The Man from the HorizonMonday was the day that he came to the island. He was on the shore and he did not look like anyone that I knew. I was sure that he was not here before, and I am certain he was here now. The features of his body did not reveal if he was a man or a woman, but he emitted a vibe that could only be that of a man.

She laughed and said that there are no men on this island.
