Throughout the story he acts Nostalgic and reminisces about the times that he and Tokchae used to spend together when they were children. The crane had a friend the crab. Leah found out about it but before she could deal with Dladla, he was found dead in the bush stabbed in the back. The wind bore coldness with it, and the men began to shiver. After it had been discouraged from the pursuit the captain breathed easier on account of his hair, and others breathed easier because the bird struck their minds at this time as being somehow grewsome and ominous.

The waves came without snarling. It had veered from the north-east to the south-east. The spray, when it dashed uproariously over the side, made the voyagers shrink and swear like men who were being branded. No man, nor dog, nor bicycle appeared on the beach.

The shore was still afar. He tells her that They will be fine, and anyway, they are not children anymore.
