Chapter 11: Out at sea.

kraken Rumor said that out at sea there lived giant monsters, squid like, nicknamed krakens. These monsters would swallow a whole ship and the sailors onboard in one gulp. Our eldest had built a ship and we set sails to check out if these stories are in fact true. We sailed for a lot of miles, far from our home town and other land. It was silent in this part of the waters and we could hear the wind whistling through the sails. For some time we were going to give up and turn back but then, like a thunderstorm, something emerged from the water.

This was no normal wave; this was in fact a tsunami. Our ship yawed and rolled but then found it's position again. Everyone rushed to the sides and sure enough there was this monster! It had long tentacles and a slimy jelly-like body. Its eyes were protruding above his head like a giant mollusc.. infact it was a giant calamari.

kraken sea monster With great ability, our captain manoeuvered the ship out of peril, and then we flanked the sea monster. At that same time order was given to open fire and the cannons did their job. Most of our gunners hit the target and the kraken ate a number of shots. It quickly went underwater again but it was far from defeated. The kraken was preparing for its second assault but we were more than prepared for every eventuality. We had large hammers to repair the ship and no matter how many assaults we took, the kraken died at the end! This monster gave us even more gold pieces and other good stuff. Glad with the hunt, we returned to safe port back to Hammerdale.

Our family was achieving a lot and we were becoming a small, but epic community.
