Stories From Kiribati

It really was a dead man's body. I came across this body while I was out swimming in the sea. When I first saw it, I was very shocked!
I quickly ran up and to my house. I told everyone about what I had seen. When they heard me, they ran straight to the scene to see and prove what I'd told them. As they came closer to the body, they started smelling something very bad so they tightly covered their noses.
They brought the body onto the land and called the police. I was among the people waiting for the police truck. When the truck arrived the policemen helped the body onto the truck. Then everyone went back home. I believed each had a thorough wash.
That night, I could not sleep because I was afraid of what I had seen.
