Storyboard Text

  • the water gets that much deeper, like im swimming in place
  • theres a girl screaming in the water, probably getting splashed or playing tag.
  • i try to stretch up and see farther across the surface, above the small waves making their way to shore. 
  • for maybe a quarter of a second a face is visible above the surface, a pair of eyes. wide eyes, blind with fear.
  • and there, about 30 feet away, between me and the beach, I see an arm flailing, fighting against the water.
  • between stokes, i catch freeze-frames of her going under, the water churning around her. her mouth wide open,choking and screaming fighting for air.   
  • sucking a deep breathe, i go in after her into the dark, my arms swinging around like a blind mans, searching for anything, a hand a foot, a head.
  • Thats when I wake up in my bed, gasping, my heart like a machine gun.
  • The dark of my room is a soft gray, nothing like the dead black of the water.
  • The girls name was maya, i didnt know her, but i was the last person to see her alive. i was the one who didnt save her
  • It takes me a few minutes to convince myself i've really escaped the nightmare.
