The Sound of Hope.
On a warm January morning, Joel Gonzalez kissed his wife goodbye. Joel is a fisherman, and he was going on a short fishing trip. «I’ll see you in a week,» he said. But Joel didn’t see his wife in a week. He didn’t see his wife again for a along, long time. Joel left his house and went to the harbour in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. He got on a fishing boat. Four other fisherman were on the boat, too. The boat left the harbour, and the men began to fish. The first few hours on the ocean were not unusual. Then there was a terrible storm. The storm lasted for 22 days. When the storm finally stopped, the men checked their boat. Their fishing nets were gone. The engine and the radio didn’t work. There was no food, and there was no fresh water. For the next few hours, the men talked and planed. «How can we survive in the ocean?» they asked one another. Without their nets, the men couldn’t fish. But they could reach out of the boat and catch big turtles. The men didn’t want to eat raw turtles meat, so needed a fire for cooking. The tore down the boat’s wood cabin and made a fire with the wood. The needed protection from the sun and rain, so they built the simple roof. The roof held the rainwater, too. The men could drink rainwater from the roof. For the next five months, the men ate turtles — when they caught them. They drank rainwater — when it rained. Often there was no food and no water, and the men were hungry and thirsty. Sometimes they thought, «We are going to die soon.» Joel wrote a letter to his wife. «My dear Edith,» Joel wrote. «If i die i hope someone will send you this letter. Then you will know how i died. I had the best in life — a great woman and beautiful children. I love you, Edith. I love you.» In June it didn’t rain for a long time, and the men ran out of water. They where thin and weak, and they thought, «We are going to die now.» They lay down and closed their eyes. Joel despaired and was willing to die, but a few seconds later he heard a strange noise near by. He stood up, turned around and saw a huge blue English Box which came out of nowhere. The man looked out from it. He was holding a fez and was waving it to welcome fisherman. Joel couldn’t believe his eyes! The gentleman came out of his booth on the shore and came to the fisherman who had lost hope to survive. The gentleman said «Hello Joel. Once we had met. Do you remember me?» Fisherman gasped and then exclaimed «Doctor! My dear Doctor!»
A man who was standing near Joel amazingly asked «Doctor? Doctor who?». A gentleman looked at the man and smiled mysteriously. Then he said to Joel «My old friend, do you remember what i told you once? «Remember this sound, which emits the Tardis because this sound brings hope where you wouldn’t be»
