|I grew up a city girl from another kingdom. It was a large city on the side of the ocean. My father was a sailor for the military. He brought home many coins which allowed my mother and I to live a relaxed lifestyle. I helped my mom with what I could, but my favorite hobby was reading. We had a library that had all the books I bought from our local library. The shelves lined two of the walls, filled with adventurous books. My favorite was the one of the servant who fell in love with her bear master, they worked through their differences and fell happily in love forever and ever.|
Father would take me out on his boat every few months. At one point, when I was sixteen, I had just finished a book about a ship and a whale. I asked him if he would take me out on his boat (so I could imagine what happened, but he didn't have to know that). He took me out a few weeks later. But nobody knew what would happen next.
The day was sunny at home. He asked me if I still wanted to join him. Of course I did. It was just me and him out on that boat. The waves were a bit rocker that normal, but it was great in those few hours. Later, I noticed the horizon getting darker. I tried to tell him, but he said the wind would blow it the other way. I believed him at first but the darkness kept growing, the wind picked up, and the waves started to grow, crashing against the boat. By the time he realized the weather was coming, it was already too late. Father tried to turn his boat around, but the waves crashing against the boat and the wind wouldn't allow it. He yelled out to me to move the sails. I stood there frozen, terrified. I didn't know what to do, I had never driven his boat - or any boat. When the rain came, the wind grew stronger and the waves taller, eventually trampling our boat. I fell over board, watching my dad with his hand out to catch me, but failed. I lost my breath trying to figure out which was was up or down. I drowned.
