Next I hear the roar of the engine and we slowly started going, the boat proceeded to go faster and faster. As the boat turned the tube went out of the middle over the wake to the outside, the waves were pretty large and I caught some air and hit my head against the tube a few times. When Russ turned my body slipped backwards toward the back of the tube where my feet were in the water, I was able to use my knee to advance myself upward on the tube some to where my original position was. After a little while longer Russ slowed the boat to a stop, it was now Pipers turn and she did well at it
I turns to Lennie and says, ‘Jump in.’ An’ he jumps. Couldn’t swim a stroke. He damn near drowned before we could get him. An’ he was so damn nice to me for pullin’ him out.
Across the lake, was a small island, several hundred meters away. I had decided to swim to it long before my skin ever touched the water. Lake Tahoe is big enough for small waves to form just like the ocean. Thus, it is easy to get swallowed up by the lake, without having the same fear of the ocean. Unknowingly, I continued towards the island, swimming with less and less intensity each second.
I saw five gill slits lying directly behind its large head. Then, as elusively as it rose, the whale shark began its slow decent into the abyss. Watching it swiftly elude into the depths of the ocean, I felt myself shouting for its return. This would be a memory etched in my mind forever. As I sat silently on the ride back to shore, I was keenly aware of my surroundings.
I eventually moved all of the wreckage and pulled a small, teenage girl with deep brown eyes out of the remains. She recovered well and drank plenty of water since she had been dehydrated for two straight days. She thanked me and all of my people for the help and the effort of saving her life. I started to hear the scream again, but this time in all directions. People were alive and needing the help of an outsider to pull them out and resuscitate them from the rubble.
Everyone then told their stories about how they got here and what their lives were like before. Then, the voice quickly explained that clouds can’t hold water for long and that we are about to fall from the sky. Screams ensued and before we knew it, we were hurtling toward the earth faster than a bullet. The Earth hurtled closer by the second.
We drop the anchor, stopping the boat in shallow sandy area where we can spend the afternoon. With little hesitation we are in the water. Splashing fights are immediate, but soon we start an organized game of tag while the grownups relax and prepare lunch aboard the boat. Sandwiches in the cooler, our parents make their way into the water too. Aunty’s scream scares me.
A warm morning, sun shining with a slight breeze, and calm waters; the perfect day to learn how to water ski. I had never been water skiing before, I barely knew what it was, I was anxious to say in the least. I stood on the dock as my parents maneuvered the boat into the water, I’ve never been so uncertain. My family reassured me that everything would be okay as I was strapped up my life jacket. I stood on the edge of the boat, apprehensive, but I had to jump in the water, it was now or never.
An hour and a half had passed, and now the boat was swaying harder and harder from side to side. The black thunderous black clouds that had originally been seen on the horizon to the west had finally made its presence to the boat. The eyes on everyone started looking like they were in a drunk daze, because of the momentus rock. It only took a few minutes from the nice wave-pool type waves to transfer into what was now fifteen-foot waves and a downpour of large heavy stinging raindrops. Turmoil and regret as to why the captain had let us out entered my mind, even though I had
I shouted, waving for her to hurry. She runs and takes my hand as Demetrius pulls us long; the ship is now even more slanted. Everyone is shouting, pushing, trying desperately to try and get out. "What are we going to do?" I asked; panic in my voice certainly heard. "Shh, calm down and think.
There has been a long silence since that day, all of us waiting for our departure to the deep sea. If only things were different, if only we could do something. We have wasted days trying to come up with a solution for this. We have tried to make contact with the human species passing by but they don't stay for long.
