Finally after 3 days on the treacherous water, they had reached Southport.Atlas knew he couldn’t just beach the ship on shore without Orion knowing. The men anchored the ship a mile off shore, and loaded all there gear into a small rowboat.
They waited until nightfall before they attempted to head to shore. When the crew arrived on shore, Atlas gasped in horror. Altas and his men began the hunt for Orion. They quietly snuck through the town, hoping to surprise Orion while he was asleep.
When Atlas wasn’t looking Orion drew back one of his tentacle , and hit Atlas as hard as he could. Atlas was thrown into the air, and hit the water so hard that he lost consciousness. One of his men, Stephen, rushed to save Atlas from drowning.
When Atlas finally awoke he realized that Orion had hit him into the water, and despite his immense pain, he knew he had no other choice but to muscle up his courage and being to swim back to the surface. Once he reached the top, Stephen flung him towards the beast.
Atlas used this momentum to grab Orion by the head, and with his superhuman strength pull the monster’s head off. He threw it across the shore. A celebration for Atlas lasted three days, and on the last day, as he returned to his home on Oak Island, another battle broke out.
The beast killed Atlas and caused more destruction to the town than anything in the past. Before Atlas died, his dying wish was to leave Stephen in charge of his crew and the ship. To avenge his mentor’s death, Stephen was determined to protect his hometown.
