Jack watched the waves crashing over the sea wall.

“Never seen anything like it,” his dad said. “That one’s as high as two houses, look.” 

The water bounced on to the promenade and then raced back to the sand below only to be met by another wave. 

Dad tapped him on the shoulder. “Come on. Best get back home.  Your Ma’ll have something hot ready for us.”  

Jack didn’t want to go in. Not just yet. There was something really exciting about seeing the power of the sea like that. 

Another wave came over the railing and the spray soaked his coat.  The wind took his breath away. The rain stung his cheeks. A sudden gust made him almost fall over.

Then the street lights went out. For a few seconds he could see nothing and now it was a bit scary if he was honest.

His dad grabbed him. “It’s all right. I’ve got you.”

Jack’s eyes got used to the dark and he could still make out the sea, the foam glistening in the moonlight.

His dad was pulling him up the street away from the promenade. Yes, he’d be glad to get indoors after all. He wondered whether the electricity would be out at home as well.

It was just then that they heard an almighty crash and the ground beneath them began to shake.

His dad dragged him down the street swiftly, trying to get him home as soon as possible. “What’s going on?” asked Jack. His dad replied, “Just run! When we get home, I’ll explain it.” Jack said, “Okay, let’s go!” They ran down the street followed by a few neighbours, everyone was panicking and running around. The street light flickered back on and everything got real still, all of a sudden there was a big boom. Jack looked down the street and saw a disturbing shadow in the distance. Jack and his dad walked cautiously forward to get a closer look and the shadow turned around into the street light. “Oh my!” screamed Jack.

An enormous wave was following them up the street, half way up the houses, flooding the street. Although they were sprinting, the wave was gaining on them. Jacks dad turned around and saw the great white Goblin shark his mouth opened as he was about to eat them in one big gulp one by one.No chewing involved.Just one big gulp.This is where the adventure began.But they were still alive.What will happen next...

But as if they were spider man, they jumped up onto a thatch roof and ran; they ran for their lives… 

Then they came face to face with a cute baby squid but they sprinted straight past it. As the shark approached the baby squid, the baby squid swallowed him whole. Curiously, the baby squid took them to the ship wreck of Titanic …

Splash! Jack and dad landed in the water.
"Argh! I can't breathe!" Spluttered jack, flailing in the water. His Dad swam over expertly to hold him up.
"It's okay. I'll give you two breathing bubbles, you'll be fine!" The bubbles foamed out of his nose in a giggle and suddenly father and son were breathing perfectly.

"Thanks!" Dad replied, shocked. "Where are we though?" He thought it was not the right time to ask how a baby squid was even talking... They swam to a piece of ice and shivered like penguins. The squid excitedly wiggled itself down deep into the ocean. Before long, as their hearts were almost frozen, the dove back into the water to investigate.
As they swam around the Titanic they found floating skeletons.What was that noise?Jack asked.Nervously,they walked forward.There was one door in front of them they went through the door.There was a magician. He froze time then he reversed the Titanic.What happened next?

There is an enormous seethe sound as the water is forced out of the ship. There is a loud sputter as waves back-pedal, the Titanic rises and it’s joints begin to reform. As Jack looked at his dad, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. From the two segments of the shipwreck, time is starting to reverse. “WOW!” Jack muttered. Out of the blue the skeletons from the water began to rise and turn into humans again. Suddenly the ocean starts to shake as Jack and dad are spinning through time, going back through history.

As they spin they glimpse the magician and the baby squid. Jack wondered, what the wave was earlier? What the storm was and more importantly why the magician and the squid were mysteriously laughing?

Jack and his dad had headaches. Bad headaches, from the time travel. They looked around, and they were still on the SS Titanic. They weren't in the same place though, it was at a dock somewhere. The magician and the baby squid were right in front of them. The baby squid was looking a bit queasy, and then he vomited the great white goblin shark onto the deck. It landed near the rail, flopping around on the deck. "Quick, get off if you value your lives!" shouted the magician, and just as Jack and his dad jumped onto the dock, Jack shouted, "Wait, what's your name?" "Squidamybob!"the squid shouted, as Jack and his dad landed safely back in their own time. "Wait, how did we get back here? We were on the dock just a moment ago, now we're back here." Suddenly, the magician's voice boomed the words, "Do not worry, I have sent you back to your own time. Goodbye!" "Ho......." Jack started, but the magician was gone. Jack and his dad walked back home together, and decided never to go outside in the bad weather again.

To this day, Jack is still wondering how the squid was talking and how the magician got them back home.
