“That’s not the horizon as you’re used to it.”  Captain Enbarra stood next to the anchor, fingers nervously tapping.  “It’s the edge of the world.”

I peered at it.  “You’re sure you won’t go any closer?”

“Absolute.  You’re the one the Queen’s paying to hop over the edge.”

I tightened the harness around my waist and checked the connecting rope.  “Please remember to pull me in if I fire a flare.”

“For sure, mate.”
