The Whale off Staten Island (198 Words)

You never know how big a thing is until you see it with your own eyes. I’ve seen a great many things, but of all the things I’ve seen I never saw this Whale that lived on the bottom of the ocean. That story is left to my neighbor.

This neighbor was taking the ferry to Staten when the storm carried him far off course. He was swept overboard and thought for sure he was going to die. My neighbor opened his eyes, and the world around him was shining in eerie patches of green.

And there was the Whale.
