About Nakatakos : Hi Im Nakatakos, a strong scorchio of Neopia. I have a hobby of writing diary every day. As I turned the pages of my diary, I came to a page on which I had recorded a near fatal incident. Memories of that fateful day came flooding back...
It was a cloudless and beautiful morning. I woke up feeling refreshed. After breakfast, I left to meet four of my pets friend at Krawk Island. We had planned to go out to sea in Cap'n Threeleg's Swashbuckling boat. Just before we got into the boat, we saw a black cloud in the sky.
"Hey, it's going to rain," One of my pet friend remarked. "Perhaps we shouldn't go out after all." We dismissed the thought, saying that nothing could stop us from gong out to sea that day.
We all got into the boat and I being the strongest in the group, offered to row it. Suddenly, the sky darkened and then a bolt of lighting flashed across the sky, followed by a crash of thunder. Then it began to rain. I tried to row back, but the water was so choppy that I had a hard time doing so. To make things worse, I saw a "shark" swimming in our direction! In the midst of our fright, I dropped the oars into the sea. I tried to retrieve them but they were too far away and I almost fell into the sea.
With a sudden splash of a wave, the "fin" of the "shark" overturned. What we thought was a "shark" turned out to be black-coloured styrofoam. I was certainly relieved. But not for long.
I turned around and saw my friends' ashen faces, What was wrong?
I counted,"One, two, three." Someone was missing! I was shocked, "The sea was so choppy, what if he drowns?" I was shattered by the thought. Then withoutwarning, the boat overturned and I was thrown overboard with my friends.
I tried to keep myself afloat but by that time, I had already swallowed three mouthfuls of water. I tried to swim towards my friends but the waves were too strong and the storm was at its worst. Then something made me shout for joy. It was Cap'n threeleg himself steering a boat towards us. After a few minutes which seems like hours, we were all safe in the boat. We were overwhelmed with relief that we all were safe...
From that day onwards I went to Cap'n Threelegs Swashbuckling Academy almost everyday to upgrade my skills...
