The calming beauty of his lake surrounded him. Peaceful tranquility. But on shore a storm was brewing. Silent and undetectable, it consumed him from within.
In desperation, he had changed course and tactics but the storm was unforgiving and despite his best efforts, had completely engulfed him.
Lost in despair, with no hope of returning home, the starry skies were his only companion.
No more chances, just endless days without her. Defeated and alone, he welcomed the end. As the taste of regret filled his soul, he heard her voice on the whispering wind and his final breath escaped him.
