6. Storms at Sea
It was a quiet night and everybody was sleeping on the raft's sturdy planks until BOOM! lighting raced across the pitch black sky and thunder crackled shortly after, the sea started churning. the storm was almost there. "Anthony wake up!" Zoey shouted, springing up from her sleep. "The storm!" Hillary said waking up at Zoey's voice and pointing to a near by flash of lighting. "Everybody! secure extra rope around the raft!" Anthony ordered as the foursome did as told. Zoey repaired all cracks with mud but the churning sea kept splitting it back apart. "No use!" Zoey yelled. Hillary started crying as the rain gushed down. "WE'RE GONNA DIE!" She cried out. "I did not come this far to die Hillary! now get inside the hut!" Zoey ordered. Everybody huddled inside the hut and waited for the storm, But within minutes the sleepiness took over and they all asleep.
CRACK! Thunder woke all of them up within a hour as the waves tossed the small raft. Ben opened the hut's door and hurled into the ocean as the next wave hit, filling the hut with seawater. "EVERYBODY OUT!" Yelled Anthony as they all rushed to the deck. "Throw all heavy things off ship!" Zoey ordered. A big wave built infront of them and they all gasped as it came crashing down. They all screamed as the small boat tossed around tipping this way and that. FLASH! BOOM! The storm was upon them.
rain and seawater blurred their eyes as the little raft got tossed around by the waves. suddenly a snapping sound filled their ears. "The floor!" Hillary screamed out as the rope burst apart. "The hut!" Ordered Anthony. everybody flung themselves into the hut as the last wave came crashing down. All except Anthony that is.
"ANTHONY!" Zoey screamed as Anthony fought to grab onto the hut. But the waves surrounded him and the tide was to strong. He let go. Staring at Zoey he mouthed his last words "I love you" before the wave pushed him down. Zoey lunged for the ocean but Ben held her back screaming for her to calm down. Hillary screamed as the waves came crashing into the hut. And filled their lungs with the water. Then the world went black.
