- 34 arc basedon thefollowing passage.

121'/.,

Kawan.

It took us nearly two hours to cross the choppy waters and reach Pulau The bumboat was small and cramped, and the fear of capsizng haunted us. We

the would probably have reached Pulau Kawan if we had decided to srvim across,but wait current was too strong for us. We seemedto have left the jetty ages &go, after a tiring for the bumboat. There, weary and grumpy, we had grudgingly let the persistent in a mosquitoesfeast on our blood. Mau and Dino had quarrelled, and that left all of us bad mood. The unbearableboat ride did not lift our spirits either. It was a hot and humid jerked afternoon. Our shirts, wet with sweat, clung to our sticky bodies. The bumboat along, and I felt sick. For one moment, I must confess that I regretted joining them on this It was a crazyidea to want to camp on Pulau Kawan. Everyone knew that the

expedition.

island was haunted; and on each Thursday night, all the ghosts and spirits would drift over the island. Of course, we had to choose a Thursday to go to the island. Mau, Dino clamoured to set off on our expedition on T'hursday.Ju and I and Raja had senselessly had violently objected to that, but we were outnumbered,and in a democratic society like ours, the majority had their way. The sea was green and my face probably shared its colour. Ju's ceaseless grumblings were starting to be janing, and I was irritated with Raja's tunelesswhistling. pulau Kawan seemedfarther than usual. Though the island came into view soon enough, it was a good long while before we finally reachedthe jetty on the island. We steppedoff the bumboat carefully. Dino, however, lost his footing and, had it not been for Raja who deftly reached out and grabbed his collar, he would have fallen into the sea. I had suffered enough of the jerky motion of the bumboat, and when I stepped onto solid ground once again, I promptly threw up, much to the disgust of everyone.
