CHAPTER XXVIII The color! Its the same as the sky!

    RICHARD: How do you catch fish with that spear?

    QUINLAN: Its not a spear, mate.

    RICHARD: What is it?

    QUINLAN: Its a rifle. Blow a mans head right of his shoulders.

    [[[One of the native sailors helps the captains daughter, Sylvia, onto land. Shes beautiful, with brown hair and pale skin, well-done make-up, and a nice dress.]]]

    SYLVIA: Castaways! How exciting!

    CAPTAIN: They seem to be an odd mixture of knowledge and ignorance. Oh, and uh, their attire is a little bit- well its quite. . . sparse.

    SYLVIA: Oh!

    [[[They approach. Lilli a bit and stares at ribbons around Sylvias waist. She looks at them both curiously.]]]

    SYLVIA: Is anything wrong?

    LILLI: The color! Its the same as the sky!

    SYLVIA: Pure silk.

    [[[She takes two of the ribbons from the bundle around her waist and hands them to Richard and Lilli.]]]

    SYLVIA: With my compliments. And one for your brother.

    LILLI: Oh, hes not my brother. Hes my husband.

    SYLVIA: Your husband?!

    [[[Lilli and Richard are absorbed in the ribbons. Sylvia looks at her father, who raises his eyebrows skeptically.]]]

    [[[They all stand on the hilltop by Sarahs grave. Lilli holds flowers.]]]

    LILLI: Mother died six years ago.

    CAPTAIN: How do you follow the years?

    [[[As Richard speaks, Sylvia stares at him with a calculating smirk on her face.]]]

    RICHARD: She taught us. We count the moons, we know that twelve full moons are one year.

    LILLI: We have Christmas and Thanksgiving, and Easter, although were not exactly sure we celebrate them on the right days.

    [[[Quinlan stares at her, admiring her beauty, with a look just as plotting as Sylvias.]]]

    CAPTAIN: Its utterly amazing, the two of you all these years in this remote, God-forsaken place.

    LILLI: Not God-forsaken, Captain Hilliard. Not God-forsaken at all.
