CHAPTER XIII The master of the reef!   

    [[[Lilli sits on the pier weaving a mat. Richard jumps around her, relating his story just as a child would.]]]

    RICHARD: The first time, he almost got me. But I was too fast for him. This time, he was lying in wait. So I dive in! And I can see down his mouth, thereís about five hundred teeth with stripy little fish all around his gills, and he comes at me! Woosh! Whap! He misses me! Stupid sea-slug.

    [[[He chuckles.]]]

    LILLI: Seems silly to me.

    RICHARD: Silly?! Itís not silly. Itís dangerous.

    LILLI: (sharp) Exactly. ThatĎs why itís silly. I donít understand why you have to do it.

    RICHARD: I like the way it makes me feel.

    LILLI: What do you mean?

    [[[He points to his stomach.]]]

    RICHARD: Inside here. It feels all alive, when I know Iím the MASTER of the reef.

    LILLI: (mocking) The master of the reef. The master of the reef!

    RICHARD: (peeved) Hey donít you ever make fun of me.

    LILLI: (not convincing) Iím sorry.

    RICHARD: Besides, youíre the silly one. Always touching yourself and looking at yourself.

    LILLI: (whispering) I donít touch myself.

    RICHARD: Yes you do. Youíre always touching THOSE when you look in the mirror.

    LILLI: IĎm just measuring how much theyíve grown. Besides, you shouldnít be looking at me when Iím naked!

    [[[She stands up and folds up the mat she was working on.]]]

    RICHARD: Why not? I used to see you naked all the time.

    LILLI: Well itís different now!

    [[[She stands up and stomps off a ways.]]]

    RICHARD: Why?

    LILLI: I donít know! I donít know why itís different, but it is.
