A plague has befallen the island, poisoning the entire population of tiny natives. Even my Co-Captain has been affected. I remain the only one left standing. I fear what may happen when this sickness inevitably takes me too as, while the tiny natives are incapable of caring for themselves regularly, they now require even more intensive care. Add to this the fact that sickness of the smallest kind reduces my Co-Captain to nothing more than a groaning lump of flesh, and you have an island teetering on the precipice of disaster. If I too succumb, this place is as good as lost.
I cannot fall.
