Chapter7 The Dream
It's the sixth day of the trip. Thegroup is now on the boat that will take them to the last island of their tour,Taransay.
So what do you think of thisexperience? We've been here for nearly a week now.
It's great. I can do what I likedoing best - cycling, I mean - and at the same time I'mhelping people. It's fantastic, isn't it? And I've made a lot of newfriends.
I heard you scream last night.
Did I? I had a nightmare.
Oh… What was it about?
I was alone on a sailing boatduring a terrible storm. The sky was full of black clouds and it was very windyand the waves were huge.
Suddenly I fell into the water andI grabbed onto a piece of wood…
… and then I started swimming.I swam and I swam… until I saw some rocks. The sea was still very rough.If I had tried to reach the shore, I would have crashed into the rocks!
I was exhausted and I was about todrown. Suddenly somebody appeared on a rock. It was a strange figure, wearing along robe with a hood. I couldn't say whether it was a man or a woman.
I held out my hands for help. Ifonly that person had in turn held out his or hers, I would have been saved.
But that didn't happen. The figuredid not move a finger… it remained motionless. And I drowned.
后来，我就开始游泳…… 我一直游啊游…… 忽然看到前面出现了一些岩石。海面仍旧卷着惊涛骇浪。我要是想游上岸，肯定会撞在那些岩石上。
Oh, Sam, what an awful dream! I'msure it means something.
Hey, you two stopflirting… it's briefing time! Everybody on the front deck!
In a few minutes we'll be landingon Taransay. It's the remotest of the Outer Hebrides. Once the island waspopulated, but now only a few people live here. We'll be staying there forthree days.
What's the matter?
They look like the rocks in mydream.
Come on, Sam, It was only a dream.
