"Jiya lived in the last house in the row of houses toward the ocean, and his house did not have a window toward the sea either.
'Why not?' Kino asked him. 'The sea is beautiful.'
'The sea is our enemy,’ Jiya replied.
'How can you say that?’ Kino asked. 'Your father catches fish from the sea and sells them and that is how you live.'
Jiya only shook his head. 'The sea is our enemy,' he repeated. 'We all know it is.'"
