I am running, running, gasping for air. Sprinting into the water, my hair spewing everywhere. The warm ocean putting manacles on my feet, pulling me farther into its rolling storms. Thoughts leaping through my mind like sashaying horses. I have just found out my mother and father have died in a car accident, leaving me with no other family. I slowly look around the sunrise fading into the water down below, far away. My hands drag my shirt off and I throw it backwards, leaving my pants crumbled in a pile on the sqeaky sand. Then I slowly walk in to the water, diving in. The salt stinging my eyes and a small paper cut on the tip of my finger. In an instant something hard hits my foot and I yelp, bubbles thrashing everywhere. My head bobs down to see a fisherman's net wrapped around my ankle, its grasp cutting deep into my skin. Suddenly a rough hand softly touches my ankle, the net loosening its grip until it's off. But then my breath is gone, too late. A sensation of tingles comes crashing into my lips, air rushing into my lungs, forcing me to cough up water. My eyes flash open in a panic, to see him bent over me. A huge wave of unknown feelings hits me... My heart beats louder than ever before, telling me he's my true love.
