My Friend the Ocean - by Simon Dunne

The Ocean is my friend. I swim in it and it makes me feel good. I like to bring my board with me sometimes but the ocean doesnīt like that. It sends waves to punish me. I donīt like being punished. But sometimes the waves are my friends too. Sometimes they even let me stand on their backs and ride. I like to look down from their backs into the friendly ocean. The water is clear, like it isnīt even there. I can see the oceanīs other friends riding on the backs of the same waves. Big groups of fish going to school. Sharks making sure they get there on time. Spotted sting rays that look like theyīre flying through the water with their wings. The sting rays are not my friends. They sting me. Then I have to leave my friend the ocean. I have to go see Mr. Pain. I donīt like Mr. Pain, he hurts me. But a bucket of boiling water burns away Mr. Pain. And my skin. I think I need some new friends.

The End.

Face it. You are a gifted writer. Keep it up. I'd pay good money to read a book of travel adventure from you any day.
