The story of Moon.
It was just a normal day at the beach for Jesse Norton. Swimming, sunbathing, sandcastle making with her baby sister. In the sweltering afternoon heat, Jesse felt as though she was melting.
“I’m just going for another swim, mum!” she called to her mother, who was trying to have a snooze but not succeeding, as her baby sister, Sophie was trying to climb all over the rug.
“OK.” came the muffled voice of her mother.
Jesse ran down the beach towards the glistening water. As she splashed into the sea, the cool waves lapped at her feet.Some familiar Orange-brown locks swung in the distance. It was her best friend Lily Hatton!
“Lily!” Jesse yelled. The head turned and Jesse found herself looking into a pair of brown eyes.
“Hi, girl! I didn’t expect you to be down here!” Lily exclaimed, surprised. “Have you got your board? Let’s go!”
The 2 girls had a great time in the sea, catching quite a few waves.
“Hey, watch this!” Jesse yelled at her friend, who was in the shallow waters, getting off her board. A huge wave was coming towards Jesse and she got ready to catch it. Suddenly she felt a pull behind her. The tide was too strong! She dug her feet into the sand, but it was too late. Her last word was “Help!” before the massive wave crashed over her, and she was swept back. Just as she was about to fill her lungs with water she bobbed up on the surface and found herself spinning around wildly. “I’m in a whirlpool” she realized. She thrashed about to try and free herself from the strong folds of water that were enveloping her. Please don’t let me die she thought as she was sucked down into the black hole beneath her feet.
