I’ve been in bed for hours watching Netflix. I’m watching Troll Hunters again, it’s so boring. I decide to get some food. I reach for my crutches. Clip! Clop! I stumble to the kitchen to get chips. I turn around to go to my room but my mum and dad are standing in front of me
“We are doing something fun tomorrow,” says Mum. “We are going to the beach.” “Oh no!” I think in my head.” Nothing can get worse.” Dad sees the sad look on my face. “There is a surprise at the beach. A huge surprise!” he says. I go to bed wondering how I could possibly have a good day if I can’t even swim.
My mum wakes me up early. As I clumsily get in the car I ask mum, “Do I have to go?” “Yes,” she smiles, ”Just wait to see your surprise.” I sadly drift off to sleep. “We are here”, my mum says. I rub my eyes and see Grandad standing next to the most amazing boat. I scream as loud as an elephant stomping. “Thanks Mum!” I move to Grandad as fast as I can. ‘Hey Brayden, do you remember that I’m a sailor? I thought that we could have a day out on the water in my old boat,” Grandad says.
I awkwardly and excitedly walk close to look at the boat. Grandad says, “Here’s is a seat for you Brayden. I hope you like it. One day you’re going sail this boat.” I love to be on the water because I can move swiftly across the ocean even though I only have one leg
The wind speed is unbelievable as I steer the fast, crazy, amazing boat over huge waves. Me and Grandad sail every weekend, I love seeing him so much. We are so close now. He has become my best friend.
My life is full of joy, happiness and sailing. The ocean is my home.
