When Guinea-pigs Fly

Sukki shivers in the water. She hates water. Not to drink obviously but being immersed in it.
She curses herself for her cowardice. She’d left it too late to land near the island and had drifted too far past to make it back.
Clinging to the partially deflated air-sack, all she can do is wait and hope that Mendez’ friends will come and rescue her.
She feels quite optimistic. Mendez was funny looking but had looked after them when able and had proved to be a good and loyal friend.
Surely his associates would be no different?
Allowing herself a small smile, Sukki prepares herself for the long, wet wait.

Hmmm....let's see, the only person in the party that has a realistic chance of saving her is Bodush. She is doomed.

So, is she dead yet, or what?
