I'll be going
“I'll be going... sorry,” you weren't prepared to deal with the bagged or implied night in the captain's room.
“Understood, go.” Eric nodded his head towards the deck side. Dropping the jacket off your shoulders, you push yourself to the edge of the deck. Looking at the men one more time.
“I'm sorry,” you felt bad for them, their path seemed lonely. It wasn't one you were willing to take. “Goodbye.” Without a word more, you slid off the end of the deck, going into the water to further your journey. On your own, like you intended from the start.
