The sudden throb of the engines and a gentle rocking told them that the ship was underway. He struggled to free his hands but the tape cut even deeper into his wrists. 

“We have to get out and stop the ship somehow,” he said. “Axos mustn’t  get to the island before ‘Task Alpha’.”Suddenly her hands were cutting the tape that held him.  “How on earth did you get free?” he gasped.

“They didn’t take my sun glasses,” she said. “One of the arms conceals a sharp blade.” He grinned at her in the darkness. “They almost took my inhaler,” he laughed, “but I said I needed it.” “You’d never know it was a radio!” she said. “Now let’s get out of this stinking hold and sabotage the engines.” 

“And this will be useful,” he said. “A tube of super glue disguised as eye drops. It’s amazing how you can disable a ship by gluing up doors and hatches.  Come on!”

Come on!” As we zoomed down a flight of stairs escaping from either a fraction of life and death We had entered this mechanical room "It looks like the maintenance room Lenny!" Tracey said with a sigh of relief ,we saw the mechanisms linking the engines to the drive train,this would be the perfect place to stick the cogs together to stop the beast moving.

“Lets start building the cogs!”Lenny gasped.

 

They had to build the cogs before it is too late. They started building the cogs while others passed the pieces. They started gently working, while a devastating and tremendous storm occured. Now the work had to fasten up unfortunately all the people in the ship were exhausted. They navigated for 2 and a half hours and Lenny started feeling sick so the they brought him out and since he was sick he vomited. The vegetables and blood dashed out from his mouth in a  way we understood he had bronchitis. We got a blanket and putted on him gently he was coughing continuously without a break. They all knew they had the commitment to make the cogs and return to land,otherwise Lenny would die! They glanced at the cogs and had the presentiment that they would not survive because of the time at disposal. When the storm finished they didn’t see land from the top of the boat.They started to see something. That something had to be land!

 

Tracie shouted in excitement “Land!” they started going as fast as they could towards the island.That was the only chance.

“Come on, we’ve got to reach the command centre before they do” yelled Tracey.

“We… just… need to reach it.”

“Hurry up!” she shouted, running through the command centre while being shot at by a mob of angry sailors.

“I’m running as fast as I can!” he yelled,  attaching C4 bombs to the walls. “KABLAMO”

The window shattered on impact…

They run to the front of the ship but by the time they get there their friend has been captured, so they are forced to leave him behind.

They attach their grappling hooks to the mast of the ship and swing over to the island and search for a spot to camp. Lenny suggests they look for wood to make a fire and shelter.  Tracey starts building a camp while Lenny looks for leaves to rainproof the shelter.  After they finish building their camp they search for food. They stumble across another camp …

"Look, who are they?" Tracy exclaimed in a puzzled yet terrified manner. They stumbled worriedly to the entrance of the other camp and stared inside it. The people inside looked strange like they were too fixed to building the hut like they were in a trance. Then they noticed the man stood smiling and looking evil in the corner with some sort of laser in his hand and it was pointing at them.

Lenny immediately grabbed Tracy's hand and shouted "Run!. He is going to try and catch us and put us in the same trance as they have got. Quick duck into that bush, he will never find us!"

The laser was some sort of sight for a gun, probably an assault rifle.

"It looks like they have been hypnotised by the man, like that Derren Brown person on the TV." cried Lenny.

"I know!" replied Tracy, who was pulling out the radio-inhaler. "Command!" she nearly screamed into the radio. "We have a situation here!" But the inhaler only crackled and fizzed. "Damn, it's not working!"

As they started to run towards the bush, Lenny tripped over. Tracy stopped and tried to help him up, but he wouldn't let her, 'Run!' he cried.

As Tracy ran on, she turned just in time to see Lenny curl himself into a ball. Suddenly, a large ball of energy burst out of him. The man and the slaves are knocked to the ground. Tracy looks on in horror, and Lenny looked up, haggard, before collapsing.

She carried on running, not looking back, her face red and her eyes streaming. She stopped in a tropical jungle clearing by a pond when she felt she could not breathe if she ran anymore.
As Tracy fell to her knees at the muddy edge of the watering hole and tried to catch her breath, she glanced at her reflection in the swampy water and her reflection had changed! Her face was obviously distorted by the water, but there was something else. She seemed to have grown a beard?!
