On the island, everything is perfect. The sun rises in a sky filled with dancing shapes; the wind, water, and trees shelter and protect those who live there; when the nine children go to sleep in their cabins, it is with full stomachs and joy in their hearts. And only one thing ever changes, on that day each year when a boat appears from the mist upon the ocean carrying one young child to join them - and taking the eldest one away, never to be seen again.
Too many unanswered questions

Don’t Waste Your Time
It’s really just a lot of back and forth...should I or shouldn’t I? Is it my fault or not? Could I really do it? Yes, I can do it! No, I can’t do it. Yes, I can! No, I can’t! On and on...
There you go. That pretty much sums it up.
