Once upon a time there was a rowing boat with two people. The moon shone down making the water glitter as they rowed towards a mysterious island.
They landed on the island feeling exhausted. They found a pot of gold but Spencer saw a ship. It looked like a pirate flag but Ellie was too busy waving.
Suddenly, the captain pounced on them. He ordered for them to be left alone in the cabin with all of the treasure. But Spencer refused so the captain made him walk the plank. It was creaky and wooden.
Some dolphins were waiting for them when they fell off. Luckily the dolphins were quicker than the ship. They got home safely. They thanked the dolphins and said goodbye, and then they lived happily ever after.
