Chapter 2: When in Rome... wait, where am I?

No idea where I am, no idea where to start, but I'm not dying just yet... Lets try and remember what happens in 'Castaway'... I immediately chuckle to myself and shout "WILSON!!!!!!!!!!" at the top of my lungs. It's not like anyone can hear me! I smirk and realize I could get used to this! But in all seriousness, first things first... I'll need firewood...

So I venture into the forest behind me and I discover a few twigs scattered around. Not sure if they'll prove flammable, but I'm sure all wood is flammable... Now for a place to settle. Clambering my way through the rain-forest floor, I step foot back onto the wispy sand and look along the coastline. I'll want to be in the shade more than anything because this heat will kill me if I aren't careful!

So I find a sandy spot which the omnipotent trees hang over, and I place my firewood there. I can tell this spot is facing North, the sun is no longer above me, but recedes to the left, or in this case, West. I could get used to life here, the trees provide plenty of shade, the breeze is quite soothing... all I need now is a drink. Something catches my eye to my right, and I glance quickly to discover... it was a coconut... I'd like a drink, yeah, but how am I gonna crack a coconut open??? And then I am reminded of 'Castaway' once again, and I mumble to myself "Not funny", hoping that some spiritual force heard me...

The End
