Jeff, Le Gleo, and Itchoua arrived at three skeleton key. They were starting there 22 month stay. Their job was to keep the light house operating.
On the ninth night Itchoua saw a boat that was heading for the island. It got close than turned around. They looked and saw no one, so they thought it was derelict boat.
The boat had gone back forth for the whole night, but in the morning it got too close to turn around. When it got close they saw thousands of huge rats on the boat. The rats must of eaten the crew. The boat kept on coming and crashed into a rock. The boat sank, but the rats swam toward the island.
The rats saw them and then ran after them. They locked all the doors and windows as fast as they could. The rats covered the lighthouse. They scratched and bit the windows trying to get in. The rats trapped them inside.
One night while Itchoua was sleeping, the rats broke the window in his room. They flooded in and bit him. Itchoua had fight the rats off with their knifes.
They barley escaped, but they were now traped in the top of the lighthouse with no food. The rats took over the rest of the lighthouse, and they ate anything edible. They were now losing hope.
