"I can't steer the ship!"
"Come on! Let me try!" I wake up and immediatly hear screams.
"Everybody, keep calm and put on you life vests!" the captain says through the speakers.
"Mom, what's happening?" I ask my mom in my head.
"Nadja! You have to put on your vest!" My dad screams to me. I can tell he's panicking. I'm not worried though. If I die now it will be a much less painful death than dieing in a month of fever. But I do as he says and put on my lifevest. I go up to the deck. I see an island straight ahead....and a big rock. "Well, at least its not an iceberg." I say to myself. I decide to take my chance. I hold my nose, stand on the tip of the boat railing and jump into the water.
The salt water sting my eyes when I open them. The water feels cold on my skin. I see the island and start to swim twords it. Someone grabs me from behind. It's my dad. He swims to land and we get there much faster than what I would If I had swam alone. I gasp for air nevertheless as small gulps of air now and then did not satisfy my lungs. Eyes burning, body shivering, and fever rising, I stand up and look around. Palm trees. Sand. Flowers. That's all. "You okay sweetie?" My dad scares me. "I think my fever increased, but otherwise, I'm fine" I say. Then I feel a little bit dizzy. "Dad? I think I need some water." Then I collapse.
When I wake up, I see medics standing ovr me. "Dad?" "Right hee sweetie. How are you feeling?" "A lite better. But I still see fuzzy." The give me a cup of water and I gulp it all down. "It looks like we found something over here," it sounds like a lady's voice. I turn my head to look and see that she is holding a flower. It's beautiful. Well, tons of crew member rush forward to see. "We found it! We found the cure!" I hear. The cure to what? I think. "Sweetie, you're going to be cured!" I laugh out loud. "Dad, you always nk ow how to make me laugh!" "I'm serious." "Really?" I smile. I'm going to be okay. Suddenly, I want to stand up and dance.
