Chapter 31 Summary

This chapter is about sharks in a swimming pool. The Aquarium of the Revolution has been established in a seaside house. They filled the seaside pool with salt water and numerous sharks. The diving board is still in place, as if to tempt someone to jump into the pool of sharks.

Sixteen years later, in Minnesota, Eire is swimming in an Olympic-sized pool, and is suddenly seized with the fear that the pool is full of sharks. Only the entrance of a diver on the board is able to dispel this fear. Two years after that, he meets a woman to whom he confides his secret fear, and she tells him that she has been haunted all her life by the very same image, even though she has never seen a pool full of sharks. She becomes his wife.
