Soon after, Nemo’s companion shouldered his rifle and fired toward the surface. His shot struck a huge albatross, which was added to the crewman’s burden. As we walked on, I saw the vague glimmer of the Nautilus’s light and I was glad for it. The air I breathed had begun to grow heavy. Suddenly 51 Nemo turned and ran back toward me. He pushed me down into a shrub of seaweed as his companion did the same to Conseil. From that position on my back, I saw huge sharks swirl past. I could clearly see their silver bellies and huge mouths bristling with teeth.

The nets held a huge collection of fish, and I looked them over quizzically as they were lowered through a hatch. “Look at the ocean, Professor,” the captain said, surprising me. “It is awakening after a peaceful night. It lives and breathes with the tides and with evaporation. It has a circulation of currents. ” I didn’t answer, as he seemed to be half speaking to himself. Finally we returned to the lounge and I heard the propeller start up. Land and Conseil soon joined me. Conseil filled Land’s ears with the story of our undersea adventure.

It was an invitation from Captain Nemo to go hunting with him the following morning. The note also invited Land and Conseil to join us. ” Land cried. ” “It would seem so,” I said. We looked up Crespo Island on the maps and found it about 1,800 miles from the point we had joined the 45 Nautilus. The island was tiny, but I still looked forward to the opportunity to leave the ship.
