This is the conclusion of my short trilogy dealing with the Sea Gypsy Tribe in a post-Apocalyptic scenario. In order to understand it, I would encourage you to take a few minutes and read my two prior installments entitled The Stranger Arrives and The Shattering. Just scroll down the page and they await you.
Hello again, Stranger. Our medical volunteers have informed me that yesterday, for the first time since your arrival, you were able to speak. That delighted our tribe immensely. However, we were even more pleased to learn that the first words that you uttered were “Thank you.”
I was also told that your efforts to communicate seemed very painful. So the medical staff asked me to discourage you from trying to speak until the wound below your jaw has healed more completely. As for your efforts to write with that broken right hand of yours, we again urge you to be patient. However, your attempts with your left hand have brought considerable amusement to all of us. One nurse describes your scribbling as a cross between Japanese and Thai with a slight hint of Brooklyn.
