Example text

But I must admit I’m thrilled to know that I’m not leaving the Nautilus just yet. I’ve seen diving suits before, but these suits have a portable air tank! Yet another technological marvel! I wonder what will happen next. This is the air that you will need to breathe when you are hunting underwater. This special tank will push oxygen through your suit and into your helmet for approximately 10 hours. 33 It didn’t take me long to find out. I had faith in Nemo’s science—how could I not after all that I had seen?

Captain Nemo’s first concern was to revive the unfortunate diver. I wasn’t sure he would succeed, but I hoped so. He quickly cut the rope binding the man to his stone and, with a forceful kick of the heel, rose to the surface. Fortunately, after vigorous massaging by Conseil and the captain, the nearly drowned man regained consciousness. What must he have thought when Captain Nemo pulled a bag of pearls from his diving suit and placed it in his hand? It seems that Nemo did not hate all of mankind.

We had no weapons. Going against such a creature unarmed would have meant certain death for both of us. Nemo was willing to sacrifice himself for the good of, not only his men, but a complete stranger too. 39 I can see Captain Nemo to this day. Bracing himself, he waited for the fearsome man-eater with wonderful composure and, when it rushed at him, he leaped aside and avoided a collision. But that wasn’t the end of the story. A dreadful battled ensued. Just then, I saw someone moving toward the shark.
