"They were tall and white. I try to see them as men in some kind of white jumpsuits. The one nearest the bank is stretching out a long white arm toward Ruth."
"The arm stretches after her. It stretches and stretches to yards and stays hanging in the air. Small black things are wiggling from its tip."
"I look where their faces should be and see black hollow dishes with vertical stripes. The stripes were moving slowly."
"'Get in, Althea, we're taking off for Orion.'"
