Kristin Heart Series
New Island Quest——by Kristin Heart
Part 1: Old Island “Ratuen” and New Island “Dregon”
The family name behind “Ocean”, we live on Pulau Lama that Pulau Lama is named “Ratuen”. Ratuen Island is famous for its lush greenery around ant nests in several forests before the volcanic earthquake, volcanic eruption, and tsunami occurred.
We have lived on Ratuen Island for many years and there has never been any disaster. My father’s name I call “Budi” as King Ant, while my mother’s name I call “Minuk” as Queen Ant. My nickname is “Kristin” as Princess Ant, I don’t have any siblings. I am happy with our family.
Five years later, we were surprised that the first earthquake was mild. We thought the earthquake was just an ordinary earthquake, even though it was a volcanic earthquake, not a tectonic one. Then we were having my father’s birthday party until it was over then coming home from the ant party to our house suddenly there was a moderate aftershock.
“What happened, father?” my word.
"This is an earthquake, Kristin. Maybe this earthquake could be another aftersh but we have to prepare a collection of food and drinks for special emergencies” said my father.
"Yes, well, my father. I thought if there was an aftershock, could it be that the earthquake came from a volcanic eruption?” my word.
“Don’t worry, this is just an ordinary earthquake, our nest won’t collapse,” said my father.
I returned to our house after helping some soldiers who were victims of the aftershocks. I collect food and drink with my ant neighbors, my father, and my mother.
3 days later there was another earthquake suddenly one of the mountains named “Eun” again rose from sleep releasing lava, hot clouds, and lightning in the top hot clouds. Our worried family immediately summoned all my ant people, and my ant soldiers to prepare to build a ship made of tree wood.
“Father, let’s help our ant people who build ships, bring food and drink” I said.
“Okay Kristin,” my father said as he brought food and drink for the emergency.
“O my ant people, are you all right? I’m worried that I don’t want my people to die due to the eruption of Mount Eun.” My word.
"Ready, Your Majesty. Let’s start from now "said my people.
“Well my people,” I said, carrying important letters such as notes.
Then we boarded the ship with my ant people, and my ant soldiers managed to leave Ratuen island even though it was very sad to see the volcanic earthquake and the eruption of Mount Eun. Not long after 10 minutes suddenly saw the sea water and saw a high wave, it turned out to be a tsunami.
“What is it that the seawater rises?,” said one of my ant soldiers.
"What? Seriously?” I asked one of my ant soldiers while looking with an ancient telescope.
"Oh no. It’s a tsunami. We are heading right turn south near a high rocky cliff” I said to my ant soldiers.
“Ready, your majesty,” said my ant soldiers, rushing to the right, turning south to the back of the highest rocky cliff.
“Oh there’s a hole in the rock part of the cliff, let’s go in first,” I said.
Managed to get into the rock cliff hole and survived holding hands together without being distracted. Finally all my ant people, my ant soldiers, my father, and my mother survived after the tsunami left and then went back to look for a new island.
For 5 days we slept on a wooden boat until we saw a very beautiful mysterious island. My people and my soldiers looked happy to see the island.
“Let’s move to the new island, we name the new island “Dregon” because the island is very big and wide,” said my father.
“Yaaay” said my people and soldiers with a smile and happy.
“Thank you my father and mother for saving our people and soldiers,” I said to my parents while hugging them together.
Having arrived at a new island called “Dregon”, we are looking for wood, bird nest skins, and ant house tools to build nests for my ant people’s houses. Suddenly there was a voice that turned out to be the main ant king yell on my farther.
“Who are you? Why do you and your ants come to here?”
Faced with the sudden questioning, the Kristin family was surprised. It turns out that this island has an owner. The Kristin family was the uninvited guest. How will the two sides interact? Will they fight? Let’s find out in the next chapter
