The Black Tower

Extracts from this document...


The Black Tower The cool breeze from the sea blows into my dry, tired face. The sun is pouring its heat on me as angry as a bull and sweat trickles from me as if I was a cloud and it was raining. The monkeys of the island surrounded around me ready to go with me. I can see the ship sailing against the waves in an attempt to come to shore and save me. I am on the Black Tower and have sent the distress signal and that's how the ship came for me. The Black Tower...... March 16, 2020 I was washed onto the island from the force of the waves. I was feeling depressed and sad that Mother Nature decided to save me because I wanted to die after what happened to me on my ship. I had to jump off the ship because the sailors and passengers were racist towards me because of my skin. They taunted me and treated me as I was their slave. They were on the verge of pouncing on me like a pack of hungry hounds but I decided to jump and maybe prolong my depressed and sad living. I was saved though and thought that I should make the most of it. All I saw in front of me was an endless sea of sand. ...read more.


I had second thoughts about eating the banana but I still ate it because I had had nothing to eat for the better part of a week. It turned out to be the tastiest meal I had ever eaten. My first mouthful was sweet like sugar and towards the centre it started became sweeter and sweeter but it never went unbearable. It was quite satisfying and having one of these bananas was enough for a meal. The forest was thick and dense, and I realized that if I wanted to reach the tower I would need to make a portable tent to rest in when I was tired of moving and searching for food. I thought that the easiest thing to do would be to use one of the blankets I had brought with me and stand it up with sticks so I had room beneath it to lie down and it could protect me from the weather. March 23 2020 I stopped for the night in my tent. I thought that if I could get through the first night then I could make it until I reached the tower...... The cold air crept through the crevices in my tent chilling me from head to toe. The only way I survived was to tuck up and when I awoke the next morning the grass around me was drenched with dew and rain water. ...read more.


When we walked past the flora we came across a barren patch where the Black Tower stood. The ground around the tower was flat and unusually had no trees on it. There was a thin layer of finely cut erect grass which felt smooth to walk on and smelt of freshly harvested wheat. The colour of the grass was vibrant yellow. I slept here knowing that tomorrow would my day of triumph or despair. March 24, 2020 I woke up early with water pouring onto me from the early rain. I walked towards the entrance to the Tower which loomed with foreboding. They were connected to hinges by chains. I thought that there would be a lot of effort required to push the doors open but it was easy. I went through the doors like a thief. I guessed the best thing to do was to go straight to the top and that's exactly what I did. I did as I felt was right and I thought that was the best decision I had ever made because right at the top was a very primitive but effective way of communicating with the ships around me. I communicated with the closest ship on the radar which turned out to be The White Tree. I thought of thanking the monkeys for getting me this far but I knew they wouldn't understand. The ship was coming and I could see it sailing through the waves, against them...... Words: 1456 ?? ?? ?? ?? Shrayans 10JD English Mr. Lynn ...read more.
