The water is icy cold, like the veins of those people.
For a second, I feel numb. But I shake it off, fuming at myself for being so weak.
What is this, compared to the torture they had to endure?
I dive even deeper towards the bottom of the ocean, so dark and deep that I cannot see. Memories flash… her eyes of despair as she was taken away, stripped bare and chained in a hut with the other women.
Monsters. How do you sleep at night?
Suddenly, I feel it in front of me. I feel the gate! I can hear them crying inside.
I’ll let you all out.
I’ll save us all.
I fumble around desperately, and tug. The gate flings open as cows, sheep, pigs, goats, horses, chickens, ducks and all the other animals swim towards their freedom.
A glimmer of hope in this world of darkness.
