Towards the end of the story of '3 Skeleton Key', the plot becomes quite eventful. The tugboat hat had arrived at the scene of the lighthouse with the filthy creatures swarming around. The rats had been enjoying the fresh cut meat, but little did they know that all of their bliss would come to an end. The tugboat was lined with explosive material. Right as the majority of the furry critters had boarded the small vessel, the rescuers had begun the process of the extermination of the dangerous rodents. Then, it was in that moment the ship blew up with everything aboard, rats and all. The three men that had initially been victims of nature's threats, became the threats to nature. The three men then were returned to solid, dry land safely. Itchoua had passed from the wounds and bites caused by the rats. Le Gleo had been sent to a mental asylum, and the Narrator was in fine condition after treated properly. He in fact, returned to the lighthouse to finish his 22-month term he had initially signed up for. There is no quite telling of what happened from there, but all in all, at least the small key wouldn't have been known for the six skeletons lying about the waters.
Wait for me!
I'M NOT INSANE, I SWEAR!
As soon as the vicious creatures sense the meat, they scurry to feast upon it. They get on and begin to indulge.
The tugboat full of fresh cut meat and vermin was blown up killing off the majority of the rats and sending the rest flying for the blood-thirsty sharks to consume.
