Just as she was on the verge of giving up, a strong arm looped round her neck and secured her head well above water as the strong and well-built teenager helped her up shore. “Thank You, thank you so much young man, I thought nobody would risk their lives and save me in the raging waters… ” She thanked the teenager profusely
as she went down
into a peaceful darkness.

A story about a teen hero by Kai Yi
Water charged into her nostrils severing all oxygen supply from her lungs, as another gush of wave hit her. With all her might, she thrust her head upwards, desperately trying to gulp in the air. Her lungs were screaming out for air. “Help… help…” her voice trailed off as she sank under the water surface again. Her arms were flailing wildly in the air, desperately hoping to get someone’s attention. With every passing second, she was losing consciousness. She was going to lose her life!!! She was trembling with cold and fear in the deep waters, as beads of perspiration trickled down her forehead, her heart was hammering wildly against her chest. After a few long minutes, she thought with terror and anxiety, "What should I do? I do not think anybody would save me. It’s getting dark now and the waters here are so deep. The waves are strong too. I do not think anybody would risk their lives. What should I do?" She thought desperately.
