"What do you say we do?" Harvey asked.

The skull did not reply. Snowpuff's skeletal tail might have wagged. Or it might have been the wind.

Or just a hallucination. He supposed it was common for someone stranded on this island to go crazy at some point in time. His old master would understand. Everyone would understand.

Except for himself. If he pressed the dratted button, he would be able to save himself. But he didn't. He couldn't bring himself to it.

Harvey stared at the red button and then to his slightly red fingertip. Red on red. On the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea.

He just wouldn't press the button because he was crazy. Yes, he was. The rocket was there to shoot him away from the capsule and into some sort of civilization.
