I'm so tired, but we need to keep going. We're so close to Barbados!
Nat and Kit get married in Wethersfield, Connecticut, and sail away to Barbados together. It was great weather for sailing, not a cloud in the sky. The sky showed no signs of storms anytime soon, and it seemed like nothing could go wrong.
When Kit and Nat got very close to Barbados, almost three-quarters of the way there-they encountered a serious obstacle- PIRATES! It happened just like this. A small sailboat, like something you would use for an afternoon out at sea, showed up in the open ocean. Kit and Nat figured that the passengers must be in trouble, so the put down their ladder so the passengers could get into their boat. When the passengers got on- they realized this was not as it seemed. The people they thought were troubled passengers were actually pirates, and they raided the ship, stealing their food and money.
Kit and Nat kept sailing, because even though they didn't have food or money, they still had their boat, the WITCH. They kept sailing towards Barbados. They were only a couple of days away.
After weeks of near starvation, hunger, and exhaustion, Kit and Nat had finally gotten to Barbados. It turned out that the people of Barbados had felt very sorry for Kit , but never had time to tell her. They supplied Kit and Nat with money, enough to buy a nice house.
