I shook my head. "Being underwater doesn't sound like such a bad idea." I muttered, still trying to stand and get away from the water. If those rapids, river, whatever you call that gets even higher then I don't want to be there when it does.
Crawling (or trying to anyways) I managed to get about two, three feet away from the water! A futile effort, I know. It was worth a shot. No, actually it wasn't worth a shot.
Why in the world did they plan a field trip now?! And in this case with the river about to rise.
It was getting dark and cold, with some energy left, I managed to stand up and stumble farther into the forest. Not too far, just somewhere close, but not too close. I could still hear it of course.
