I am on watch in the cockpit on board the sailing vessel Sister Moon I am being flung around as though I am a bouncing ball I try to make sense of my surroundings as I awkwardly search the horizon for any other unfortunate vessels being thrown from towering swell to towering swell I feel totally alone out here in this raging pool of pitch-black darkness Images of the ocean swallowing me and my family in a single gulp flash through my mind every second The wind is beating against my icy skin and every bone in my body aches from the relentless cold I want to be brave and I dont want to allow fear to override my entire body but my emotions have no remorse and I can no longer control them I am absolutely exhausted yet wide awake at the same time Fatigue washes over me with each swell that smashes into Sister Moons hull and sprays salty spears onto my face I stumble my way down the companion way into Sister Moons warm and cosy belly where every creak or bang is magnified tenfold I slam into the chart table as Sister Moon is knocked down by yet another monstrous swell I limp towards the unsteady stove rocking back and forth on its gimbals and I hold onto the counter so tight that my knuckles turn a translucent white I shakily light the stove and put the kettle on to boil Heaving my way up the companion way to examine the radar I notice an unfamiliar green symbol that has been highlighted onto one of the ancient coffee-stained charts upon the chart table In my state of confusion I look closer and recognise the symbol but I cant yet place it I whisper to my father to ask him about it He tells me that its just a hurricane he wants to keep an eye on and that
