Scary Places :: The Bermuda Triangle

You won't find the Bermuda Triangle on a map but the name can still strike fear into the hearts of some peeps. The Bermuda Triangle's three corners extend from the island of Bermuda to Miami, Florida to San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is in this area that a high number of unexplained disappearances of planes, ships and people have taken place.

Bermuda Triangle - What Happened to Flight 19?

One of the most famous disappearances is Flight 19. On December 5, 1945, five US Navy Avenger bombers mysteriously vanished while on a routine training mission. The flight was led by Lieutenant Charles Taylor, who kept in contact on the radio until nothing could be heard. The rescue plane that was sent to search for them never made it back either. Six aircrafts and 27 men vanished without a trace, or so it seems. Did Flight 19 simply crash into the Atlantic Ocean or did something more mysterious happen? And where did the rescue plane go?


Bermuda Triangle - What Happened Aboard the Marie Celeste?

Some people believe the Bermuda Triangle extends farther than the outlined area of Bermuda, Miami and San Juan. If this is the case then another interesting disappearance is worth mentioning. The Marie Celeste left New York Harbor on November 5, 1872 with a cargo of industrial alcohol. Passengers on board the ship were Captain Benjamin Spooner Briggs, his wife and two year-old daughter and eight crew members. On December 5th of that year, another ship found the Marie Celeste adrift in the Atlantic Ocean. All the passengers and one lifeboat were missing. The cargo and personal belongings were left behind on the ship. It was clear that the boat had been abandoned quickly so not enough supplies would have been on the lifeboat. Why the Marie Celeste was abandoned is a mystery.


What's Going On at the Bermuda Triangle?

It is said that more than 50 ships and 20 planes have gone down in the Bermuda Triangle (also called the Devil's Triangle) during the last century. The deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean lies within the Bermuda Triangle, which might explain why some planes and ships are never seen again. More than a few people think the Bermuda triangle is full of UFO activity. In fact, some think that aliens have abducted missing planes and ships. Other people believe the area has several vortexes (usually a swirl of water that sucks in everything near it) that transport the lost planes and ships to another time and place. Then there are always logical explanations for the disappearances like weather, lack of experience and strong currents.

Gustpaw padded up to his mentor, Darkfur. "Can we go hunting, Darkfur?" He asked his mentor. "Now?" He asked in disbelief. "We just got back from dawn patrol, and training right after!" He said. Gustpaw didn't care, he was full of energy. "Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease, Darkfur?" He pleaded to the dark brown warrior. "Oh, go catch a bird!" Darkfur spat and walked off. So he did.    The next day after hunting, Gustpaw asked Darkfur if they could go and train with the other apprentices. "No, I'm tired from hunting and dawn patrol this morning," he said, sleepily. "Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease, Darkfur?" He whined to the broad-shouldered tabby. "Go catch a bird, apprentice," he said and stumbled to the Warriors' den. So he did.   The next day after training, Gustpaw asked Darkfur if they could go on evening patrol. "No way! The way you hunted earlier was horrible! A deaf rabbit could have heard you!" He scolded. Gustpaw flattened his silver ears. "May I please try hunting again?" He asked politely. "Later," his mentor said. "Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease, Darkfur?" He pleaded desperately with sorrow in his eyes. "Go and catch a bird, you scrap of fur!" Darkfur ordered, angrily. So he did and didn't come back.    The next day after Darkfur returned from hunting, he went to the Apprentices' den. "Has anyone seen Gustpaw?" He asked, not seeing his fluffy, light gray apprentice in the den. "I haven't seen him," Berrypaw said, her dappled tortoiseshell pelt glowed from the sunlight between the branches of the gorse bush. "Neither have I." Oakpaw answered him. "Me either..." Sparrowpaw replied. "I hope he's okay!" Featherpaw burst out. "Huh?" Darkfur asked as Berrypaw padded over to comfort Featherpaw. "Gustpaw will be okay," she reassured Featherpaw. Featherpaw just scuffled her gray paw on the ground. "C'mon, he's strong, brave, swift, smart, and loyal. He'll be fine and he'll return eventually." Berrypaw reminded her. "I hope so," she replied. Suddenly, her eyes burned with a new fire. "We have to find him!" She said loudly. "I'll find him if it's then last thing I do!"   Search parties searched every little bit of ThunderClan territory, but they hadn't found Gustpaw.   At the Gathering, ThunderClan's leader, Gingerstar, asked the other leaders if they had seen Gustpaw. "RiverClan hasn't, right?" Ripplestar asked his Clan. They shook their heads. "Redstar?" She asked the ShadowClan leader. "Haven't seen him," Redstar answered as ThunderClan started to worry. Featherpaw started up at the leaders on the rock, praying to StarClan that WindClan saw him. Gingerstar asked WindClan's leader. "I'm sorry, Gingerstar, but we haven't seen him." Hawkstar answered. Featherpaw stared up in disbelief. "Gustpaw!" She yowled in sorrow. "He can't go, he can't! I refuse to believe he's gone, he has to be somewhere! Oh Gustpaw, oh Gustpaw! StarClan, why?" She wailed like a queen who's kit has died. Darkfur leaned over to Leapfoot, Featherpaw's mentor. "What's wrong with her? I suppose it is sad that we lost Gustpaw, but why is she making such a big fuss over one apprentice?" He asked her. Leapfoot looked at him like he asked her if hedgehogs could fly. "You honestly haven't noticed yet?" She asked him with a mrrow of laughter. Darkfur tilted his head, clearly unaware of what Leapfur's talking about. "You stupid furball!" She said playfully. "Featherpaw has been into Gustpaw for moons!" She said, getting more serious. "I bet her heart feels broken." She says and quietly adds "Like mine." She said, talking about Drizzlepelt, her mate who died in battle with RiverClan. She stood frozen in place, staring up at Silverpelt. The moon made her sand-colored pelt glow, but Darkfur knew she didn't feel as radiant as she looked right now. He looked at her and then to her apprentice, both staring up,at Silverpelt, both lost their mates. Suddenly, realization hit him like a thorn in his pad. I caused both, Drizzlepelt and Gustpaw's deaths...   Once back at camp, Darkfur went to his nest in the Warriors' den. He laid down and closed his eyes. He had provoked RiverClan by chasing a rabbit over the border, accidentally which killed Drizzlepelt. And he had been a piece of pure fox dung to Gustpaw which chased him away, probably into StarClan. He had caused both their deaths and their mates didn't know it. He sighed and lay there with his eyes open, staring into nothing.   At moonhigh, Darkfur wriggled silently out of the Warriors' den and exited camp through patch of gorse near the nursery. He ran out of the ravine (yes, this is in the forest) and ran through the trees. He was running the direction of RiverClan. Once there, he pelted along the borderline until he reached The Gorge. "I don't deserve the respect ThunderClan gives me. Leapfoot and Featherpaw dot deserve to be broke-hearted. Drizzlepelt and Gustpaw didn't deserve to die." He paused. "But I do." And jumped into The Gorge.
