He felt light.
He couldn't explain the feeling, only knew that it was like he had been placed a float in space. With all that had occurred, all he could think about was how tired he was. He felt as if he could sleep from now until the end of time. As he closed his eyes the last thing he saw was a streak of red across the sky as blood red waters lapped on the shore.
He fell asleep with the gentle lapping in his ears, and the image of a young red haired girl at his side as they both slept on this shore of death.
