Day 1

We all arrive at the meeting point for where we are going to take off. Everyone is excited and ready to go, we all have our bags and are prepared. we all aboard the water plane. Sam is a highly trained pilot who is going to fly us to Matainui. I get relaxed into my seat next to Emma and opposite Leah and Morgan. We're ready to go. As we are taking off me, Leah, Morgan and Emma are chatting about how exciting this trip will be. I also have butterflies in my stomach! The water splashes up on the windows and the engine roars as we try to take off.

And there we go, it seems like such a good ride until, we suddenly start going down down down, this is so strange everyone is panicking we thought we were in good hands, but then over that loud speaker Sam is shouting "I never passed my test! I never passed!" now I really start to panic, what did I get myself into? Mr Woody would've known to look into getting an actual professional pilot! How could this happen! We are plummeting so fast it is crazy, I fumble for Emma's hand to see if shes okay. We find each other, but where are the others, oh my goodness this is terrifying. People are screaming and trying to find each other. I have mixed emotions of anger, sadness, utter terror and panic. Suddenly out of the blue I get this strange feeling and I'm just floating, I know whats going on and I have a strange kind of sixth sense of whats happening, but I don't do anything. Everything is going really slowly, it is the weirdest thing I've ever felt. Then everything speeds up again. Back to normal, but now we are going to crash for sure. we hit the ocean with a huge crash and splash.

Water is everywhere, at least it wasn't on the beach it would've been ten times worse. The water is so freezing I'm shivering and I see peoples bags and heads bobbing up and down in the water. Where are my friends? Where is my stuff? How far away is the shore? Will I get there alive? A million questions running through my brain. Finally I find Emma and Morgan but Leah has a broken collar bone and won't stop screaming with agony, I feel so sorry for her, we have to get moving if we want to get to shore before the others. We have chosen to stick together. Morgan drags Leah to shore and me and Emma try recover the bags, we find Morgans, then Leah's, but we cannot find our own. There is no time trying to find them we have to keep going. We catch up to them. It is so difficult to swim against the waves. Its probably about one hundred metres to go, easy for some, not for others. Thank goodness we are all able to do it. Finally we arrive. We are the first the others are still searching for what they can find on the plane. We all collapse, we are exhausted. Emma goes to Leah and helps her with her arm. Then we set off, with our stuff, we are heading to the headland, then going to cut across to the big mountain.

We are going to split from the pack. hopefully then we won't get into to many arguments like we probably would've if we'd stayed. We are all in shock. At least we have each other. We come up the mountain and through some sort of clearing or pathway that must have been made by a mysterious animal or something. So we follow it. We get to a huge massive web, like a spiders web, on the ground there are bones everywhere, I assumed it was animal bones, I didn't really care, but Morgans not so keen. but in the middle there is a huge glowing thing, I feel so enticed towards it, but Morgan is allot more apprehensive than I am. Just have this urge to climb up and see what it is, Emma does to but she wants me to climb up. So Emma gives me a leg up, and I stand on her shoulders, I grab the glowing thing. Then suddenly a huge spider five times bigger than me jumps on me! It is ripping at me and trying to pull me up so it can eat me, Emma grabs my legs and pulls me to get me away from it. Leah and Morgan are throwing things at it to make it let go, I'm terrified! I have a new profound phobia of spiders. I get away and we all run as fast as we can to the left the complete opposite direction we found it! I'm crying and shocked. My arm is so sore and its throbbing. The glowing thing was a trap. Emma and I should've listened, I just had such an urge to take hold of it. Well now we know. If we ever come across something like that again we are prepared.

Then we all realise something, we think we've gone back in time. Back when we came here last, there are ruin of our old villages, we realise we didn't need to bring all the stuff we did because ewe have it all at our old village. This is an amazing discovery. Well now we all need a good nights rest, and think and talk about what we just experienced, it's been a huge day for us. All we can do is hope for a good outcome, and hope that leaving the others was the right thing to do. What a great welcome back!
