I woke up to find myself surrounded by blue, sleeping on the bed of an ocean. I opened my eyes and saw rays of sunlight floating through the layers of water. My hair was mixing in with the seaweed already. I felt my lungs heavy as if the voids were filled with stones and wondered why I was not floating. As I tried to move, I felt a heavy weight attached to my feet. I panicked and took it off and tried to reach the surface for dear air. As soon as I reached the waterline I inhaled all the air that I could possibly take in at once. My lungs had never felt this grateful for the sweet air.

Now as I looked around, I saw a boat very conveniently placed nearby. I recalled that it is mine since it had my initials. But only after climbing in it did I recall how I had drove it myself to the middle of nowhere. I had ruined my attempt.
