Isabel's friend, Ivan, is always creative. He wants to make the best of their situation as refugees. Ivan think would be good for all of them to laugh, naming the boat.
We should name our boat!
We should name our boat
Everyone on the boat waits in anticipation for the name.
It's name should be...THE
Ivan's father, Senior Castillo, yells shark. Everyone in the boat is thrown into a panic.
The adults on the boat work to to pull in Ivan, Senora Castillo, and Isabel, on board. Only one person knows if the shrak has bitten anyone, Ivan.
Ivan's bleeding! Help him
Ivan breathed his last breath on that boat. Whether from shock or blood loss, Ivan died. Everyone on the boat felt horrendous grief, but they breathed to live another day. They eventually reached Florida, and made a home there. THE END
Ivan NOOOOOOO. My poor baby. Sobbed Senora Castillo
