Day 14

LAST DAY! Wow this has gone so fast its crazy!

We wake the next day full of excitement and eat a good breakfast quickly and get ready fast so we can swim out to the spaceship again and deliver the ankh! So when everyone is ready we try and get straight out there to present the aliens with our gift. None of us can wait until 12 noon, so we leave at ten to 12 instead!

The swim is pretty straight forward and no one gets tangled up this time, we get there in short timing, and none of us can contain our excitement, so we quickly jump out and on to the opening of the ship and I press the button again and this time the ship starts going up, up, up, into the sky but very slowly. The alien opens the door and summons us in and to follow him.

We follow him into the control room, and he says very slowly, "You have the ankh?"
"Yes, we do. You learnt to speak english?" I say, after all I am the spokeswomen for our group.
"Very good, and yes we have learnt to speak english, it has been quite a challenge. Can we please have the ankh?"
"That's good, yes, here it is." Morgan steps forward, slowly she is a little bit apprehensive of the aliens, "Here, it was a gift to me, but you need it to get us back so here take it." She says frightened.
"Thank you very much, I sense tension between me and you, there is no need to worry, you will not regret this decision. We are on your side, ahhhh that's better."
Morgan chukles a little bit. I can see why! Haha.

The alien places tha ankh in a little slot next to the steering wheel, and we start getting faster and faster slowly leaving Matainui, but hopefully not forever!

Day 13

We wake up the next day and we decide to go to the little beach by the mountain, and it is just a normal beach with palm trees and warm golden sand and bright blue water crashing against the shore. We thought we would find something interesting like a spaceship, but no, This beach was normal, wait is that a whale I can see in the ocean? No! Its a spaceship! Oh no, it is a whale, I made mistake. The big grey object started coming closer, more of its body started emerging, I'm mistaking again it must be a spaceship! This might be our chance to get off this island?! Or it could just be another one of the spaceships we went in last time, or the same one even. But still we could find a way to get off here with it!

I really want to go out there but the guys think its too dangerous for a girl, I think their attitude is totally sexist so I insist on going, so James, Mac and I swim out to the strange space ship and on our way Mac got caught in a big clump of thick deep green seaweed, at first me and James didn't know where he had gone and we worried a little bit then we see bubbles arising from the bottom and realise he must be down there so quickly James dives under and I'm quick to follow, we find Mac swinging his legs and arms around in anguish. We try and pull him up, but hes really caught up, we untangle him as fast as possible, and quickly pull him to the surface. He is OK but very shocked about what had just happened and is very cautious for the rest of the way.

When we finally get there we find that is in fact a real spaceship. We try and find the entrance, and it takes ages and allot of breaths but we soon get there. When we do, there is a button and I press it as soon as I see it, and slowly the spaceship starts coming out of the water and rising to the top of the water so its like floating on top, then the door opens and we go in, when we get in one of the aliens we saw before, hands as each a towel and, summons us to follow it or him or her? It leads us to the control room and hands us a pad of paper and a pen to write in, so I grab it and write, "Hello, we meet you last time at the top of the mountain? Do you remember?" It take the paper back and writes "Yes I remember so do my fellow alien friends, we saw you approaching in our security camera, how did you find us?" some how they must have learnt to write in English? "We found you because I spotting you ship bobbing in the ocean and I thought it was a whale, but then realised it was you guys, do you know how to get us off this island?"
"Yes, you can come with us, but only when your mission has been completed, you must find an ankh that looks like this, (draws a picture of the ankh) and bring it to us, it is the key to the way out."
"Yes, OK OK, but when do we need to do it by?"
"Tomorrow, if possible."
"OK, we can do it, we will be back here tomorrow with the ankh at no later than 12 noon."
"Thank you, we will promise to look after you, once this is finished, I will show you the way out."
"Thank you."

It then leads us back to the door, and waves us goodbye. We swim back to shore, Mac being very careful, and when we get back we a bowled over with questions, "What happened?" "Can we get home?" lots of questions. We tell them what happens in turns, and everyone is fascinated, and when we say about the ankh Morgan jumps up and says "I have the ankh!" And we all scream and shout and applaud the fact that we can finally get off Matainui and see our parents and family and parents again! We all embrace.

For the rest of the night we cuddle up and are all very excited.

Day 12

The next morning we all told Morgan what had happened, Emma then told them to bring her a long twig and she made that into a rope, they then put it around Morgans neck and I woke up. They told her never to take off the necklace because something very bad would happen.
She dare not take off the necklace in any situation, I could tell she kept thinking about the dream and what if it came true the document said that there were two groups and she seemed really scared.
I heard her say herself if I don't think about it I won't get scared and so I did.
We forgot it and carried on with our journeys.
Morgan, Leah, Emma and I went down to the beach around the little island and rested there for a while.

Suddenly a green alien figure came and took us we suspected it was one of the bad aliens from my dream, we were freaking out as we knew what would happen as it was exactly like Morgans dream!

Day 11

The next morning I awake first and take my blanket and go and watch the sun rising, its such a gorgeous sight. Then I hear rustling behind me and then I see Leah coming up to sit with me too, "Hey, its pretty isn't it?" Leah says. "Yea its gorgeous. Hey come share my blanket with me, I need some company." I reply.

"Thanks, it is a little bit chilly aye?" Leah remarks. "Mm mm, it is." I say again. "Did you get to sleep at all last night?!" Leah says annoyed, "Not really, aye. Morgan kept screaming and moving around?!" I say, "Yeah I hope she's all right." Leah says, "Yea, ask her what she was dreaming about last night. Because if it keeps happening none of us will get any sleep at all." I state. "Yes, that's a good idea." Leah finishes.

Then we enjoy the view for a couple of minutes and then we go back to camp and Morgan is no where to be seen, we don't want to wake the others so we go trying to find her, and exploring a little bit too! We search and search through the thick, heavy forest and then come across a clearing and find Morgan lying on the ground with her chest throbbing and the Ankh lying right beside her!? Morgan is unconscious and we try and wake her up but shes completely out to it so me and Leah have to carry her back to camp, we hope the others haven't woken up to find we weren't there because they would get a bit of a fright. So off we go trudging but through the forest, at least there is a little bit of a pathway where we can see our way back because we just followed the path we made on the way to find her.

We get back to camp and we find that the others are actually awake and playing knuckles bones with some stones they found to pass the time, "Where the hell have you guys been?" Emma shouts angrily. "We were trying to find Morgan because she went sleep walking and didn't comeback, and now shes unconscious and the ankh is no longer inside of her. We are really confused, but when she wakes up hopefully she'll be able to answer our questions." I explain. "Oh, okay, sorry for shouting." Emma apologizes. "Oh, don't worry we knew you guys were going to be at least a little bit angry, you had a right to as well." Leah says acceptably.
So we sit around for a while and wait for Morgan to wake up, because we can't really do anything or go anywhere unless shes awake.

"Maybe we need to put the ankh back in her to get her to wake up?" James says. "Oh yea, that's an awesome idea!" Mac says. "But we can't really do that a unless we stab it into her?! And we shouldn't do that, because it might kill her." I say intelligently. "Well, why don't we make a necklace and put it on her?" Emma says like we are a bunch of idiots. "Oh, yea okay." James says.

Then Emma shape shifts a long twig into a peice of thin rope and links it through the ankh and ties knot into it and puts it over heer head.

Slowly but gradually Morgan starts to wake up, she seems very dased and confused. I get her a cannister of some of the special waterfall water to make her feel better. Soon she does.

Day 10

We all wake up feeling one million times better than before! And decide to make a plan for the day ahead and try and do something productive with our day because we are all feeling restless and need to do something to keep us moving.

I have an idea that we could visit the little island just off the coast a little, or maybe visit the little beach bay looking thing by the big mountain. We decide to go to the island first, and if we have enough time we'll go to the beach after. Just to check it out, we pack up some canisters with the waterfall water in it, so we don't get dehydrated or if we just need a little boost, we also grab a couple of apples off the tree and a few handfuls of berries, and off we go! On a expedition to the little island.

We fly over and don't see any one, they are probably still recovering from the ice cream attack, because we did have an advantage because we had the special water that helps your health and nutrition. Maybe we should let the other know about the waterfall so they can get healthier too? No, we don't won't it to run out!

We finally get there and land on it's lovely beach with palm trees and golden sand. It feels so good to be in the warm summer heat. We all run down and lie on the sand! It is a very beautiful island. It is the nicest feeling ever just lying and soaking up the sun. We go deeper in to the island, and then we find Mr Woody and Miss McConnell's old house they were going to live in! Ha ha its very funny its small and cosy looking and made out of limestone and other materials. Its funny that there used to be life here.

Suddenly it starts getting dark, it must have taken us longer than we thought to get over here?! Darn we won't have time to go to the other beach today, we'll have to stay the night and get up early to do it tomorrow. So Emma creates a bonfire and a big shield around it to protect the environment from bad fumes in the smoke, and we roast marsh mellows and relax and have fun.
Well we probably wouldn't have any marsh mellows but maybe some berries!
After that we pack up and stay the night.

Day 9

We wake up very slowly and everyone is feeling very ill, even me and I love ice cream. Yes we all feel very crook and are moving very slowly, we all refuse another breakfast of ice cream. I for one just can't stomach it! As much as I want to I just can't have the ice cream I am just to full for words! Which is totally strange for me because I love and adore ice cream!

We talk amongst ourselves and decide as a group that we are going to go back to the waterfall and refresh ourselves with some of that water!

So off we go flying off to the waterfall and have some water then go into a deep, deep sleep and try and sleep off our terrible sickness we have picked up!

Day 8

We all rise the next morning to a lovely breakfast of ice cream, I love ice cream and could never get sick of it, but that is not the sam ewith some of the others, some of them are feeling really sick. Hope they start to feel a little bit better. Any way when I hop out of the tent I see this huge pool of ice cream! How crazy is that? Jordan and Cairo are going around delivering these weird looking special suits that they are telling us we must wear when we go in the ice cream pool or else we will get full really easy and won't be able to enjoy it as much as we could. So I agree and quickly wake the others so thay can come and have some fun too!

"Wait a minute!" Morgan cries questioningly, "This could be some kind of plot to get control over all of us?!"she finishes.

"NO, don't listen to her, she doesn't know what she's talking about. Everybody just calm down, I swear on my life that I am most definatly not doing a thing like that!" Jordan shouts certainly. Well I beleive him and so do alot of other peopl, so I think it should be fine. So we all take our suits put them on briskly so we get in first and hop in the endless pit of ice cream! "WOO HOO!" I keep hearing excited screams! This is the most fun I've had in ages!

Well the days nearly gone so we pack up and stay the night again.
