He was not bitter with the turn of events.

When they had embarked on the journey they knew that it could end in a disaster for everyone who had tried to reach El Dorado had perished.

Most of his friends had succumbed to diseases. But he would not stop.

A storm broke out and the ship tossed like a cork in the waves.

When he woke up he was on the land and all alone. He got up and stumbled on.

Out of nowhere a glorious, gilded man appeared before him. Although wonderstruck, he felt the stab in his heart.
