The Priceless Gem
On our way to New York we just passed the pacific ocean we were feeling very emotional because 1 hour ago we said goodbye to our family back in Tokyo. Suddenly the big and fast plane had a broken engine and it started to catch fire. The plane was quickly falling to the ocean. We were going to crash. We crash landed heavily into the ocean. People were screaming. We both fell unconscious.
We woke up scared and worried but we saw four big turtles swimming towards us. We were confused but also happy. We didn’t know why. We don’t know how we knew but they were asking us to climb on their backs. We think they were helping us. They swam us to an island, a beautiful tropical island, and then left us. They swam away, not quickly but slowly. We were very confused.
Deep in the forest we came across some old looking tents. We entered into one of them, the closest one to us. We found an old but shiny treasure chest. After the day we had it looked like our luck was turning. We opened the chest and saw the priceless gem. There was nothing else in the chest only the diamond looking gem. We took the gem and ran. We saw some old boats, when we arrived at the beach and escaped in one.
We have never told this story before, you are the first. We couldn’t sell the gem. We still have it.
