hears a quick preview. Everyone was sleeping out on lounges out in the open under the stars. Dad said “wakey, wakey sleepy heads”. I said “Dad its midnight, can’t it wait until morning?” Dad replied “we always do this on my favourite day of the week.” I said “its” ... “Bro said” its” ... sis said “its” … we all said at the same time “it’s Saturday nooooooo!” Dad asked us if we wanted to go on an adventure. Sis yelled angrily “WHERE ARE WE?” Dad remarked that we were going to the Island of Doom discovered by Willem Vlaming. I remarked that Willem Vlamming only discovered Rottnest and Penguin Island and wanted to know which one it was. we are looking for the monument of Willem Vlamming. It is on top of the tallest hill on the Island of Doom. Bro asked why can’t we do this at 12.00 am in the morning? Dad asked “Haven't you heard the legend of the golden power?” we all said no. Dad continued with the story “if you are at the monument on a blood moon you will get infinite wishes”.
When the boat pulled in to dock we could see a set of stairs above the horizon. We all slowly emerged across the creaky dock and up the stairs to find 3 paths slowly leading into the darkness.
