CHAPTER 8 – ISLAND
The weather is still very bad. But the waves are not so big. I see the ship. The ship is far from the land.
I look around. I see that I have nothing. I am wet. I have no other clothes. I have nothing to eat or drink. I have no gun. Dangerous animals can eat me. I have only a small knife which I find in my pocket. This situation is really bad. How can I survive with only a small knife?
I need to drink some fresh water. I find a small river. I drink the water.
The night comes. I am scared of dangerous animals. I can’t sleep on the ground. So, I spend the night in a big tree.
When I wake up the next morning, the sea is calm. I still see the ship.
I swim to the ship. I don’t see a way inside the big ship. I swim around the ship twice. Then I see a rope on one side of the ship. I use the rope.
Now, I am on the ship. The ship is empty. I try to find some food. I am lucky. Some food on the ship is dry. I also find a bottle of rum. I take the bottle with me.
Then I hear something. Somebody is on the ship. Who is it? Somebody from my friends? It is not possible. My friends are all dead. I am scared.
I go to the place where I hear the noises. Then I see who it is. It is a dog. It is a dog of our captain. Now, I have a friend. I am not alone.
I must take the food, rum and the dog to the beach. But I don’t have a small boat on the ship. I must make a raft. I find some wood. I make a raft from the wood. I also need some clothes. I look for the clothes.
When I look for the clothes, I find a nice carpet. I also find four guns and a box with gunpowder. I put everything on my raft. The sea is calm. The wind goes to the land. This is all good.
Soon, I am on the beach. I look for a place where I can stay.
I see a hill. From the hill, I can see where I am.
I take a gun. I walk to the hill. I go to the top. I see sea around the whole place. I am on an island.
I see two small islands near. One is to the north. One is to the west. I also see a big land to the south. The land is about 100 kilometres far. I see nothing to the east. I see only the ocean. I don’t see people on the island. I see only wild animals.
