CHAPTER 13 – DREAM
One of my dreams is really crazy. I am in a pub. The pub is on my island. I want to drink some rum. But the waitress is very lazy. She sits at the bar. She does nothing. I don’t like lazy people. I am angry but I wait.
Then my wife comes to the pub. She gives me paper with some text. It is a message from her father. He writes that I have to go home. He writes that I have to work on the plantations. But I don’t want to go home.
I go to the kitchen in the pub. My mother is in the kitchen. She prepares some steaks. She also cooks soup. I taste the soup. The soup tastes fantastic.
Then two Englishmen come to the pub. They want to sell gunpowder. One man looks like a gentleman. But the second man is horrible.
I tell the horrible man, “I am sorry. I don’t need your gunpowder. I have a lot of gunpowder in my camp.”
The horrible man says, “You have to buy our gunpowder. We travel from London. We want to do the business.”
I say, “Thank you. I don’t want your gunpowder.”
The horrible man is really angry. Our conversation is not good. He says some horrible things about me. I say some horrible things about him.
The conversation gets to a point when he wants to kill me. He takes his gun. I start to run away. He shoots at me. Then I wake up.
One week later, I feel better. But I still need to relax. I need to sleep a lot.
In August, I am OK again. But I still feel a little weak. I need to do some physical activity. The next ten days, I walk around the island. I feel better after these trips.
When I feel strong again, I decide to explore the whole island. I find a new interesting part of the island. It is a valley. It is a valley with a lake. The valley is in the central part of the island.
I find melons here. The melons look like big balls. They are very sweet. I also find apples, oranges and lemons in this valley. I want to take some fruit home. But I need a big bag. I don’t have a big bag with me.
I collect some fruit. I put the fruit in one place. I return to my cave. I bring a big bag for the fruit.
I like the fruit valley very much. The nature is beautiful here. I think, “Maybe, I can move here. But the beach is far from this place. I have to be close to the beach. I need to see a ship which can save me.”
