In 1996 I started to work on cruise ships, then travelled the world for the next 15 years. I saw many wonderful places, had some great times and met some real characters.
I finished working on cruise ships in 2011, and since then I’ve settled in England, making my home in the North East. Life is good, but I still miss a little bit of scuba diving…

“You’re going to pay up,” Dave says to me.
We’re in his garden. I’m watching him working on his bicycle in the afternoon sun.
“I’m not joking, Mark,” he says. He stands up, moving towards me, holding the bicycle pump like he’s about to swing it.
“No!” I say, backing away. “Don’t!”
“You’re going to pay up,” he says. “And I mean soon.”
Awake. Jesus. My neck feels damp on the pillow. The alarm clock reads 2 a.m. Shit. I’ve not been asleep long.
My mouth tastes of booze. I drink a glass of water in the bathroom, then lie back down on my bed, the pillow turned to its dry side.

Did he do a favour for me? Or a job? It doesn’t feel like that. But he’s sure that I owe him something.
Why’s he being so nasty? I’m shocked. He’s supposed to be my friend. I’ve never seen this side of him.
It’s too early to get up, but I don’t want to go back to sleep just yet - I can still feel the cold hand of the nightmare.
If I can just stay awake a bit longer…
