Introduction

The Final Voyage Hi, my name is Evan Araia. I'm 29 years old and live in Dover. Have you ever heard that name? I can guess that you have probably heard my name in news broadcasts or may be newspapers. I was the only and sole survivor of the Cruise line; Aurora the inspiration which was attacked by pirates in the Red Sea. This is the true account of the dreadful and ghastly experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life. Monday 8th October 2010: The day before I got on the cruise liner I always have had the habit of waking up in the morning at 6 o'clock and going to the park to have a few cigarettes. Each time, it never fails to get me refreshed and get me ready for the misfortunes awaiting my day. I have never considered myself a lucky person. Always getting into trouble for something I have not done and by any means having a day that I simply could call "a pleasant day". However I never gave up thinking that someday it will all change, not even today. I went back home and rummaged through the pile of cloths to look for a clean shirt and jeans to wear for work. I haven't washed any of my clothes since my nana died eight months ago. ...read more.

Conclusion

So I stuffed my hand to my pockets and fished the craggy and battered brochure with the number on. I turned the telly on and waited for the program to start- 5 minutes to go. I don't know why but I was anxious; maybe it is because it is make or break time. I checked the numbers on the ticket, 1453-9528. The program started and I waited for the first number to be drawn. Ten balls were placed on eight, claustrophobic looking plastic spheres. Then the presenter shouted "Let them rip!" the entire spheres started to rotate endlessly. After some time a ball appeared on the bottom of the first sphere. The presenter approved the number shouting put "1". Then the next ball cam into view, it was 4 then 5...3...9...5. After that number showed my mind started to flow with thoughts, of confusion and deep-rooted expectation, can it really be me? Is it ever possible for "the most unfortunate man on earth to win this draw? My thoughts were interrupted by the next number becoming visible. I could hear my heart was pounding as loud as a drum: it was number 2. I couldn't bear the tension, it was about to drive me insane. Abruptly the last number appeared and it was number 8. I was in seventh heaven and extremely happy. I could not believe my luck- I am now the luckiest man on earth. ...read more.
