Rank 9 Out of 10
I lay there crying silently. The fire started making weird kind of sounds. I looked at its direction and noticed something move at the far corner of the cave but it was too dark to tell what it was. I was instantly on my feet.
And then it happened. It happened so quickly but still in a slow motion. The cave I stood in disappeared into thin air. Just like that. Taking everything with it.
The sun shone brightly. The sea was sparkling as if someone poured glitter into it. It was so calm and peaceful. It felt heavenly. The sand I stood on was so soft and warm that I wanted to lie down and enjoy this beautiful weather. All my fears seemed to have gone and I felt a feeling of contentment settle over me. I turned and behind me was the forest, which I swear will never enter into but it felt as calm as the sea itself. I turned to look where I was and came to a stop when I noticed a small figure sitting at the far end of the sea. I ran toward it. I don’t know why but it seemed that my body had a mind of its own.
As I got nearer and nearer to the figure I perceived that it was a girl. No not just a girl, a very beautiful girl. She had wavy light brown hair and twinkling topaz coloured eyes. This kind of reminded me of the light we saw in the forest, twinkling between the trees but it can’t be her. Of course not.
“Hey! Who are you?” I asked as I sat beside her.

She didn’t move an inch and kept staring at the sea.
“Hi, I am Sarah. Is it ok if I ask your name” I asked again.
My question seemed to shock her and she turned her face to glare at me. Her eyes lost their shine. She kept on glaring until I stood up and turned to go.
“Mia. Mia Whaley” her voice was as soft as a child’s but she looked just my age.
I came and sat beside her once again. She was now staring at the sea.
“Hi, I am Sarah” I said again.
 “I know” she said “I was the one who saved you from those…those…beasts”
I stared at her in disbelief. So she was the one to flash that light after all. I wanted to ask her how? Why? But the question just seemed to get stuck in my throat. Instead I just said “Oh”
“So do you live here?” I asked.
“I used to” she replied gazing at her hands.
“‘used to’ what do you mean?” I asked curious.
“Before this place started falling apart” she had no tone in her voice and her face was expressionless “Before they started eating each other just because of that one accident” she looked at me for a brief second and realized that I was defiantly confused but she didn’t say anything.
“What accident?” I asked.
“Four years ago a plane full of 800 passengers crashed on this island. About 300 survived and they started living on this island but there was a huge problem we were facing. There was not enough food” she said without any humour.
“When you say we, do you mean that you were one of the passengers?” I asked too interested in her tale.
“Yes” she replied.
“So what was that accident you were talking about?” I asked.
“A young man named Carter Thelon accidently fell into the huge fire we would have built for signalling and when they finally rescued him, he was dead till then. That’s when hunger flickered into their eyes and they fought like animals over him because human meat is the most delicious. They could not resist their hunger so they started eating each other” she paused and I gulped as I finally caught hold of her words.”Even my uncle tried to kill me” she continued “but I didn’t wanted to die such a horrible death. I tried to run away but there was no place to go. No place to hide. There were about 60 of them left and I was so scared when they came after me that…that I jumped off the cliff” she paused “There was no other option”
I looked at her so carefully not realizing that she was…dead. She can’t be. Then how come I can see her. No….no, if this was heaven then I m..m.. must be DEAD TOO.
She suddenly stood up and looked at the beautiful forest which lay behind us. Her mouth opened wide and she started screaming so loudly as if someone was trying to kill her. I covered my ears and fell to the ground.
“Stop it. Please stop it” I shouted but my yells were drained by her screams.
“They are coming. They are coming. They are coming…” she kept on repeating when she stopped screaming. As I looked at her I saw the same face I saw in my dream on my first day on this island.
“Who is coming?” James voice was so far away.
I tried to move my lips but I couldn’t.
“Sarah! Wake up” James said shaking me half frightened himself.
“Wha….?” I sat up rubbing my head after realizing that it was just a dream after all.
 “Are you alright? Why were you screaming?” he asked.
“I was speaking in my sleep?” I asked ignoring his questions.
“Screaming actually. And what did you meant by ‘they are coming’?” he asked.
And then I remembered everything I saw and heard in my dream.
“Ouch, Sarah stop it!” James said. I was so scared that I had dug my finger nails into his hand I was holding.
“I am so sorry. Listen we have to leave this island this very moment. I...I think they know where we are and they are coming this way” and he immediately understood and to my surprise he didn’t questioned or argued.
We started to work on our raft as quickly and quietly as we could. And finally we were finished. We took it, well actually dragged it, outside to test it on the water. I looked up in the sky and it was almost dawn.
It worked perfectly even though it was not that big but it was enough for two. I stayed put with the raft looking everywhere for the sign of those monsters while James went into the cave to get out tinned food.
I was jumping up and down with impatience when he came back with five tins.
“Hurry” I kept on saying.
“Hey I only have two hands” he said as he went back to get more of the food.
I stood there waiting for him to come out again. I didn’t notice anything strange. No howls. No screams. But it still felt unsafe. As he came out of the cave with our last pack of food I happened to notice something standing on top of the cave ready to pounce on him.
“James look out” I screamed at the top of my lungs. He looked up instantly, dropped the tins and started running towards me. Behind him was the wave of monsters. I quickly jumped into the water and started pulling the raft into the sea as fast as I could and when the water was up to my neck I climbed aboard and looked out for James.
He ran but the one behind him was much faster than him and caught hold of him by his hand. James kicked and punched while I stared, helpless. I realized that I was not breathing.
“James” I screamed. He looked at me and for the last time he punched the thing on its face with all his might and ran towards the sea.
“Hurry James they are right behind you” I yelled, crying. He swam and I gave him my hand for support. He too climbed aboard. But it wasn’t over; they were still following us even when the water had reached up to their necks.
We started to row as fast as we could. We kept on rowing until we could no longer see them and the island soon started to shrink.
I looked at James and he looked at me, we are safe is all we could read into each other eyes. The sun was shining brightly just like in my dream.
We will soon be home; I thought…….we will, right?

Ayesha To all u Vshine frnds out there I want to confess something!! You guyz know that Picture of 2 chinese girls I uploaded and Then I said it was me and Deejah? Well, those girls weren't us. They were just unknown girls from the Net. I lied because when Ayesha Lakho asked to upload a picture of mine and Dejeah's pictures, My mom didn't allow me to do that, so I uploaded A fake picture of 2 Chinese girls from the Net. My new profile picture is of the REAL me and Deejah. To my Vshine friends, I hope you willl 4give me for lying:) Ayesha
