Rain rolled of the windshield and down the windows of the car. I got out of the car and said good bye to my mom and my little sister. I got my luggage out of the trunk an ran in to the airport. I Handed the women my ticket and boarded the plane. I searched for my seat , row 26 seat C. I found my seat and sat down, next to me was a young boy about seven and his mother. I was on my way to Florida to visit my dad, he and my mom split up and he moved to Florida. I visit him every summer and on school vacations. My sister Sara doesn't go because she is only four but next year she is going to come with me. My names Jack and I'm sixteen, I have dark brown hair and blue eyes. I have been going to Florida for seven years now so I used to flying alone. My dad will be waiting at the airport for me. The plane took off and we were now in the air. I took out my I Pod and put the head phones in my ears. After an hour it started to get a little bumpy. I took out my head phones and put my I Pod back in my pocket. I looked out the window and the sky was dark even though it was mid after noon. There was a big bang against the plane and we started to go down. Everyone started to panic. I tightly held the arm rest. The plane tilted side ways and out the window I saw water. I heard screams from the back of the plane, I turned around and there was a large whole on the back of the plane. We hit the water like a rock.
The back of the plane started to fill up with water as the plane slowly sank to under water. People rose from there seats and ran to the front of the plane. I got up and ran to the front, people were pushing. A man ran in to men and I fell, hitting my head on the armrest of a chair. The water was now touching my feet. I stood up and blood was running down my face. The water now was up to my knees and the water was still rising. Soon we would be under water, and we would all be trapped in here. I pushed past people to get out of the water. I looked out the window and the plane was completely under water. A rush of water came into the plane. People screamed and pushed to the front of the plane. The water was at my shoulders and it was freezing. I remembered the flight attendant saying there were life jackets under the seats . I held my breath and went under water, I swam down to the bottom of a seat. The saltwater burned my cut. I grabbed the life jacket and swam back up. The water was up to my neck. Everyone started to get life jackets. I put it on and pulled the string, the jacket blew up and I started to float. My head was almost touching the ceiling. I needed to get out of the plane before the water rose to the top. I tried kicking out a window but it didn't work. I saw an emergency door on the side of the plane. I tried swimming down to it but the life jacket wouldn't allow me. I took it off and swam down to the door. I lifted the latch and pushed but I wasn't strong enough. I man came toward me and helped push the door open. When it opened water rushed in and was pulling me upward. I was running out of breath. I grabbed the outside of the plane and pulled my self out. I swam to the surface. More people started to swim out. The sky was black and rain fell hard so hard it hurt. No land was in sight. I floated on my back trying to stay above water. Lots of people were around me holding on to each other to stay afloat. In the distance I saw something yellow, maybe it was a life jacket. I swam over to it and it was a life jacket. I put it on and laid on my back. I shut my eyes.
I opened my eyes the sun was shining and I was on sand. I jumped up and looked around I was on an island. I must have fallen asleep. It must be the next day, I bet my dad is worried. I remembered my cell phone was in my pocket, I took it out and water poured from it. What was I going to do, I have no cell phone, I'm alone with out any adults and I have no clue where I am. I wonder what happened to the other people on the plane. My stomach growled, I haven't eaten since yesterday on the plane. I walked into the forest on the beach. I could here birds chirping and the trees seemed to go on for miles. I was in search for anything I could eat. At the top of one of the trees were monkeys. Where there are monkeys there must be bananas. I started to climb the tree and the branches seemed to get farther apart making it hard to climb. I got tired and sat on one of the branches. The monkeys came down and stared at me with their dumb faces. They probably have never seen anything like me before. I saw some bananas a little further up. I climbed further up until I could reach them. I grabbed one and ate it. A monkey handed me one, I took it and laughed. I grabbed a bunch of bananas and climbed back down the tree. I walked back on the beach, the sun was shining like a summer day and the water was a blueish green color. The air smelled like salt water and the snad was warm agiast my bare feet. I put the bananas up against a tree. I looked at my watch, surprisingly it still worked. It was 3:26 and it was going to get dark soon. I got worried that I would never get rescued and never see my family again. I had to build a shelter.
I entered the forest to look for anything to build a shelter with. I knocked over some small trees and carried them one by one back to the beach. I saw something wash up on the beach. I ran down to the water to see what it was. It was a bag, It had a red cross on it. I opened it and it had medical things in it, it mush be a first aid kit. I sat on the warm sand and looked through the bag. There were band aids, a small pocket knife, tape, scissors, a magnified glass and some pills. I took the knife and put it in my pocket and but the bag next to the bananas. I got some vines from the forest to tie the logs together. I laid the logs up against a tree and used the vine to tie them together. The sun was hot and I was sweating. I was thirsty too, I walked back into the forest to find water. After ten minuets I heard running water. It was a lot cooler in the forest than on the beach. I came to a small river. I cupped my hands together and filled them with water, I drank the water and it was cold. I took off my sneakers and put my feet in. The felling of cold water running down my feet felt great. I needed to bring water back to the beach. I ran back to the beach and grabbed the medical bag. I searched through it. I dumped the pills into the bag and took the bottle to the river. I filled it up and brought it back. My watch said 6:30 and it was getting dark.
I was cold now and the sun was almost covered by clouds. I took the left over logs and put them in a pile. I held the magnified glass and held it to the sun and pointed it at the logs. Smoke came from the logs and then a small fire started. I sat with my hands out to keep warm. I had shorts and a T-shirt on so I was cold. I Lay under the shelter and closed my eyes.
I woke up to the sound of my stomach growling. I looked at my watch and I was 6:55. I was morning and the fire was out. I lite another fire a ate some bananas. I saw some fish leap out of the water. Maybe I could catch some to eat. I got a stick and made a point on it with the knife. I went into the ocean, fish were swimming all around me. I took the stick a tried to stab a fish but the stick went into the sand instead. I kept on trying and each time I got closer and closer. Walked farther out and I stepped on something sharp. I ran out of the water and sat down. I looked down at my left foot and it started to bleed. I hopped over to the medicine bag and got a large band aid and put it on my foot, I took some of the tape and wrapped it around my foot so the band aid wouldn't fall off. I walked back into the water and tried to catch a fish. After fifteen minuets I caught one. It was small but it was better than nothing. I held the stick with the fish on it over the fire. It tasted like saltwater but I was hungry.
A week and four days had gone by. I really need to take a shower. It was night time and the sky was filled with stars and the moon was almost full. I had become an expert at catching fish and had a pile of them next to the bunch of bananas. I took out my cell phone and turned it on. To my surprise it worked, it must have dried. I had no service, It started to walk around the beach but still no service. I walked into the forest and it was sort of scary at night. I saw a hill and I went up, at the top was a view of the beach. I held my phone in the air. I had service, I quickly dialed dads number. "Hello" "Dad, its me Jack!",I shouted into the phone. "The plane crashed and I'm trapped on an island". There was no reply. I looked at my phone and the battery was dead. I ran back to the beach. I laid under the shelter and went to sleep.
I woke to the sound of voices. They sounded like they were coming from the other side of the mountain. I got up and walked into the forest, after a half an hour I made it to the other side. The voices had gotten louder. I walked out on to the beach and there people, hundreds of them. I walked out farther and saw a sign that read Public Beach. I saw a street and cars. I walked up to a a man and asked him what state this was. "Florida", the man said. I had to call dad and tell him to come and get me. I walked up to the side walk to a pay phone. I needed a quarter. "Excuse me young man do you need help" a women said. "Uh, yeah I need a quarter to call my dad to come get me." She handed me a quarter. "Thanks", I said. I inserted the quarter and dialed dads number. "Hello", ''Dad come get me i'm at the public beach". "Who is this"he said confused. "Jack". "What are you doing there" "Its a long story i'll tell you when you get here.
After ten minuets dads car pulled up. I got in. "What happened to you and when did you get here". I told my dad the whole story and how I thought I was stranded on an island and had to hunt for my own food. I also called my mom to tell her that I was okay and I'm with dad now. When next year came I was nervous about flying but I was seventeen and Sara was with me. I never told her the story because I didn't want her to worry.

I slowly walked up the front steps and rang the door bell. "Is Matt home" "No, he's down the street playing foot ball". His mom said. I walked back down the stairs and down the newly paved drive way. The smell of tar was in the air and the bottom of my shoes turned black as I continued to walk. I have known Matt for a while now. I was fourteen and going to be fifteen in a few month and Matt was was thirteen. I guess you could say I liked him. He had Brown Hair and Brown eyes like me. We enjoyed the same things. I wasn't sure if he liked me and I always wanted to find out. I headed up the street to my house when I spotted something shinny on the ground. I picked it up and looked at it. It was and ordinary rock but something was different about it. Who cares it's just a rock, I said to my self. I through it in to the woods near by. Boom! An explosion came from where I through the rock. The rock must have some how exploded. I had to find out what happened. "What are you doing" I heard a voice from behind say. I turned around and Matt was standing there. "Hi", I said. "Hi", he said back. "I found a rock on the ground and I through it in the woods and it exploded.", I said. "Yeah right", Matt said walking away. "Come with me and I'll show you."
We both entered the woods and headed to the spot where I through the rock. Neither of us spoke, we where both shy around each other. Up ahead was a giant hole. "This must be it'', I said. We looked down the hole and it seemed to go on for ever. I leaned forward to see better when I fell. Matt grabbed my shirt and he started to slide forward. He fell forward and we both fell toward the bottom of the hole.
I awoke in a strange place. I was laying on the ground next to Matt. We both got up and looked around. We were in a forest and no people were in sight, just small animals like birds and squirrels. All over the ground were covered with what looked like the rock that exploded. I picked one up and through it. In the spot where I through it it started to rain, but only in one spot. "What did you do", Matt said. "I through a rock because it looked like the the one I through before." "Maybe if we find the right one it will bring us back." Matt said. "I don't remember what it looked like" I said. "Lets just throw them until we find the right one." We began to pick up rocks and throw them. The first one I though turn the grass into flowers. The one Matt through Made it snow in one area. "Can I help you", a voice said. "Who's there"I shouted. A man appered out of nowhere. He was about three feet tall with black hair and a long black beard. "Where looking for a rock that explodes when you throw it." "Those ones are hard to find", the man said. "We need to get back home", Matt said. "Ok, I'll help you", the man said. "First you need to hike up that mountain and ask the women in the small house up there, she will tell you what to do next"
Matt and I walked up the steap mountian to the top. At the top was a small house the size of a shed. Matt knocked on the door. A women not much taller than me came to the door. "We need help finding a rock",I said. "What kind of rock" the women said. "One that explodes when you throw it", matt said. "I through my last one out", she said. "You can check at the bottom of the river down the hill, thats where I put it."
We walked down the small hill near her house and there was a river. The current was strong and I could see a rock at the bottom of river. "How are we going to get it", I said "The waters not deep we can walk in and get it." Matt rolled up his jeans and took of his socks and sneakers and walked in to the river. "It's cold" he shouted. He reached down and grbbed the rock. "I got it", he shouted. The current got stronger, matt slipped. the current started to take him farther down the river. I took of me shoes and ran to the river. I jumped in to the freezing water. I swam toward him and grabbed his hand. Rocks were ahead and we tried to swim back but the current was to strong. Matt raised the rock and through it below us. Boom! The groud below us opened and we got suck under the water.
I opened my eyes and I was standing on Matts front stair Just like before. I looked around for Matt. I ran in to the street waiting for him to come down the hill on his bike like before. He did. He got off his bike and walked over to me. "That was weird", he said. "It was like nothing ever happened, were back to were we where before you found the rock. "I'm going to go home now", I said. "Can I walk with you", Matt said. "Sure" He took my hand and we walked to my house talking about the exploding rock.

Jason and Lisa entered the restaurant holding hands." Nice place" Lisa said. "Table for two," Jason said to the hostess. "Right this way". Jason pulled out the chair and pushed it back in as Lisa sat down. They took the menus and looked at them. The waiter came over, "I'm Phil, I'll be you sever tonight, can I start you off with a drink". " I'll have some of your red wine", Jason said. "Make that two", said Lisa. "Are you ready to order," Phil said. "Yeah, we will both have the Tuna steak". Jason moved his hand toward Lisa's. Lisa put her hand and on his hand. "I can't believe we have been dating for a year now", Lisa said. "I know it's wonderful", Jason said with a smile. Jason's cell phone started to ring and he answered it.
"Hello", he said. "Hold on" he said to Lisa as he got up and walked out side. The waiter brought over the tuna steak. Lisa waited for Jason because it would be the polite thing to do. ''Sorry'' Jason said as he sat back at the table. "Who was that", Lisa said. "Uh no one, just a friend. They both started to eat the tuna steak. Jason's phone rang again. He answered it and stood up. "You can take your call at the table" Lisa said. Jason sat down an talked quietly into the phone. Lisa listened to him talk. "I can't" he mumbled into the phone. " a friend is coming over tonight." " How about tomorrow" Jason said with a smile on his face. He hung up the phone and continued to eat. "Who's coming over tonight?'' said Lisa. "You" "So I'm just a friend to you." Lisa said raising her voice. "no your more than a friend I don't know why I said that. "Who were you talking to" "The same person as last time." Jason softly said.
Lisa finished the tuna steak and so did Jason. 'When am I going to meet him. "You mean her". Jason mumbled. "Oh so its a her now" she shouted. "Stop shouting" Jason said trying to calm her down. "Who is she and why is she coming over to your house. "She is an old friend and we have some things to catch up on." "Why did you say I was just a friend" "She doesn't know that we are dating." "Why don't you tell her'' Lisa said. "I will "He said. Jason's phone rang again. Lisa reached for it and answered it. "Hello" no one was there so she hung up. "Who was it" Jason asked. "They hung up" Lisa said. "Did you like the tuna" Jason said. ''Not anymore". "You ate it all though" "I did like it but not anymore." Lisa replied. "What about you" Lisa said. " Yes, but its not my favorite, I like other foods too". "Sometime I need a break from my favorite food and try something new", Jason said. "So Jason how many favorite foods do you have." I have two favorite foods, one is tuna steak and you don't need to know about the other one. They looked way from each other and finished their wine. Tears started to drip from Lisa's face. "What's wrong", Jason said in a caring way. "Nothing I got something in my eye. Jason moved toward her to kiss her when his phone rang.
He answered it. "Hi honey, I mean hi." Lisa got up to use the bathroom. Jason was still talking when she came back and she stood behind him to listen. Jason didn't realize she was behind him. "I can't wait for the wedding, okay see you later, love you bye." Jason said to the girl on the phone. Lisa sat down. "So Jason why are you going to a wedding". "You heard that", Jason said starting to sweat. "Yes I heard the whole thing. "It's my sisters wedding and I was talking to her about it." "You don't have a sister" Lisa said confused. "Yeah I do, her names uh, Susan. "Why haven't you told me about her". "She lives in Utah". "Does you "friend" know about her.'' "Yes she does" "So you tell her but you don't tell your girlfriend". "Yeah, is that a issue". "Maybe it is."
Lisa got up and walked back to the bathroom. Jason sat anxious because he was going to ask Lisa a very important question. Lisa came back and sat with a smile. "I sorry I acted that way, I'm over it now". Jason reached in to his pocket and pulled out a box. He opened it and a ring sat in the box. "Lisa, will you marry me".

I sat on my bed in my room watching TV. My room is very dull, the walls were a light blue color and there were no pictures or posters on my walls. My mom does not like holes in the walls. My rug was an ugly brown color but you couldn't see it with the clutter of clothes on the floor. My room was an average sized room with an average sized closet. I had one dresser on the left wall. My bed was against the front wall and the TV was on the back wall. Near my bed was a desk with a stack of magazines on it. "Megan, get down hear", That was my mom. I bolted down the wooded stairs and into the kitchen. "Your father and I are going out for the night and Bryan will be in charge", she said. I hated when my older brother was in charge he would always boss me around and tell me what to do. I was thirteen and he was sixteen. I ran to my room and continued to watch TV. Bryan was in his room talking on the phone, like he does every night. An hour went by and I was bored. I went down stairs and went out the front door. I sat alone on the front stairs and stared up at the stars. The were so bright and lit up the dark sky. The moon was half full and bats were flying around. I heard voices coming from in the house . I ran up to Bryan's room. I entered with out knocking and he was gone. "Bryan" I yelled. There was know answer.
I ran down the stairs nearly falling and shouted his name. I searched every room and I couldn't find him. I got a flash light and went out side. His car was in the drive way so he couldn't have left. I wondered where the voices came from. I walked around the house and no sign of Bryan. I went in side and sat in the living room and turned on the TV and just sat there waiting. I looked at the clock, it was 9:30 and i was getting worried. Just then I heard a frightening scream. It was coming framing the basement. I then heard foot steps coming up the stairs. I ran to the door and locked it then I ran back to the living room. I searched for the phone to call mom and dad and I couldn't find it. I searched every room and all of the phones were un plugged and missing. I was really getting scared. Then the power went off. I grabbed my flash light and turned it on, I was going to find out what was down stairs. I opened the door and slowly walked down the stairs. There was an awful odor down here. I shined my light around and my eye caught something. I walked to the object on the ground and as I got closer it started to look more like a person. I let out a gasp, Bryan was laying on the ground. I shined my light on him and he was covered with what looked like blood. Bryan lay there with his eyes open, he was dead. I turned to see a black figure run by and go up the stairs. I ran up the stair and tried to open the door but it was locked. I was trapped down here alone. I walked to the door that lead to the garage and I walked out. I then walked out the door that lead out side. I headed toward the front door. I tripped and my flash light smashed. It was pitch black out here. The front door was locked. I went to one of the side windows and opened it. Who ever was trying to lock me out forgot about the window. I pulled my self though the window and I was in the living room. The room was dark and I had to rely on my other senses because I can see. I put my hand out in front of me. Bang, I banged into the kitchen table. Now they know I'm in hear. I stood in the middle of the kitchen looking around at the darkness. The house became silent and the only sound I could hear was the sound of my self breathing. The sound of some one breathing got louder. I realized it was not me. I got a shiver when some one blew on my neck. I turned to a hooded figure. I screamed a ran, I couldn't see anything but I kept running. I turned to see if he was still chasing me, he was behind me with a rope. I turned and I ran right in to a wall.
I woke up in a room I did not recognize. My head was pounding and blood was dripping from my forehead. I realized I was in Bryans room. I tried to get up but couldn't because my arms were tied to the arm rests of a chair. The only light was the light coming from the moon, which I could see through the window on the left wall. It was so silent it was as if someone put the world on mute. I had to get out of hear if I wanted to find out who was in my house. I glanced my watch and it was 11:45 and mom and dad would be home soon. I used all of of my strength to stand up. I walked over to the glass case on the wall that held Bryans knives that he had. I guess you could say he collects them. I used the back of the chair to smash the glass. I picked up the biggest one with my mouth and sat back down. I used the knife to cut the rope. Yes, I was free. I took the knife with me for protection. I opened the door and walked down the dark hallway. The lights were still out. My head stopped bleeding, but my shirt was covered in blood. It was like someone took a paint brush and painted my shirt red.
The lights started to flicker on and off. It was like lighting in a thunder storm. I began to get suspicious when I looked out the window and saw the street lights on. I asked my self if the power is out then why are the street lights on. The lights stop flickering. I slowly walked down the stair with the knife in my hand ready to take on any one. I entered the kitchen and rummaged through the draws to find a flashlight. All I could find was a small candle. I lite it with the match laying next to it. The aroma of apples came from the candle. Tears dripped from my eyes as I remembered that Bryan had died. I quickly wipped my eyes.
A light came from the basement and was getting near. I froze with fear and tried to be brave. The door knob wiggled back and forth as the door opened. The hooded figure form before entered the kitchen. I couldn't see his face. He was tall and sort of chubby. He wore faded jeans and had on nike sneakers. He walked toward me and I Held up the knife. He tried to grabb it form me, he missed. I quickly moved the knofe toward his face, he reached out his hand to grabb it and grabbed the blade. Ahhhhhhh. He let out a cry as he fell to the ground. The knife was inbeded in his hand. He lay there. His hood fell of. he had jet black hair and cold blue eyes. He quickly got up putting the hood back on. He pulled the knife from his hand and through it on the ground. I saw his face again and reconized it. "Joey", I said. "what are you doing here. He took of his hood. "Yah, it's me", he said softly. Joey was Bryan's friend. "Did you kill Bryan?", I asked. "Bryans not dead", he said with a smirk on his face. The basement door opened and Bryan entered. "Bryan" I yelled as I ran ovet to hug him. "We planed this whole thing" he said. "Why would you do something like that, I was scared, I shouted with anger. The power came on.
I never told my mom and dad what happened. I didn't want Bryan to get in trouble, and he told me if I told he would pull an even worse prank.
