Across the Wide Dark Sea
January 16, 1620
I can’t believe I’m on an adventure; I’m on the Mayflower because our old land got flooded. Today is January 23, 1620 it’s been a week since we left land. It’s cold outside. My family is Mikailah, my mom, my cousin Adrian, and my sister Maya. We are starving, we have to eat biscuits and cheese.
My cousin and I were playing and the sailor said, “a storm is coming.” The sailors were in a hurry to get the sails down. Everybody ran inside for shelter, me and my cousin were still playing outside and my mom called us to go inside. She said, “Hurry inside children.” We ran inside.
Then the storm grew larger and a man named Fernando fell overboard. The sailor couldn't find the life raft and Fernando was drowning, everyone was worried. The sailor said, "found it!” but the sailor tripped and I got the life raft and I threw it to Fernando. The sailor got up and helped me pull Fernando to safety. Fernando was cold and he was shivering.
Finally the storm ended, everyone was cheering. But Fernando was sick and died. One of the sailors said, “Land ahead.” We have to sleep now but the problem is: we have to sleep in a cramped place.
The next morning the sailor said “Land ho!” Some men went to see if the land was dangerous. After three hours the men came back and everyone got out of the Mayflower. Our mother washed the clothes we wore for TWO MONTHS! My cousin and I were swinging on vines.
