One fall evening as the yellow sun lowered in the red sky, three ghosts, their hair matted with algae and seaweed, swam upward through the waves. From the farthest depths of the sea they had come. Two hundred years had passed since the day Urdu the fisherman murdered them and threw their bodies out of his tattered boat, and these ghosts who had lived among the sea-dead could no longer suppress the memories that made them so discontent.
Because of their long sojourn in the sea, they were now green-skinned and green-eyed instead of the brown skin and black eyes the Lord of all life had given them while they were alive. In spite of their deaths, they were like living children in many ways and prone to getting into trouble.
