Everything rattled. I heard glasses breaking in the galley. I turned down the passage to my cabin—but I couldn’t get by. Something blocked my path. ” A scream escaped my throat before I could stop it. ” I cried. Sheena caught up to me. “Huh? ” And then she saw it too. It was hard to miss! ” A big creature blocked the passage. It was shiny and black and smooth. And almost perfectly round. It sat in a disgusting puddle of thick white slime. I’d never seen anything like it before. Except—something about it looked familiar.
D. had just —vanished! Sheena and I were alone in the middle of the sea! ” I asked softly. “Don’t panic,” Sheena said. But her voice shook. “Think. Where could he go? Know what? ” “A swim? ” I cried, my voice rising. “We probably would have seen him! Besides, since when does Dr. D. just go for a swim? ” “Well—there’s always a first time,” Sheena suggested.

It came off in my hand. I let go of the flipper and reached up a little higher. I grabbed her foot. And tugged. Sheena slipped down a little. I yanked on her foot again. Come on! I thought. Move! But this time Sheena didn’t budge. The sticky pink skin tightened around us. My insides felt as if they were about to explode!
