Delano comes across a beaten up ship, ripped sails, seems to be moving on its own. The ship may have been through a storm b/c of torn sails, acts like a ghost ship.

Foreshadows upcoming events about wanting to figure out the secrecy about the ship.
It was a dark and stormy night. Why we have to do this tonight, that is beyond me. Ask our squad deputy commander Joongsa Kim, equivalent to a Warrant Officer of my homeland, about the reason. I had my reason: It was stormy tonight, and to me, that was enough to feel like stepping out of the mission. As a member of the Joint Task Force 2, I was trained to withstand the dark, and so would have my American comrade Sergeant Hunter, who is from the well-known Delta Force, and the South Korean soldiers Warrant Officer Kim and Sangbyeong Jung, equivalent to a Corporal of the Canadian Armed Forces, who are from the 707th Special Operations Battalion.
I got on horseback, holding the letter addressed to Mary Rogers tightly in my hand, as I made the horse reach his highest speed. As the hooves pressed against the jagged road, I told myself “today is the day, Samuel”. I hoped finally my mother and sister would deliver a letter back to me. Once I reached my destination, I hopped off the horse and handed my letter to the Postal Rider. “Are there any letters being delivered to Georgia?”

I agree with what you say about de las Casas "narratives were only effective to an extent. " I think it was admirable what he did do because the atrocities may have continued for much longer had he not spoke up. In speaking up, Casa was "accused of treason and even endured charges of heresy" (Bartolome De Las Casas 39). Casas went into seclusion for 7 years and then returned to political activity after which time, laws began to take effect to protect the Indians (39). I see de las Casas as an early activist and social reformer.
When I woke up I felt like a new person, yet there was something missing. Zaroff was gone and as far as I knew, there was nothing left to fear. I didn’t really know what to do next because I needed Zaroff to help me survive on this island and now he’s dead. I paced around for a little bit and then realized that I should probably eat. I went down the stairs to the kitchen and prepared some breakfast.

Imagine if five adolescents die in a blaze with no clue as to where their bodies went; would you not be suspicious? This is exactly what happened to five children in the Sodder family.

Numerous events led up to the tragic disappearance or murder of the five Sodder children, and what happened that fateful night remains an enigma.
“Tahoe” means “big water” in the local native American language. If it was up to me, I would prefer to call it “deep water.” My fun day at Lake Tahoe actually began perfectly. One of my best friends, Geetika, was joining me and my family on a day trip to the one and only Lake Tahoe. We were both 12 years old and buzzing with excitement.
