normality is distressing to Jaymi. Marc’s visit here today was to have fixed a third broadcast, but Jaymi explains to him that there will be no such thing: global TV events, special sight and raising the world’s self-knowledge are all over. With Alaia, Jaymi realises that he has fallen in love with her and that she has been in love with him since Sound & Vision.

115. “Shrieking eyes in the ghost town”

Deep longing flickers in his mesmerising eyes, and with that last unbearable sibilant in darkness comes a hiss among the carcass-columns, as of gas in air vents—its shiver like the quiver of the shadow-dagger stuck in Angel’s chest, with his whisper in my ear, Stroke the blade soft on Jaymi’s neck, while he sleeps…

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 115: Up there, Angel conducts a strange three-way dance of mind-games and power. Amid the visionary and emotional voltages of this, he mesmerises Alaia into starting to team up with him against Jaymi: she begins vocalising to accompany Angel’s hypnotic gaze at him, just as she used to accompany Jaymi’s gaze from the TV. Such is the intensity of the atmosphere that it almost seems natural when they all see, or think they see, a supernatural-looking object blast past them inland from across the ocean. Jaymi alone then sees, or thinks he sees, another huge supernatural-looking object far out to sea by the horizon. He struggles to process these objects in his mind; but whatever they were, all that three-way voltage has been earthed, Angel’s new power has been removed and the three of them are once again small, human, equal and tired. Angel tries to hypnotise the others one last time but fails; the gun feels quite irrelevant. Jaymi and Alaia return to the Metropolitan, leaving Angel on the high platform, small and hunched against the dawn sky.

Mini-synopsis of this mini-chapter 114: Jaymi sees that his powers have been transferred into Angel—a dangerous place, in view of his dark and violent state of mind. As Angel comprehends his new powers, Lucan and Kev appear and he tries out these powers on the two of them, hypnotically pinning them where they stand, then he sends them away with promises of great suffering for both. Next it is Jaymi’s and Alaia’s turn, as Angel leads them to the adjacent eleven-storey concrete shell of a new but long-abandoned building and points them upstairs to the top of it.
