Foul weather had blown in. And from every direction it seemed. The island as of then had not come into our view. The Captain assured us that we were close, and added that it would be a good time for Elijah to do his “trick” again.
I started to protest his worldly understanding, but Elijah interrupted, told me to fetch his staff, go out to the bow, and there command the storm to cease.
I caught on immediately that this way would educate the Captain better than my words. And it was also the fulfillment for one of my dreams.
And to the amazement of those watching the storm blew itself out.
One of those watching was Stan.
