Diary Entry 4: The Haunting Hour

The journey was pretty easy, until it happened...

It was a hot day, and my crew was tired we had to work and work. Suddenly I heard Pedro muttering to Malachi. He was saying something about Lily getting for mutiny against me! I started getting ready but she just hurled at me, I started fighting her and in a moment she was on the deck with her hands up.

Finally our crew spotted a bird and a few sticks leaves and berries in the water! We knew there was land close so we never stopped looking around for land. Then a few days later Lily spotted land! She got 10,000 maravedis for spotting the land! Then the whole crew found land, and we headed towards the island. It felt so good to finally set my feet on dry land! We all stuck the flag for Spain.  Then we ate lots of fruit, and then I heard something in the trees. We pulled out our weapons and got ready. Then Natives came out one of them grabbed the blade of the sword and started bleeding. Then Pedro- our Interpreter- healed the native's wound and they gave him a necklace with a polished shark tooth on it! That's not fair!

Then on our way back I came down with very bad Typhus. I suffered and suffered until I couldn't go on any more. Then one day I didn't make it, I was in bed resting, and then...
I died. Everyone was sad to loose another crew mate, but they had to keep sailing.

Now I haunt the ship and my crew, actually there are two of us haunting the ship and our crew.
