Chapter 165 Left
- When they arrive at the boat, they notice a barbecue party going on among the captains of the different ships. Michel grins broadly when he sees them coming. “Aahhh, now we know why you didn't want to come to the hotel, Michel. The party is clearly at the boats and not ashore," chuckles Andre. The men greet each other with a bro-hug and sit down to join in.
- Michel brings them some glasses of whiskey, introduces them to his colleagues and the party continues. Later a number of ladies slide in and the group decides to sail to one of the islands for a swim. When they are in the open sea, Aziel goes to the deck and looks thoughtfully over the water. The last time he took a vacation to the Caribbean alone was to vent his frustration after Loraine decided to trade Danner for Fellogan and left him waiting for her again. He then understood that it would take a few more years before he could try again to show her his love. That actually became a reality. And when he finally got her after years of waiting, that Danner came back to thwart him.
- While he is musing, he suddenly feels a warm hand over his waist. He grabs it right away and gently pushes it away from him. To the softness of the caress, he knows that it must be one of the ladies who sailed along. "You can talk to me, but you’re not allowed to touch me," he lets her know without looking at her. She comes to stand next to him, her face turned to him. “You stand so lonely here while it's cozy inside and in the back”, she whispers to him. “What worries can a rich, handsome man like you have? You have the world at your feet, can have any beautiful woman you desire.”
