It was night 2’o clock and I was sleeping. I heard a knock on the door. I thought my mother would open it. Again I heard a knock, I went to the door and I was wondering who it must be at late night. No one was there. I got scared and went to my mother’s bedroom and saw that she was missing too, I was scared and rushed to the door. I thought that my parents have gone out and they are knocking to come in, so I opened the door and someone covered my mouth with a cloth and I was put into a sack. They were laughing and calling my name “Robert, Robert “. They opened me at 6 am. I tried to run, but a man with big muscles caught hold me and took me to their illegal base. They made me sit on a chair and tied my legs and hands. They had dangerous plans and I was the first target, but why? Did I do anything wrong? What will they gain from me? I was frightened to the core. They all were talking about a ruby. I didn’t have any idea what they were talking about.

Then I tried to loosen the rope and to my surprise it was easy to free my hands. They went out from the room at the same moment. It was a great chance for me to escape so I freed myself quickly. I looked around and saw a pistol lying there. I got scared at the sight of the pistol. I had a plan. I decided to take the pistol with me. It will help me escape the goons. I quickly took it and at the same time I heard their footsteps. I quickly hid behind the door and thought of a strategy to help me escape. I could hear their voices and their steady footsteps. They were coming in. As soon as they entered, I started shooting like crazy. They were off guard so, I managed to shoot everyone. Then I carefully came out of the base and saw that it was in an illegal dockyard. A man was coming near me so I hid in one of the boxes. Unfortunately they picked that box and had put it into a ship. I dared not to make a sound as this was my only chance to escape. I was sleepy and starving and exhausted by my adventure. I did not realize when I dozed off in the uncomfortable box.

After waking up I noticed that there was a small hole in the box that helped me see. I remembered that I still had the pistol and it could be of great use for self-defense. They carried me somewhere and I saw a board saying “Welcome to Algeria”. I traveled from Spain to Algeria. I had a gun so I was confident. I quietly ran to a room nearby. It was the storage food room, I was glad because I was starving. I put the gun under my t shirt and was munching some buns kept over there and carried some too. I found a cloth, I took it and wrapped my mouth and nose to avoid recognition. I was 16, so I could easily pass as an adult. I left the room and walked to somewhere nearby to the dock. I saw a market and wished to explore it. All people were staring to me and telling me a white guy. I was frustrated and angry at racism and therefore ran away from the market to a very lonely place. I saw two men beating a child and telling him to work for them, so I tried to stop them, but they removed their guns and pointed them at me I also was thinking to remove my pistol but they were more in number so I thought, going away is better than trouble. I vaguely remember one of them telling that the next ship is going to Spain. I decided to take my chance.

When the ship was loading, I quietly sneaked inside went to one of the rooms. I occupied the space below the bed so that no one can see me. I was starving so ate the buns which I had saved earlier. After some time we reached Spain. I waited for everyone to leave and came out of my hiding and left quietly without making much fuss. I prayed a silent prayer to God, for my extremely good luck. I took a cab and went to my house, my father paid the taxi and I hugged my parents tightly. I told them everything about my adventure but I didn’t know what ruby the kidnappers were talking about. But I am surely going to find about them, so do read this space for more of my adventure.
