She took a step closer. She wanted to touch him, to comfort him.
He drew back.
She’d known he would. He thought he was right. He always wanted to do what was right, no matter the cost to himself.
“Then we need to go back to the Fountain now,” she said.
He shook his head. “What is the point? We cannot collect enough water for both Tia Bella and me to bathe. Even if we could, who knows what will happen?”
“You’re forgetting Bradley.”
Her brother could help. She’d beg for his help if she had to. The possibility of Jack dying the moment the water touched him was too awful to contemplate.
She marched over to Jack and poked her finger against his shoulder.

We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.
Recording. We recorded this segment in two takes, after three practice runs with the microphone off.
Technical. No technical glitches this week.
Comments. Shoulder rolls, voice exercises, and sips from a bottle of water helped control mouth noises and clicks this week.
Story changes. Added paragraph breaks and a new section to the written version this week. Working on this after coming off edits of another project gives us a renewed eye for errors and other changes.
