A Pirate Adventure~ Part 8
I want to apologize for taking so long to post this part of my series. These past 2 days I’ve been very busy 😉
I slept so peacefully that night (probably because I was actually in a bed!). I woke up suddenly to hear Captain Elena saying,
“Weigh anchor! Prepare to go ashore!”
“We must be at Isla del Tesoro!” I thought to myself.
“Rosa, take the wheel. I’m going to go below deck for a moment.” Captain Elena said.
“Aye, Cap’n!” Rosa replied.
I was just sitting on the bed thinking when,
“So, you’re still here.” Captain Elena said.
“Oh, no! I’m done for!” I thought to myself.
“Well, as long as you’re here you might as well stay with us. Come on deck, we’re gettin’ ready to go ashore.” Captain Elena ordered. I didn’t know what to say, so I just followed her up the stairs. How in the world did she know I was down there? And why was she being so nice?
“There it is. Isla del Tesoro!” Captain Elena said with a grin.
The island was so beautiful with palm trees and all sorts of lovely plants. And right in the middle of the island was an aisle of palm trees and a cave right at the end of it. “That must be where the treasure is.” I thought. Then, suddenly remembering the riddle, I got afraid. I so hoped that Captain Elinor was there waiting to fight! Perhaps she was the ‘hero who would save.’
Amelia put down the ramp and Captain Elena walked down from the ship.
“It’s good to be rich!” She sighed.
We walked up to the cave and there way in the back, was the chest!
“Wow.” I sighed as I thought of how far I’d come. Who would have ever thought that I would be standing in the middle of a cave looking at a treasure chest. It was pretty amazing.
“Open it up, Captain!” Amelia excalimed.
“I have to get out of here!” I said to myself.
“Why isn’t it opening?!? Why isn’t it working?!?!?” Captain Elena yelled.
“The key!!” She gasped, “She gave me the wrong key!!!”
She spun around and saw me on the rocks.
“What key did you give me?!? Where is the real key?!?!?” She yelled at me.
“The key I gave you is to my home. The real key is with your sister!” I said and this time I was the one who was grinning!
Just as Elena was about to yell at me again I heard a voice say,
“Stop right there, Elena!”
That’s where we end Part 8! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming tomorrow! 😀
