“The Black Lagoon-2” May 31, 2019




Once she thought the camp was secure, she settled

down with some dried fruit and nuts. Better than

starving, she figured. There was plenty of rain water in

the barrel, enough for a few days, she guessed. The

night air was soothing unlike the bitter smells and

visions of the days, still rotting corpses. There was a

waterfall on the island. The crew had been talking

about it on board, the Day of Evacuation. Good thing I’m

a snoop, she thought, in a momentary lapse of sadness.

She’d heard one of the Chiefs, mumble something about

The Great Pool. She’d laughed at the time but now it

wasn’t funny. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try to find it, she

thought in a moment of normalcy, until a great roar

stilled her heart. If I can just get through the night.

She curled herself up, made herself as small as she

could, wrapped her blanket tightly, held her breath

and starred into the darkness.
