The world beyond ours

Amy has always been obsessed with the sea. The thrill of it crashing around your body, stimulating the senses. But she also thinks that the something as vast as the sea must hide secrets, but how big a secret can she handle.

1. Leaving it behind

" Can you see it now."

" What?"

" The rock."

" What rock?"

" The rock, in the middle of the ocean, not near any land." I said again, starting to become annoyed with my friends's inability to see it, because everyone else could.

" Wait, I think I see it now."

" Really?"

" No."

I frowned at her. She really didn't understand how important this was to me.

" Look, I'm telling you this because I'm going away. I should be back soon but I can't know how soon." I began. Not knowing quite how to tell my best friend, or anyone, what I was planning to do.

My best friend stared at me for a moment with a look of concern, then it snapped.

"No."

"Look, Jess..."

My friend jumped to her feet.

" NO, I WON'T LET YOU GO, I WON'T"

" Jessica, stop."

" NO, YOU CAN'T GO, THAT'S WHERE YOUR DAD WENT, WASN'T IT, BEFORE HE DISAPPEARED AND NEVER CAME BACK."

Jessica stared at me. She could see her sudden outburst had hurt me. She sat down and we both stared at the ocean, neither of us daring to break the silence.

" I just can't lose you." She finally said. I could understand that. It hurts a lot to lose someone you care about.

" You won't lose me." I said "I promise I will come back to you eventually. I just need to know what happened. Why he never came back."

More silence. Probably to think of a suitable response. After what seemed like forever she spoke.

" When are you leaving."

" Tomorrow, about noon."

She nodded along slowly and then she thought about it for a moment and then she asked me a very important question.

" Amy," She said

" Yeah"

" Have you told your mum." 

" No, She never let me go if she knew, I need you to break the news to her tomorrow, after I am gone." 

" I CAN'T DO THAT!!!" She shouted, shocked.

" Oh, please." I begged. " You are my very best friend and you love me and you said you always do things for me." I did my very best at doing an impression of her whenever she wants half my kit kat at lunch.

That seemed to cheer her up a bit. "Alright then, I'll tell her."

" Thank you so much." I smiled at her " Now lets just try to enjoy our last night together."

And with that I pulled a kit kat out my pocket and we sat their, staring at the sunset, eating our kit kat together and trying to treasure the last night we would see each other for a long time.
