Rosemarie noticed the light blonde haired girl's tears. She patted her on the back and helped her wipe up her tears.
"It's alright. It's ok," She spoke in a low soothing voice.
"What's your name?" She asked softly.

Perla noticed how everyone was throwing around introductions, so she decided to introduce herself as well.

My name is Perla Maddalena.
Perla stated in a silent but clear voice. She didn't have a very strong accent, but it was obvious that she was Spanish. Perla heard silent weeping and looked at a woman with blonde hair, so bright it almost seemed white. She couldn't exactly tell if it was dyed or not, but she decided that she would crawl over towards her and comfort her. Someone had already beat her to it, but she just went to her other side. When the other woman asked what her name was, Perla nodded, wanting to find out what her name was. But before that was shared, she wanted to know what was wrong.
Uh, are you okay?

Alexa looked to the girl trying to calm her. She had no clue how wrong she was, but for her sake, Alexa tried to fake a smile.
"I'm Alexa Swanson. I just turned 17 last month. This was supposed to be a relaxing break from my parents divorce..." She stopped and took a deep breath. Then turned to the medic. "Theoretically, if someone on board was about a month pregnant, would uh...would the baby be ok?" She could feel herself on the edge of tears again.

Keith sat in his own little space watching the newest member be pulled aboard. There was nothing he could do really. He put the key ring in his pocket and shifted in his seat. His ears caught the last bit of a question and his eyes opened wide.He shouldn't get involved, there was a medic on board, he'll handle it, wouldn't he? He shook his head and looked around the raft, wondering what everyone was thinking.

It's not that bad. At least we're not alone.

He put his head back and breathed a long slow breath, trying to relax a bit and forget what he heard. He almost wanted to fall asleep but he knew that they wouldn't let him sleep. He imagines what would happen and laughs to himself a bit.

Alexa nodded and took the sweatshirt. "Thanks." She put it on an it covered her enough that she didn't need the dress. Moving under the sweatshirt, she took the dress off and wrung it out. "I can change back once this dries." She laid the dress on the side of the raft, careful not to put it close to the water.

"Well, first we need to find land!" Rosemarie complained, throwing her hands up in the air. A bump came from the underside of the raft.

"What is that?"
THe raft suddenly flipped over.
"HOLY CRAP! IT'S A SHARK!"

Alexa handed the medic back the jacket just as something rubbed the bottom of the boat. Upon hearing the girl next to her scream about a shark, Alexa grabbed her dress and moved away from the edge of the boat. "Kill it! Punch it in the face! Something!"

"DOLPHINES HELP US!"

Roxi screamed, right before she tumbled over with the raft. She swam upwards, trying to tell herself not to panic, remembering from a health class in sixth grade about how you preserve more energy when you don't panic, or something like that... But it sure didn't help that the shark was there.


Her hands resurfaced, though her head did not. She had been dumped right under the life raft, and she couldn't seem to push it right side up, so she started to swim to where she assumed was right next to the life raft. Finally resurfacing, and gasping for breath as she did. Roxi opened her eyes, trying to ignore the painful sting as all the salt water rushed into them. She cursed under her breath, and headed to the life raft. She managed to flip it back over in the right direction, then climb on.

With chattering teeth, she looked around for anyone else who was struggling to get on the raft.

His view changed in a flash, from yellow to murky blue. The word, shark, flew through the air, the word scared him more than the animal. It was the thing that you didn't want to hear. Keith swum in place as the raft was flipped the right way up, he couldn't see the shark, a fin, not a shadow. It seemed it was gone but he wanted to be sure.

I'll have a look.

Keith puts his head under the water and looks through his blurred vision. He sees legs, water and some small fish, he also sees something odd. It was a shadow but of nothing he could identify. He begins swimming to the raft, keeping his head down, watching the shadow.

Rosemarie tried to calmly swim toward the raft, but she swallowed some water. She started to cough. Rosemarie sighed and reached into her pocket, looking for her inhaler, just to make sure it was there. She instead found her pocket knife and cut herself. Blood spilled out to the water.
"Oh. Crap," She muttered.

Ari

Ari who had just been sitting there quietly instantly starts to panic when she hears the word shark. A storm she could handle but a shark. That is one of the few things that terrify her. She let's out a yelp as the boat is flipped over not able to take a breath before she hits the water. She swims to the surface struggling not to hyperventilate and see's the boat being flipped back over. She quickly helps push it back up and grabs onto the side of it. Remembering someone saying to stay still. She takes in a shaky breath before looking around to see if anyone needs help.

Ari

Ari's eyes widen when she see's blood filling the water and sighs in relief when Grant grabs Rosemarie. Struggling to pull herself up into the raft. When she manages to get halfway up she looks back and sucks in a breath when she see's the sharks fin again.

When Perla heard the word, her eyes widened extremely wide. She's had a shark experience before, back when she wasn't afraid of water. When the raft flipped over, Perla tried holding onto the raft, but went flying into the water again. When Perla was underwater, she knew well enough to blow out of her nose and tried not being completely helpless. Her long hair was surrounding her head and face again and she could barely see. On the corner of her eye and through her hair, she seen blood and knew that was a really bad sign. The blood was very near Perla, so she used one leg and both of her arms to attempt at swimming away.

Perla pushed her hair out of her face and seen the shark very close to her. Perla opened her mouth and screamed as loud as she could underwater, causing bubbles to go up to the surface of the sea. She realized that she was screaming and covered her mouth, but she was running out of air... again. And she began feeling her consciousness slip away... again.

Ari

"Shit." Ari mutters when she see's a girl struggling in the water. All the sudden it stops and she dives out of the raft she'd just managed to get into and grabs the unconscious girl out of the water. She look's up and see's the shark a few feet away and quickly swims to the top holding up the girl for someone to take so she can get out of the water. Stopping herself from panicking. Why did it have to be a shark? She thinks to herself.

Perla woke up, shivering and her teeth were chattering. She seen the medic again and knew what he had to do, to revive her. Perla sat up and actually thanked him this time.

Thank you. I'll try not to drown again...
Perla noticed someone in the water beside them, a girl, most likely her savior. Perla smiled and helped her up.
Thank you too.
Perla smiled sweetly at her, but then noticed the medic was yelling at someone out in the water. It seemed as though he was leading the shark away from the crowd and she gasped. Perla dropped the quiet act for a good 5 seconds to yell at the man.

Please, get out of the water! We can all make it through this alive! Please just come back on the raft!
Perla remember back when she would've been the hero to save the man from the shark and she would've been the ideal swimmer. But those days were long gone, and she was definitely in a messed up situation. Perla tried crawling forward to yell at him louder, but she couldn't even apply the slightest pressure on her foot without it getting hurt. Perla felt a sharp pain in her foot and she slid back down onto her knees, holding her hurting ankle in pain.

Keith hears a girl yelling and looks around, the shark had disappeared underneath the water. He takes his chance and begins swimming towards the raft, knowing that it may come back.

She's right, we can make it through alive.

He swims faster, not looking back or down, he never wanted to see what would kill him. He reaches the side of the raft and throws his arms in, pulling himself into the raft as quickly as possible. He almost slips when he gets in, breathing quickly. Keith sits against the side of the raft, almost laughing at what just happened. He looks around at the others, slowing his breathing, he needed to be calm.

Rosemarie breathed heavily, trying to calm herself down. Her breaths became shaky. She started to cough loudly. She grabbed her bag and fumbled around. She coughed some more, and crumpled into a ball.

I can't breath. I'm gonna die, A oice echoed in her mind, making her even more nervous. She coughed even more, her vision was growing dimmer.
Someone. Please, help me.

Hazel pushed one of her friends out of the way.
"I need to get a new outfit, now that you spilled soda on it!" She declared, throwing the doors to the wardrobe open. She grabbed her rain coat, a blue shirt and denim shorts. She slipped on her red sneakers. Suddenly, the ship lurched.
"AG!" Hazel cried out. She was then pinned against the wall by a dresser. SHe had enough strength to stop it from crushing her, but she was still stuck.
"HELP!" SHe yelled out, trying to push it farther away from her.
HEr friend helped tug on the dresser. Hazel jumped over it.
"THanks," SHe huffed. SHe grabbed her by the arm and pulled her through the almost sideways ship. They got to the area where everyone was getting in life rafts. Suddenly, a person pushed her friend into the railing, splitting her head open.
"NO!" Hazel checked her heart beat.
Nothing.
"NO!" SHe cried out. The ship lurched some more. She pushed the person who had pushed her friend to the railing away. She wiped her eyes and got onto an empty life raft. It lowered into the ocean. She suddenly felt water trickle in. She saw a small hole.
"Ah hell!" She paddled towards another life raft, full of people.
She noticed a girl, coughing hard. SHe remembered that her friend gave her the inhaler she used because she didn't have a bag to put it in. She climbed aboard and remembered the way to use it.

Aston Young
Aston looked around, panicking. He didn't see his sisters, his parents, or the boat, but he could swear he heard voices. The last thing he remembered was to aviod the party he was supposed to go to, he decided to take a nap. When he woke up, he was up to his neck in water. he grabbed for his backpack, found it, slung it on, punched the window until it broke and jumped out. Now, he was in the middle of the ocean, thinking he heard voices."Maybe I'm finally going insane." He muttered to himself, treading water.

"As long as you stay still, they won't attack you. It will leave eventually, so grab the side of the raft and keep still. It will swim away. If you squirm, it will get scared and probably attack." He heard a male voice say. He perked up and began yelling.

"Hey! Hey! Over here! Help!" He yelled, hoping he could get a response. "Help! Help me, please!" He yelled again. He waited, and heard nothing. Sighing, he laid backwards and began back-floating. "At least I'm gonna die peacefully." He muttered, closing his eyes and sighing.

Hazel noticed a person waving their arms.
"Never mind, you can take care of it," SHe muttered, tossing the people the inhaler. She jumped off the raft.
"I hate swimming!" SHe yelled out as she swam towards the person. HE couldn't have been much older than her, probably by a year or two. She lifted my up by the arms, she was quite strong for her size and age. Hazel paddled back to the raft and lifted the man up. She jumped onto it and looked down at the girl coughing.

Rosemarie looked up weakly as an unfamiliar face loomed over her. SHe was handed an inhaler, which she quickly took.. Her asthma dialed down and she could sit up and talk now.
"Thank you," She whispered.

With more people on the raft, Keith had to pull himself in more to make room, his joints hurting from not being able to stretch his tall stature . He reached into his pocket and his eyes opened wide.

Where's my name?!

He pushes his hand deeper, the keyring, the room keys, and the torch still there, but no card. He checks the other pocket, nothing in it. He began to worry a little, if people didn't know his name what would they call him? He thinks back to school, the names he was called, he couldn't handle that again. Keith's smile disappears a little as he sits silently, watching everyone.

Lago sees that the man in front of him is fidgeting, and the smile he once had a second ago disappeared as he frantically searched into his pockets. "What could he be looking for?", Lago asked himself as he kept watching. He started feeling strange feelings the longer he watched the guy in front of him. The longer he watched, the more he seemed to be a little attracted to the guy. "Shit!", he mentally cursed himself. "What is going on?", he asked himself. "Why am I feeling this way?" Lago then was compelled to crawl over to him and ask if he was alright. He didn't know how he was going to help the guy, but he looked like he needed help so why not. "Hey, I'm Lago. Are you alright.. uh, I'm sorry I didn't catch your name."

Hazel shrugged.
"Welcome," She muttered. She moved her soaking hair out of her face so she could see.
Hazel starred at the ocean in silence.

"I hate this world, I really do,"

Rosemarie took a deep, long slow breath.
"Thank you," She coughed some more.
THe girl shrugged.
"Yeah, your welcome I guess," SHe watched as the other raft slowly sunk. Rosemarie sat in silence as she laid down and closed her eyes. She soon drifted off to sleep.
