Daniel Everhart and the Skylands of Caterra
Alyx leads me through a thick stand of trees that borders a lago, or lake with a quay, which means dock. Funny how some of their words are similar to Earth words.
“I want you to try moving something more substantial.” He looks across the quay at several anchored crafts.
“You want me to move a boat?” I ask.
“On Caterra, they are called ketches. Let us start small.” Alyx points to a one-man ketch.
I climb in, and it sways side to side. “Not very stable.”
“Or hefty. Can you move it across the quay?”
“I think so.”
“Make sure you reattach immediately, Siralam. If you leave half of yourself here, you’ll end up in the water.”
I think about that a minute. That makes sense.
I concentrate hard, and the ketch and I appear low in the water, on the other side of the quay. I reattach right away, but as it turns out, it doesn’t matter because I land the boat sideways. It capsizes, and I end up under it.
