The Cruise Ship Disaster

''Blah, blah, blah, art is very precise, blah, blah blah." Mr. Getting blabbed on.  Sometimes college get's pretty frustrating. The bell finally rang. Suddenly, my BFF Hera jumped up on me. Yes, I said me "Gah! Hera! Every single time I try to grab my stuff, my BFF jumps on top of me the second the bell rings!" I joked. "Sorry, but is it that bad for a girl to want to see her best friend ever?" Hera whined. "Ha, no I guess not." I laughed. "Good. Now take a lookie-lookie at this!" Hera said as she shoved her phone in my face. "The all-expenses paid cruise ship giveaway has the winners!" Hera yelled. "Oh my gosh are you for real?" I started bouncing up and down. Me and Hera had entered the giveaway 12 times. "Play the video once we get to our dorm." I said trying to grab all of my supplies. Trying to get a master's degree can be hard. After the video..."Oh my freaking word! Can you actually believe we won?! Hera screamed. "Hera, when does it say what time and place it is?" I asked curiously. "Hmmm... aha! It's here in Florida at.... tomorrow." Hera said calmly. My hands stopped moving. "Did you say...?" "Tomorrow? Actually yes, I did." Hera seemed so proud of herself. I stood up brushing off my jeans. "Well then, we better start packing."

After listening to Hera sing 100 bottles of Coke on the wall, we finally reached the harbor. As we got on someone familiar helped me up."Brody? What are you doing here?" Brody was my fiance who I started dating in high school and later asked me you-know-what a few months ago. "I told you I was going to doing some more work over the weekend right?" "Yeah, but, you never told me you were working on this beauty." I pointed at the cruise ship. "Is it rude to say I thought you were pointing at me?" Brody asked. "Come on ya two lovebirds. The ship is gonna leave soon." I blushed. "Right, sorry Hera..." "No biggie, but this ship is! Come on!" Hera dragged us onto the ship. After a few hours, we got used to seeing all the famous boy bands walk around on the boat for their hourly shows. And yes, of course they were getting paid for it. After One Direction and Harry Styles finished performing, people started lightly clapping. I learned the hard way that people don't clap loudly for their favorite boy band... Anyway, all of a sudden, it started raining really hard. People started screaming and Harry and OD ran backstage and in to their complementary grand suite bedrooms. Everyone else ran down to their apartment styled rooms. I was searching on the internet for the reason why the sudden rain had started. I scrolled down to an article when my face went pale.

I ran to Brody's room as fast as I could, picking Hera up along the way. As we made our way into his room, I slammed the door behind me as if a monster was right behind us. "What in the crap Maddy?! I was trying to take a nap!" Hera snapped at me. I slowly showed them the article. Ben replied by saying, "You don't know if you can trust this kind of stuff or not." "O.K., first of all how do you have Wi-Fi here? And second, Brody is right, expecially if you got this off of Wikipedia." "DOES THIS LOOK LIKE WIKIPEDIA TO YOU?!?!" I tried to calm down. "Sigh. It clearly says that a hurricane is forming near the edge of Florida. How can you say it's not true??? " "Fine, if you can prove it to me then I'll believe you." "What if I told you to look out the window?" A tornado of water sped towards us. Then, it all went black.

"Ugh." My eyes fluttered open. I was not on the ship anymore. I was laying on warm sand and my head was rested on a pillow of palm branches. As I sat up, a monkey sat beside me eyeing me nicely. I swear he was smiling. "I'll name you Taiji." I said scratcing the cute little monkey's head. A crab scuttled sideways across the beach just to stop in front of me and come up to me. "Let me guess, you want a name too little guy?" I laughed. "How about... are you a girl or boy? Jump once for boy and twice for girl." The crab jumped twice. Or at least I think it did. "Ok, how about Herman?" Herman jumped up and down in approval. A click, whistle, and buzz startled me from behind. I turned around. A dolphin was there, not too close from shore."Oh this one is easy, how about Click?" Click clicked. Oh, how ironic. And I hate it when people use irony too much. They all ruin it. Since I was on some island, I might as well make the most of it. I looked around for some decent food. "Raspberries!" I cried getting up and running towards them. I grabbed a few berries and stuffed them in my mouth. Don't judge me. I haven't eaten in I quickly spat them out. My tongue felt bumpy instantly. Oh. I bet they were poisonous.

I had started to take a nap when I heard a voice above me. I quickly opened my eyes. A tan man that seemed to be in his early twenties was standing above me. "Are you okay ma'am?" I sat up. "Yeah, I'm okay. Thank you for coming by the way." I told the kind man. "We'll take you to a hospital right away. We already have a couple in the ER. We all heard about the hurricane. Are you sure you are okay?" "Yes, but can you take the dolphin to an aquarium near Miami, Florida? Oh, and were am I?" "You are currently residing in the very edge of Hawaii."  "Can you help me move this monkey and crab to my apartment later?" "Yes we can help you ma'am." "One last thing, was any of the other residents at the hospital named Brody or Hera?" "Yes, actually. Like I said earlier, they are in the ER. Please come with us now ma'am." "Yes mister." Later...  "Can you tell me where my friends Brody and Hera are?" "My, you ask a lot of questions don't you?" The man laughed."They're over in that room." The man pointed to room 15. I ran over to that room as fast as I could so that I knew my friend and fiance were okay. "Brody! Hera! You guys are okay!" I ran over to them and hugged them tight. Brody kissed me on the cheek. "I'm glad you're okay too." "Who's she?! Hera sassed. "Hera, It's me. Maddy?" I am seriously confused. A nurse walked up to me."Hera has lost part of her memory due to some brain damage when she almost drowned. She'll be back to normal soon, she will have to stay in the hospital for a little bit more and she'll have to take her clasess online. But for for the most part, she's gonna be okay." "Thank you miss." "Hera you're my best friend, and Brody, I love you." I smiled. "It'll all be okay."
