As I pulled the main sheet, my hands became sore and blisters appeared on them. The wind was picking up, which caused the waves to become bigger and stronger, which made my sailboat rock back and forth. The waves splashed on my face, and into my eyes. The saltwater in my eyes made them sting as if jellyfish tentacles were wrapping around them.
I felt my body move, and then all of a sudden I felt something cold. A shiver rushed up my spine, which made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Goosebumps immediately spread across my body. When I looked down at my feet, I realized I was in the water! I suppose a giant wave had knocked me off. I was drifting away from my boat.
I swam and swam, but it was no use, the current was too strong and was pulling me away. Rain had started to pour down on my face and the gray clouds nearby eventually covered the sky. A tear trickled down my face, dripped into the water, and created ripples that had spread far across the water and soon disappeared.
