The Lighthouse Keeper
There is a light at the end of the world; someone must maintain it.
“Rule number four: never leave this island on your own.”
“Because you won’t get far, trust me.”
“Mmm-kay.” Was that a threat or a warning? I don’t think either made me feel any better, but the latter had a challenge ring to it. I had no sea lore and wasn’t the most comfortable person on water and yet ‘we’ll see about that,’ was all I kept thinking.
“Rule number five—”
“How many more are there?” I interrupted him. He gave me one of his patent squint-glare.
“It’s the last one,” he answered, “and it’s the most important one. Rule number five: when I go to bed, you go to bed. No questions asked. You shut all doors and windows, blow all lights out and there’s no getting up until dawn.”
After a terrible event, Jonah wakes up in a strange house owned by an even stranger man named “Sticks”. A new reality sets in: he is stranded on an island in the middle of the Atlantic! Waiting for a boat to come rescue him, Jonah takes part into the island’s everyday routine, but odd occurrences start to pile up and the truth becomes undeniable: this is no ordinary island. And what started out as a surreal dream will soon turn into an all-too-real nightmare...
