Eddie Harrison squinted through the darkness. All he could recall was the strange machine in his grandpa's attic. Eddie sprang up and checked his surroundings. He seemed to be on a ship of some kind! The large sail was emblazoned with 'Island Mist', the ship was made of ebony and waves lapped against the vessel. The air was scented with sea salt and beer. Suddenly, Eddie realised that they'd learnt about this in class. 'Island Mist' was a World War I vessel that sank beneath the waves in 1914! He had to get back home before it was too late!
