Chapter 10: OF ALL THE WAYS I THOUGHT I WOULD GO, I CAN'T SAY THIS
(by Meg, added on 19 March 2012 06:25 AM)


The 2 girls were talking like nothing had happened. I had to warn them! I opened my mouth--and got a face full of saltwater. A huge rogue wave washed over the boat. I could feel it's overwhelmingly powerful tug making the boat list forward as it almost swept me away into the undertow. Then I was in the water, with the stern of the boat looming over my head. I could hear the other people yelling, but I couldn't make out what they were saying over the roar of the giant wave.

The video got paused again, and I was back at my desk. Oh god, was I even wet? Was the whole class staring at the figure in the back row who was suddenly drenched from head to toe? My head was spinning. It didn't matter.

"OK, there was a lot of irony in the way the boat capsizes, so we're going to watch that again--Meg, I'm going to show you what's happening." Ms. Dumass was at my desk before she had finished her sentence. She put this model boat in front of me, stood it up vertically and then flipped it over, just like the speedboat had done overtop of me. It felt wet. I couldn't tell if it was sweat or saltwater on my hands. And then she switched on the movie, and there was water.
