Chapter 15

 

I started going to the ship every day. I brought back many useful tools and things. The third time, I brought as many ropes and sails as I could. Some days after, I made another happy discovery. I found more bread, rum, sugar and some flour on the ship. I brought all of this to the beach.

I made another raft the next day and loaded it with pieces of iron and cables. Sadly, it overturned on the way back. I lost the iron parts, but I found some of the cables later.

It was my thirteenth day on the island. The most recent visit to the ship was my eleventh. The twelfth time, I discovered a drawer full of razors, scissors, knives and forks. There were also some coins from Europe and Brazil there. Money was not useful, but I still took it.

One day, the sky started to get dark. The clouds were getting bigger and the wind was getting stronger. I visited the ship but I didn’t make a raft on that day because a storm was coming – rafts can be broken easily. I swam back to the shore. The wind was really strong that night. Luckily, I was safe inside my little tent.
The ship was gone the next morning.
