The sides of the hole he’d dug began to collapse, narrowing the opening. The earth was healing the gash that had allowed the spring to rise to the surface. The oozing mud shifted, and Jack braced himself, half expecting to be sucked from his feet by the relentless flow.

He blinked, realizing the extent of his…his what? Luck? Was coming to Everyoung, meeting Nessa, and finding the Fountain merely a stroke of chance? Or something more?
