Standing on the deck of the boat she stared out into the distance. It was soon approaching sunrise and she could see the moon so bright, it seemed as though she could touch it. A chill ran up and down her spine, partly from the cold moist air and partly because of what she had just done. It had been a long night.
It seemed like a good idea at first, going on a boat ride with Charlie. He was so smart, handsome and just irresistible to everyone he encountered. Her stomach turned as she reflected upon the last 36 hours. Glancing down at her hands, the moonlight illuminated the blood stains.
There would be so much to explain once the coast guard caught up to the boat. But she did what she had to do to survive. Anyone would have, and hopefully could have.
She could see the sun rising behind what was left of the storm clouds, as the moon refused to give up his position. In the distance a fin emerged from the ocean water, perhaps a shark? Shaking her head no, she tried to push the thought of dumping the still warm but very dead body in the cabin below.
She would have to face the consequence of her actions. Besides, there was too much to cover up and not enough time. It would be daylight soon. So in the meantime, she stood watching the majestic moon as it bowed down and handed over its reign to the sun while she waited to pay for what she had done.
