Tearfully, he told us of the catastrophe that had befallen our friend. We understood immediately. Groping in the dark, we gathered around the dead boy, now rapidly beginning to turn cold and stiff, who only at nightfall had still been our comrade. We elbowed aside each other’s warm bodies and touched the flesh which had lost its vital heat, then drew our arms back as if recoiling.

Just by sitting there, we made the interior stuffy.
