The island

By Lauren Kennedy, year 9, Grammar School

I woke up to see a dog looming over my face, its tongue was like sandpaper on my cheek. The last thing I remembered was the plane, spiralling out of control towards the sea where the mountainous waves were crashing against each other, then everything went black.

There was a huge crowd of people gawping at me, everything was unfamiliar, I had no idea where I was but I’m guessing that I was washed up there after the crash.

“Hello! Can you hear me? What’s your name?” one of the people that found me asked.

“E...E...Ella, where am I?” I stuttered as someone lifted my back so that I was sitting up. I could see clearly everything now, I was on a beautiful white sand beach with turquoise sea and behind us there was an island, filled with flowers, palm tree and trees covered in fruit. In the middle, there were giant, snowy mountains with figures skillfully gliding down them. I didn’t know what was going on but it was magical, almost like it couldn’t be real.

As I stumbled to my feet, I stared in disbelief at the views around me; it was stunning. In the distance, I could see a smaller island with a crystal clear waterfall and the locals swimming in the pool below. I climbed up the steps that led to the beach and I could see wooden cabins surrounding the mountains, they were the kind you would find in a holiday resort.

There was several arms coming off of the outside of the island, each arm contained different things. I could see mini golf, a huge shopping centre, a zoo and the biggest natural pool that I had ever seen. I was drawn to the many smaller, adjoining islands and the other beaches surrounding me.
