I wiped out everytime I tried to stand up on my board and what was really embarrassing was that John was cute and very hot. I couldn't show him any of my moves that I had just learned to do. I finally gave up and went to sit on the shore. John also followed me in and came and sat by me.
I swear, I could surf. You can ask any lifeguard on this beach. I told him.
Okay, let's see. I'm going to ask him. He said and pointed at Matt.
Okay, let's go talk to Matt. I said.
John got up and went over to Matt and ask if I could surf.
Yeah, she was an amazing surfer, before what happened. Matt said.
I could read lips pretty well and Oakley had always told me that my occupation should be easedropping on people. I laughed at what I was thinking about and was running my fingers through the sand when Matt and John walked up.
Samantha, your smiling! Matt said.
Yeah, I was thinking about Oakley and how he told me once that my occupation should be easedropping. I told them.
You were always good at that. Matt said.
The clouds were begining to cover the sun and it looked lime it was going to storm. I noticed that someone was running towards us. It was Alice.
What's wrong? I said.
Oakley, he is waking up. She said.
Okay, bye guys. I said.
I grabbed my board and started running towards the car that Alice drove. Once we got to the hospital, I had to dry off completely because they didn't want any water in the floor. I ran into Oakley's room once I was completely dry.
Oakley! I squeeled.
I ran over and to him. He looked at me with confusion.
Oakley? Do you know who I am? I said.
He looked at mom and dad and then answered me.
No, I'm sorry, I don't know who you are. He said.
My knees buckled out from under me and I fell to the floor. I bursted into tears. This was the worst thing ever or at least next to it. Alice and Jasper helped me up and then walked me out to the hallway. I sat in a chair and hugged my knees up to my chest. I asked Alice for my car keys and she gave them to me. It was raining when I left the hospital building. I got in my car and drove to the beach. No one was there. I sat in the wet sand in the rain and just cried or at least I felt like I was. I couldn't tell because of the rain pouring down my face. I just stared at the waves getting bigger and bigger. I decided that I should go surfing. I didn't care if it was dangerous or not. I knew Oakley was okay and he would be surfing within two weeks at the most. I ran and got my surfboard and then just stood at the edge of the water for longest. I started running for the waves and then paddled out to the breaking point of the waves. I caught my first wave and failed, I wiped out again but I knew that couldn't stop me. I caught a second wave and stood up. I was surfing again! I couldn't believe it. I started catchig every wave possible and doing all my tricks that I had tried the week or two before. I caught the best wave and I got a barrel. I rode inside of the wave! When I came out of it, I had my hands above my head. I was so happy it was amazing. Icouldnt believe what it felt like to surf again. I was smiling, laughing and crying all at the same time. The rain had slackened up some and I noticed two figures standing on the beach. I surfed one last wave in and then went to see who the two mysterious figured were. I walked up and noticed that it was Matt. I ran upto him and gave him a big hug.
I did it! I yelled as I was jumping up in down.
Way to go! I knew you could do it. Didn't I tell you, you can do anything? Matt said to me.
Yeah, oh my word I'm so happy words can't describe it. I said.
Oakley's good then? He ask.
Yeah, well he remembers everyone but me. I told him.
Samantha, I'm sorry. He said.
Yeah me too. I said.
I then noticed that John was standing right next to Matt.
Hey John! Sorry, I didn't mean to ignore you. I said.
No problem. So Matt didn't explain that you were like pro. John told me.
Haha I'm not, trust me far from it. I said. Sorry, but I can't stay and talk. The surf is calling my name!
I took off running into the waves. I surfed for about 3 more hours and then I went and told Alice,Jasper, Mom and Dad.
Before I told anyone, I had to go see Oakley. I was the only one there as in his room not in the whole hospital. When I walked into Oakley's room he was asleep. I pulled up a chair and sat in it until he woke up. I ended up drifting to sleep every now and then but I would wake up from a dream.
It was a peaceful dream sorta. I was surfing and I got caught underwater but it was peaceful. Like I could breathe and everything but it was quiet and peaceful. Nothig was around me, all of my cares were gone. Nothing absolutely nothing was in my mind. I woke up gasping for air. I looked over at Oakley and he was staring at me.
Sorry, did I wake you up? I ask him.
No. You okay? He ask.
No. I told him.
Do you need a doctor or what's wrong? He asked concerned.
Oakley, do you know who I am? I ask.
My sister. He replied.
Yeah, but what do we do every morning before anything? I ask.
I don't know. He said.
Am I just your sister or do you have a twin? I asked.
A sister. He said.
I accidentally let atear slip past my eyes.
Samantha, I'm sorry. I'm trying to remember things, really. He said.
I know, it's not your fault. It's mine. I said.
You didn't do anything. He said.
Really? I'm the one who made you get up that morning and go surfing or fishing whatever we did. I said.
It's not your fault. He said.
It is my fault. No one sees that but Garrett. I said.
Garrett thinks it's your fault? Oakley ask furiously.
Yeah, and he has every right to, too. I said.
It's not your fault. I was driving. He said.
No, I made you get up and go with me. I made you get out of the house before school. I have to go sorry. I said.
I hugged him goodbye and went to me car.
Even though the sun was setting, I went to the beach anyways. I sat there just on the sand alone and thought about everything again. I heard someone walking up behind me but I didn't pay attention until the sat down beside me.I looked over and it was John.
Sorry family is waiting on me, sister from college is home!
