On the boat, we met a girl named Rashida. She was shocked when she heard our story, but we were equally shocked when we learnt hers; she had been born in Australia, but when she had gone to see family in Afghanistan they had made her stay there. She may have saved our lives with her hospitality and kindness; we will never know what would have happened without her.
It was awful not knowing where Mum and Dad were, or even where their boat was, as we had no contact with the other ship. For all we knew, the ship had crashed hours ago!
Nowadays I hear that people go on boats for fun and travel to different places, but our boat ride was definitely no fun! One morning we woke up and found ourselves being attacked by pirates. One of them kicked me in the hip, and the smugglers who were taking us to Australia abandoned us, leaving us in the middle of the ocean!
One terrible night I was awakened by screams. The ship was sinking, and there was no one around to save us. To make matters worse, we could see a ship armed with guns and weapons approaching. But once I recognised the flag, I was no longer afraid. It was the flag of Australia! They had come to rescue us!
We had finally arrived at land! Everyone was enjoying themselves, and everything was happy. Now we only had to wait for Mum and Dad's boat to arrive, and everything would be perfect. But soon enough, we found out a terrible secret... this wasn't Australia! The government had kept us out. Then, to make matters worse, we received some devastating new... could it really be true?
Could my parents ship really have sunk?
After days of agonising waiting for more news from the ship, we had given up. There was no hope we would ever see our parents again... until we saw two familiar figures in the distance... could it be? Yes, it was! We rushed towards our parents, screaming in joy. It didn't matter that this wasn't Australia anymore. We were with our family, and that was all that mattered.
