Panic much quieter than before gripped him. This must be the thing that tilted the boat. There was no other explanation for the rapid lurches of such a huge ship; something even bigger had been toying with it, perhaps testing it. It hadn’t tipped as many people into the ocean as it had perhaps planned to, but there Seth was, a single morsel for some giant sea thing.

He didn’t have time to scream before he was three meters under the surface.
