After a long, long time, you see a tiny glimmer of light, like a spark of fire in the distance. You walk slowly towards it, wondering if you should stay and wait, or if something would happen if you didnt. You go back to the coast, where you know theres a harbor. As you walk back towards the coast, you notice several large ships, anchored in a line in the water. Your ship looks small and helpless in this situation. How could you possibly defend yourself from an attack by them. You keep going to the harborYou keep moving along the coastline, trying to think about what kind of ship you want to be on. You remember being in a similar situation once, back when you were a kid and you owned your own ship. Unfortunately, you have no idea what kind of vessel youre supposed to be on now. Is it worth taking the risk of death by hunger or a storm, or are you better off making a new life in an uninhabited island. You keep going to the harborYou continue to the harbor and see that a large fleet of large ships, mostly sailing ships are there, headed towards you. Theres a lot of noise and shouting, which you cant understand a lot of, but you see several boats, with people on them, sailing towards the island. You are one of the lucky ones who was not attacked by other people on a boat, on the way to the island. You are so pleased that you can speak. You are thinking to yourself – or more likely repeating to yourself – that youd really rather not die at sea and be eaten by something sea-monster or something like that, but something better. You think for a moment, then say – out loud – Id rather be on a ship than be eaten by some guy on a boat. The sailors chuckle and reply Yes or Of course or something like that. You smile, a feeling of joy flooding through your entire being, because you are so happy that you were able to speak your thoughts out loud, and because your family has made you feel so incredibly loved. Some people are more familiar with you than others, and the ones who werent more friendly. You realize that, while you have a lot in common with them, there are some differences as well, but it does not seem to matter to you. You you will return from the islandYou stand up and look at your reflection in the water, smiling and shaking your head. I should be on the ship at sea, not here in the harbor.
