Quickly you get into the boat, as Dr. Dragon revs up the engine. The boat beings to luge its way out of the boathouse. You can make out Kathy coming down the steps and onto the dock, waving and shouting to you. The boat sails past Willard Smith's body, which slowly sinks under the surface.

Looking up, you can see the nozzle of the shotgun on the ledge of the 2nd floor window; pointed towards your boat! BLAM! BLAM! Thankfully, all the shots seem to miss. Jennifer must not be good at long distance shooting.

"Crap!" Fumes Diane, "That crazy cow knows what's up. I'm going to rev this thing faster."

She speeds up the boat and brings it out into open water. Unfortunately, her efforts seem to be exhausting the boat's fuel supply. Furthermore, the gold in the boat adds extra strain on the boat, making the craft heavier.

Overall, the elements contained on board contribute to the reduced performance of your boat. In the distance, you can make out another boat, with two figures on board quickly gaining towards you.

(Surprised no-one's replied on this before now!)

Ask the Doctor and Tobias what they think we should do!

You indicate to the others that your boat is noticeably slowing due to the weight of the gold.

"Maybe we should throw some of it off?" Suggests Tobias, "What good is it to us if it will get us killed?

"No!" Insists Diane, "Don't touch my gold! Let's just keep going. I will keep a lookout for any detour if I can to shake them off."

"Alright, Doc, we'll keep the gold, but you better start doing a loop-dee-loop to confuse them!"

"Loop-de-loop!?" Exclaims Diane, "Are you nuts!?"

"What choice have we? We are top-heavy, and they're gaining on us!" You point out.

Hesitant, but left with little option, Diane relents, and spins the boat around in a 180...

...and then, this happens.

Image


You fall backward, hitting your head on some gold bricks, and thwacked in the back of head of what you think feels like the propeller blade, but was probably just the rough end of a keel. It's enough to make you pass out momentarily, and minding you are already still in pain from being shot in the leg earlier.

However, you manage to consciously float to the surface and find yourself in open water surrounded by the remains of the two boats.

Image


Quick! Better think fast!

Swimming to the right, you push past the ruined remnants of the hull, still bobbing at the surface....coming closer, you come to a length of rope just hanging at the surface of the water. On the rope is a pale ladies' shoe; not unlike the kind worn by Dr. Dragon. There's no sign of her about.

You take the rope, and feed it back, tracing your path in the water to where you originally were. The water is cold and it's hard to substain keeping yourself above the water. You are also getting a bit drowzy from the stress of the events of tonight. You wonder if there is a shore close by, even uninhabited land would suffice if it was out there. You wonder too how close your boat made it to the harbour where Zuki's yacht first departed from. You seem to seem to recall his boat being off-shore for the better part of the evening, but then, it may had just been going in circles before it sank.

You call out into the abyss,

"Hello!? Help! Anyone alive?"

A moment passes and suddenly, an arm shoots up from the water and grabs you around the neck. His beefy grip restrains you tightly.

"Hey!" You cry, but your voice gets muffled into their.

In the distance peering over, who you presume must be Tobia's arm, you see Kathy trying to support herself on some buoyant wreckage.

You suckle upon his arm.

"Mmm, that's nice." Softly moans Tobias, "Just suck as much as you need to. Shhh. It will be alright. Shh. Shh."

"Agreed" replies Toby.

He paddles on ahead towards Kathy and what looks like be Jenny Harrington leaning against the wreckage.

"Wait!" You cry out after him. You try to catch up, yet you are still injured and thus, slower. You lost your splint of wood that you were using as a support for your leg, but as you are in the water, it would be useless to you.

As you attempt to reach the other three, something bobs in your path. You try to grab on, and to your horror, you realize you can see in the increasing light of morning that the object in the water is none other than the now putrefying corpse of little Peter Ballinger! Somehow his body must had been carried off by the tide.

"Ah!" You cry out.

Clearly, Peter is still bound with that dreadful wire that apparently killed him hours ago...
