I was caught by the tide instantly, being pull father and father out to sea. I did not know what to do or how to stop myself from being pulled deeper and father out. I couldn’t help but scream as my head surfaced for a second, but it was no use I was pulled under too quickly, my scream was muffled by the icy waters as it rushed in to my lungs. My only thoughts were this is what I get for not paying attention to anything, as I was pulled deeper in to the icy waters.
My body grew cold and numb, I closed my eyes as the darkness closed in around me, it was over. I felt my body stop suddenly. Did someone hear me? No, no one could have heard me; there was no sound when I screamed out. I felt another pull as I blacked out; it was too late for me now. I felt a weight on my chest as it pushed down, and out came the waters that filled my lungs.
My eyes open before me I saw a figure. At first, I thought it was my father but I soon say that it was not. He looked down at me and spoke “Good you’re okay my name is Will, remember me you will be seeing me again.” He smiled and seams to vanish into nothingness. I couldn’t understand what had just happen or if this person was even real but it didn’t matter. I felt great; as I thought I was okay, my parents came running up to me asking me what I was doing laying in the sand completely wet.
Well I didn’t say anything I was caught but they didn’t know what had happened to me and within a few days of getting back home I had forgotten about the whole thing. A few months passed and that day came to mind, I wondered if it was real maybe I knew the person it seemed like I did he seemed familiar somehow but I didn’t know maybe I had saw him somewhere before. That was the last time I had thought about it until that day
A few years had passed; I was now about twelve years old, no longer living on the small island I use to call home. Now I was living in Florida, I had all but forgotten about my life on islands.
It was a normal hot day in Florida some time during my middle school year. I had come home from school extra tired that day and went to sleep as soon as I got home. I woke up in the middle of that night looking for something to eat; I had not eaten anything when I had gotten home from school the day before, and was extremely hungry, because of it. After eating, I came back to my room, as I opened the door, I almost screamed out.
I thought I had seen someone but maybe I was wrong, I closed the door and as I turned back around there was someone there. Before I could yell he put his hand was over my mouth and spoke. “Don’t yell it’s me Will. Don’t you remember? I pulled you out of the water a few years ago saving your life. I’m going to move my had now please don’t yell I have to ask you a few questions” He moved his hand I stood in shock a million questions going through my mind how did he get here? How did he find me? Moreover, what does he want? However, the only thing that came out of my mouth was “That was a dream it never happened so this must be a dream to.”
