Riley everett wished she had the internal fortitude to admire Starfall Point
as it rose in the watery distance. Unfortunately, she’d thrown up everything
in her body over the rail of the island’s midmorning ferry. She had no
fortitude left, internal or external.
The Loyal Retriever cut through the choppy blue waters of Lake Huron
with a surgical grace that should have been reassuring. Instead, Riley was
anxiety-sweating through the newly purchased cargo jacket necessary to
protect her from the brisk early May wind.
Brisk. Wind. In. May.
Her Floridian brain simply couldn’t comprehend those words being
Maybe it was only brisk to Riley? Maybe she was cold because she
was used to the soul-melting heat of Orlando? Maybe it didn’t matter
because she felt like she was going to throw up again.
Wisps from her chin-length cap of dark gold hair clung to her clammy
cheeks as her stomach attempted to turn itself inside out like a possessed
balloon animal. And the worst part was there was nowhere to hide. She’d
dashed for the ferry’s bathrooms just after the Retriever left the dock, only
to find one marked with an OUT OF ORDER sign and the other locked tight.
She’d had to hang over the railing to be sick, much to the gleeful horror of
the school group standing nearby.
It might have been easier if she’d been able to sit inside, away from the
sight of the churning waves, but all the seats inside the ferry cabin were
taken by semi-elderly tourists in some sort of discount group. It seemed
early in the season to brave the chill and the wind, even if the island was
considered one of the most picturesque spots in Michigan. She supposed
that’s why there was a discount.
Riley was left to sit on a peeling blue bench built into the exterior of
the main cabin, which seemed to magnify every pitch and roll of the boat by
the power of ten. And it was very difficult not to resent the group of eightto-ten-year-olds standing at what Riley considered to be an ill-advised
distance from the railing in their bright yellow Sunnyside Day Camp
windbreakers. They were whooping and screaming with every dip of the
hull like they were riding some epic roller coaster headed straight to Hades.
Oh, to be young and not have the taste of regurgitated breakfast burrito
coating one’s mouth.
“Is she gonna do it again?” one kid asked, shoving handfuls of rainbow
fruit snacks in his face. His obvious half-agonizing, half-hopeful state,
made Riley think of untold Jane Austen adaptations involving evil zombie
“It’s another ten minutes to the island. I’ll bet she’ll go one more time,
at least,” the boy’s little buddy, all ferret features and spiky auburn hair, said
as he eyed Riley intently.
