“Sometimes, it’s not your secret to tell.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon
Tom swam to the shore with all the strength left in his tired arms. He was lucky that he found a floating plank and kept himself afloat during the night. There didn’t seem to be any other survivors from the ill-fated ship. He gathered a few sticks that he found laying around and tried to make a beacon. To let others know that he was here. He longed to tell the story of how their ship sank but sometimes it’s not your secret to tell. He will take it to his grave. Now he just hoped to be rescued.
