Samuel had never been so happy as he was on that island. He had been boatwrecked on the island for a week, and the only thing to eat was the occasional fish that washed up onshore. But even those were starting to taste ordinary. He longed for something new, something exciting.
Then, one day, he saw a man walking down the beach. At first Samuel thought it was another survivor like himself, but as he got closer he saw that this man was different--he seemed nothing like Samuel. The man wore strange clothes and had a crooked nose. Samuel didn't want anything to do with him, but fate decreed otherwise.
The man stopped by Samuel's floating raft and offered him a piece of fruit from his bag. It tasted divine -- more juicy and sweet than any fruit Sam had ever tasted before. In an instant his mouthwatering hunger vanished and all that remained was intrigue and curiosity about who this stranger could be.
