Chapter 5 - The Bonfire

The Bonfire The bonfire was blazing as high as the Far Horizon roof poles and people were gathering more junk to make it blaze even higher. When the fire got too close to the generator Herb yelled, "Lets get this thing out of here before something happens."

Cappy's Generator

Rick had reached his boat, Abandon, and was lifting the boy aboard.  His boat cat, Flog, was hanging over his shoulder watching and reached out a paw to touch the bruised face.

Back on the beach, Cappy produced, from somewhere, the coconut milk and pineapple juice needed for the Pain Killers and Sammy said, "Guess we will just have to live without the ice and other stuff."

Then she was knocked to the ground by the force of the explosion!
