It was a cold and stormy night in the prison where I was held captive awaiting my death sentence There were no bars nothing but a small thick window placed in the cell door overlapped with wire The cells dimensions were about six foot by twelve foot and a short cement wall that stood between the throne and the rest of the small room Some of the prisoners were short some tall some huge The night went smooth for the most part Over a period of hours they removed every prisoner except two others and me I sat on the ground with my arms crossed leaning back against the cold wall as I pondered the evenings events that was about to take place As I closed my eyes and took in a deep breath I suddenly heard the shingling of the guards keys To my astonishment I saw my dearest friends Alonso Juan and Pedro who came to rescue me from prison But little did I know what was about to transpire I was about to set sail on a voyage with Christopher Columbus on an awe-inspiring expedition that would be a milestone that would be recorded throughout history I went aboard with only the clothes I owned and slept anywhere that I found was dry and out of the sun I drank wine ate sea biscuits and salted meat There were many obstacles that lay ahead since I did not know where I was going The days stretched desperately to weeks and months with no sign of land I became more and more frightened because Columbus wouldnt turn back not with all the weeping begging and treats because he had planned this and it was his lifes work There was no way that he would turn back I realised along with the crew members that we couldnt throw him overboard because he was the only man who knew the way back home
