“Itzli! What’s our next course of action?” the captain
bellowed from his position on the quarterdeck.
I wrapped the rope
around my palm a third time, ensuring my grip as I leaned back and tilted my
gaze towards the heavens. I was carefully balanced on the yard of the lower
mast sail of the mainmast, letting myself become lost among the cream-coloured
sails and briny air. My senses were always in question to the crew, but
the captain never once faltered in his belief in me, and that was enough for me
to keep with it.
When my eyes found the
delicate brush of white that was the moon, still visible against the blue sky,
my heart felt as though it were being seized by the hand of a great being. It
was not harsh, but rather a gentle caress as the vision wove its way into my
mind. My lips moved in my prayer of thanks to la luna, and promised her my
unwavering services as I always had as a show of my gratitude for her gift. Her
gift to me was a strange one, and although I was ever grateful for her watching
eye and aid, there had once been a time where I cursed this ability.
