“Looking at the sunset behind me, I realize something. There is a long red trail following me. Sitting on the surface of the ocean, following the small waves and darkened by the twilight sky. “That’s my blood, that is a lot of my blood,” I say aloud. As if I didn’t have enough to worry about already. Now I need to make sure I don’t die from blood loss. I need something to stop the bleeding. With nothing better to use, I rip off my sleeve and use it as a bandage. It will help a little but without anything to disinfect the area, I’m at risk of it turning really ugly. I will just have to work with what I have for now. Shore can’t be that far away. The island of Kheran is fairly close to the mainland. I’ve already been out here a while, drifting in the right direction. I estimate to be out of here by the end of the night. That is, if I don’t freeze to death. With the water being as cold as it is, I need to keep kicking and paddling to get my heart rate up.”
