Light at Sea

A red light shines out from the nearby lighthouse.  It barely manages to pierce through the heavy storm, and the captain of the haggard ship nearly misses seeing it.  With a sigh of relief, he turns the vessel away from the rocks and back into open water.

Less than a minute later, the ship lurches to a stop with the sound of metal shredding from the hull.  It has been gutted, and saltwater rapidly pours inside.  As the captain orders the crew to abandon ship, he looks back at the light.

It has grown larger, and it is drawing closer.
