The sand looks like it goes on forever as the water recedes and prepares to tower over me. I cannot run, there just isn’t enough time. The sunlight is obscured by the mighty wave, night has arrived too early. The darkness makes accepting my fate much easier, I have nothing else to turn to.
I know the wave will hit and probably kill me. All I can hope is that it happens quickly. I’m inside it now, before it has even touched me. It owns me and it will crush me. The peak of the wave curls in towards itself and I take a deep breath.
I will be out of oxygen by the time it actually reaches me.
