The monster in the river

The monster in the river

 

I am on a journey on a river. My paddle is stuck between two rocks on the ground of the river. Even after several tries I can not free it.

My little brother is calm and he takes pictures of me. I shout: “Stop it, you can at least help me!” He is just laughing. I try to free my paddle again, but it is impossible.

Suddenly, the boat is shaking. As if something tried to let it capsize!  “Stop it, Julio!” My brother stops his laughing and says: “It was not me! It must have been a wild animal, maybe a crocodile?” I am panicking. What if it tries to kill us? I am trying to free the paddle once more.

Finally, it is free! As fast as I can I start to row. Then we reach the bank. We are safe and my brother is laughing again. “There were no monster!” I shove him into the river.
