Noah doesn't consider the sea home. It's a challenge which he needs to overcome. It's the way to escape his miserable day-to-day, fighting just to keep his head above water. He wants to save himself and his mom, but he can't- so he'll have to save this other world instead. Astrid is the only light in that dark, deep ocean- at least, that's what it feels like. It looks like he might have more than just her in his corner. He still isn't sure what Marin wants from him. She talks in riddles. Things are just complicated, now. His life used to be simple- not easy, but simple- and now it's a web of secrets and lies that he can't begin to untangle. He hopes that he can find the line through it all that keeps everyone safe. Until then-
Until then, he dreams.
This dream is a little different than usual.
