The legend spoke about strange beings. They might be strange, but if he found them they could possibly find out how to get back through the portal. The Captain ordered some of his crew to come with him to see the land. He selected a small number of sailors and Lieutenant Bob. They set out in a rubber raft. The raft came ashore and the Captain ordered everyone out. At first the captan did not see anyone, but then he heard things in the bushes. The Captain said, "Who is there? Show yourself!" All of the sudden a strange creature came out of the bushes. The creature was a tall green humanoid. He was wearing expensive looking furs. He also was holding a metal sword. They looked at each other for a second and then the Captain asked boldly "Do you speak English sir?" The creature looked at him oddly. He motioned to follow him though. The Captain and his crew followed the creature. They eventually came to a little village. There they found houses made out of a futuristic plastic. Then another creature walked up to him. He spoke English. He said "My name is Abery. Welcome to the village of Futuria "The Captain responded, "My name is Edward Star. We need help. We are very lost." The Captain told the creature about everything that happened. The black clouds and the lightning. "Hmm," Abery exclaimed, I think I can help you out." "Good! said the Captain, We need to get out of here soon." Abery said, "People from our world used to visit your world. We found your world to be hostile place, so we stopped going there. The portal can only be opened in a storm. Tonight, sail your ship away from land. I will give you a lightning stone. It will make sure that lightning will strike your ship as you sail out to the black cloud. The Captain was skeptical, but with few options he agreed. He made sure that Lieutenant Bob put it on the highest point on the sub. When it became night, they thanked the kind creatures and sailed into the night towards the black clouds. They could see lightning in the distance as they came closer to the clouds. They got under the clouds and waited. He had Bob disconnect the computer to make sure it would not die once it got struck with lightning again. All of the sudden lightning struck the sub and the lights went out for a second then they came back on. They plugged in the computer again and Bob loaded the GPS unit on it. As they computer lit up again, the radio crackled back on. The GPS finally loaded and he could see their position on the GPS. He thinks to himself, "If that legend was true, how many others are true?"
