In the spring of 1899, Henry Rochester boards a ship on the docks of New York

uninvited.

Excerpt

One day, when the sun was preparing to center itself in the sky, Henry felt still,
peaceful somehow, as if the water had stopped moving him. Henry slowly opened
his eyes to find himself lying on his stomach, his hands pressed into the sandy
shore beneath him. He moved his fingers, and as they dug into the damp ground,
his face lifted. Holding that small clump of wet sand in the air caused Henry
to look forward, where he discovered a tropical island in the midst of the sea.

In astonishment, Henry staggered to his feet, not minding the waves that still
flowed against the back of his knees. Pushing the hair from his face, Henry
crawled towards the lush paradise, finding it hard to move on such weak
muscles. His mouth hung open, so full of hunger and thirst that he yelped in
delight once he discovered a table of food, covered with exotic fruits, leafy
vegetables, and fine grains.

There was a small wooden shack, just bordering the area where Henry ate like a mad
man, shoving as much sustenance as he could into his mouth at once. He closed
his eyes, taking a thankful breath, as he had never felt so grateful for food
in his entire life.

Except for the small shack and table where Henry had found the food, the rest of the land
remained a tropical beach. From what Henry had noticed so far, a forest began
where the sand ended, and if he were to walk deeper, he might find running
water.

Taking one last piece of fruit, Henry stepped towards the shack, whose door frame was
covered only by a transparent sheet of white fabric. He moved closer, for
behind the cloth he saw a young woman sleeping, her body outstretched on a
small rectangular section of bedding against the wall.

He took another step, only to make out the image of her face, framed in a glossy
mane of raven black hair. However, with that step, a deep, haunting growl
sounded from the border of the jungle. Just as quickly as Henry had shifted his
eyes to observe the noise, a black panther, long and sleek, emerged from the woods.
Fearless, the creature soared through the air and pounced on top of Henry.
Before he could understand what was happening, the snarling black cat held an
enormous paw over him, and then swiped its claws across his chest.

Henry wailed in panic and terror, using his arms to push the cat off him, as it
pinned him to the ground by the flat of his back. The creature clawed at
Henry’s stomach in protest, while the young man did
the best he could to protect his face.

During the struggle, Henry had never felt so near the bottom of the food chain in all
his life. He was paralyzed with fear as the great cat hovered over his body,
with such a close distance that no human ever lived to talk about. But what
terrified Henry the most, above the shiny, slimy white fangs, were the
panther’s piercing green eyes, so alive with the greenery of the forest, that
they could have been cut from the leaves of a vine for all he knew. They were
so perfectly round and rigid, that they nearly looked like stones, though not
the exact color of emerald. And yet it was these cat’s eyes, those jungle eyes,
which made his heart stop.

“Jade,”
a soft, transcendent voice called from above. The cat retreated immediately,
slowly walking away from Henry.

Sunlight shone on Henry’s face as he lay flat, still on the ground. He lowered his eyes,
horrified by the blood stains on his white ocean-soaked shirt. But then, the
face of a lovely woman stood before the sun, blocking out its light. Henry
looked up at her, taking in the long, silky black hair; golden, sun-kissed
skin; and green eyes – so much like the jungle he had just discovered.

She narrowed her eyes, looking over Henry’s body as he felt her pulling him into a
trance, mesmerizing him with her beauty. Then, for he had not seen it coming,
Henry felt a tremendous pain enter the side of his head. All of a sudden, he
noticed an object in her hand that she had just bludgeoned him with. But before
the blue sky faded to black, the last thing Henry remembered was the natural
hue of her glistening green jungle eyes.
