Kuto awoke to the sound of waves crashing against the shore. He groggily opened his eyes, squinting in the bright sunlight. He sat up, running a hand through his rusted red hair. His pompadour haircut was starting to get a bit shaggy.
As he got to his feet, he took in his surroundings. He was on a small island off the coast of Aruba. The island was uninhabited and there wasn’t much to do except lounge around on the beach or go for a swim.
He decided to go for a swim and dove into the clear blue water. The water was refreshing and helped wake him up fully. After swimming for awhile, he made his way back to shore and lay down on the sand, basking in the warm sun.
Suddenly, he felt something crawling on his stomach. He sat up quickly, brushed off whatever it was, and looked down at himself with disgust; he had been covered in sand fleas!
