Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Sunnyvista City by Peter Viney». Аудиокнига на английском.
Suddenly he was awake. He could see the light through the curtains. Tina was still sleeping beside him. That was strange. They always woke up together. He looked at his watch. Six thirty. He tried to think. Yes, they always woke up at exactly eight o’clock. He couldn’t remember waking up before eight . . . not ever. Why not? Everybody in the city woke up at exactly eight o’clock. Every day.
He got out of bed quietly. Tina didn’t move. He walked to the window and opened the curtains. He looked out at the quiet city. Nothing was moving. Then he dressed quickly, and went to the chair and sat down. He had to think. He had to remember. He was still sitting there an hour and a half later when Tina opened her eyes.
‘Dan,’ she said, ‘Dan, what are you doing?’
‘I got up early,’ he said. Early. It sounded strange. But why did it sound strange?
‘Dan, is anything wrong?’
‘Wrong? No, nothing’s wrong. I just wanted to get up, that’s all.’
Tina dressed. She smiled brightly. ‘It’s time for breakfast,’ she said. ‘Come on, we mustn’t be late.’
‘Wh …?’ He was going to say, ‘Why not?’ But he didn’t. He stood up. ‘Yеs, yes, it’s time for breakfast. Look, you go down for breakfast. I’m not hungry today. I’ll see you later.’
Tina looked at him. ‘We have to go to breakfast. Are you feeling ill? I’ll call the doctor.’
The doctor. Yes, he had to go to breakfast. He didn’t want to see the doctor. Tina was standing by the door. She looked annoyed.
‘Tina,’ he said, ‘I didn’t eat anything yesterday, or the day before. And I feel different.’
Tina moved towards the phone. ‘Of course you feel different, Dan. You are ill. I’ll get the doctor.’
‘Don’t phone, Tina . . . please,’ he said. ‘I wanted to feel hungry. I haven’t felt hungry for … for a long time. I wanted to remember the feeling.’
