Early October

She knew. In her bones she knew they shouldn’t be there, and not just for legal reasons, but for all the tangled, convoluted nuances of maritime law that would undeniably stand in the way of ownership, should they find it. According to the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea, Canada shared maritime boundaries with Greenland and Alaska. That meant Admiralty Law regulations, plus anything involving old ships could be subject to the Abandoned Shipwreck Act. None of that mattered, though, did it? She’d already found it but hadn’t
followed the rules. Did she ever?

The captain had warned them of the storm, so she knew the risks and the timeline. Her gut told her she was too far in now to ensure enough air to reach the surface. But how could they possibly turn back knowing what they now knew, seeing what they’d seen? The unmistakable shape of a ship’s hull still shockingly intact, a spectral hand and wrist outstretched and frozen, pointing to a door, now corroded in rust and thick barnacles, barely attached to its hinge. Around the front, a shocking face glared, jaw open, of maybe an original sailor or more recently a salvage diver, knowing what fate would become him, recognizing his killer and certain of no escape.

The eyes, laughing almost in the hollowed skull, had found it – the artifact no one in over two hundred years had thought of. She pictured the skeleton fragment as a living being, diving with antiquated equipment, slithering through the tight opening without his tank so he could grab it quickly and return in time to breathe. How many divers had perished from these temptations before? If he’d found it, that meant he’d done his research, knew exactly where to look, and had a cool enough head to hold the weighty secret in his heart. But how could he have known that one random British sailor had earlier in his life been a privateer on board a pirate ship and kept a king’s ransom worth of valuables hidden in the hull for twenty years? How could the man have known this… without being the man himself? Or maybe an ancestor.

Just one more moment, a few more feet and finagling her way through the narrow hole in the rusted hull. This had to be the place; it even looked like all her years of research foretold. In the flash of a moment, she felt the pulse of that threshold, knowing this was the line, the same line the dead diver before her had stood.

Now or never.

The storm on the surface made it the wrong day to dive. For her, it was the right day to die.
