ELIZABETH squinted in the bright sunlight, slowly curling her fingers in the sand.
“I’m alive,” she whispered. Struggling to a sitting position she looked around.
“Hey you; sitting on the sand. Get off my island.”
The girl turned her throbbing head in the direction of the voice. She could almost make out an image of a man. He looked to be marching up the beach towards her. She grinned at the man’s bright red shirt flapping in the cool breeze.
