"He wasn’t able to get very far before he couldn’t take the pain and had to take a break. Once again, Maks put his paddle across his lap and looked at his finger. The cloth was now bloodstained. He didn’t even bother to look at the cut because he knew it was going to be worse from the rough cloth and from the paddle rubbing on it. Maks let out a large sigh, leaned back in his seat, and closed his eyes, “What am I going to-’’ His thoughts were interrupted by the sound of a splash a few yards behind him. "

When Maks is having is usual kayaking trip he gets a bad cut. He tries to treat it, but only makes it worse causing him to cut the trip short. On his way home he encounters a huge great white shark and has to fight for his life.
