“Captain, Captain, what will I do?” I asked.
“Ya ain’t doin’ nu’n it’s too dangerous up there, you’re going to the lower deck with Ma and the baby.” He said.
I ran down the rickety stairs. Usually I take my time going down the stairs looking at the prize pictures on the wall but now I couldn’t. When I got down the stairs I couldn’t believe my eyes, water was everywhere!
“Aaaah!” I screamed. Ma and the baby were gone! I ran back up the stairs and yelled “The lower deck is gone and so is Ma and the baby!” But when I opened my eyes expecting to see a sad Captain but nobody was there.
I apparently passed out because when I opened my eyes I wasn’t on a broken boat in a screaming ocean anymore, I was stranded on a tropical island. There was jungle as far as the eye could see. “Where am I?” I whispered to myself. “MA!” I yelled into the forest “nuts, no answer.” I growled. “MA!” I called again then I got an answer.
“What ya yelling ‘bout? No people will hear ya, you know that right?”
“Me? Me well I am Bill memba?” Then out of the forest came the ugliest looking man I have ever seen and that is actually saying something since I am a pirate.
“Wow, that is a nice Boat you got there” the nutty man said. I turned around and half of the boat was still there. “I’ll let you live with me if you let me put your fancy stuff in my house if you like to.” He said. “Well….ok.” I said gleefully because now I have family again but just thinking about that made me want to cry but I was able to hold it in.
Bill showed me where he lives and the greatest places to hunt get fruit, water, and firewood for those chilly nights in the winter. I turned out to be a great mountain man and a great hunter.
One day I fixed the ship and sailed away to foreign countries to get married and get a job so when I went to America I met a beautiful woman named Anne and I grew up to be a great father.
