It started and there was no going back now. We have to get out of there or else we would end up like our mom and dad -dead. There was meant to be a boat coming into the pier at eight o’clock that night. There would be soldiers coming off and eventually we could sneak on and we wouldn’t be in danger anymore.
Meanwhile all my sister and I had to do was not get spotted. I knew we were in danger because if they found children they’d split them up and make the boys fight and the girls nurse. After a while, it was time for us to go. We got to the pier but the ship was gone – we were too late.
We ran as fast as we could to the cliff and saw the Turkish army coming. Their boat was massive and they had a lot more people. This was going to be a bloody battle so we had to get out of there. As we were standing on the edge of the cliff, the boat got closer and closer to land. We heard the shouts of the British and the screams of men in pain. It was hazardous standing out in the open so we had to go somewhere, where it was quiet and where nobody could see us.
Suddenly a big black cloud came from nowhere and then we saw erratic waves crashing against the rocks. We saw the Turkish boat turning and getting nearer to the rocks. Then we heard the march of soldiers and their guns firing at the boat.
Suddenly as my sister and I looked up and saw a piece of wood coming at us – it was too late …Everything went black.
