Click click click was the only sound you could hear as me and my wife raced across the rustic creaky wooden floor of the ship. We raced past all the passengers blocking of us from our sweet destination, we slipped through every tiny crack we could find. We ran and ran till our legs felt numb and sore, suddenly my wife came to an abrupt stop causing me to almost collide with her, we had arrived. A warm sweet sensational smell drifted slowly passed our noses, leading us towards a room that shone as bright as the stars of the midnight sky.

The splashing of small boats could be heard from afar. People were boarding ships. My hopes were lifted as I thought that my wife had possibly boarded one of those small lifesavers. I swiftly darted towards a line of people eagerly waiting to board a ship. One by one they briskly dropped the small crowded boats into the water, but the line didn't seem to get any smaller. I didn't lose hope I stood in line hope in my heart until I realized the boats were gone not a single boat remained. I stood there in horror. My fearful thoughts raced around in my head.
