1. Sailing The Seas

 

 

On 22nd January 2013, sitting on a small, wooden boat I shared with my close friend, Victoria, we both chatted and laughed on the way to England. “What would you do if we both landed on a desert island far out?” Victoria asked seriously. I laughed jokingly, “Tori, don’t worry, we will be fine. Look, the weather’s perfect for sailing and we all will arrive in England safely,” I answer Victoria’s curious question.  “We could have taken a plane! The seas between Ireland and England are very....” she said, trying to find the correct word to describe the way she was thinking. “Vicious,” I finish her sentence. “That’s the word! We probably will get killed; we’re in a tiny wooden boat with hardly anything for goodness’ sake!” Victoria moaned. “Don’t fret, we will be fine. Trust me.” I told Victoria, giving her a hug. “That’s the problem, I don’t trust ya,” she replies. I gasped and pulled away dramatically. “I thought we were best friends,” I pretended to cry, struggling not to laugh. “Well, best friends do crazy things but I don’t trust you on this idea. This all was your idea!” Victoria complained, playfully punching me on the arm.

We both joked for a couple more of minutes, until suddenly; we felt something nudge the boat backwards. “What was that?” I panicked, trying to find out what it was. Then a huge wave formed from the water, and the wave hovered overhead for a short while before crashing down on us. “Jade!” Victoria screamed before I lost her. The wave completely destroyed the little boat and Victoria and I were stranded in the middle of nowhere. Gravity pulled me underwater but I managed to keep my head above the sea level. “Victoria!” I called, trying to search for Victoria but she was nowhere to be seen. “Come on, I’m not joking!” I shouted, thinking that Victoria was hiding in the sea, trying to scare me. I took a deep breath, then I looked under the water and there she was, her eyes closed and her body limp. With all of my strength I had left, I swam down and tried to rescue Victoria. I managed to pull her out of the sea and her head above the sea, her skin was very pale but I still could feel a heartbeat.

I grabbed a wooden plank from the damaged boat with my free hand, and I pulled myself and Victoria onto the plank. The plank was huge, if you were wondering. I held onto the plank and Victoria, hoping that the waves of the sea would drift us to land nearby. I could see a small land far away, at least 30 miles away. That would take about two to three hours if we drifted with the sea, but it would be quicker if I ‘helped’ move the plank along. I desperately kicked my legs in the water, barely holding onto the plank. Victoria had started coughing after five minutes, showing that she was fighting to live. That just made me even more determined to get to land faster. I kicked furiously, and it worked. The land soon came closer and closer. But after a half an hour of furious kicking, I had no more energy to kick anymore. I couldn’t even hold on anymore. I used every last bit of my energy to pull myself on the plank and let the waves push us to land slowly.
