3. Found, but still lost.

I am swimming in the sparkling ocean. Mum calls "Why are you swimming away?" But before I know it the currents pull me into the dark depths of the other, never to be discovered again. I call for help, the all you can hear is burbling as disgustingly salty water fills up my mouth and takes control of my life.

 

When I finally wake up with a start, I notice I am completely surrounded by trees of all sizes and colours. At first, I think I am in my own version of Heaven, until Joseph's face comes into vision.

"About time." He grins, making me blush again.

My hand automatically reaches to my forehead, where I suprisingly find the softness of what could only be cotton.

"A bandage?"

In answer, Joseph points to a pile of goods, not many, but at least it's enough for a few days. Among the cluttered pile, stands a red box, flung open, to reveal bandages and plasters. There is also a pair of scissors which seem to gleam mischieviously in the little sunlight we are receiving under the thick, green canopy.

I stand up, probably too quickly as the darkness threatens to take over again, but I steady myself and slowly, as to not cause any more damage to myself, begin to straighten up. I wildly look around, only to see more trees. "I'm going onto the beach." I say.

 

When I burst out of the wilderness and onto the sand, all I can see is rocks, rocks, rocks and some kind of bird screeching ahead, clearly not happy at the suddenness of my clumsy arrival.
