Drabble: West To The Dawn, Part 2

West To The Dawn, Part 2

...So we loaded up the outrigger sailing canoes and sailed west. Just over the horizon, we met with horror. We are a seafaring people, and we all know all the islands of the great sea. But they were wrong now. Some were burnt beyond recognition, covered in a thin layer of ash; others were gone entirely.

Then one by one we became ill, our hair falling out in great clumps. Whatever magics had killed our gods (for surely that is what had happened) lingered malevolently.

I know that I shall die here, but if the gods are gone, why live?
