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.
