Introduction

Open Ocean Slash! The nose of the huge antagonistic fish pierces his skin like a knife through butter. He moans and screeches for only a minute, but feels like a lifetime. His whole future at sea shines before him as a blurry disarray of fear and pain. It was a cold and dreary day in the endless moors of the Scottish highlands. Kazuya's eyes shone bright over the faithless and barren land. The flocks of sheep are a welcoming sight to Kazuya: a lone fisherman struggling to get to the path. Jin, the brother of Kazuya, awaits his arrival in the small fishing shack in the valley. The potent smell of raw, discarded fish overwhelms Jin's senses so he waits outside under the watchful eyes of the Aonach Eagach. Kazuya, now on the path outside the run down shack questions, "Any buyers?" "Nope, not today and probably not ever," replies Jin. "Why do we even try?" wonders Kazuya. "We can't make a decent living out of this business, we need something other than cod and haddock" argues Jin. "What fish can we sell instead?" said Kazuya. A week later Kazuya and Jin still had no sells. ...read more.

Kazuya and Jin Mishima admire Bryan's sailing ability, his power, skill and strength; his courage, passion and communication. Ten years of struggle and heartbreak just blown away in Bryan's sails. After another two weeks of suffering and preparation they were ready. This was to be the biggest journey in all they're lifetime. The ship named Virgo was grand. The stern of the boat was as large and commanding as a shark is to a goldfish. The mammoth sails were laced with the finest silk there ever was. It was predicted that it would take two days to get to the correct position, to catch the marlin going over mountainous waves, through the strongest winds and the most powerful current. Just leaving the dock on the Virgo, they can slowly see the Isle of Skye slowly go down into the distance. The waves progressively getting larger, hit the boat with extreme force. Its huge under belly pushes through the water like a child wades through the sea and it rocks side to side like a cradle rocks in the wind. ...read more.

Conclusion

Suddenly a tight pull throws Kazuya forward, water gushes up from all sides as the graceful marlin leaps out of the water. But not for long. It unhooks and swims away. Another hour passed with no exciting catches. The evening soon becomes dusk and dusk becomes night, but the three fishermen don't give up without a fight. Once again the line gets pulled, but no great excitement and once again the marlin leaps from the ocean. Slash! The nose of the huge antagonistic fish pierces his skin like a knife through butter. Bryan's voice moans and screeches for only a minute but feels like a lifetime. His whole future at sea shines before him as a blurry mess of fear and pain. After the initial strike the marlin goes back into the water but vaults back and strikes Bryan once more, this time throwing him into the deep ocean. With no knowledge of sailing or where they were, they were stuck, forever. Jin being the younger brother was more emotional than Kazuya as they realise they were stranded with little food or drinkable water. They couldn't get off the empty ship, and once again they're lifelong ambition shattering, the ocean prepared to claim another victim. ...read more.
