You can just tell it's going to be one of those days, when you wake up and suddenly something feels different. Then as you make a search of The Village you discover that everyone's left the place except yourself! Imagine, everyone escaping The Village but Number 6. What else should he do but take advantage of the situation and escape. But the task is harder and more difficult for him. But Number 6 is a skilful man, fit, energetic and strong. Felling tress, building his own transportation and makes a voyage into the unknown, putting his navigational skills to the test seeing as he has no idea where he’s sailing to having no idea where he is sailing from! In fact Number 6 is put to so much trouble, his endurance put to the test during a long sea voyage, to then face his own doubts when back in London, that he might have saved himself the trouble. And in the end simply to end up back where he started! He could have simply remained in The Village, and waited for someone to eventually put in an appearance, as presumably someone would have to have done at some point. But that wouldn’t have been the way for Number 6, who as a man of action isn’t one to just sit about simply to and wait and see, never able as he is, to pass up on any given opportunity!
Be seeing you
