As I slowly dragged myself near the boat, I continued pressing all the buttons on the radio hoping for anything other than static. I cut the familiar two wires and started connecting them. And in after a few futile attempts, the motor roared to life. Without a blink I started, away from the shore opposite to the moon. As I shifted my bleeding thigh, I heard a voice. I picked the radio. Sam! Sam! Oh thank god, can you hear me. I heard a distorted yes from the other side. Sam, 10 miles north east of location alpha in fifteen, I said finally breathing. As the radio sound slowly vanished into the eerie silence of the sea, thoughts started flashing. Still unable to believe my escape. Slowly the land started to appear, and the sight of the familiar green jeep made me feel alive and safe. I skipped with one leg, as Sam came rushing and hugged me. Sam! We don’t have time, we need to tell Kay. We need to tell him right now.

My heart stopped.
