4: It was a cold, windy, September 12 night in the middle of Parrot Ocean. The pirates of Blue Ball, Ireland had just sailed off to look for brand new land. As they were on their way, the wind started getting as strong as a giant sea serpents blow of his breath. “Argh, the storm be coming strong!” said Captain Blue Beard as he walked out to the deck, “I think we best be locking the ship up for the night. Liam, get the locks and bolt em’!”
5: During the middle of the night they all started to feel the boat rock back and forth, it started getting stronger and stronger. Realizing they weren’t anchored, Matey Matt got up to check where they were. They had been knocked completely off course! “Ahoy Captain, get up! We been knocked off course!” The lazy captain had hurriedly gotten out of his bunk and ran outside. “What be all the racket?!” It seems someone must have undone the anchor and let them free, they had no idea where they were going.
6: “I think I might have an idea Captain!” Matey Matt was an excellent navigator, although he never got to use his skills because Captain Blue Beard Bob didn’t believe in knowing. He only believed in guessing. “Matt, how many times have I told you?! You know your ideas are never going to be used!” You’ve heard the old wives tale that pirates never cry? Well I guess Matey Matt was an exception to that. After Captain Blue Beard scolded him, he ran off to his bunk drowning in tears!
7: Being the nice son of the captain that he always is, Lemur Liam went off after him to try to calm him down. “Tonight, after he settles off into his bed and takes a rest, we will turn the ship the way you want it to go.” Liam suggested. “That’s a little sneaky, don’t you think? I don’t want to be thrown overboard!” Matt was scared, he’d been threatened before and wasn’t going to get nearly that close EVER again. “Look, Nappy gave me this idea and you KNOW he always gets away with things!” Liam was so positive that this plan was going to work, that he wouldn’t stop begging for Matt to say yes. “FINE! I’ll do it!” Matt was beginning to get extremely furious! He knew that if he didn’t say okay, Liam would keep bugging and bugging.
8: They went out and turned the boat around, but as they were doing so, Captain Blue Beard woke of and started yelling and yelling and yelling. Matt knew he was gonna get in trouble so he went to his bunk and never came out again.
