CHAPTER XXXVIII No! Richard!   

    [[[Quinlan hits Giddens with the rifle, knocking him out. Richard runs off. Quinlan shoots at him and chases him down the beach.]]]

    CAPTAIN: I said put that down!

    LILLI: No! Richard!

    [[[Richard runs out on the reef, and Quinlan follows. He shoots and misses, then continues on, and shoots and misses again. He falls and scrapes his face on the reef, then stands to shoot, but the rifle won’t fire. He runs after anyway.

    A shark swims in the channel between sections of the reef.

    Richard dives in the water. Quinlan throws the rifle at him, then jumps in. He can barely swim. Richard takes long, fluid strokes.

    He stops long enough to take the pants off, then keeps going. He makes it safely to the other side.

    Quinlan catches sight of the shark, and takes a knife out. The shark disappears, then bites him by the chest.

    Quinlan screams as the shark tosses him into the air and then bubbles rise as he is dragged down. The knife falls to the reef with a clank.]]]
