He had gone there to escape the life he was living. To find something new and hoped that would be enough.
Enough for him to find peace.
So he took his dog and got the job as a light keeper. He liked the work. It was easy, slow-going, something which gave him time to think.
The stormy seas calmed him and gave him something to look at. Something to dream about.
Mac, his dog, used to run down on the beach and out into the water chasing after whatever fish he could find.
It was a perfect place for him. A place where he found peace. And a place where he felt like he belonged.
It was a place that he never wanted to leave.
And yet, one day, the news came which changed his life forever.
Someone else was coming to his island.
