At first, he was unable to make out anything in the blue-black depths beneath the trees. But then he saw it—a rapidly moving blur amid the darkness. It was like looking through a window filled with wavy imperfections. He watched in confusion as it moved across the landscape, a shadow among the darkness, shifting and changing as it went. He thought it might be another skier, but as he watched, he noticed the shape was moving through the trees at a speed no skier could match. It made a wide sweeping arc, its motion fluid and graceful. As the shadow swept down the hillside, Adam realized it was coming toward him, its speed increasing as it drew nearer. He grabbed at the other ski pole lying a few feet away.
He was too slow.
