4. Adventure

As soon as I entered this genre, all I saw was darkness. Everywhere. At first, I thought I was still in the horror genre and the girl had succeeded in killing me but then the blackness that left me stranded began to clear up. I found myself laying inside a cramped, wooden boat in the middle of the ocean. I sat up with a start which caused the boat to bob furiously on the surface of the water. I grabbed tightly on the edges of the boat; trying to steady the sudden movement and soon enough, the boat began to leisurely move across the water. The sky above me was painted a gentle orange with patches of pale pink which gave a calming atmosphere but I was far from calm. I only had a few hours left until my sister and I would be stuck in here.

The thing that kept lingering in my mind about this genre was that I didn't know how to get out. I could see no land for miles and I had nothing to steer the boat or even move it. I slumped back against the boat with a sigh as I watched the cloud float by. What else could I have done? I was stranded in the middle of the ocean with nothing to do so all I did was wait. The good thing was that this was the last genre to go through so I must be close to Madeline by now. I wonder what we should do with the book after all of this trauma has ended? I think we should burn it. That way, it could never bring harm to anyone else.  I mean something like it shouldn't even exist. With the power that it has, it could probably take the whole world if we're not careful.

Suddenly, a huge group of intimidating clouds swarmed over the amber sky and the gentle ripples of the sea became vast waves of swirling water; ready to swallow life. An immense bolt of lighting brightened the darkened sky as heavy drops of rain began to fall. The waves picked up even more; making the boat rock from side to side on the tall waves of water. Great. Just what I needed. A storm. The rain poured down with might which made it hard to see and the wind blew frantically through my chestnut brown hair. As a consequence of this terrible weather, a towering wave of hard-hitting water came charging towards me and the simple wooden boat. I was going to drown. I curled myself into a small ball; getting ready for the impact but then a ray of luck shone down. A thundering shout from a nearby ship was the help that I needed. I tried to stand up and wave my arms rapidly in hope that the person shouting would notice me. I then saw the person who was shouting out to the wind; it was a pirate.

" Shiver me timbers!   Avast ye! We'll come save ya! Be a marooner(slave) on our Jolly Rodger and we'll help ya!" yelled the pirate.

" Fine. Ok I'll be your marooner. So, please- help me!" I said pleadingly.

The group of pirates let out a chuckle and started to haul me in toward their ship. I know that I told them that I would be their slave but I'll worry about that when the time comes. The captain of the ship gave out a fat, grubby hand that I grabbed tightly but then an unexpected wave hit me with great force and I found myself falling in the depths of the dark ocean. I swam desperately to the surface but the furious waves kept stopping me from moving upwards. I was running out of air. I needed to keep going. If I died here Madeline will- no! I can't think about that! I will survive this! With the last of my energy, I thrust my body towards the fresh air but then a current underwater pulled me back. Tired and feeble, I let my body sink to the sandy ground. I had failed. I was going to die and there was nothing that I could do. My sister and I would be a part of this book forever. I closed my eyes; accepting my saddening fate. The treacherous waters swarmed angrily; never stopping. I would die here in these waters and no one would never know. A small tear escaped from my eye as my life began to fade.

That was when I heard it. A voice. Madeline's voice. She was yelling out my name; over and over again. "Madeline." I thought." I'm coming!" As the adrenaline pumped through my veins, throughout my body, I reached out to the light which was where the voice was coming from. The light enclosed around me like a shell as my consciousness faded.
