After endless days of drifting in the sea, Mongrel spotted something. The sun was just rising, casting a sick yellow glow over everything and the sky was opal blue. Gentle waves were lapping the small wooden boat as if it was a rocking cradle.
‘Look!’ Mongrel cried.
The four sleeping bodies in the bottom of the boat stirred.
‘Something coming!’ Mongrel added.
A head rose up, a hand rubbing at the face and a man’s voice said, ‘what?’
‘See,’ Mongrel replied and pointed at the strange shape arising out of the sea.
Elk, the leader of the remaining Spear tribe family, looked. Frowning, he rubbed more sleep from his eyes then focused on the shape again. It had been so long seen he last seen anything other then water and sky.
‘Is it food?’ a young girl’s voice asked.
‘No. It’s building,’ Mongrel gushed, ‘Row! Quick!’
‘Aye!’ Elk shouted.
