dreamed of making Moor a safe place again. But Nimrod's creatures
were stronger and larger than Adina's army. Nimrod's army

Samantha was an Elf who had the powers of destruction. The
companion who helped them out greatly was named Cobra. He had
huge ears. He knew what was being said a great distance away. He
could read people's minds. He told his companions if anyone was

"Tell me Adina.
What do you see?" He whispered. His voiced roared out loud in her
ears. Smoke came from his nostrils.

time to die. She was fighting to keep her eyes open.
"Hope. I can
see hope." She whispered fixing her gaze on the scene below her.
Her eyes closed and her head bowed down. She was dead. Moor was
in trouble. But deep down in Nimrod's heart, he knew he hadn't
won the war. He had one mission to finish with his companions.
Flames came out of his mouth. The warriors heard the sound of
Nimrod's roar. They knew it. Adina was dead. They were more
determined to win the war.
This was Just
The deadly wrath of the sea
was a very cool, bright and sunny day. The cool breeze was
blowing on my face and my long black hair was behind. The sun was
shining brightly, the sky was light blue and cloudless, but there
no birds in sight. I was on a ship named Charlotte with my
younger brother, Edward, and my younger sister, Elizabeth. We
were travelling with friends. Anne was travelling with her
father, Peter who was also our lovely chef. My uncle, Bruce, was
After some time, I heard the sound of thunder. Then the wind
gusted on my face. My mother yelled out to me to go to go to my
cabin. I obeyed. I was soon to find out that obeying my mother's
simple instruction had saved my life. I walked to my window and
to my horror I saw a huge wave about eight metres high. I was
terrified. I was thinking about the tsunami of a few years ago. I
really felt like I was in the middle of that nightmare. I thought
of what would have happened to me if I had stayed on deck. I'd
Our sail got torn apart and lightning struck. The waves washed
over the ship and dragged the sailors into the unsteady ocean. I
could hear loud screams. I felt as if it was all a dream.
My mum yelled
out "The ship is falling apart."
Then I heard a
loud bang. I flew out of my bed and landed on the floor head
first. I managed to get up. But felt drowsy. My legs started to
feel wet so I looked down. To my horror, I noticed that there was
water in my cabin and it was rising up fast. I dashed out and, as
I went outside the wind blew me away. Then I heard a yell and a
scream and I recognized the voices. It was Anne and her father
Peter. I started struggling to make my way to their cabin door. I
opened the door and a horrible sight awaited me. Peter had blood
running from his face and I shrieked. Anne and I grabbed him and
we went back on deck.
took us five minutes to get to my parents. My dad managed to give
us life jackets. Edward and Elizabeth clung desperately to my
mother. And they were terrified. They had every right to be
terrified. Then our lifeboats got lifted down. My mother, father,
brother and sister managed to climb up to the first boat. Anne,
Peter and I struggled to get into the second boat while our
others named Joseph, Emmanuel, John, Jessica, Mark and Jarred
which I found out later went to the third boat. The third
lifeboat was bigger than the other two.
wasn't long before I noticed that someone was missing. I gasped
when I knew it was Uncle Bruce. He wasn't on deck when we were
given the life jackets. Neither was he there when we went into
our lifeboats. No! Uncle Bruce must have entered a lifeboat. I
wasn't sure but just to make sure my mind wasn't playing tricks
I yelled over
the wind to Anne, "Have you seen Uncle Bruce?"
looked worried and yelled back "No! I didn't see him on deck.
He's not on anyone's boat either."
The words hit me
like a large blow. The wind was strong and the waves were tossing
the boat around.
I yelled out
"Uncle Bruce! Uncle Bruce!"
"It's no use
Caroline! Uncle Bruce might not hear you." Anne yelled.
"He might be
trapped inside his cabin."
Tears fell from
my eyes. Uncle Bruce couldn't have been killed. I could imagine
him trapped or hurt or even worse he may have drowned. I loved
Uncle Bruce. He was the best uncle I could ever have. Now it
seemed he was gone.
sadness turned into joy when I heard a faint cry. "Caroline!
Caroline! Are you there? Help!"
I looked up
putting part of my hair behind my ears, and to my amazement I saw
Uncle Bruce waving his arms frantically.
I looked at
Anne and yelled even louder, "Hey Anne, I can see Uncle Bruce. He
needs us. How are we going to help him?"
back, "We can't row to him, it will take us forever."
But out of the
blue, a wave came and hit our boat really hard. It was so hard,
that it nearly capsized us.
and told me "There's a strong rope leading to the ship. We can
jump into the water and swim to the rope. We haul ourselves up,
get Uncle Bruce, jump into the water and swim back here."
Peter looked at
Anne and me in horror. He's mouth was open wide. He grabbed
Anne's hand and yelled "No! You can't go. It's far too dangerous.
The water is icy cold. You don't have warm clothes on. Anne, I
don't want to lose you like your mother. Please both of you are
too young. I'll go."
her arm away from her father's grasp and yelled, "Dad you can't
go. Look at you. You are battered and bruised. It's far too
dangerous for you. You are not strong, Dad; I beg you let us go."
Peter looked at his young beautiful daughter's calm green eyes
and then looked at me. '
He bit his lip
and yelled, "Yes!"
could see that Charlotte was sinking sideways. I looked down into
the unsteady ocean and to my horror I saw sharks.
Five bull sharks
and two girls, no way! I wasn't going to jump into the water.
Peter was right. It was far too dangerous for two young
yelled over the wind "There are bull sharks in the water. We
can't go and save my uncle. The sharks will eat us alive. I'm not
getting out of this boat."
Anne looked at
me with surprise and yelled, "Don't be ridiculous Caroline. We
are very strong and fast swimmers. We can easily swim past

our boat but this time it was Peter who fell overboard. Anne
screamed as her father fell into the ocean with the bloodthirsty
sharks. But the sharks didn't go after Peter. He quickly
scrambled back into our boat. He was wet and he was shivering
Anne hugged him
and told me, "Caroline, I don't think the sharks you saw were
real. Maybe it was your imagination. Oh come on! We have to go
and save your uncle."
She looked at me
and smiled. I reckon her beautiful, green eyes twinkled. She
stood up and I did the same.
Believe me. I'm not the kind of person that sees someone in
distress and does anything against the odds to help them. I was
just a shy weird normal fourteen-year- old. Standing up was so
hard. I was very worried because bull sharks were one of the
world's deadliest sharks. We were very unsteady and I knew that
if I didn't keep my balance, I'd find myself landing in the
freezing water looking like a Wally.
And with that,
we both jumped into the water and began swimming to the boat. The
current was very strong. My legs started to feel funny. I looked
down and sure enough there were sharks in the water. They were
enormous and they were biting my left leg. "Anne!" I yelled, '
I kicked my legs
to get rid of the sharks. One swam up to my wrist and bit it. I
yelled. I was in pain.
tricking from my wounds. I was terrified because my blood would
attract more sharks. Anne was very lucky. She had reached the
rope and had begun to haul herself up unto the ship. I was hoping
she wasn't going to look at me because I was in bad shape. I was
bleeding, my hair was a mess and there were bull sharks following
With a burst of strength, I managed to get to the rope. Anne was
nearly at the top but I could see she was getting weak. The wind
was growing stronger every minute but my focus to get to Uncle
Bruce. I didn't care about my pain; I just wanted him to be safe.
To my relief, I noticed that Anne was already at my uncle's side.
I managed to haul myself up the ship and finally, I got to Anne.
Uncle Bruce and Anne were very happy to see me but our rescue was
far from over. Both Anne and my uncle gasped when they saw my

surrounded Charlotte and they started leaping up and down. Their
red eyes were the look of fury and hate and their teeth were like
sharp blades waiting to cause harm. Uncle Bruce, Anne and I
huddled together as Charlotte gradually started sinking down into
the shark-feasted ocean.
I yelled to Anne
"Now do you believe me?" she nodded.

He continued "We
can swing across using the rope to get to Peter" Anne and I
hesitated. What if lighting struck us? Or what if we fell off the
rope and landed in the ocean with the bloodthirsty sharks in it?
We wouldn't survive. Thanks to the strong wind, we might be able
to get to Peter.
continued looking at Anne and me. "Come on girls. You jumped into
the ocean filled with bull sharks. You kept your cool in order to
save me. Even though you might not make it, everyone would be
proud of you because your courage never failed."
Anne and I
finally gave up worrying, but I started questioning myself. Why
did the sharks go after me not Anne? Why didn't they bite Peter
when he fell into the ocean? Why didn't they jump into our

the rope. 'Who wants to go first?'
I didn't want to

She didn't want
to go first either.
started getting impatient and said "Anne you and I are going
first, and you Caroline are going last. Okay?"
I yelled back
Now, I really
started to wish I had volunteered to go with Uncle Bruce first.
Soon more problems started to happen. Rain started to pour
heavily on us. That was really bad because the floor started to
get really slippery. Uncle Bruce didn't seem to mind. He just
wanted two of us to be safe. Anne walked over to my uncle and he
grabbed her by the waist.
down and thunder roared. She thought about hesitating but she
nodded her head. Uncle Bruce jumped and held on tightly to onto
Anne. She was screaming and I held my breath hoping nothing bad
would happen to them. I closed my eyes. I didn't want to see Anne
and Uncle Bruce's body in the water. I opened my eyes when I
recognized Peter's faint voice. "Anne thank goodness you are

saw Uncle Bruce. Out of the blue, the rope came back to me as
fast as a lighting bolt. I quickly caught it.

to hold it hard, but the pain was too much.
can do it!" I looked down and I saw three small figures waving
their arms. They were my uncle, Anne and Peter. My head was
spinning. I felt drowsy. I closed my eyes and went to the edge of
the ship. By this time Charlotte had sank even deeper into the
ocean. I took a deep breath and jumped off Charlotte. I began to
swing around. Lighting was striking all around. The rain poured
harder. The sharks leaped up from the ocean. One narrowly missed
my leg but was able to scratch it. My body felt hot as if I was
burning. What seemed terrifying was getting worse every second.
The waves grew bigger by the second and the wind was getting
stronger and stronger as if it was going at ten thousand
kilometres per minute.
Finally I was grabbed on the legs with a pair of soft, strong
gentle hands. I let go of the rope and fell into my uncle's
loving arms. My journey on the rope was short, but for me it
seemed like two hours. My dark brown eyes closed and I slept
peacefully in our lifeboat. But my nightmare was far from
