I didn't know what to think. My stomach cramped and twisted inside of me. A few seconds later Natali's eyes drifted toward the zig-zagging shape, her face growing pale with uncertainty.
"Lia! Paddle; fast!" she called, already ziplining towards the shore. Without me. I stared back at her, and then I sunk underwater, having almost being drowned by a humungo-wave, then the shark dove under, noticing that my head was bleeding. Or so I thought..I blacked out shortly afterward but the main thing that I remember was being on top of the shark's back, torpedoing towards the seashore, my board clutching my ankle tightly. Natali saw me unconcious in a tidepool, and as I awoke, I saw the shark slowly swimming deeper and further away from us. I got up searching for it but then fell back down into the sands, which were being moved by the tides. Natali clung to my arm. "Blood," she said. "What?!" I asked, shocked. "You're bleeding. Did the shark hurt you?" I shook my head. "No; it helped me. It drove me u ptocthe shore. I cut myself on the reef, and I rode it back to shore..." I replied, staring back into the ocean. "That's ridiculous. I think you're hallucinating, Lia." said Natali, logically. "Yeah, Natali. Say what you want. But I know, what I saw. Because last time I checked, I was the one out there, while my best friend raced upto shore without me," She frowned. I detached my board strap from my ankle and ran up to my house, my surfboard held tightly under my arm. "Lia!" Natali called, but she was no match for my speed. The sun set easily across the horizon, and the first thing that I did when I got home was research more on sharks. I want to know what really happened out there....
