“Adventures of an IMP” Part VI: Look!

“…something on the horizon…”

All thought that the “something” (or “it”) would be a boat. Because “it” was so far away we were not taking any chances. Captain, Second Mate and Ship’s Boy went to gather fresh bamboo while First Mate, Able Seaman, The Crew and Ship’s Baby gathered enough fire wood to light up the whole island, almost. While all this was happening the thing, hoped to be a boat, came nearer. After some time Captain, Second Mate and Ship’s Boy came leaping over a sand dune and on to the beach where a HUGE fire was lit. On went the bamboo and we all ran over the sand dune to watch. BOOM, then a cloud of red, as red as, well, red. Back down on the beach we saw the “boat”, very clearly blow a great fountain of water high into the air, then with a flick of its tail swim away.
“A WHALE!,” we cried in excitement. And then came the sudden realisation that there was no boat and we were still on the island. It was then that Our Captain and First Mate realised how much they had wanted the whale to be a boat. Oh well, surely we would be found soon, in the meantime we had to wash down IMP.
