Many of you know I wrote some months ago a story to solve the mystery of the skeletons in the polar bear cave, the exploration of the DHARMA stations by Radzinsky and the period where he was living with Kelvin Inman painting the blast door map.

Today I'll show you the story about Henry Gale, the mysterious traveler who arrived to the Island approximately between October 9, 2003 and the last months of 2004. In an interview, the producers of Lost declined to say whether more information would be revealed about Henry Gale during Season 6 and they didn't solved his past during the show. So I thought, what if I write about Henry Gale's trip on his balloon? And suddenly came to my head great ideas to write a story about him. I hope you enjoy this new episode of Lost.

His friends, Jiyun, Fred and Robert were there to help him to get out of the balloon and give him the last instructions and navigation tools for the next stop in Honolulu.

Henry Gale faces the storm.

After the teams helped Henry to carry the supplies to the balloon in Honolulu, he was ready to travel to the next stop, located in Suva, Fiji.

In the afternoon, in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, Henry was taking a nap after many days of flying inside the basket. Suddenly, a walkie-talkie form the team of Honolulu starts to sound and a voice was calling him. He wakes startled and he asks what's going on. The voice tells him that a storm was approaching very quickly where the first balloons were flying and he must change the trajectory of the balloon, and tells him that he will fall back positions in the race, but this is the safest decision he could take. Henry disagree and tells him that he promised to his wife he will win the race and will make all the possible efforts for win the money because his wife deserves to live better without any kind of preoccupations with debts and rents. Then cuts the conversation, leaves the walkie talkie in the section of supplies of the balloon and increases the level of the burner and faces the huge storm. The other balloons obeyed to the order of the member of the team who warned them about the problems in the climate and they change the course. When the lightning flashes started to resonate in the clouds and rain was washing the envelope of the balloon and Henry's body, he started to shout out loud – This for you, Jenny! - and in that moment everything was engulfed in a flash of white light and then the balloon disappeared in the clouds.

At the Island

The unfortunate journey of Henry Gale (5)
An injured Henry crying in the ground after he fell from the balloon.

Still flying, the balloon of Henry was floating over a calm ocean in a sunny day without any cloud, near the shores of an island. Henry, who fainted by the strong flashes of the Island, awakes from the basket, stands, and looks to the shore of the Island, which was located some kilometers away, then looks behind to see if other balloons were near him, but none was arround him, even anyone of his competitors were in the horizon. Then he smiled and started to laugh of happiness thinking he was in the shores of Fiji, but his smile disappears when he realizes that the port of Suva wasn't where it was supposed to be, instead of that, they was a four-toed statue, when he sees this, a sensation of concern invades him from inside. Immediately takes the walkie-talkie from the section of supplies to inform the team he was lost in a strange island. But when he turns the device, a french woman starts to talk through the walkie-talkie, he tries to talk to her, but he realizes it was a recording. Worried, keeps it again in the section of supplies and increases the level of the burner to ascend and look better if they was signs of civilization in that place, but only he could saw a dense jungle behind the costs. Then, he decided to explore inland to find a village, and after one hour of flying, he sees from far an ancient building, so he directs the balloon to that place to ask for help, but the dwellers from the sanctuary started shooting to the balloon, many of the bullets pierced the envelope and the burner, forcing him to go for another way. When the burner finally failed, the balloon started to go down, crashing in some trees in the middle of the jungle, leaving the basket hanging many meters from the ground. Henry, tried to get out from there in the safest possible way, still in the basket, looked arround him and saw a vine near him, he approached as close as he could trying to reach the vine, but he slopped and he fell 4 meters to the ground, injuring his neck. Lying in the ground, Henry was crying, but not only for the pain he felt in that moment, he was crying because he failed his promise. In that time, looking to the envelope hanging in the branches of the trees, he decides not to surrender and he gets up from the ground, and still with pain in his neck, walks to find one of the beaches he saw in the last hours to start a signal fire and ask for help.

At the Temple

After the people from the Temple shot Henry's balloon, Dogen, the master of the temple, tells to his translator, Lennon to go to the Barracks with a group of 3 people, where Ben was living to tell him about the mysterious traveler that crashed in the jungle and ask him what they had to do.

At the evening of the next day, he wakes up and realizes he has been unconscious for almost a day, then he gets up from the ground and sits in a log, and then checkes the items he had in his pocket to find something that will serve to light a fire, but the only things he found were his wallet, and the pen he used for the annotations in the maps. So, he decided to write the last note to his wife if he died there trying to survive, then opens the wallet and he only found a Minnesota driver's license and a 20 $ bill, then he takes the pen and he starts to write in the bill:

Jennifer, well you were right. Crossing the Pacific isn't easy. I owe you a beer. I'm hiking to one of the beaches to start a signal fire, but if you're reading this, I guess I didn't make it. I'm sorry, I love you Jenny, always have, always will.

Yours, Henry.

And keeps the bill in his wallet and his pen in a pocket. Then he rises where he was sitting and starts to walk to find a beach and start the fire. Some metres away after walking many kilometers, he sees in the distance, a shore of sand and goes running to the beach and rest there a couple hours. After that, goes to border of the jungle and looks for branches, leafs and tinder. Once he gathered all what he needed to start a signal fire, goes to the beach and creates a small bonfire, the only thing he needed was light the fire, so he takes a piece of wood opened in half, then uses a stone to make a small hole in the middle of it, puts some tinder arround it and rapidly spins the branch in the hole. He was trying and trying for about two hours until the tinder was near the piece of wood began to ignite, then he stopped to spin the branch and gently, breathed to the small ember to increase the heat, and he added more tinder and finally achieved start the fire, then carried this to the base of the bonfire and the fire started to grow. Henry felt satisfied because he could made fire, but the only thing he needed was to find water and food, he was feeling weak for the thirst and hunger, so he decided to go back to the balloon, where he had some provisions inside the basket.
