A sunken treasure yields unfathomable terror...
“If I’d rejected Garin, I know for certain I would be dead now.”
“Garin became your sword then,” Annja said.
“That’s one way of looking at it, I guess. He came along at just the right moment, much like the sword did with you. I guess that’s one of the great mysteries of life, how things seem to happen at just the right moment.”
“No coincidences,” Annja said. “That’s too easy an explanation. And I’ve seen enough to not believe in coincidence anymore.”
“It does seem to be the crutch for the unimaginative.” Sheila smiled. “Garin told me you
were something else.”
Annja smirked. “That’s only because he’s been trying to seduce me for years.”
“There aren’t many who can resist him,” Sheila said.
“I never claimed it was easy,” Annja replied with a laugh.
“You’re honest,” Sheila said. “I appreciate that.”
“So the question now seems to be how do we deal with the shark terrorizing this boat and who would dive?”
“You’re going to have to deal with it, Annja. You’re going to have to kill the shark so we can get to the treasure.”
