09. "Damn!" he said furiously.
10. To our relief, the wind gradually died away-but few hours later another storm blew up and our ship took an even greater battering[ˈbætərɪŋ].
11. But my relief turned to despair when I checked what I had. I began to panic, for I had nothing to eat and drink.
12. At last, desperately lonely, I forced myself to look for somewhere safe to spend the night. After a long search I climbed up a tall tree, hoping it would keep off any wild beasts.
13. I was so tired that I fell fast asleep. When I woke, it was broad daylight. The weather had cleared, the sun was streaming down and the sea was calm.
14. I was now starving. Food would be my first priority.
15. Grief almost overwhelmed me when I realized this.
16. Finally, and with great difficulty, I landed.
17. Taking one of my weapons with me, I struggled to the top--only to find I was looking down at an ocean which stretched as far as the eye could see.

25. Suddenly I looked up and saw a chunk of rock tumbling[ˈtʌmbl] down the hillside towards me. I threw myself to one side only just in time.
26. He slipped and tumbled down the stairs.
27. After a while I could feel no more shocks and I sat on the ground in a daze[deɪz]. Gradually the sky became overcast[ˌəʊvəˈkɑːst] and the wind began to rise. In less than half an hour the most dreadful[ˈdredfl] hurricane broke out.
28. The shore was flooded and trees were torn up by their roots.
29. For the next three days I lay desperately ill.
30. Yesterday I fell ill again and lay in bed all day in depair, neither eating nor drinking.
31. Then, for some reason, I remember the Bible I had saved from the ship. When I opened it, my eyes fell on the words, "Call on me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver you." Suddenly I seemed to see an answer.
32. That moment of triumph, when I brought the canoe through the canal to the creek, was the greatest joy I have ever felt in my life.
33. The thought of sailing so far from the island worried me.
34. I stood there as if I had been struck, not able to move.
35. I returned home terrified, glancing behind me time after time, seeing human shapes behind every tree.
36. I held the Bible close to my chest and waited for the dawn.
37. I stared inot the shallow cave and saw two broad, shiny eyes gazing steadily back at me. What creature could this be? I muttered a quick prayer. Then, gathering my courage, I picked up a blazing stick and rushed in--only to hear a sigh that put me into a cold sweat. For a moment I was too terrified to move, but I forced myself on and saw, lying on the gound, a huge he-goat, gasping for breath.
38. But after a while I knew I couldn't bear sitting here any longer without knowing what was going on. Cautiously, I clambered[ˈklæmbə(r)] to the top of the hill. There I perched[pɜːtʃ] behind a rock, trusting that this would shelter me from view.
39. Despite my desire to help any survivors-despite my terrible need to see a human face- I knew I was heading for danger again.
40. The noise seemed to fill them with fear: They fled to their boats and immediately began paddling furiously. Clearly they had never heard the sound of gunfire before.
41. He stood stock-still, staring down at his two fallen enemies, too frightened to move. When I signalled him to approach me, he trembled as if he was about to be killed.
42. After all these long years of loneliness, I am overjoyed to have a companion at last.
43. Friday kissed and hugged his father, crying, laughing, jumping about, dancing, singing and then crying again. Later he went to sit down beside his father and held his head. It was a deeply moving sight.
44. Amazed, I ran towards the shore, so eager that I didn't take any weapons as I normally would have done.
45. Immediately my heart began to pound. I felt both joy and confusion, for why should an English ship be in this part of the world.
46. I was overjoyed, hardly able to believe in my good fortune.
47. Exhausted, I lay down and slept soundly on the shore--until the sound of a gun made me start up, alarmed. Then I heard a voice calling.
