Is There Hope In Venice After All
Sean’s alarm clock blared at 6:30 a.m. He hopped out of bed and shut off his alarm clock, got dressed into skinny jeans and a black and white t-shirt. As he opened his bedroom door he walked down his carpeted stairs, he was surprised to see his roommate Mark making bacon and eggs. “Thanks for the breakfast,” said Sean gleefully. “No problem, After all we are going to need it for this week,” replied Mark. It was the year 2028, and the human race had failed to stop global warming. Sean and his friend/roommate were going on a 3-hour and 15 minute flight to venice. They hoped to help people whose houses had been completely submerged in water. They did have to get a private plane flight.( The plane was a seaplane, so they could land next to venice and get in a lifeboat.) They needed to pack a LOT of food, water and blankets. They also needed to rent a moving truck to pack all of those supplies.
Once Sean had finished with his breakfast and packed his clothes. He started to load the moving truck full of canned soup,water bottles and fleece blankets. The day seemed to never end, at 6:57pm Sean and Mark hoped in Mark’s truck and began their long journey to the airport. 2 1/2 hours later they reached the plane and unloaded the moving truck. As the plane was zooming down the runway Sean got the feeling that his life would never be the same. He was filled with joy and excitement and assumed the same for Mark. After a half hour of sitting there Mark closed his eyes and fell asleep. But all Sean could think about was helping those people.
The flight seemed to drag on forever and when it finally ended, Sean sat there for a good 5 minutes, knowing that these people are depending on him. As Sean and Mark emerged from the plane they almost fell into the Adriatic Sea. They went back inside and grabbed the inflatable raft,blew it up and sat it down into the water. (PLOP) They got to a dock and stood up onto the well crafted wooden structure. They looked around and saw houses that had water up to the top of the window sill. They grabbed the inflatable raft and dropped it down once again onto the water roads.(PLOP) They looked up the flooded streets and saw a big wigwam looking thing on stilts. They rowed over to the big structure and tied down the raft. As they walked up the ramp they saw the most peculiar thing, it appeared that the plane had vanished as it flew towards the horizon. “The ocean must be playing a trick on us,” said Mark. “Probably,” said Sean. Mark gave a swift little knock on the big wooden door. And a wooden slot slid open, a man’s face was peering through it. “ Are you here to deliver the supplies,” he said with a deep booming voice. “Yes,” replied Sean. they were happy to hear the cheering coming from inside the makeshift house. You could tell they had to build it quick. Mark went back to get a crate of food,water and blankets while Sean stayed and talked with the residents. One of them named Polly said that they had made this in about 5 weeks. She said everyone had a job because they knew that in time they would all have to move there. She said it started out with walking in ½ an inch of water and became wading through knee deep water. That’s when they decided to move to the structure.
Mark got back and handed out supplies while Sean went to get some, and they continued like that for a long time. It was 1:00 in the morning till everyone got food, water and a blanket. Sean and Mark got some shut eye and when they woke Polly offered to show them the structure. As they opened the door, they absorbed the morning breeze and saw that the structure was made with stone pillars.
Five Days Later
Sean and Mark had examined it well because they would be leaving soon. They had just handed out the rest of the supplies and had radioed the plane to come and pick them up. It was only a matter of hours before they were out of there. But Sean and Mark wanted to help even more. He wanted to bring these people back to start a new life. They went back inside and as they went in they saw two boys and two girls playing tag, it brought a smile to their faces knowing that they had made a pretty bad situation into a good one. All of a sudden they heard a crack and everyone froze. A floor board across the room had cracked and everyone had jerked their heads in that direction. “Everyone stay calm, I’m going to need some people to come with us outside to take some of the pressure off of this floor.” yelled Mark. As Mark lead the people off the wooden floor it collapsed, there was 50 people stranded in the water and the people who knew how to swim helped the ones who were incapable of swimming. All of a sudden a piece of plywood fell off and knocked Mark out. Without thinking Sean dove into the water and pushed Mark out from under the wood, sand got him to the ramp. There was hundreds of people on the ramp when the plane came and Sean and Mark flew away into the sunset with one promise, ‘Send food,water and help.’ As soon as they got back they went straight to the mayor of the town and said, “We need your help getting an airline or the president to help us, We need to send help to the people in venice!” urged Sean, while Mark nodded. “Don’t worry, I paid a lot of money to get united airlines to send planes over and over again until they are all safe. They are sending about 50 planes that could carry 75 people each and every single one of them will be safe in about 12 hours.” “Thank you,” said Mark. And with that they walked down the marble staircase and round a corner with the best feeling ever, Triumph.
