Dolphins to water

[You are my sunshine, my only sunshine…]

I held my breath. It was time. I saw the trust in your eyes when I found the way inside. All of you were ready for this ride. You followed me, like you always do. The sun beat down on us as we dove in, ready to explore the cave within. Like dolphins to water, without a doubt. That bright turquoise hue was meant to illuminate you.

[…you make me happy when skies are gray]

I didn’t have a clue that inside that deep blue was actually pain there waiting for you. Waiting for us. We were trapped. Caught in the horror of life to death. Frank was the last to dive in, the last in line, and the first to die. The blood seeped from the slashes on his chest and I watched as he took his last breath. He was family, you see, my cousin’s father; following in the footsteps of his own daughter, searching for adventure, searching for life but destined to pay the price. Without a doubt, like dolphins to water.

[You’ll never know dear how much I love you.]

Now we’re here, trembling in fear, huddled in corners. On repeat. Caught in a time loop of my mistakes, trapped in the cave we‘d claimed. Trying to retreat just to experience defeat. We dive, he dies. We dive, he dies. We dive, we die.

[Please don’t take my sunshine away.]

Shouldn’t I have felt it? Shouldn’t I have known, that we would all die in a wet cave of stone?

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves. I ...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

salma elsamy: it's really awesome , and I really like the whole idea of the story . I also love how simple the vocabularies because English is my second language and the simplicity of the story is great for me . And I will definitely buy it if it's published.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

warehalleyr: I usually have a difficult time staying interested in books long enough to actually finish them. This story however, had me so caught up that I'd only stop to sleep at 3am when my body would no longer allow me to keep my eyes open.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!
