One evening after dinner, as the sun was set across the sea, Marlow began telling to us one of his stories about his life as like a sailor. In the fading light he pointed to a long jagged scar on his own strong arm, and said: ‘I was being working on a passenger steamer in South China, in shark infested waters, when the ship hit a reef, which tore a great hole in the side. The water it began to rush in through the hole, and all of the crew realized that we had had to get the passengers off quickly, before the ship was sank. We lowered the lifeboats over the side, and helped the people into them. At the last, everyone was safe, except one woman who was too many scared to leave the ship. I had to go and fetch her because of the ship was just about to go down. She held on to my neck, and we jumped into the sea. Just at that moment a shark attacked to us! I tried hard to fight it off, but it managed to bite this hole in my arm. In the end one of the sailors shot it, and we were been saved.’
