“Ummm, I think you’re being followed…….”

    One day, on the sea, just off the coast of Cuba, a man was busy catching some glowing seaweed. This man’s name was Jake. All the while, Jake was catching his seaweed, a fearousous typhoon was forming.

    Suddenly the typhoon hit the Carribean with Jake in the middle of it! After one week of howling winds, torrenchall rain and mind blowing waves, you think Jake would of given up. Well no! Jake battled the winds, the rain and the waves.

    Finally, after typhoon ceased, Jake set to work on fixing his boat. Or what was left of it. After three tireing hours, Jake finally managed to turn the remanes of his boat into a raft.

    He set sail for Cuba. He was adrift for many days. And then, on the end of his travels he realised he was being followed. It was a monstras Great White Shark! It was cruising smoothly along behind him. Jake was so surprised he nearly fell off his craft in shock.

    When Jake got home he vowed to never go looking for seaweed or animals again.

  2. I’ve been drifting for days since the ship capsized. Looking ahead, I could see land…thank you God. Suddenly, I had this feeling that there was something behind me…I turned and there it was!!! HELP…the fin of a mighty shark just one metre away from my raft!! Probably like me absolutely starving for food!
    ‘Don’t Panic’ I told myself. But how could I not? Now he was circling me. All thoughts running through my head. I had once read to go for the sharks eyes if I was attacked. I turned again to see how far the land was away, I was drifting slowly towards it maybe I could swim faster than the shark. I would dive when he was round the back and swim for my life! I looked down and around and could not see the shark. I waited just a second for the raft to be lifted from underneath me, but then out of the corner of my eye I saw the shark swimming away towards some dolphins in the distance and he had obviously thought them more tasty than me. Before I could think any more I dived into the water and swam stronger and faster than I had ever swam before towards the land.

    Once upon a time, on a deserted, island in the middle of the deep blue ocean lived a man called Sam. Sam had lived on the island for twenty years because twenty years ago he was on a ship on the way to New York, sadly the ship hit an ice berg and sank. His parents died but he survived, he swam to the nearest island and lived there.

    One scorching hot morning, Sam woke up with a start and went searching to find some juicy coconuts (for breakfast) but sadly all of them weren’t ripe enough. Then he decided to go fishing. Sam found fifteen long, clumsy logs just lying on the ground. Then he found two long, old ropes buried in deep sand. He decided to wrap the two ropes around the logs to make a raft. When the raft was finished, Sam needed to make an oar, so he got two skinny logs with no holes in them and tied them together with a leaf as thick as leather. After that, Sam found a log as sharp as a spear to use to catch fish. Finally Sam was ready to go fishing.

    Sam dragged the raft cautiously into the ocean; he then clambered onto the raft and started rowing to the depth of the ocean. When he got to the depth of the ocean, Sam could hear a splash noise coming from the surface of the water; every time he glanced back a shiny-black tale was flapping out of the water. Behind Sam, a tall, shark like fin was sticking out. Suddenly, a frightening, monstrous shark head popped out of the water and looked directly at Sam. When Sam saw the shark he gladly said hello to it. It was Sam’s pet shark: Sid. Sam knows that sharks are dangerous but Sam saved Sid because five years ago, Sid got stuck in a net and Sam helped him out. Sid was following Sam just to make sure that he was safe.

    A massive wave came surging towards Sam. It then swept him away. Sid got so worried.
    But where should Sid look to find Sam?

    Spain. A land of sunshine and seas, a land of flies and ice-creams. Glorious. Whether you are paddling in a crystal sea or climbing over jagged rocks and cliffs you can always have a fantastic time. Reading this I instantly wanted to go to the”so-said” heavenly place.After what seemed like an age of begging and pleading, my family(two brothers and my mum and dad ) decided to forget about the extremely expensive costs and fly to Spain.We were seated in a fine but fully overcrowded aeroplane, the steward turned the radiator on and I suddenly started to feel a little drowsy…
    The sand on the orange speckled beach glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight,the water sparkled like sequins in a picture.Paradise was in my view. The water seemed so fresh and clean I wanted to jump in straight away. I glimpsed my old snorkel in dad’s rucksack, I immediately snatched them and raced towards the sea. The sand crunched under my eager feet as I rushed in to the water.
    Under the water secrets, hidden away for so long began to reveal themselves. I was amazed at what creatures were darting in and out of the coral, a stripy one, a blue fish but suddenly everything became silent, the fish disappeared, just a giant shadow loomed over the reefs.It took a while for me to realise what it was, a shark!
    It was heading for a familiar looking raft,dad’s raft! I could see its beady sharp eyes and its saliva oozing out of its mouth. I had to act quickly. I heaved my body and shouted with all my might,”Dad,you’re being followed!” Dad jerked back
    ,”Followed?” Questioned Dad peering about, then he noticed it. It made his heart fill with terror but luckily the shark hadn’t been going for Dad, it was going for an uncautious fish that happened to be swimming by unaware of what was going on.
    I was awoken by the heat of the Spanish sun. I was glad it was all a dream!

    It was a warm, sunny day in San Diego, and because it was very hot many people were heading for the beach. In San Diego there was a very good pioneer named Mac. Mac was the best at his trade and would spend hours on end pioneering. So, whenever Mac went to the hectic beach he would make a raft and go paddling. He did excatly that that day.

    Once Mac finally finished his wonderful masterpiece he took it out for a quick test run. All was going well until a women screamed, “Ummm, I think you’re being followed by a shark!” Everyone panicked and screamed except for Mac who remained imperturbable during the whole process. He just casually turned around and saw that it was just a man wearing a shark fin float. Mac eventually managed to persuade everyone that everyhting was fine and because of this incident, shark fin floats are now banned at that beach.

    Today I always thought how lucky me and my mum were …….. well my dad I never knew.

    We were sailing to India in a boat. We loaded everything on board and took off. 10 or so minutes later we hit something , when this happened I was just lucky I nearly got squished by that stupid cupboard… I didn’t like it the very first time I saw it !!! Then I realised that we landed. I rushed out of my bedroom saying ‘ we landed mum and dad’. dad came out of his bedroom saying we can’t land in about 1 2 3 4 … 1 week. Now me and dad are kind of mates so I can be rough on him I cant with mum. Im a girl well not a girl a tom cat just if you wanted to know. ‘maybe we went in a super cool boat who could go at the speed of LIGHTNING ‘ I said. Dad said it was a ship wreck the sailor got drunk and sired us into the the rocks. mum and dad panicked i think they should thanked me besides i didn’t know if we were sailing or flying!!! we grabbed a raft and jumped into the sea we lived on that smelly dirty raft for three days until the raft broke in two leaving me and mum on one side and dad on the other. we saw thin poke out of the water ‘ is that shark mummy’ I said ,mum didn’t answer i knew what se was thinking i had it to ‘ DADDY WILL WE EVER SEE YOU AGAIN !!!!!!’ I sobbed in mums arms

    The following
    One day, an Australian man was out on the beach. The man was called Paul, and he had long black spikey hair.

    Paul was surfing and suddenly the waves started getting into rapids! Paul swam back and dodged the waves. Paul carried on surfing and after a while his board started shaking. He looked around, left and right and there were no waves coming so he checked behind and there was a shark! Paul leapt off his board and tried to swim to safety, but the shark was in close pursuit. Paul was giving it his all, but it wasn’t enough. The shark bit his leg and then swallowed him whole.

    Well all I can say is its jaws all over again!

    One bright sunny day, an Australian man was out on the beach. The man was called Paul, and he was a surfer. Paul wasn’t any average surfer though, He was a world champion!
    Paul was practising surfing in the sea and suddenly waves started rolling and crashing down on him and the sea turned ice cold. The sea suddenly felt a shake on his board and looked franticly behind him and there in the presents of him was a savage shark with razor sharp teeth! Paul tried to dive and swim away but the shark bit his leg. Paul screamed in agony but no one could hear him, because he was too far away. But at that moment in time the shark ripped off Paul’s leg and he let out another scream of agony, but still no one could hear him. By now the injuries he had were so bad the water was no longer blue but ruby red. Paul managed to swim away and make it but without one leg.
    However Paul’s surf board was never to be seen again. Paul is now on the mend and got an award for his braveness.

    The diary of a treacherous journey
    My name is John Jenkins and I am a jewellery and precious diamonds exporter. This is a diary about a petrifying journey that I took from Chicago to the UK.
    Day 1
    It was a bright and sunny morning and I was getting my boat, the Atlantis, ready to set sail. “Ah that’s better”, I yawned after planting the last chest onto the ship, I climbed aboard. Later we set sail, the weather forecast was to be beautiful, only a few showers, perfect sailing weather.
    Day 2
    Still lovely weather! I was snuggling deep into my cosy cabin bed, dreaming of crispy bacon for breakfast, when one of the crew members spied tornado Nimbus on the horizon. It was approaching quickly, I hoped to miss it.
    Later on I was fixing a hole in the deck of the boat when the wind started getting stronger – I stared ahead and saw that we were being enclosed by strong winds and dark thundery clouds.
    “Oh no!’ I screamed as the ship got sucked into the eye of the tornado. All around me I heard my mates screaming and wailing and plunging off the sides of the ship. Atlantis started to tear apart! “Arggggggh!” I hollered as all my precious cargo poured out of the side of the ship, I scampered to the remaining escape raft and sailed out of the horrid storm.
    Day 3
    I have been sailing now for an endless time and it has been a tragic journey and I’m starving. “Wait a second” I thought to myself, I heard a swift swish in the water, I turned around to see a treacherous tiger shark with it’s rotten jaws gaping wide and snapping down on my raft countless times. I paddled as fast as a dolphin but the shark wouldn’t give up. Suddenly I spotted land, I paddled breathlessly the shark still on my tail. Finally I’d made it! I climbed onto the safe and secure land “At last I’m safe” I panted.

  11. I was out sailing on my raft for 4 days and I had still not found land, until the fog cleared I saw ahead, land finally land was almost here. I only had a bit of this boring adventure to go until……

    I felt my raft tilting to one corner and when I turned my head I saw a shark just behind me the shark’s mouth was open wide to eat me or my raft. My body shivered and my heart was beating as fast as it could. When I heard a voice ‘ Hurry we must go’ after I jumped onto the boat both of us rowed the boat with paddles, the shark kept on circling round the boat with a lot of hard work and teamwork we reached land safely. I asked the grateful man his name. He replied saying ’My name is Suzuki, you come I will get fire and place for you and me to rest,’ I understood by this that he lived in this place, and didn’t know how to speak English. I went along with him and helped him pick up sticks for the fire and stay with him. We lit the fire and in the cave where I supposed he lived.

    The next morning he said to me ‘ I tell you my story and you tell me you story.’ He started to tell me that he was in the army and that he got left behind when fighting the red Indians ,who lived here before,. I asked Suzuki if he ever met his family after he got left behind. He said this ‘ I never met family again my family died in war when Japan got shot by America. I told him a little bit of how I was sailing in the sea. I told him that I lived in England and that Spain invaded us and my mum and dad were led to safety but I was left at home and one day later I set out on the raft for four days until I got rescued by him.

    Gory death
    The night before christmas, when the winds abused the waves and the waves bombed [smashed against the shore] the land, a man called mike was stranded on an island. He was wearing a red, blue, yellow and green striped long jumper knitted from the finest cotton from the sheep farm. His shoes are brown and made of lether. He thought’ since it is so windy I will build a sail boat’
    5hours later….
    ‘Ah finally done’ he selfishly said, ‘now to put it to the test’ he pushed it into the water but then…. A shark attacked him a wack then a bite then a death.

    As they proudly left Oman…
    ALL HELL LET LOOSE!!!
    The giant typhoon threw all it’s weight at them,tossing,turning and throwing them around,there Sundance had backfired,Tom was left with no choice but to shout,MAYDAY!!! down there radio,but there radio was jammed…
    Then the cold ocean water touched there feet,THEY WERE SINKING…
    Tom wept on his tiny life raft,there ship had gone down in 45 seconds,he was the only surviving man…
    Then only five minutes after the sinking Tom saw a shark,as he tried to fend it off,a cruise ship appeared out of the blue…
    Tom let a flare off, mean while the shark began nibbling into the life raft.
    Then a helping hand appeared…

    “I am enjoying this boat ride to Ireland. Look at that view.”
    Stuart the sailor was sailing, but he was being followed. Someone behind shouted, “Look out, there’s a shark following you!” 
    Stuart screamed for about twenty minutes.  Meanwhile, some people had arrived at the beach, and started to make sand castles with their bucket and spade. 
    Soon afterwards, the shark landed on the seashore, and slowly died. However, Stuart was pleased, because the shark had been trying to eat him. Stuart said to himself “I can carry on with my journey to Ireland.”

    The Flight

    My adventure starts when I left my comfortable house to go to my boring job. There was a phone next to my table and the phone had numbers read out by a robot, which I needed to press all day. (I’m already drifting off!)
    I am a very tall person, ( Oh im blushing!) dark haired and very skinny indeed. I have scuffed sideburns itching the side of my face, unfortunatley I am very lazy considering my job. I always wear my blue top and brown tie to work, my only pair of decent clothes. I wore tight, skinny jeans which were too small for me, I am very lazy! I wore geeky socks with sandles which was an old man style, but they are the only pair ive got!

    Occasionally, I would wish to get assigned for a trip to Australia to collect my job tax and the company’s mobile fees but that never happened to me until one day…..
    “Bob! Oh my good’ll chap!” howled my Australian boss. (who was ridiculously over tanned!)
    “I need to ask you a favor!” he started to walk closer, and started to talk into a whisper “Can you fly to australia my home land,”( he always used to boast about australia.)
    ” To get the money fee taxes and you know maybe get something out of it aswell…” I was persuaded, and I had to do it, I had no alternative!

    The next week later after this happened I was ready for the airport! Starting an adventure was fun! My boss told me there would be time to look around his ‘home land’ but not long.
    On the aeroplane there I was horror-strucked to see a school of great white sharks, and I can convince you that these sharks were monsterous, humongous, tretorious, mammoth-sized human-eating machines! Their razor-sharp fangs were sharper than a blades, their huge, blood-red eyes were more terrifying than Freddie Kreuger trying to stab you in the back! Their tails, to wipe you back and forth threw the water like wind shield wipers and there long, paper-thin fins to wipe your blood off their mouths.
    I gulped, as if i had just swallowed a chicken bone,when I was iterrupted by the crackling sound threw the speaker and I could just about hear the sound of a pilot..,”ThERE maYBE SOMe turbUlence ON this AiRLine. PleaSE kEEp SEAted.”
    I held onto my seat for my life and I was very jittery and very nervous this was only the third time i had flown in my whole life! Later I could hear the ladyies from apart of the airline crew saying that the plane was going to have to make an unexpected landing! (well its not really unexpecting landing if you know its going to happen is it!) I ran over to the loo where I knew I would be safe. The plane seemed out of control and was falling at the speed of more than 20000 miles per hour! Soon CRASH! BANG! T he plane had fallen to pieces! I was not the only one alive though the pilot and seven other passengers were ok but with my luck I got lost and somehow I stupidly ended up in the middle of the ocean! All I could see were baboons and seaweed which gave me an genuis idea! i got around eight pieces of baboon and made a raft all tied together with seaweed! i had another piece of baboon with me to push the boat until I had a horrible feeling that i was being followed….

    I don’t remember much I think it went something like this.

    What I remember was that I was on holiday, on a cruise, to the heart of the Caribbean to go to my friends wedding. The cruise had many activities such as water parks and restaurant’s so I always had something interesting leaning on my back.

    On the night of the second day, I couldn’t sleep, I had an eerie feeling that something was going to happen. When I thought it over to myself it probably was because I had just watched ‘Titanic’. When suddenly I heard a massive crash! I put some clothes on, and as quick as a flash I was sprinting through the corridors desperately trying to reach the deck. As sudden as lightning the cruise began to rock side to side. When I eventually got to the deck. I realised that no one was there. When suddenly a huge wave swept me off the deck.

    I must of been unconscious floating through the night because I remember waking up in the blinding sunshine with a plank of wood next to me suddenly I realised that a little fin was poking up through the water. It began to come closer so I thought it was a dolphin and stroked it’s fin, suddenly it jumped up at me and revealed that it was a shark. I tried to paddle away, but soon it ate the planks and took a big leap at me.

    It all went black.

    When I woke up I was on the shores of Cuba with my in front of me.
    ” Did you sleep on the beach then?” laughed my friend John.

    What happened will never be known…

  17. It was the first day of my journey to my home country. I haven’t been there for a long time so I wanted to see my parents and brothers and sisters since three long years. We were going to Mauritius. It is a lovely tropical island and it may seem small but it a beautiful place. When me and my family were going on the boat we had to stay on it for three hours.

    When we set off it was a perfect, nice,sunny weather and it was roughly four am in the morning. We all went to sleep for two and a half hours and suddenly the captain announced that we would crash into a big rock. Everyone screamed and shouted for immediate help. Many people died. I managed to find a piece of surface to balance on on the water. I thought I was safe but then I knew there was something behind me so I turned around. Suddenly I saw a huge grey shark with razor sharp teeth. I tried to paddle as fast as I could but the shark was still behind me.

    I almost reached a piece of land. As soon as I got there I managed to escape from the shark because it was too shallow. I managed to survive but unfortunately my family didn’t. All I needed to do was find Mauritius.

    “AAH!” screamed John
    “STUPID BOAT!” shouted John
    John was stranded on an island. Luckily he had all the resources he needed. He chopped down a tree and made a shelter, he went to go get some apples.

    He made a campfire and a little farm. All he needed to survive. He made a raft a couple days later. He stoked up on food and sailed away

    When he sailed away he saw some land. A continent! He paddled as fast as he could, but then a shark came he paddled slowly then the sharked pounced on him. Taking him into the water and eating John. John saw the sea go red and his vision went black.

    Then he woke up on a cruise! He remembered everything. It was all a dream. He was safe, or was he?

    One beautiful, calm summers’ morning, my family and I went on a cruise ship to the amazing country of Spain. As we sailed through the light-blue sea, only ripples were to be seen – no waves at all. It was a delightful, charming day and the blinding sun shone through the colossal windows. Intriguing didn’t begin to describe the lovely view of all the dolphins swimming high-spiritedly through the serene sea. The cotton-wool balls in the sky gave the satisfying finishing touch to the flabbagasting scene.

    Suddenly, when we were all sleeping, the ship smashed into an iceberg and an alarm woke me up and goosepumps appeared on my skin. My parents and brother were still fast asleep and had not realised the major incident. I tried to wake them up but it was no use. I felt a pair of hands on my shoulders and it was a man who told me to immediately rush to a raft. He told me he would help my parents and brother but when I evacuated and was on a raft, my family sank with the ship. “Mum! Dad! Brother!” I screamed as the ship sunk to the very bottom of the sea.

    I felt utterly melancholy, grief-stricken and heavy hearted. My family was gone. As I went on my raft I blank-mindedly stared at the sky, thinking of them. Just then I heard a splash. I quickly turned and saw an immense grey fin approaching me…

    In oxford I was in the local mall, looking for clothes for holiday, when i spotted some super-cute shorts (for boys) , Archie would have loved those…….

    It was a gorgeous day in Spain , my boyfriend Archie was there too also with my parents .All four of us strolled down to the beach . Sunbathing and having drinks and snacks as the hours flew by .At two o’clock in the afternoon , Archie decided to go for a swim with me.My parents headed back to our glorious beach hut , while Archie was searching for a raft .Finally he found an old raft made of wood , taking towels and ourselves with it.for ten minutes we sailed further and further out into the ocean when Archie said it was time for a swim .After five minutes , I said to get back onto the raft , dry off and sail back .As i turned round for one second, I heard a high pitched shriek .There was red all round Archie and I , and something had come to join us , a great white shark !
    “Shark ! ” he screamed.
    I acted soon enough , if i had taken Archie a second later he would have been a goner . I swam at least 40 metres to the shore and dialled 999 .
    The nurse then told me , an hour later in the local hospital, that Trchie had died from his horrific wounds . I wanted to kill myself for him. I wanted to scream. I felt so so melancholy that I sat down and cried . What could i do know ? Go on a shark-killing rampage ? No, i couldn’t , for Archie’s sake .I would not go out with ANYONE else ……

    I then sank down the shop window and cried , that shark attack .I just remembered, today was Archie’s birthday .
    “Lauren?” i heard my mother say .”Up you get .”
    I managed a smile and then walked down to the exit where a balloon shop was. i then bought a green balloon (green was Archie’s favourite colour)that said “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARCHIE”. then i walked out the exit door , my mother’s arms wrapped around me , as I let go of the balloon and whispered,

    ” Happy Birthday , Archie “……………

    I was peaceful. The light shone brighter than the brightest star in the sky. The silhouetted sky cast dull shadows on the crystal-clear water. My wooden raft was my only companion and all around was sea and no sight of land. The water was calm as we sailed on, the only problem was…. no one. Deserted. Stranded. And most of all lonely and marooned. Even though this was a problem, nothing could go wrong. Or could it?…
    As midday shot round faster than a speeding bullet, I saw something dark-grey in the crystal clear water. It was long and the apex at the top was pointing directly my way. ”Must be a dolphin!” I pondered effortlessly. My eyes stared directly at him as I knew it couldn’t be a dolphin. No. It was a shark…
    It inched closer and I moved steadily towards the far end of the raft. 10 meters. 5 meters. 2.5 meters. And then it did what I least wanted it to do. It jumped. My eyes paralysed with fear I plunged into the icy-cold water watching the brutal beast attack my raft. Unexpectedly, the beast jumped in the air and darted straight towards me. A second later all I could see was grey. I knew what sealed my fate.

    Dear Diary
    I have to tell you about this horrific adventure I had. I don’t remember very well what happened because most of the time I was hiding behind a table cloth!

    Me, my mum and dad were all together on a cruise around Africa. I was drinking the most delicious chocolate milkshake when the milkshake started to shake. My little cousin started screaming as we both darted to the deck to see what all the atrocious moving was. My parents stood next to us and we saw the most horrendus, enormous beast in the whole mighty world. I can’t describe the beast because it is just so terrible you will have nightmares!

    The sailor was a scardey-cat as he jumped of the large boat. Our family jumped into action. wha wha wha went my dad trying to use his taekwando skills. Me and my frightened cousin hid behind the table cloth. That’s when I had no idea what happened I just waited until there was no noise at all, I stepped out from behind the cloth, I started crying, my sympathetic cousin came over and said he would look after me. He is four so I laughed at that statement. I lowered the life boat and we both sailed quietly back home.

    That is the story of my crazy adventure. I live with my aunt now, she tells me scary stories which make me have nightmares so I hardly sleep now and everyone makes fun of me because I don’t do well in school.

    Moral: Big things always start from small things. ( For example a milkshake.)

    Hello! I am J.J. Jackson and this is my blog. Today I am going to tell you all about an adventure I have recently encountered.

    It was a fine summers day in the middle of August and I was on board the S.S Marine. The sun reflected on the still water and there was not a cloud in sight. It was all going smoothly until… we hit it. A two hundred ton rock- the size of a house. Amazingly I managed to leap off into the crystal clear waters and swim for my life. As I looked back I watched devastated as I saw the beautiful ship sink down deeper and deeper into the ocean.
    I paddled tirelessly for miles leaving my mates behind me. After what seemed like hours I reached dry land. I immediately collapsed,exhausted on the soft white sand and fell asleep for an hour or two.
    When I woke up I looked around me and saw an adventure packed wilderness in front of me. I stumbled wearily into this jungle and started to break down the hard, scratchy bamboo with my sore, bare hands. I then tied it together with long luscious vines. I had decided to build a raft and try and get back to civilisation.
    Eventually,once I had finally completed it,I heaved it all the way through the tall majestic trees,which felt like a never ending obstacle course.
    With one final bolt of energy I pushed it into the tropical salty water. I clambered aboard and started to paddle once again.
    After many monotonous hours I heard a strange, eerie, splashing, sound coming from directly behind me. I peered over my shoulder cautiously and gasped!

  25. I think I’m being followed

    It started on a hot cloudy day, resting on my very own boat with my friend Jo. We were scattering around the ocean looking for a great place to fish. We suddenly started to feel hot so we decided to go for a swim, the water was crystal clear. We were in there for a while but then we saw a gigantic splash, we thought it was a dolphin. BANG! It started to swim as fast as lightning after us so we hurried out of the sea as quick as a cheetah, then came the chase. The sea was rough, the winds were high, and nothing could stop this wretched bull shark chasing us for ages. So then Jo and I turned the boat around and went back towards land but suddenly the engine stopped, they both started to panic. Who will survive?

    Highly educated and fascinated by storms was Dave. He was storm watching on a pier in Gran canaria. It was going to be the worst storm ever recorded! Dave did not care, he wanted to see what the storm was to bring and how different it was to previous crashes and clapping of lightning. Unfortunately, the storm arrived later than expected and Dave was asleep on the pier. The torrential rain and gargantua wave hit the pier so hard that the end of the rickety rackety pier snapped off like a branch from a tree. Poor Dave was adrift at sea all alone!
    Dave woke up in the middle of the calm crystal clear sea he could just see some land in the distance. So Dave took a piece of wood out of the raft and used it as an ore to make him go faster but suddenly a grey/white thin popped up in front of him but as I was a couple of miles away from an islands that I think is Tenerife I thought in my head it could be one of those floaty things that help to swim. So I carried on but the fin did not move at all.
    Then I put my head under water to see what was there and this is what I saw SHARK! I looked at it and it gave me a cheesy grin with his shiny white teeth that were sharp as a daggers point ! Dave got back up and paddled as fast as he could to shore but he could not because disembark the raft because the shark kept on circling him. Dave decided to trick the beast by throwing his ore into the sea as a ploy for save to swim safely to the golden sandy beach.
    Having been woken up by the ratty baby, he realised it was all a dream and carried on enjoying his family holiday.

    The End!!

    One day we were sailing of the coast of Australia when a menacing storm broke out in the middle of the night all the wood from the boat disappeared into the sea i gathered wood as i could then found some rope and tied it together. Also i found a big bit of rectangular wood i used that as a paddle i finally found some land and SOME TRIBES WERE LIVING THERE !A million thoughts were going through my mind will they attack me will they eat me but luckily they liked me they taught me how to fish and not to be scared around sharks.

    Bite!

    “Paddle!” that’s the first thing that popped into my mind. I went to a shop that sells axes and bought one. I bought the axe for chopping down some bamboo. (If you’re wondering what the bamboo was for it was for making a paddle-boat.) When I got back to Mum I got some rope from my pocket and tied some bamboo together. “Ta-da!” I shouted ( I had made a paddle-boat out of bamboo!)

    I said, “Bye Mum.” and then I jumped on my boat in the sea, grabbed my oars and paddled away. I paddled for about 20 minutes and then had a rest. Luckily there were no waves so I was safe. But not for long.

    “UMMM, I THINK YOU’RE BEING FOLLOWED!” the life-guard shouted.
    Just at that moment a huge Great White Shark leaped out of the sea, hit the boat and bit my arm!

    Then the next thing I could remember was me laying on my sunbed with a great big bite on my arm all stitched up. I found my boat which was repaired and I was out again paddling away. Just as I felt more safe it started again. I got bitten…..again!

    THE FOLLOWER

    This is the story of a man on a raft that was followed by a mysterious creature lurking in the depths of the ocean…

    A fisherman, Bob, is as nasty as can be. He loved putting cyanide to blow up fishes out of the turquoise blue water.

    On his raft, Bob was about to fling his cyanide barrel into the ocean when suddenly a wave came crashing down and he was carried to a mysterious island. Bob was incredibly frustrated that he started cursing and swearing at the sea. He lived on nothing else but fish and coconut milk for 15 whole years!

    On new years day, Bob found 16 logs and two ropes lying about. I could use this to make a raft, Bob thought cunningly. With that he started to build a raft. It was time-consuming work but he managed it in the end. Bob had to pack all his food and some clothes to last him at least a year. Finally Bob finished all of these tasks and headed out into the tropical salty water ahead.

    It had been 365 whole days until he first saw the sight of glorious land! Just then a grey fin came swimming up as fast as a cheetah. Suddenly, the mysterious creature turned out to be a shark! The treacherous tiger shark leapt out and took a large bite out of Bob. The last thing that Bob saw was red all over him. Then his vision turned black…

    He woke up with a start on his raft. It was all a dream. He was safe, until a familiar grey fin started swimming at the speed of light towards him…

  30. “Ummm, I think where’re being followed…….”
    Last week, my friend Christian and I had the biggest adventure ever at the sea-side!
    It was a sunny, warm day, so we decided to go rafting at the sea-side, it was only us and Jack, our friend’s mother(for all we knew). After about half an hour of going round to the rocks and back to the beach, I had this nagging feeling that something was following us. So I started to look back every now and then, but every time I started to turn around, there was a splash and the water was calm, Christian had also noticed it and we were starting to edge towards the shallows. The strange thing was, though that there seemed to be a dark thing behind the raft, we called it the raft’s shadow, just to stop us getting scared any more. I suddenly turned round so quickly that the ‘thing’ didn’t have time to submerge(Christian did this with me ) and we saw a shark (fin). At that moment we were the most petrified human-beings on Earth! We paddled like mad, only to find out, when we got to shore, that it was Jack with his realistic shark-suit, so that’s where he was then! The ingenious suit had an air tank and the snorkel was cleverly fitted into the top fin!

    One glorious day a boy called Tim went to the seaside. He took a spectacular boat and a shiny, marvellous life jacket. He also took a pair of crimson goggles. He went on his boat and rowed into the deep turquoise sea. Suddenly he heard a SPLASH! He was flummoxed. All of a sudden Tim saw a grey audacious fin! It was immovably. This was an expedition!…

  32. IFE says:

    It all began on 7th October 2000, then I lived in Indian with my parents and my sister. One outrageous day, a mediocre and horrendous earthquake erupted so we had to recede into the sea on a wooden mat. My parents pushed me farther into the sea and that was the last I saw of them.
    My name is Molly Malone, although I do not really know what my real name is. I am sixteen years old and still on the wooden carpet in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. As I sat on the mat lonely and unkempt, a massive wave suddenly gushed towards me. The sea was trembling like a leaf. ‘Not another earthquake’ I thought ‘. As I turned around I felt a fin as sharp as a razor. I tried paddling away but it was no use. ‘Help’ I shrieked, in an instance a helicopter was hovering above me. Meanwhile, the mysterious creature was coming closer as its razor sharp teeth tried to grab me! The helicopter seems like so far away. I tried frightening the creature off as it came closer. In an instance the helicopter arrived and I hurried in before the creature could get to me. I was relieved! Despite nearly being eaten alive, I was as happy as lark!

    The legend of the inseparable friends
    Jade and Emerald have been friends since nursery and still are. They dream of living in a beautiful house together, going to the same job and doing literally everything together!Untill now… They are in year 9 and in the same school, the same class even!As they walk home from school, Jade notices a poster about drama-club and remembers how she longed to be an actress when she was younger and reads on, however Emerald gets impatient and asks her to hurry up, so in order to ‘drag’ Jade away, she writes both of their names on the drama-club list AND the fun-run club. “Em, you KNOW I can’t run, please wipe both our names off BOTH lists, I was just reading!”begs Jade, but Em insists, ” Jay, it’s a FUN- run, I know how much you just LOVE acting and you know how much I LOVE running, so to make it fair, I chose fun-run for myself and drama for you.So, there’s drama-club on Mondays and fun-run on Wednesdays!-Awesome!”explains Em with glee. ” Oh, please!” begs Jay “No, no,no,no,no-this is meant to be fun, be young Jay!” says Em and pretends to smack Jay, then swings her bag round, but Jay doesn’t move out the way, which means her hip gets hurt.Em apologises and tries to rub Jay’s hip, but Jay smacks it out of the way, Em is so startled that she just crosses the road and screams ‘I don’t care’ again and again.At that moment, it just so seems that CRASH!!A car has hit Jay’s beloved friend! Jay,even though she is cross with Em, she turns round to look and screams!Em falls limply to the ground! You may be asking ‘How could Jay still care about her?’, but Em and Jay aren’t JUST friends, well yes they may quarrel once in a while, but they care about each other dearly!They were such CLOSE friends since nursery and they vowed that they no matter what happened, they would still be friends all the way through their lives. They also made sure that they were there for each other, but now:”OH, IT’S ALL MY FAULT-WE SHOULDN’T HAVE ARGUED!!” Jay screams in anxiety, anger and terror and at that moment, the car-driver runs out.It’s a middle-aged man “No way I was driving at 30 miles per hour!” he says in shock.A woman runs out of her house screaming on the phone ” JUST COME NOW!!” she screams ” It’s all right darling- don’t cry dear, they’re coming, the police and the ambulance are coming, sweetie-pie!”she explains to Jay.There’s a moment of of silence and then Jay screams:”I just want Em back!!!!” and lies next to her friend sobbing and hugging, whispering ‘it’s all right, you’re not dead!’.The man covers his face in shock, the woman paces up and down looking helpless, Jay sobs and screams, while Em lies unconscious, blankly staring up at the sky, when the police and the ambulance come soaring through.”Little girl, you need to leave her, because we need to load her onto the stretcher.” the medic says calmly, but Jay refuses, ” No!” she screams through chattering teeth, the medics pick Em AND Jay up onto the stretcher. All the while, Jay clings onto Em ” Oh, Em!” she sighs.At the hospital, Em doesn’t make it, Jay screams and bangs her head in frustration, she has to be taken away and when she asks if she could see her friend, they refuse.At school, the next day and throughout the days that follow, Jay feels she is being either followed or watched, but there’s no-one there, but one day when she looks and there’s…”Em!” Jay shouts and collapses. From that day on, throughout the day Em is there, right beside her, Jay finds this much less hard, but soon finds out she’s wrong!She’s in trouble with the teacher, she can’t make friends and everyone think she’s a nutter- everyone, except ‘Fatboy’ Sam,the class-comedian, who understands, which is a real help!The days go on and Em’s funeral edges closer.Jay panicks, but the funeral is sorted out fine!One week later, after the funeral, Jay is asked to attend a hearing, she wears her funeral clothes and goes to the hearing, hand in hand with her parents. When she’s called, the judge says:” Good morning( ‘more like GOOD MOURNING’, thought Jay) Jade Smith, you witnessed your best friend collide with a car. There was a car crash right before your eyes, involving Emerald Jones. Is this true? How did you feel?” the judge boomed,this was Jay’s reply:
    ” Yes, Em- I mean Emerald- did collide with a car and…(she burst into tears) she didn’t make it the nurse said, when she said that, I felt that it was all my fault and I was so angry!!” Jay sobbed, the judge continued, ” Please summarise what happened in your own words.” he said, Jay moaned ” Well,…” and rushed out. She didn’t know where she was running, but she knew she wanted to talk no-more about Em’s death.She rushed out of the large, oak doors and onto the pavement, she ran across the road and when Em tried to hold her back, but her hands just slid through, CRASH, Jade lay limp while her soul rushed over to meet ghost Em. They cried and laughed then grew, golden wings and flew up to heaven.
    The End

    I walked inconspicuously so no-one ; I said no-one would guess that I killed the banker and stole one million pounds. But what I did not know was that I was being followed by a man who had seen the murder and crime I had made. So as I strolled down the street the man had called the police and before I knew it was being chased by 8 police cars. I ran, cursing angrily at the person who had snitched clutching my heavy sack of money all the way until at last I had found myself at a dead end……..

    Friendly or Fierce

    One adventurous, sunny afternoon, Franklin a fisherman was as busy as a bee on the coast of Costa Rica, catching some salmon fishes. Suddenly an immense sea creature swam along and tilted Franklin’s minute wooden boat to the side, making Franklin fall out of his boat. Franklin was very puzzled wondering what tipped his boat over. Well it had:
    Sharp white teeth as sharp as a razor
    What is it? (I hope I am not its lunch!)
    It is one of the most dangerous sea creatures you could ever think of
    Oh no! What is it? (I am petrified)
    It is a kind of vast fish you could ever see.
    What is it? (I hope I am at least bigger than it probably not)
    It lives underwater.
    What is it? (Oh no! am swimming underwater)
    OH NO! it’s a SHARK!
    I’m being followed by a shark!
    Would I survive? don’t ask me, ask the shark if it would spare me.

  36. In the middle of nowhere
    There I lay
    On the boat that I had made

    I was terrified of eels
    But petrified of sharks
    But then I saw a seal

    The thought of pirates
    Gave me a fright
    The day getting shorter with no light

    I wondered and wondered
    Whether there would be a sight
    But then I plundered and plundered
    In case of the deep deep bite

    My hunger crept in
    The sea shores with my tummy roars
    And there I see
    Finally the land of the Pharaohs

    Tired and worn out, when will this journey ever come to an end?
    Dirty and salty, is the seawater below him, the explorer, called Ricky didn’t realise what dangers the sea hid and was soon going to find out.
    Unfortunately, his mini draft was not designed for.

    Suddenly Ricky heard a loud, splashing noise coming from behind him, he was terrified he had never been in such a harsh situation in his exploring career.
    What shall I do thought Ricky and what can it be?
    He slowly turned his head, to see nothing.
    Strange he thought, very strange indeed.
    He looked again and saw a… SHARK!
    “ARRGGGHHHHHH” screamed the petrified explorer what’s going to happen next.

    The deadly, dangerous and fearsome creature continued to hunt his prey, ready to snap the shark waved his jaw…

  38. Shrey Biswas says:

    The wind seemed perfect. The sky was blue, and the day was warm. What could go wrong? But the teenager on the raft was not an ordinary teenager. He was Beck Gradler, world’s youngest survival expert. At 16, he knew more than most other experts in a lifetime. But, the beautiful day distracted him, and the dolphins that came a bit before were lovely; he even danced with them. He wondered why the disappeared so quickly. But he was feeling too good to notice. Then his survival instincts told him to snap out of it. The dolphins were sharper than him. A long, black triangle circled him. The Bella Senora was being circled by a shark.

    He immediately saw the reason. When the dolphins had come, he had danced with them and knocked the fish guts into the sea. He leaned over and scooped as much of it as he could. When he was small, he was watching some of his father’s colleagues build a boat. Giving him a knowing look, Beck’s father had poured a tin of fish guts into the sea. Within minutes, three tiger sharks were circling the boat. Beck had learnt some facts that day. One: A shark can smell a drop of blood in an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Two: A shark could go really fast. Beck had worked it out. Faster than he could manage flat out downhill on a racing bike. Three: It’s always best to stay away. The shark watched him. He had a belly that needed filling, and that blood had obviously come from that flimsy pile of logs. So he charged.

  39. Bear and the Shark
    It was just an ordinary morning; I built myself a raft and floated on the warm ocean sea, just off the coast of the Caribbean. I was staying on the island of Jamaica for a month or two just to put my survival skills to the test.
    Sorry, my name’s Bear, Bear Grills the famous adventurer.
    I have stayed in some really hot places with wild lions as neighbours, and alternatively some really cold places with not much life at all, but I have always returned home in one piece.
    Anyway I was bobbing up and down on the crystal clear sea enjoying the sunshine, when out of the corner of my eye I just happened to see something. It was big and grey and stuck up out of the water. I thought that I was just my imagination until I saw the grey thing again and suddenly panic flooded over me, the big grey thing was a shark fin!! I immediately thought what I was going to do – this isn’t good!
    I saw a fish swimming by my raft and grabbed it out of the water. I killed it and threw it as far away past the shark as possible to enable me more time to paddle to the shore , onto the land and safety. I paddled and paddled with all my might, the muscles in my arms screaming in pain.
    I got to the shore and leaped onto land. I turned and watched the fish get demolished in one quick bite. Luckily the fish was dinner, not me!

  40. “Ummm, I think where’re being followed…….”
    It all started one summer’s day in particular because it was sunny as ever and warmer than the average, that by far, I must say. I was on holiday with my best friends Christian and Felix. We thought it a perfect day for rafting at the seaside, but Felix said he didn’t want to come so it was just Christian and I. We built a magnificent raft with lots of other attachments such as oar-holders, a cosy little cab that could only fit one person, a rudder that was controlled by the person in the cab and a ‘cup filler’ that was simply a huge bottle of water, upside-down, with a valve and some plastic cups in the cab. Christian was to go in the cab for 15 minutes then I would and so on.

    After about an hour of going round to the rocks and back to the beach, I had this nagging feeling that something was following us. So I started to look back every now and then, but every time I started to turn around, there was a splash and the water was calm, Christian had also noticed it and we were starting to edge towards the shallows. The strange thing was, though that there seemed to be a dark thing behind the raft, we called it the raft’s shadow, just to stop us getting scared any more. I suddenly turned round so quickly that the ‘thing’ didn’t have time to submerge (Christian did this with me) and we saw a shark (fin)! At that moment we were the most petrified human-beings on Earth! We paddled like mad, only to find out, when we got to shore, that it was Felix with his realistic shark-suit, so that’s where he was then! The ingenious suit had an air tank and the snorkel was cleverly fitted into the top fin!

    It was a hot summers day,
    there I lay
    in the middle of nowhere,
    water surrounding everywhere

    I think I’m being followed
    by an evil killer shark
    this surely wasn’t the time to go to the park.

    the pointed fin of the shark
    made me want to scream
    my face was boiling sweating and wet,
    I wish me and the shark never met.

    I’M BEING FOLLOWED
    Dark in the night
    I saw a figure
    Swimming up from the depths
    It was a colossal fish

    Dark in the night
    I noticed a shape
    Jumping above me
    It was a agile dolphin

    Dark in the night
    I gazed at a fin
    Following me with speed
    Aaah it’s a deathly shark

    Light in the morning
    The was still a fin
    Following me so carefully
    And finally it killed me

    Shark!

    Tired and worn out, when will this journey ever come to an end?
    Dirty and salty, is the seawater below him, the explorer, called Ricky didn’t realise what dangers the sea hid and was soon going to find out.
    Staring into the salty sea water, he began to get bored.
    When suddenly he heard a splashing noise he got out his camera ready to snap.
    He couldn’t believe himself, he missed it!
    Outraged and furious he was going mental!
    But he doesn’t want to know what the monstrous beast is.
    When he finds out it’s likely to be last thing he’ll ever do.
    Then he heard the sound a second time, getting awfully excited with this curious sound
    He held out his camera three two one… snap!!
    He finally got it, he slowly turned his head to see a shark!!!
    Trembling, he counted the fearsome creature’s shiny white teeth its cold breath right against his face, while smelling meaty fish.
    He directed his raft away towards the shore.
    When he had finally reached home he had a nice relaxing bath.
    That shark was like an angry erupting volcano.

  45. James Deacon says:

    Sailing across the seas of the world, the waters were quiet, too quiet. There I was sitting on my birch-wooden raft. Attached by vines and leaves. A tide wave came down. “Somethings wrong, how can there be a tide wave when I’m in the middle of nowhere!?”

    The raft shook,the vines snapped.

    Then I remembered! BLOOD.

    I looked at my leg, pouring with blood (of course). I stood up. It was a shark. I did the nicest thing possible I reasoned with him. Sadly he didn’t agree and bit my leg! So mean.

    Rowing through the blazing hot sun is difficult especially rowing quickly from a shark. Land was spotted. I paddled and paddled.

    A storm hit, a wave rose, and a splash.

    One day later, washed up on the sea bed of soft, silky sand. Relieved, I searched the land.

  46. OC says:

    MY JOURNEY
    Weak and cold I make my way back to shore, that boat ride was horrendous everyone had to evacuate, but there was nothing left for me. I swam as far as I could until I came to a halt, I found a bits of worn out wood I vigorously put them together. Traveling for days on an empty tummy, shore approached driving nearer and nearer I felt relieved it will all be over. But… what was that sound. I stopped. I hid. I listened. There was something swimming towards me, something with a very pointy fin it looked like an obtuse angle but I don’t know what it is… it slowly rose from the water teeth as sharp as daggers, a red blood mouth like a rose. I froze of fear a horrible struck came into my head “there is only one thing that looks like this and that is… A SHARK” It chopped my raft in one big gulp, and now he was coming for me, swimming like a penguin, I was swimming for my life this is it, I might have to call it the end. I slowly turned round treading what would happen, but there was nothing there the shark must of got caught on that ship I swam through, this was the best part of the day. And I reached the shore from swimming so fast now I can make my way back home, and enjoy something to eat.

  47. FC says:

    Shark!

    If you’re being followed you’d surely realise, especially if it was by a shark.
    Well the most experienced explorer in Europe didn’t realise he was being tracked down by the king of beasts, the shark.
    Some sailors were staring down.
    When the shark finally struck, it took him by surprise, it didn’t happen straight away, the sea howled, the waves crashed, the weather was like Antarctica.
    When a dolphin swam in, shocking the cruel monster the explorer pounced on the dolphins back and rode safely back to shore.
    A day not to forget.

  48. One day, a man named Paul was out scuba diving with some professionals, when he saw a shark he tried to stay calm but he couldn’t ” ahhhhhhhhh” he screamed “help me” the shark was coming after him. But then he caught his leg and cut it but because of the blood the shark started following him so he swam to the boat and they set of with shark following them then all of a sudden loads of water started gushing in the shark was biting the boat up, so they jumped out and swam to shore then the shark stopped following them eventually.The man was absolutely horrified of going scuba diving again he never did, he was to nervous to so he went snorkeling with fish instead a bit more safer and more experienced with it than scuba diving.

  49. Lauren Cooper says:

    A man called Scott was sailing through the magical, clear, aqua ocean on his makeshift raft that he built on the coast of St. Kitts, North America. He was thinking how long it would take him to float all the way to Cuba, which he could see from where he was now. For some strange reason, Scott thought he was being followed. He spun around and didn’t see anything but miles and miles of splashing water all around him. How would he make it to shore? Scott felt the waves lap against his bare feet. Something was moving underneath him. He looked down and saw…. a SHARK!

  50. James Deacon says:

    The shining,crystal water flowed elegantly around the ravenous mans wooden raft. While a great grand shark came up quickly behind the small raft! However the man was unaware horribly,
    The grey shark quietly lurked under the rotted, salty, wooden raft preparing for a mighty ambush against the mans small steel pitchfork.

  51. Sophie H-E says:

    UMMM I THINK YOU’RE BEING FOLLOWED!

    It all started when a impoverish, unfavorable man (with enormous holes in his clothes) was floating on a ancient peace of wood in the middle of the sparkling, dark, deep, blue sea. The waves, which are very peaceful, gathered around him. He didn’t know where he was so he was a BIT worried. The peaceful waves that gathered him didn’t gather him for long because a colossal, deadly shark jumped fearlessly out of the sparkling, dark, deep, blue sea looking very hungry. The impoverish, unfavorable man was nearly in tears screaming and shaking. He tried to get away but the shark followed him, he was terrified. The deadly shark bit the mans arm and THEN he got his leg. He couldn’t keep his eyes open for much longer. He was trying to stay alive but he just couldn’t do it. He struggled and struggled. He was scared he would die early after all he is only 25 years old. Dying at that age is awful.

    THE END!!!!!

  52. Adam says:

    ‘Ummm, I think you’re being followed!’ called the idle sun-bathers, but I ignored them and observed the peaceful vista: the azure ocean reflecting and rippling the sun’s clear reflection; ebbing and subsiding tides; inquisitive adolescents carving amazing sandcastles carefully, like artists; and now, the pastel-orange sky, creating wonderful silhouettes and a shark beside…WHAT! A SHARK!

  53. Ayush says:

    One extremely hot summers day a needy man who survived a terrible crash in the middle of Asia .A lovely beautiful day was here and all the violent sea creatures loved having a wondrous time eating a enormous bite of flesh from poor young animals.A stressed man rowed steadily from east to west like a fearless and brave hero. Soon a horrific dolphin came out from the deep seas searching for massive and eatable fish from beneath the surface. Sooner or later a lonely, aged migrating turtle arrived looking for dry land near the sea.The stressed and fearless man rowed all his might to reach to a busy island. A dolphin swam gently towards him like a tired swimmer. The migrating turtle followed the man as if he was creeping up someone but the dolphin reached him first and flew a sound of speaking. The man noticed both of the sea creatures and they were friendly so the man left his boat and rode on the generous dolphin and rode themselves to the most coolest island.

    It was a couple of days ago when I was on a boat and something was under it. It was a SHARK!! “Help!” I cried. I paddled and paddled until I got far away. BANG! The shark head butted my boat. I fell off! I swam and swam back to my boat so fast I couldn’t see the shark any more. I decided never ever to go out on a boat ride again!

    One sunny day off the Caribbean coast there was a man who was stranded and he couldn’t get to the island because there was sharks surrounding him, circling him so he wasn’t able to leave his tiny bamboo boat and the nearest town was 5.642 Km away! Soon the man gave up waiting and started paddling away, he thought he was safe but he wasn’t because one of the sharks noticed that he was moving and started to follow him all the way to the town! staying low by the pier the shark waited for the next boat to leave then it would attack it hopefully taking it down with no evidence…

    Shark Attack!

    One sunny day in Hawaii, a large raft was gliding through the water, as quietly as a mouse. There was an average-aged man named Joey Calibre on top of the raft, sunning himself. He was an altruistic, brave man who was well-known and was given great adulation from the villagers and most ordinary people. When he was sunning himself he noticed a fin cutting through the water towards him. Joey thought it was a dolphin’s fin but when he came to know that it was a shark’s fin, he jumped only a millimetre. CRASH! Through the raft the shark sliced, turning the raft to splinters within seconds. SPLASH! Joey leaped into the water, causing a wave which sent the shark off target. Swim, swim, swim through the water and swim, swim, swim through the water. There! Dry land to swim to! The situation was like a race of wild animals against man. Almost there! The island was just ahead! And………………………………arrival! Back to safety.

    On one beautiful day , when the sun was smiling ,but the wind was like a hurricane, a young man was lying uncomfortably , looking at the sky ( almost left blind ) because of the sun . Suddenly , there was a weird noise ‘snap ‘ snap’ the curious man looked over the boat into the sea oh no he pondered it was a deadly shark ! swimming in the open sea .The shark was as big as a blue whale and the monstrous shark ugly , yellow teeth were as sharp as a knife .His eyes were as big as a frisbee and the creature was incessantly swimming round in circles he was as quick as lighting and as terrifying as a lion even more. The smiling shark grabbed on the boat bang ,boom . The shocked man quickly dived into the cold , ice sea and swam as fast as his little legs could take him he luckily escaped and from that day he has never gone into the sea.

    One blistering, hot day two speed-boat racers met each other to go on a daring journey. They first had an idea of catching a real life whale so they could show people that they were pirates but it was a joke.suddenly a massive shock could be felt which shook the whole boat around. then a massive fin shot out. They thought the fin belonged to a shark because it was so sharp. then the animal shot out of the sea like a dolphin. It was a whale, an enormous whale. The senior boat driver then quickly pressed his foot as hard as he could on the accelerator and the boat sped of as fast as lightning.

    I don’t know what happened that day…however, all I know is that if I relived that moment i would of tried to make things different.

    “Ummm , Millie I think we’re being followed.”Trembled Louisa.
    “Shhhhhh” Gradually tiny ripples of water departed from the boat as I looked down for the first time. Unsurprisingly,I saw a light turquoise colour ombreae into a deep ,navy blue.This was only the start of it though.The water seemed unwelcoming unlike home (America).Furthermore, I thought to myself that we were now in Australia and things would be divergent.Suddenly, a crimson red substance rose to the surface of the water.”What on earth is that?”I asked Louisa
    “I .. I ….I think it .. it’s blood.”she stuttered.
    “AHHHHHHH!”we screamed in unison.A coallsal scarred great white shark dived above the oceans head.Fortunately,I was ok but when I looked behind me Louisa was not there.I looked down and… I saw …her staring at me while being dragged down into the deep dark sea by the monster.

    The feelings from that day terrified me.Also detectives recovered a girl’s torso from under the deep.It was ripped apart and thought to be Louisa.When this fatality happened I felt so tense I could of burst and these feelings still remain with me…Probably for the rest of my life.

    This is my holiday diary. School wanted us to note down every thing we saw in the holidays. So that is what I’m doing.

    Day One: We got prepared for our three day sea trip. Two vans were needed to move all the supplies to the harbour. It took a long time but it was worth it. We double, triple and quadruple checked. The last sleep in a bed before my sea adventure.

    Day Two: Mum woke me up at silly o’clock in the morning to set sail. Lovely weather took hold of the ship and seized it in the correct direction. Dolphins raced the wind, like a cheetah on the African plain.

    Day Three: Still beautiful weather on the coast of the Caribbean Seas. We saw super stunning shipwrecks still and motionless on the sea floor, but before we could set sail for back home, a figure came stealthily and bit my leg! YOW! I was knocked out.

    Day Four: I’m in the hospital waiting for a nurse. Nobody wants to come because shark bites are deadly…
