CHAPTER 11 – BOOK

I need to make some furniture. I need a chair and a table. I use the wood from my rafts and the ship. It takes five days to make them. Then, I make more furniture for the cave. I put my clothes and guns in the cave too.

I am very happy when my work is finished. The cave is comfortable now. Everything is well organized. I can easily find what I need.

I decide to write a book about my life on the island. I describe my days in the book. I start with my first day on the island. I write everything what I remember.

I also write what I think. It is good when I write my thoughts on paper.

When I start, I write one page every day. But when I get to the present, I write only one page every week. I write only important things.

After some time on the island my life is well organized. But my life is never boring. I have always some work.

Every morning, I walk around the island. Then I work. I have lunch at noon. Then I sleep, but not very long. Then I continue with my work. I relax or I write my book in the evening.

I make my cave bigger and bigger. I want to have a big cave.

The cave is my kitchen, living room and sometimes a bedroom.

When the cave is finished, a lot of earth falls from one side. I am not in the cave when it happens. If a lot of earth falls on me, I can die.

I clean the cave. Then I decide to put long boards on the sides and also on the top. I don’t want to have this accident again. This work takes one week.

In December, I continue with my work in my small camp. The weather isn’t very good. It rains all days. But it is still warm. So I work inside. It is never cold on the island. It is good for me.

At the end of December, I kill a goat. I also hurt another goat. Her leg is broken. The goat can’t walk. I take the goat home. I help the goat.

After two weeks, the goat is not scared. The goat eats from my hand.

In January, I travel through the island. I find more goats in the centre of the island. The animals are very shy. It is difficult to get close to them.

I want to domesticate some goats. I only need a good opportunity for it. I have a plan.

The next day, I return with my dog. I think that my dog can help me hunt.

I tell my dog, “Sit down. Wait. Don’t move.”
