The lights turned a pale shade somewhere between blue and red. Eyes-closed stillness was the request, whichever way a person knew best how to keep it and focus awareness at the same time. Everything turned deeply quiet when the energy dropped. They were situated in their emergency point huddles, plunged into the underwater gloaming.
