Could this be
She breathed in deeply inhaling the warm fresh scent of the
water. Her feet felt cool as the water touched them, sending cold
sensations up her body. The soft ocean breeze made her long
golden brown hair flutter like the wings of a butterfly. Her dark
grey eyes looked around, searching for dolphins. To her, they
were the most fascinating creatures, strong and beautiful with
smooth, wet slippery skin. Their songs were both mystical and
enchanting at the same time. Their eyes were always full of life.
It was as if they could look through her. It was as if they could
read her like a book and know every detail about her.
A soft sigh escaped from her lips as she grew tired of searching
for the intriguing creatures. She looked at the sky. The white
blazing sun, shining in all its glory was beginning to set,
making the sky shades of pink, purple, orange and red. She
watched the reflection of the sun on the water. It seemed to her,
the sun rose in the morning from the depths of the ocean and into
the sky to give warmth and light to all plants, humans and
She let her imagination run wild. She imagined the sun, purple
and bright lighting up the world of the unknown, making it a
lovely place to live, helping plants grow and helping creatures
big and small survive.
She turned around and walked away from the water onto the sandy
ground. There she sat down beside a rock. She nestled her toes
into the sand making note of its coarse texture. She looked
around taking in the scenery once more. She wiggled her toes and
felt the pleasure of the sand between them. She cupped a handful
of sand and let it fall. She smiled in wonder as the breeze
carried the sand away, she watched as it became nothing more but
a small trail as it moved further into the distance.
She looked back towards the water. The sun set however the sky
still had shades of pink, purple, orange and red. She patiently
watched as the colors faded and the dark, feared, mysterious deep
blue color of the Nightsky emerged.
Things are about to change.
She shivered as the wind grew stronger. It was cold and brutal,
making her body turn numb. The sands coarse texture changed to a
harsh oily texture. She quickly wiggled her toes out of the sand.
She tried to wipe the sand away from her legs, but it was hard to
remove. She rubbed her fingers together. There was oil on the
She stood up. Something had changed. Something was different.
She began walking around but soon she slipped and fell. Its ash
grey colour made her tremble in fear.
The moon was cruel, unmerciful, heartless and cold. It brought
fear into the hearts of many. It shone brightly but caused death
The change has begun.
She looked away from the moon. Her heart was pounding fast. Her
breath quickened. Her dress, arms and legs felt wet. She quickly
got up and looked at her dress. The cruel moon played its part
making the future known to her. She screamed loudly in terror.
Her dress once white was drenched in blood. She grimaced in
disgust at the terrible smell. Her first thoughts were to remove
her clothes and enter the water. What she saw next made her
change her mind.
Dead creatures became visible to her. Their blood flowed from
their wounds. She saw the majestic dolphins she loved so much
laying on the ground dead. Their throats slit open. Their deep
red blood flowed onto the ground. Their eyes once full of life
were filled with terror and fear. Tears fell from her eyes. Why
did this have to happen?
Her breath quickened as she saw one of the most feared creatures
of the deep. Sharks lay on the ground. Their fins were missing.
They had been mutilated. She could see their bones, meat and
muscle from where the fins had been cut off. Their mouths were
wide open, showing their sharp lethal teeth. Their eyes were open
wide with fear; it was as if they were pleading to be set free,
before they were killed in a chilly inhumane way.
She turned around and saw fishing nets, fishing rods, plastic
bags, bottles and rubbish lying on the ground. Amongst other
creatures, she saw a small green turtle. She slowly made her way
towards it. As she did, she hoped it was alive. Her hopes were
dashed as she moved closer. She wanted to turn around and leave.
Her mind told her to stay. The turtle was young and had a life to
live. A plastic bag put an end to its life.
Fish lay on the ground motionless. Some were gasping for air.
She looked at the water. It was red with blood.
A purple light caught her attention. It was the sun. She began
to run. She was careful not to step on the rubbish on the corpses
on the ground. Her chest began to burn. Her lungs screamed for
air. She didn't stop. The sun was the giver of life. She ran like
she had never run before.
She reached the sun. Its light was growing dim by the second.
She wanted to help. There was nothing she could do. She was
helpless. She stood there and watched as the sun's light faded
She fell to the ground and wept.
Could this be the future?
