Oh, women fall for that crap Denny dishes out. The insult to Denny and all of womankind seemed to be in about equal proportions. Jim exposed a moist ruffled underlip as he smiled at a delicious memory. A number of retorts came to mind but Anna left them unsaid. She wondered if Jim was trying to needle her into an argument. For a moment she just watched him; the pale restless eyes staring at the gray nothing beyond the windscreen, the bored wanderings of his white-skinned fingers picking at the vinyl seat cover where it was worn through.
Six one-hundred-cubic-foot scuba tanks were piled in a pyramid between the box covering the engine and the hull. An oversized single with a Y valve that Anna recognized as Dennys had rolled to one side. She glanced at the pressure gauges. All the one hundreds were fully charged. The single was only half full. There could be a dozen good reasons the single had not been topped off. Hawk or Holly might have used it on a dive earlier that day. Most ISRO dives didnt require double hundreds. The regulator might have been damaged.
Shell do it. Anna let herself into the ranger station. It was too late to build a fire to drive out the damp. She took half a bottle of Proprietors Reserve Red out of the refrigerator, poured a glass, and left it on the counter to warm while she changed and wrote the dive permit. The two men were waiting for her when she reemerged into the office area. Anna lit a kerosene lamp. The station had Colemans but she didnt plan to spend enough time with the Canadians to make the effort of lighting one worthwhile.
