I’m so confused, why did my father do that. Those poor people stranded on an island with no food or shelter. Well that’s if they survived the storm. I told him to stop but he said I did not understand. But I do not see what there is to see. They were innocent people they didn’t deserve that. Only bad people like that foul, beastly, horrid monster Caliban. He has no true feelings inside, he is just a savage who walks on all fours and cares for no one. A villain, who I do not love to look on, he makes me shiver inside. How he hurt me so with his actions, I am nothing but a frail girls who does not know about life and how it works.
I do often wonder if there is life other than me and father. If there is, how do they live? Do they all live in small caves like father and I. I am so confused by life. I can not understand why I am here and how I came to be upon this island. I’ve asked father but he usually tells me not to worry of such things. I can’t help but feel he is hiding something from me. I’d love to go and explore the world and discover new and exotic things. There must be more to life than this. Once, I heard father muttering about a place called Milan to Ariel. I do wonder if maybe father has been to Milan and discovered things he wishes to forget. If the people in Milan are anything like that Caliban beast. I wish to stay at home with father in the cave.
Wow, I have never laid eyes on such a beautiful, angel of a man. When I first saw him, He mad me feel fuzzy inside. The way his hair fell perfectly and he smiled. Father had always been the only other human I have seen. I did not know that not everyone is like that foul beast Caliban. Prince Ferdinand is his name. It was love at first sight for sure. Father, however is not so sure on my love for Ferdinand. I can only guess he fears for my safety. Who wouldn’t be after how Caliban treated me. I know however that it is safe. He is not as vile as Caliban, he would never hurt me.
Maybe the outside world isn’t as bad as I think. Ferdinand is so caring. I wonder how he lives. Father mentioned something about a palace. The world outside of my island sounds so nice. Possibly, one day I hope me and Ferdinand will go there sometime and I can show father it is not a bad world out there at all.
Caliban! That vile, hair raising, scaly, sickly beast. We have taught him how to speak and be like a human and the way he repays us is bitter. That day when he did that horrid thing. It frightened the living soul out of me. I hadn’t a clue what he was doing but it’s made me feel fragile and whenever I walk past him he glares at me and I treat him with caution. From being such a simple creature, living civilised like how we taught him and now whenever I see him he’s this dangerous figure with lurching limbs and dreadlock hair. But anyway my mind is on another thing, Ferdinand. When I first laid eyes on him he was a breath of fresh air. I thought he was some angelic spirit or nymph, walking around like he had wings, like he had the Midas touch. He was perfect head to toe. Just like Father but more fresh and new. Then I had a weird giggly feeling in my stomach, hiccupping butterflies. That’s when I fell in love.
When Father was treating him badly I felt it was wrong. This beautiful Angel had no right to be treated the same way as a rotting savage like Caliban. So I decided to speak out and so Ferdinand was set free. Earlier Father told me that we weren’t from this island and who he was and that there are many other people like me and Ferdinand living in a place called Milan. I can’t believe how he has lied to me all these years! Father and I are so close, we couldn’t live without each other however he didn’t think it was relevant to say what real life is like.
Now I am desperate to be free, to see the world. This Island still is amazing and homely but I am curious and wish to get to know more. Day dreaming I stare into the horizon, with parties, feasts, friends, dancing about inside my head. I’m desperate to get away from Caliban in case another insulting, petrifying incident happens again. And be together with Ferdinand forever
Stinky, smelly, sulky beasts do not deserve what has been given to them. Sending shivers down my spine. Staring at me. Caliban, with his lurching limbs, the ungrateful creature. Without us, without my father he wouldn’t have learnt the language, the language only used to show his ingratitude. The language only used to insult us. Without us he would be grunting, crawling and living like a savage.
Caring, understanding and kind we were in hope that one day he would be the brother I never had, the son father always wanted. But only to my disgust, my honour had been violated in a matter of moments. The terrible actions that villain had committed had resulted in being tied to a rock.
All my life every single day I would walk the beach and stare into the beautiful tranquil horizon, searching… searching for a ship… searching for freedom… trapped on the island only knowing Caliban, father and his spirits. Therefore I was overwhelmed the day Ferdinand came…
The best day of my life would have been the day prince Ferdinand walked into my life. A spirit? A sprite? A fragment of my imagination I thought until it was clear that the beautiful handsome being was as real as he could get.Feelings started to change inside of me, what was this? What was happening? Feelings I had never felt before…LOVE…
Trapped inside the concept of love I was blinded by it, and sooner became aware that father had made Ferdinand his slave…I tried everything to object…Good things come to those who wait. With my fathers permission at last Ferdinand was freed. And we were allowed to love.
I was scared at first, I was overwhelmed by the matter of love, I was in love with being in love, I didn’t know what to do…but sooner or later fate had it and all was figured out.
That dreadful, smelly, sulky beast! He makes me shiver every time I look at him. His hideous face, his body that slumps when we walks dragging his feet along with him. I and my father have tried to be kind to him, as he was all alone when we found him. However, Caliban did something so terrible my father had to tie him to a rock. Caliban was so horrible to me but there is a side of me which sympathises with him. He is just a creature he doesn’t know anything about society, he didn’t know what he was doing. There will always be a part of me which feels sorry for him.
After Caliban hurt me I felt vulnerable, scared and alone. He hurt me. Ever since that dreadful day my father has treat him like a slave. Someone who does everything for us. My father stopped being kind, he stopped teaching him our language. I didn’t even know what he was doing to me, all I know is he was hurting me. After that day, everything changed.
I wonder what is happening in Milan? I do wish that one day we will return. My dad told me about all the feats, the music and all the dancing. I wish that one day I will get off this island and have a happy, exciting life. I only found out about Milan today, I can’t believe my father lied to me all this time. However, I still think he is hiding something.
Today I met the most wonderful, handsome, kind man. He is called Ferdinand and came on this island looking for something or someone. As soon as I saw him I fell in love. He was so nice and kind to me but as always my father saw the bad side. He thought he was a sprite like Ariel and sent him to get wood for the fire immediately, but I know he is a good man and I hope I can see him again soon.
I and my father have always had a good relationship. It has always been just me and him on this island for so long. He is my father and my best friend. Then, when Caliban came along and hurt me I realised not everyone is as kind hearted as my father. I am not afraid to stand up to him, if I don’t agree with him we will argue. As I watched my father sink that ship I was not happy. I stood up to him and told him what I thought.
Life on this island is great but I am forever hoping that we will return to Milan.
