‘Could you please give me directions to the ocean’ she asked with her croaky voice ‘I need to find him’. Hair wet. Barely clad. Her legs wrapped up in a turquoise robe which looked odd - scaly. The question seemed quite absurd, as it looked as though it couldn’t have been too long, before our encounter, that she had been in the ocean. I attempted to answer as calm and collected as possible, given the odd circumstances. ‘There are a few options’ I answered. ‘I need the easiest way in’ she replied. ‘There is no easiest way in. Directions are merely options, at least both are just as fast. The choice is entirely up to you’. Which ever way you choose, you will get there. There, where you need to be. In the ocean. .
