This world differed so greatly from her world, but even these people must know the danger of drinking the water? “Yes, why not?” “Do you want to die of the colic or worms of the brain?” “We have something called sanitation now,” sniped Alex. “If you’d had it in the seventeenth century, you might still be alive.” “Or dead!” offered Jackie. “Or dead, yes, absolutely,” amended Alex.
