The bright summer sun shone its warm rays onto the visitors of Silver Beach. They playfully splashed about in the cool water. Surfers were riding huge waves quite far from shore. One surfer lost his balance on his board and fell off. He resurfaced and rested his elbows on his board and laughed at himself. Then, with a violent tug, he was pulled under water. It happened so fast that he didn't even have a chance to scream.

 The people of the beach were none the wiser of what had happened. The day wore on. The missing surfer's absence went unnoticed. As the sun began to get closer to the horizon, more and more people left the beach. A girl with blond hair got onto the beach after most of the other people had left. She was supposed to meet her boyfriend there at sundown. Sadly, she was unaware of the fact that her boyfriend met his death earlier that day.

 She sat on the sand and stared out into the water. In the distance, she saw something floating. She recognized it at once. It was the surf board that belonged to her boyfriend. She was scared. She ran into the water and swam towards the board. As the water was about fifteen feet deep, she reached the board. She felt something brush against her leg. She gave out a shriek of terror. She thought she saw a large silhouette moving underneath her. She sat on the board and began to paddle to shore with her hands.

 She was terrified. Something suddenly hit the bottom of the board, causing her to fall into the water. She felt something clasp tightly around her leg. The sudden water that hit her eyes made it hard to tell what had grabbed her. She drowned soon after she was dragged further out to sea.

 Early the next morning, a man was out for his morning jog. As he reached the beach he saw that a part of the shore was tinted a red colour. As he drew closer to the water he realized that it was blood. There were small, mangled chunks of what looked like human flesh. The man gasped and left for the police station.

 All entrances to Silver Beach were blocked with police tape that held the words Police crossing line. There were quite a few police officers on the beach, examining the blood. There were police boats searching the waters. One officer saw something large move under the waves. He was very afraid but calmly parked his boat on a dock just outside of Silver Beach. He reported what he had seen.

 More police boats were called in from the Aquatic Department that was located quite a way up the shore. There were six small boats in total. Suddenly, one of the boats was tipped over. What ever had struck it, it struck on the other side of the boat, out of sight of the other officers. "What the hell happened?" said one of the officers that went overboard. Two other officers were in the water. One was pulled under water. "Oh, my God!" exclaimed an officer that was on one of the remaining boats. Another officer was pulled under.

 The mysterious silhouette had finally revealed one of its features, a large dorsal fin. It was a shark that was causing all of this havoc. It was heading for the remaining officer. The shark lunged out of the water, revealing its huge, razor sharp, teeth and attacked him. Bloody water was thrown everywhere. The other police boats retreated in terror. "A G-Great White, a friggin' Great White!" one of the officers said more to himself than to the others.

 The shark advanced on one of the retreating boats. One of the officers on board of that boat grabbed a tazer gun and shot it at the shark's nose as it resurfaced. The shark thrashed about in a vicious manner. Then, everything went silent as it sank like a rock to the ocean floor. The officer grinned with a glare. "What a great shot!" said one of his peers, patting him on the back. "That thing was huge! We should send people to clean it off of the ocean floor, and then I guess we could donate it to science."

 As the weeks wore on, the shark attacks were what everyone talked about. The story got twisted in odd ways. One version said that the shark was a huge mistake made by scientists messing with biohazardous material. Another version says that the shark was trained to kill by a group of angry scientists.

 One thing is certain, though. The people at Silver Beach should be advise to realize that what had happened could be far from over, especially when, far away from shore, a small child was swimming too far from his parents and was violently dragged under the waves.
