It has been an eternity and at this juncture, the glinting of our bones serves as a signal flare into the ether. By now all our flesh has nearly rotted and fallen off. There are quite a few more birds that follow us as well. Some large amount of time passes, and we notice in the distance what appears to be a small biplane. We see it as it periodically blocks out the sunlight. It passes between the bones of the contraption and it takes us a moment to realize it’s not the shadow of the plane in the distance but the plane itself. It’s a miniature biplane, a two-seater. We watch it exit the contraption and putter a few hundred meters more down the shore. As we run to catch up to it I realize the people inside must be terrified.
