Toasted Cake 78: The Custom of the Sea by E. C. Ambrose

Toasted Cake 78! In which we swim with sharks. 

They dragged me into the lifeboat, fingers digging in to my arms. 

Originally appeared right here as the winner of the Tenebris Press Flash Fiction contest, 2012. 

E. C. Ambrose is the author of "The Dark Apostle" historical fantasy series inspired by 14th century medicine: when bleeding was a way to heal, and magic, a way to die.
