Chapter 1: My Savior
In that moment, that sudden moment, it was a name I needed the most. My arms hanging by only the polls that lined around the ship. My body dangling over cold, bottomless, shark infested waters. Fresh tears felled down my cheeks, out of fear and a broken heart. My side in pain, of something I can't put in words.
Being a slacker in gym, was showing in my arms, when they were weakening by every second that passed by.
Zack, he heard me. Speeding footsteps rushed over to where I was. Worried, spread fast, as my grip was slipping. Before I know it, my brother's face was becoming small and dimmed. But hands grabbed me, in the nick of time. The sudden shock of it. I blacked out. But not missing those eyes that mirrored mine.
"Cody, hang on, you're going to be fine..."
Welcoming darkness, knowing well that he was near me, as it was to be when we were younger.
