"It could be worse, Juan" said Estevan.
"Worse!!?" his crew-mate replied "How could it possibly be worse!"
"The ship could have gone down more quickly - we might have ended up like the rest of the crew - and we’re lucky the cutter was already provisioned. We've enough food and water for at least a few weeks"
"So we live a few more weeks - so what?"
"We need to stop panicking and work up a plan, my friend"
The mighty current had pulled the Santa Maria almost on to the rocks before anyone was aware of it - Juan and Estavan had jumped aboard the cutter and cut it free from the deck as the ship had keeled over. Miraculously, they had found themselves afloat and had managed to row the hundred yards or so to the nearby shore.
They had scrambled up and watched as the remains of the ship had swept past in the merciless torrent.
The sun was going down for the third time since the shipwreck and the two sailors were huddled around a driftwood fire.
They had found themselves to be on a small island, no more than a couple of hundred yards across but sitting in a tremendous ocean flow.
"Is it still there?" asked Juan.
"Yes" said Estevan "just like the last two nights"
They looked towards the faint orange glow coming from another small island a mile or so away. Maybe a lantern at a window, perhaps.
"I wonder if there are shipwrecked sailors there as well" mused Juan.
"Wouldn't surprise me" said Estevan "they warned Captain Cristobal about what could happen. Perhaps it's happened to others as well"
The two friends continued to plan. They could rig the cutter's sail and wait for a strong northerly wind and maybe make enough way to get to safety.
For now, they sat by the fire listening to the mighty roar of the ocean going over the edge of the world into space.
