It must be a sick joke; I wanted to believe that their account had been hacked. Or I must have misunderstood. Mikael and Lena were one, and now half of the equation has suddenly vanished. We take our lives for granted.
We take each other for granted. But… we close our minds to that little problem. For a long time we had no idea how Lena had drowned. The words on his website merely told us that Lena had drowned in an accident near to the north pass of the Fakarova atoll; and so we assumed that she had fallen overboard while the boat was entering or leaving the lagoon. My mind created all sorts of likely scenarios — and then it dismissed them. In the event, we finally learned that Lena had fallen overboard while the boat was on a mooring. She had cooked supper and the couple had enjoyed a few glasses of wine… and when he awoke at dawn, Mikael found that Lena was not in the bed.
She was not on deck either, but the dinghy was still hanging astern. He found her floating in the shallow waters close to the white strand.
Seemingly, Lena went on deck during the night, perhaps to gaze at the moon rising from the sea. The boat is fitted with runners — pieces of rigging wire which aid in supporting the mast while the boat is beating but which get in the way while the boat is going downwind; and thus, on that point of sailing, they are allowed to hang loose.
