Marines Log: Day Three.
Location: Uncharted Island, North Blue.
"Captain... Captain... CAPTAIN!" one of the marines started to yell out in pure frustration, his face turning a bit red as the good captain was not even paying attention to them. Though finally the captain sighed and turned her head towards the marines walking behind her. "We have been walking in circles for days! We don't even know where we are on this creepy island!" the marine said as he slowly turned his head back and forth into the surroundings. They were walking along a dirt path in the middle of the forest, though from the moment that they walked into it they could tell that it was not normal. The way the trees looked and felt just reeked of creepy trouble, half expecting ghosts or zombies to pop out of the dark forest any minute now. Holding onto their weapons for dear life as many of them were already about to run away in fear any moment. "It feels like this forest is watching us..."
"Twice... we saw the same tree two times, that does not count as going in circles." the captain said as the marines behind them nodded in disagreement, holding up the number 4 as they had seen the same three over four times now. Though she knew that her marines were somewhat right, there was something wrong with this fores, and she knew quite well they they had been walking in circles for days now. But the strange thing was according to her own senses they had been walking straight, and she grew up in a forest. Not one as creepy but still a forest and she was more than able to find her way through a forest, more than most huntsmen. What ever it was that was keeping them lost in this forest was nothing natural, and she had the feeling that what ever it was did not want them to leave. This theory become more obvious once they realized that their den den mushi's received no signal anywhere near the island. "ZOMBIE!" she suddenly yelled out and pointed in the forest, scaring the crap out of her marines who all nearly jumped like little girls and grasped onto each other. Eventually realizing that there wasn't anything there and the good captain had tricked them; laughing as she walked away... Why does she hate us!?!
Three days earlier, before they even entered the island, they had received orders from one of the local bases that they there was a distress call somewhere in the area. Though when she accepted the mission she was expecting a pirate raid or ambush, what she was not expecting was some strange island that was not on any of the maps. But no matter how she felt about the situation their mission was to investigate the distress call.
