Thomas: Leaving

This was the most amazing adventure ever. Not a thing in the whole world was like it. But now it was over. I looked over at all my friends dancing and singing and having a good time. To be honest, I felt nostalgic. My eyes look to the ground as I think about my dad, Vand.

"Dad, I don't know if you can hear me, or if I'm just going crazy. But I want to say that I miss you. And I can't wait to see you again some day, in the ocean. Where all life begins."

Then, an idea crosses my mind. A dangerous one, but an idea nonetheless. I stand up straight, and begin walking towards the ocean. I don't say goodbye, I've never been good at them. But I take one last look at my friends, and standing there is Soren. I wave, and he waves back. Then I turn and run, crying the whole way.

Eventually, I get to the ocean and hear the rocking waves and see the blue surf.

"Dad, I'm here!" I say, then I leap into the ocean, not knowing where my next adventure lies.

The End
