Chapter 11

 

We didn’t know if we could land somewhere. Suddenly, a big wave appeared. It turned the boat over. I was covered with water and I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t see the others or the boat.

I was carried to the beach by another wave. I was half-dead and it was difficult to move. But I knew that I had to get out of the water – I didn’t want to be hit by another wave. I didn’t want to be carried back out to sea. Sadly, I couldn’t get on my feet fast enough. Another wave came and I was in the water again. I couldn’t breathe for a while, but then the wave threw me back on the beach.

I got up and ran farther onto the land. I found a high rock and sat on it. There was no danger for me up there. I was saved.
