Rapture of the Deep, Amy Hempl, AT THE GATES OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM

by Patti Abbott

A temp is sent to hand out candy on Halloween for a temporarily handicapped woman. Much discussion of the rings the woman wears and the jewels’ properties. Rapture of the deep refers to scuba diving to which the temp has lost a boyfriend. Strange story. Combining the trivial with “out there” elements.
