The changing waves
I remember that day very clearly. It was August, me and my sister were enjoying ourselves at the shore, the sun was shining and the sky was as clear and blue as the ocean. When suddenly all the sun was gone and there was a strong wind. I didn’t notice when that happened, but the ocean seemed to be moving back. I was so confused, that I couldn’t see the real disaster. My sister took my hand and took me with her, back to the car. Only then did I notice the huge wave that was approaching us. My sister quickly started the car and tried to drive away, but it was too late. The wave had hit the shore, and there was no end to it. It kept coming closer and closer when suddenly our car was under water. I couldn‘t believe my eyes, when I saw my unconscious sister. My heart was beating fast, I almost couldn’t see anything else, other than her. I could feel the water slowly filling the car. I had to try and wake up my sister. After countless tries, I gave up. She wouldn‘t wake up and the car was almost filled with water. I had to make a choice. In that moment, I had to save myself.
Until this day, I keep thinking about that moment. It‘s been two years now, I often visit that place where I last saw my sister. I still hope that some miracle happened and that she‘s still alive, but deep down in my heart, I know it‘s impossible.
