After two months of preparation, she began to cross the river. She asked the people in her town although some of them she barely even knows to help her push the boat as she set sails. As the boat moved away from the shore, she felt really proud and yelled to her kin “I’m finally crossing the ocean!” She took off with flying colors.
Sometimes during sailing, she stood up on the boat to see a clearer view of her destination which led the boat rocking. She was really mad that the boat was not steady. She hit the boat using the paddle every time it went rocking.
She began paddling and paddling without rest. Beating the boat out of temper until the boat got broken. She noticed the boat got a little hole and began sinking and sinking. The boat gave up and was not capable of the journey anymore. The boat sank deeper into the ocean and disappeared. The little girl was deluged and drenched in water swimming back to shore in her town.
All she has now is a pair of paddles.
