ALTERNATE FATES: ‘SUMMER PARTY’ KRUL LORE
In the hour after the patrol of dawn, when the sun rose and the groms and the kooks crowded the whitewater, as the wind chopped and sprayed the waves, I paddled the surfboard of doom toward shore in a rush for crunchy sustenance. In the deep sandy trench I saw it: a gliding fin rising off the surface, a carnivorous monster hunting its prey: a snorkeling damsel just under the surface.
My last heartbeats pounded in terror as I, without a thought for my life, dropped into the next wave and snaked in between the beast and distressed lady. I carved the face and caught air, landing the board square between the bladed jaws of my horror. Thanks to my shredding expertise, that lady lives to this day.
I was not graced thus by fate. In my tangle with the great shark, my bitten board was thrust into my heart and my life damned ever after.
Not for thanks did I this heroic deed, but for my lost honor.
