CHAPTER 20 – CAVE

I’m hiding my activity on the island. I’m very careful. I try not to be loud.

I’m worried when I make a fire. But I need fire because I need to cook. So when a make a fire, I try to make only little smoke. Smoke can go very high. People can see smoke from a big distance.

One day, I discover a small cave in the forest. The cave is near the beach.

I go inside. When my eyes are OK with the dark, I see two eyes. The eyes are looking at me. I jump outside. I’m scared to death.

I wait but nothing happens. I go slowly to the beginning of the cave and I listen. I hear something. It hear some animal. I think that the animal is injured.

I take my gun and I go in the cave slowly. When my eyes can see again, I see an old goat. The goat is dying in the cave.

I return to the cave the next day. I see that the goat is dead. I look around the place. I see that the place is very safe. It’s a good place near the beach where I can hide. So I bring some guns and some gunpowder there.

It’s twenty-three years after my first moment on this island. I live comfortably now. I have many animals around me. Poll is repeating my name and some other words very nicely. I have two other parrots. I teach them how to say my name. I have more than thirty goats.

One day, I’m walking to my fields in the morning when I see fire on the beach.

I quickly return to my house. I prepare all my guns. I take my telescope. I go close to the beach. I hide behind a tree. I watch what is happening on the beach.

I see nine naked people. They have two canoes. And they are leaving.

When they leave, I go to the beach. The beach is full of blood and bones again. I’m angry again. I decide to kill them if I see them again. But they don’t return for a long time.

One day in the evening after a big storm, something strange happens. I hear the sound of a gun at sea. I go to the beach. I see a light. The light is coming from the sea. But it’s very far.

Then, I hear the gun again. I know that some ship is near my island. The ship is in danger. The ship is asking for help. But it’s very dark. I don’t see the whole ship.

I take a lot of dry wood. I make a big fire on the beach. The men on the ship probably see the fire because they shoot again.

I think, “I can speak to somebody tonight. This is great.”

I keep the fire until midnight. But nobody comes to my beach. It’s very strange. I don’t understand it.

I think, “Where are the men from the ship?”
