It's heart breaking, how can anyone treat people like this?

Calder turns to us,

"Welcome aboard my ship, The Oki!"

Oh my God, how are we going to get through this?

How can I help these people?

 

Can I even help them?.........

Calder begins to lead Will across the deck for a "tour" of some sort. This guy is really sick he's acting like he's showing real estate or something. But I really rather not tag along, I don't think I can walk by all these people without breaking down.

To be honest I don't know how I've been able to last as long as I have. It's just the sight of all these people, all these slaves, it's very overwhelming.

"Um Master, can I just stay here?" I point toward the edge of ship. I hope Will didn't hear the uneasiness in my voice and I hope he says yes.

Will turns to me with a blank face, but I've gotten pretty good at reading his eyes and know he's slightly concerned about me. His eyes have taken on a blue gray color resembling the water that surrounds us. After a few moments of him searching my face he finally answers.

"I guess that's fine just stay where I can see you, and don't wander off." His voice is very stern and demanding something I might have to get used to.

He then left with Calder and the rest of his men in tow. I feel relief but that doesn't last long. Because I suddenly start to feel all these different emotions go through me; sadness, being frighten, anger, tiredness, panic, depression, and some I cannot even begin to identify.

They're coming one after another, just as I identify one it suddenly switches to a totally different one. I'm paralyze on the spot trying to make them stop.

What's going on?

I slowly step to the edge of ship, and look out at the vast ocean that seems to stretch on forever, a magnificence sight indeed. The sky is filled with clouds that are all different shades of grey and look as if they'll release rain at any moment.

Normally I would find this sight mixed with the cool breeze calming, even peaceful. But peace is far from what I'm feeling, and something that I haven't felt since my kidnapping.

I start taking deep breaths of the oceans mist trying to calm all these confusing emotions.

What's wrong with me? "Calm down, calm down, I'm okay, I'm okay." I keep repeating to myself.

"Nothing’s wrong," I whisper while squeezing my eyes shut. Then I feel my eyes start to water, oh my god these emotions are so intense, now I'm about to cry.

Just as I think I'm about to lose it, I feel a tug on the upper part of my sweats. I jump slightly and look down immediately to find the source.

It's a little girl. Well I wasn't expecting that.

She has to be five or six years old. She has long dirty blond hair whether that's her natural hair color or she just hasn't had a proper bath in a while I'm not sure. And oh my god she has the cutest hazel nut, puppy dog eyes I've ever seen.
