Thank you especially to you lovely commenters :) ...y'know, I like criticism too, 'cause it pushes me to write better :)
Last time, there was world-building (hope I didn't bore you), sorry, there's a tad more this time, but also the introduction of the third main character!
“Are you watching the dredge-line, or the river?”
Simon glanced at Faith, trying to gauge by the angle of her head what exactly she was looking at, but with her blank expression it was impossible to tell what she was focused on. His eyes followed the river north to where it met the sea and, with a shiver, Simon took a step back from the window and turned to look at his younger brother. Hector was leaning against the open doorframe with both hands shoved deep in the pockets of his rough, brown trousers. In the five days since they had come to work at the glass house, Hector had not once spoken to Faith or even entered her room.
