He tried treading water again and found that it worked. He was able to remain upright, in place. The only problem now, he realized, was how to get to the boats to keep from drowning. But if he went back to the boats, Nilo told himself, he would be delivering himself once more into the hands of his assailants, and that was certain death. He would have to, somehow, get to shore. But that too was impossible. The shore was a mile away at its nearest point. He could never reach it. He felt panic rising in his throat like a swollen lump of flesh, and he fought to keep from retching.
He remembered what happened—the shame of it, the pain of it—and for a moment he said a prayer that it had all been a bad dream. But it had not been. Nilo knew that and there was no use pretending. Slowly, Nilo remembered Fredo and what he had done to the burly fisherman. He half-smiled at the memory. The sun was coming up, far off to his right. He had drifted to the west during the night, drifted away from Castellammare and the men he had to kill. That was bad. By now every fisherman along the coast must have learned that Fredo was dead, and they would all be looking for him, them and the Carabinieri and all of Fredo’s family.
