Horizon

Suddenly someone far up deck yells. First there was silence, then a small rumour starts up the deck. Slowly I wake up. Last months I've been running duty with very little to no sleep at all. I therefore damn them for making all that noise and piquedly turn myself in my hammock away from all the yelling. Almost sleeping again the door of our deck slams open: "LAND AHOY!". It took a few seconds to fully reach me, but when it did I jump up and fall out of my hammock due excitement. Everybody on the ship is now running to the deck. With a lot of effort I try to push me a way to the prow. I looked towards the horizon. First I saw nothing, but then. There it is! Land! Finally home!

I am back!
