couldn’t see who it was, she was relieved to feel
the soft sand beneath her. Trembling, she lay on
the beach and looked up at the sky. Her parents’
terrified faces hovered above her. In the distance,
though, she noticed something peculiar floating
away. Tiny and blue, it disappeared into the fluffy
white clouds.
