current song: the songs and daydreams playing in my mind

Saru leaned on the tall wooden railing at the bow of the ship and stared out at the crystal clear ocean. The sun shone brightly overhead. It couldn't be much later than 10 o'clock. Since she got the crew moving again, they were making steady progress. If it continued at this rate, they'd be at the island in no more than three days.
Saru closed her eyes again and listened to the sounds of the wind. Images flowed into her mind of the things they might encounter, the fabled dangers that scared everyone else off before they set foot on land.
From the back of her mind, she thought she heard something else.
Music.
A child's voice, singing a low and eerie song.
A memory from long ago.
Then as quickly and silently as it had come, the song was gone.
Saru opened her eyes. Her gaze fell back upon the waves below.
