A to Z: C is for Castaway

For A to Z 2015 I will be posting flash fiction, all random, all the crazy musings of a crazy mind. Hope you like them.
 
C is for Castaway

Day 8: Rest of the plane finally washed away. Was able to get as much off as I wanted before it did, although the hull would’ve been nice for a shelter; right now am making due with a make-shift tent from the parachutes. Keeps the bugs out, anyway. All in all, doing fairly well; all things considered.

Day 10: Haven’t seen any animal signs on the island. Not sure if that’s a bad thing or not. Plenty of fruit though; and fish. They practically swim right up to me; like they aren’t scared at all.

Day 14: Walked around the island today. Didn’t see another living thing.

Day 20: New shelter is up. Made sort of tepee out of some fallen trees and covered it all with the parachutes. Should work for the short-term.

Day 22: Saw a boat today. It didn’t stop.

Day 45: Still no living things. Fish have moved on. The Silence is here now.
