“ Come on Marissa tell us! ”
“ Yeah! We're you're friends you can tell us anything! ”
“ You were missing for 3 years out at sea! How did you survive!? ”
I sighed and staired out the window. It's been a month since I got back. No one believed my story. The officers and the navy told me I was disoriented. That what I saw, what helped me, wasn't what I thought. I spent 3 years in a under water cave with air pockets. I saw beautiful things. If I had a choice I'd go back. My friends want me to tell them what happened to me. They always interageted me. But I was tired of being called a lier.
“ Earth to Marissa! Hello! ”
My one friend said as she shook me.
“ WHAT! ” I yelled in annoyance.
“ Just tell us! We won't call u a lier. ”
“ Yeah we want to hear your side. ”
“ Won't you tell us please! ”
They all looke at me with pleading eyes.
I had it. They've been begging me for three days now.
“ No you won't! I've told my story over a thousand times and no one believes me! Not even my own parents! ”
I turned my face trying to hide my tears. But, my one friend Katie turned me around and looked me in the eyes.
“ We know you've been threw a lot. But we havnt herd your story. Not your side. Our parents wouldn't let us watch the news and told us that you were just losing your mind. But we know you. You one of the smartest kids in school. Your not the type to make up stories. ” She told me as she gave me a smile.
They all looked at me with smiles.
I felt tears well up in my eyes. My sight became all blurry and watery. I cryed hard and but my face in my other friend's, Stephany's, chest. They all huged me. I love the comfort, it felt so warm. I pulled away wiping my eyes.
“ Ok I'll tell you. But tomorrow, I'm exhausted. ”
Their eyes lit up with joy and tackled me with hugs.
“ You guys~”I struggled to say under their weight.
But then we all laughed.
Everyone started getting their stuff together.
“ You better keep your promise Missy! ” Said my one friend, Brandy, while messing up my hair.
I giggled and stuck out my toung. “ We'll see. ”
Then they all glared at me.
“ I was only kidding. ”
Then they all smiled and headed towards the door.
I leaned against the stair well and waved.
They all waved back then left.
I walked over to the front door and closed it. I turned around and put my back against it. I slid down and sat on the floor. I sighed hevely and put my hand over my heart. I missed him so much. I only wish I had freedom like him. I wish I could spent my life with him traveling the world.
I felt my face heat up and I smiled just picturing his face.
I never wanted to come back. I was found by a research team that studied under water caves. I hated that they made me leave but I left a note on that wall before I left. It was my address. I hoped he'd come find me and take me away from this awful place.
But no such luck yet. My house is on a cliff right below the ocean. Every now and again the water would rise and it would be practically outside my back door.
I decided to go to bed now so I can at least see him in my dreams.
I started to stand up and headed up the stairs to my room.
