about this story

7 years. It's been 7 years since I've seen home. July 18, 2006, I was on boat trip with my wife off the coast of the Bahamas. All of a sudden it just started to rain, it was too much for the small boat to handle. It sank. Along with my wife, however, I survived. I drifted too shore after about 12 hours, and I've been on this island ever since.
BUZZZZZZZ! The sound awoke me,it was a harsh and violent sound. The sound a machine makes, the sound of people. I followed the sound until it stopped. I slowly kept walking and I stumbled upon a sign on a tree. "PRIVATE PROPERTY! Violators will be prosecuted, " read the sign. I took another step and then it hit me. A sharp pain in my shoulder,a bullet. My vision was going blurry, but I could still see the outline of a man reaching out to grab me.
I could hardly open my eyes, and when I did, I wasn't on the island anymore. I was lying on small bed, inside a tent. Outside the tent I could see headstones, like graveyard headstones. I sat up, and winced in pain. My shoulder hurt, terribly. A man entered the tent, with handcuffs.
"Who are? How did you get onto Mr. Locklens private island estate?" Asked the man.
"I....I.....I have been stranded on the island, I heard the sound of people and I went to see if it was real." I replied quietly. A much larger man entered the tent, with a mean look on his face.
"Is he a FED?" He said with a deep voice.
"I'm not sure. He insisteds that he has been stranded on the island long before you discovered it." The other man added.
"Lock him up, it's too dangerous. We can't take any chances."
"What? NOOO!" I screamed, "I'm innocent!"
