I walked into an alien world, for the past 18 years all I had ever known was those four white walls and the different nurses that came in with those horrible pills.
“Where am I?” I asked passers-by who hurried to get away from me.
So confused to where I was and who I was. I could see the sea, the smell of it, the feel of the wind through my hair, the wind I had missed all my life. Is this what life truly is? No routines. No schedules. Not being locked to a bed for twelve hours a day.
I was walking through a dock when I soon came to realise the beauty and majesty of life I had missed. Looking into the sapphire waters and seeing dozens of colours materialise and dance with one another I regretted all the times I tried to take the easy way out. I wondered if there’s any more places like this in the world, this could just be the start to my new life, considering if they don’t find me.
The waters were still and calm and people walked passed showing no admiration to the dazzling diamonds beaming off the surface. All my life I’ve never done anything crazy, I wanted to start my new life with something daring and exciting. I walked around the docks looking for that crazy thing to do until I came upon an orange funny ring.
“LIFEBOUY” it said. Eighteen years doing the same boring thing I wanted to claim what was rightfully mine, to live again. I took this lifebuoy of the gate, put my body through it until it was secured around my waist and jumped into the diamonds and the sapphires. And it felt amazing!
