Atrus discovers eBay


I realized the moment I bid on the banana that the fruit would not be won as I had planned. The bidding continued spiraling into the stratosphere, of which I had only a glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have ended, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold the banana are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the banana has not yet been eaten.
