the triangle

By Assheton Kennedy, year 9, Blanchelande School

The wind howled and the waves crashed against the rocks, my hovercraft zipped over the north Atlantic. ‘All system failure sir, our engines have blown. We have to do an emergency landing!’ We braced for impact as our ship crashed into the sea just east of Florida. The last thing I saw was our craft sinking under the surface of the sea.

I must have blacked out, because I found myself on an island with no recollection of what happened next, there was no one around me and no trace of any wreckage. There was something wrong about this island and I didn’t know what, but reluctantly I decided to take my chances and try and find shelter. After some time exploring, I realised that I was on a huge land mass with dense forests, towering mountains and mysterious caves. I found a good sheltered area and decided to set up camp for the night.

Next morning, I was awakened by a defining screech. I looked around alarmed and saw a flying beast with claws the size of my arms and razor sharp teeth. I had a funny feeling that I had seen these before, in my old colouring books as a child, it was a dragon! I climbed to the top of a hill to get a closer look but my heart sunk as I saw hundreds of ships and aircraft in the valley below me, and human remains scattered in numerous amounts.

Then it came to me I was left of the east of Florida, I was in the Bermuda triangle. It all made sense now, the system failure the crash landing. We must have passed into the Bermuda triangle. My fate was now sealed I was to never get of this treacherous island.
