The feel of luke-warm water lapping against her awoke her. She looked around. It was dark. The stars twinkled like diamonds against the black velvet of the sky. There was hardly a thing left of Eva’s Delight; just a few scraps of boards and a crate or two. She was clinging to a board, bobbing in the warm waters of the inky Caribbean Sea. She called out, hoping one of the other crew members had survived the onslaught. She called out again, but received no other answer than the gentle lapping of the sea. IT was then she realized she was alone. She didn’t have anyone now. Her parents had died in an accident almost three years ago and Captain Sully had been her only living relative. Now he was gone and she had nowhere to go if she ever got out of the sea – and there was only a slim chance of that.
She wanted to cry, but forced herself not to, that would only waste energy and make her thirsty. She let out a loud sigh, suddenly getting frustrated with the entire situation.
