  • EXPOSITION
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • IT WAS AUGUST 2013, AND MY 14-YEAR-OLD SELF WAS ON A FAMILY VACATION IN ALBANIA, WHERE I ALSO LIVED AT THE TIME. ME, MY OLDER SISTER AND TWO OF OUR COUSINS DECIDED TO GO ON A BOAT RIDE. IT WAS SOMETHING WE DID QUITE OFTEN BECAUSE DAYS AT THE BEACH WERE ALWAYS LONG AND LACKED ENTERTAINMENT. WE ALWAYS USED A PEDAL BOAT AND EVERYONe TOOK TURNS PEDALING. EVERYONE BUT ME. I WAS THE YOUNGEST AND I ALSO HAD TAKEN MY APPENDIX OUT JUST THREE WEEKS BEFORE, SO I HAD NO STRENGTH TO HELP.
  • CLIMAX
  • WE WERE ENJOYING THE DAY WHEN SUDDENLY THE BOAT STOPPED, AND NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRIED TO PEDAL NOTHING HAPPENED. AFTER THE CURRENT MOVED US AROUND FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND THE BOAT KEPT GETTING LOWER AND LOWER, MY OLDEST COUSIN DECIDED THAT WE SHOULD ALL JUST DITCH ON THE BOAT AND SWIM BACK TO THE SHORE. IT WASN'T THAT FAR AND EVEN THOUGH I COULD STILL FLOAT, I DEFINITELY WASN'T ABLE TO SWIM BACK.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • AS THE BOAT KEPT GETTING LOWER AND LOWER, EVENTUALLY WATER BEGAN TO GET INSIDE. THAT IS WHEN WE ALL STARTED TO PANIC. EVERYONE JUMPED IN THE WATER, WHILE I STAYED ON TOP. AT THIS POINT THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO START PUSHING THE BOAT, AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DID. THREE KIDS AGAINST THE OCEAN.
  • RESOLUTION
  • AFTER A CONSIDERATE AMOUNT OF TIME, WHICH FELT LIKE FOREVER, SOMEONE NOTICED US AND THE BEACH POLICE WERE SENT OUR WAY. WE GOT ON ANOTHER BOAT TO GO BACK TO THE SHORE.
  • ON THE SHORT TRIP BACK, OUR HEARTS WERE STILL POUNDING AND YOU COULD SEE OUR CHESTS MOVING WITH EVERY HEARTBEAT. HOWEVER, THE CLOSER WE GOT TO THE SHORE THE LESS ANXIOUS WE WERE.
  • OUR PARENTS & FAMILY WERE ALL WAITING FOR US; ANXIOUS, SCARED AND SOME EVEN CRYING (MOM). THEY WERE MOSTLY WORRIED ABOUT ME, BEING THEIR FAVORITE, BUT THE IMPORTANT PART IS THAT EVERYONE WAS ALRIGHT. WE CONTINUED THE DAY AS WE DID EVERY OTHER DAY. THE NEXT MORNING WE GOT ON ANOTHER BOAT...
