Untold stories (The day everything began)

Uncle Axel was telling stories about unknown islands that had mutations
These mutations were considered blasphemies because they either had 10 fingers and 2 thumbs or 12 toes. They were humans that had been genetically mutated with such things that were considered blasphemies. The people lives in islands that were isolated by the actual, ‘perfect humans’.
DIARY
That day was a foggy day, it was so foggy that it had covered the entire island. It was very difficult to see things outside. The clouds were grey and the air had a lonesome feeling to it, then again, it could have only been me. It was the day everything began. This island had been closed down with the people still settled on it. We, and we meaning the people living on the island, were shut out from the rest of the world because of the simple fact that we weren’t exactly ‘humans’.
We were considered mutants. I beleive the word is too strong, but still, we lived with it. Some of us had 5 fingers and 1 thumb or 6 toes. My “mutation” was that my blood was a bit more purple than the rest of the blueish ,greenish blood that the rest had. My brother had 1 stupid ,extra toe. My mother wasn’t a mutant but refused to leave the island and leave us alone and my father , well, he left me when my brother was born, ages before I was born. He denied to accept the fact that he was going to have another son that was genetically mutated.
Sometimes I have a feeling in my heart that sometimes misses him (I know you can’t miss someone you haven’t even met but its a strange feeling) and there is another feeling in my heart , that is stronger than the other, that is happy that he left and wishes that he never returns. It’s a mixed feeling. That day, I had met a strange but friendly boy , that was roughly my age. The boy was homeless. We became acquainted , and played for some short time. In the evening he took me to side of the beach were I was restricted from by my mum. We arrived at a place, it looked strange from the outside. We went in and found his cousin. It turned out that they were both building a big ship to escape from the enclosed island. His cousin was angry at him for bringing someone else to the place . He explained everything to him and soon enough I became part of the project, to build an escape….

ROMEO

I fear, too early: for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night’s revels and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But He, that hath the steerage of my course,
Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen.

Hello and welcome to your personal online journal.

This platform has been created to enhance and enrich your learning at the London Nautical School. Its purpose is to provide you with an audience for your work (or work-in-progress) and you have the choice (by altering the ‘visibility’ of your posts) of whether your work on here is visible to the world, or only to your teacher.

Anything you post here in the public domain represents you and thus it’s important that you take care with that decision, but don’t be afraid to publish your work – as the feedback you may get from people at home, your peers and people from around the internet is only likely to enhance it.

Remember you can always access your class blog and all manner of resources through the Edutronic.net main website – and by all means check out the sites of your peers to see what they’re getting up to as well.

If you have any questions for me, an excellent way to get an answer is to create a new private post on this journal. I am notified of any new posts and will reply swiftly to any queries.

Make the most of, and enjoy this new freedom in your English learning.

Righto!
