Skills that you do not know until they are necessary

«If something motivates your need, it will make you discover qualities that you did not know and face with agility to meet your goals»

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

While for most, having gold doubloons was essential to face a planned feat, and being part of a well-designed commercial structure, for the eight enlightened ones it was a desperate attempt to meet their destiny without having to depend on anyone.

Evaristo pointed out: No man on the face of the earth and the seas will be able or will have had an opportunity like ours, we are privileged by forces beyond all understanding that have strengthened us.

They had already overcome the pain of enormous deficiencies and now they had the opportunity to do magic with their lives and achieve what no one would have dared because a unique power accompanied them, their hopes placed in the hands of a dream.

So everyone supported the builder skills that Patricio had, who discovered that with the rope tourniquet and the use of joints it would be easy to make a resistant raft, in the absence of nails, the ties between one wood and another when bending the barge was easy to prevent separations from sinking the ship.

Under that principle and with some elements that were easy to obtain in the nearby towns without being noticed, the eight enlightened ones worked with skill and under the direction of Patricio.

Zila told them with great confidence:

-Dayami has warned me that there are no islands along the way we will go, at least for a long stretch, but when we have to make repairs we will be safe on the back of sea beasts that she herself has contacted with help. of Bormanicus.

They all smiled and Evaristo pointed out:

-No man on the face of the earth and the seas will be able or will have had an opportunity like ours, we are privileged by forces beyond all understanding that have strengthened us.

At dusk they covered their humble but strong boat with grass and stubble and lit their bonfire to talk and enjoy each other’s company; their world would never be the same and each moment brought them closer to an unparalleled adventure.

Javier pointed out:

-Will we have to get a candle?

Santiago argued seriously:

-Every sail is a warning on the high seas that we can be located, we do not belong to any people, we are from different lands and those who deal with some are enemies to others, I do not think it is a good idea.

Jacobo nodded affirmatively and finally said:

-Any effort could be demolished by bad-tempered people, let’s leave that in the hands of magic, once they are placed on the skin of the water, we all know that we will have powerful help.

Diego raised his hands and exclaimed with joy:

-May each of our gods and deities guard and enlighten us!

They all got up and threw a fist of the earth to the ceremonial bonfire to make the fire dance with them, their illuminated smiles would be one of the fondest memories that they will keep in their souls forever.

When you manage in life to have a group that would do anything to defend you and shelter dreams and hopes, remember that life has put you on the right path.
