Sandra and Angie are surrounded by hungry man eating sharks. Could they possibly save themselves and find the island? Find out in Chapter 7 - Will we escape?

  Angie's mid length curly brown hair floated in the ocean as I held onto her with dear life. I looked down to see her eye lids closed shut and her face pale. I don't know what happened to her, one second... she's scared shit and the next she's floating in the water with her dead weight. The sharks are surrounding us and I feel like have no chance, but to stay still and pray to God that he'll send the gigantic finned sharks away. As I prayed to God, I cried and cried. My tears left my face falling all over Angie's delicate face. I tried unsuccessfully to stop crying, but I couldn't stop replaying the memories of my family and my friends. I missed my parents, my bestie's Angie, Alex, and Taylor. I even missed school and even my worst enemies. I just couldn't believe Angie and I are the only two left. I wanted to be held by my mother and patted on the head my dad. I wanted to laugh with my besties, and make funny jokes about my puppy. I missed my puppy Lucky, who wasn't really a puppy. He's actually five years old, but he acts just like a puppy. I wished so badly that my life would go back to normal, but I had to face reality.

I closed my eyes and thought about all the happy moments in my life. I thought about how it would be okay if I died. Everyone I loved is up in Heaven any way. I'll be okay with everything if it goes down like that.

  Then before I could even cry anymore, I felt movement in my arms. Angie stared at me with opened eyes and said " Sandra why in the world are you crying?" Then I threw my head back and laughed for quite a while. "Were going to be eaten." I said with fear, but as I looked around I saw that the sharks went away. "We must have drifted for awhile." I said with realization.

  I stuck my head underwater and couldn't believe that the sharks were gone. I quickly thanked God for my life and Angie's. With a shared look with my best friend, we swam and swam to see that we were closer to the bizarre island than we thought. As Angie and I swam with an equal pace, I noticed that she'd been out for a long time. "Did you faint back there" I asked with uncertainty. "Yeah. I faint for a long time, almost like a mini coma." Angie said like no big deal. I then said five words to her "Please don't ever do that again." Then we both laughed feeling like sisters we always wanted to be. I wouldn't want to be going threw this terrible mess with anyone else, but her. She is truly my best friend and a sister I always wished I had.
