CHAPTER FIFTEEN THE CIANT SQUID N OT SO far from the Turtle City Michael saw iht blue-shadowed hulk of the ARADOON looming ahead of htm. Swarms offish hovered around the prow and thousands of mussels clung to the naked masks. Michael grasped the anchor chain nnd something snapped around his fingers. He drew back In alarm. A lobster wai dinging to his hand. He flung It off and kicked at the chain. Dozens of lobster* tumbled off of it. He swam over die half-collapsed railing and stood oiithebticUcddedc. Shivering, he made his; way 10 an open hatch and glided Into a great tunnel leading down. ' He passed the cook's galley with Its shattered potteiy scattered everywhere. He swam through, the crew's quarters and the cargo areas arid came at last to a closed cabin wUh UtrrAW written on me tilted door. He kicked af die door and It fell off Its hinges and floated away.

But as he reached out, the whole bed seemed suddenly to come alive and an enormous arm swung down and wrapped Itself around die trunk. For a moment Michael ihoughtthe. ghost of the captain himself was ris- Ing from the bed. Then two other arms slid towaid him and he saw that It wasn't the captain but a giant squid guarding the treasure. Seven of the creature's arms were missing and, staring at the other three, Michael knew that here was die 3-flngcred Monster of the Deep come to keep his vow. He backed against the wall. The squid's arms followed him. ^Scarcely breathing, Michael edged to the doorway and turned (o flee. P HOEELUNG Itself with bursts of black Ink, the squid jetted after him. Slimy arms slapped atMfchael's legs as he slipped through a yawning hatch and dived Into the crushcd-ln hold. Sand scraped his chest and his shoulder lung banged against the ship's broken ribs. Suddenly he found himself wtdgei Into a crevice and could go no farther. Twisting around In panic he saw the eye of the squid staring at him through the crevice. •What shall I do?" moaned Mlofcad, a.« he dulched the ship's ribs, .a jagged sliver suddenly broke off In his hands and, with out stopping to think, he plunged the tip through the crevice and speared the unsuspecting squid lirough the heart. Quickly he squeezed out of the crevice and sped away. Happy as he was to have killed the squid, he knew the Monster of die Deep still had two lives left and he must hurry. He- returned to the captain's cabin and kicked off die rusted locks of die Iron trunk. He threw back the top and stared wide eyed at the hundreds ol pieces of gold dial lay before him. Lvlr<! amon-: the '•oUl was a s'tvcr box and in the box was the predoiii black pearl. Michael took out tlw pearl nnd slipped It Inside his faca mask. Then, with a last look of long. Ing at the gold, he slammed shut tha trunk and turned (o leave. •I'm frecl' he thought happily n.i he came out on the deck.Tveescapedl the Monster after all!" But even as he spoke, a 3-eyed viper flsh slipped through thebucklcd deck nnd darted toward him.
