“Hot, hot, hot” I said as I tiptoed along the sand. My feet were burning like I was on fire. I had my beach shorts and summer t-shirt on. The temperature today was as high as you could ever think of. Sweat beaded down my face. I needed more sunscreen.
As I walk towards the groyne I hear my best-friends Tui, Hossanah and Jasmine yell out to me. I turn around and replied back to them.
“Hi,” they yelled as they walk near me, “Would you like to build a sandcastle with us.” “Yeah sure,” I say.
"Isn't it a good time to go for a swim?" I say to my besties. We start to pack our things and head over to the sea. As we get up we suddenly see something strange and white pop out of the sand. “Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!” my friends and I scream like tiny babies crying. “What is it?” I whisper to them. “It’s a hand,” one of my friends say in a cracking voice.
The fingers then start to move and as we get nearer and nearer the hand crawls closer to us. After a while we see another hand pop out of the sand. We yell and scream as loud as we can but no-one can hear us. One of my friends ran away because she got scared. There were 3 of us left and none of us wanted to go closer to the 2 hands. We were all frightened.
“You go first,” I say to my friend Hossanah. “No, because it might jump up and get my face,” he said in a horrified way. “It wouldn't. I promise. Now, come on, go on, go on,” I tell him promisingly.
Hossanah then starts to walk close to the 2 hands. He turned around and cried.
“I don’t want to go!” he cries to us. He then runs away.
“Okay your turn, Tui,” I said. “No way I’m going home, see yah.” she says.
I then start to shiver a little and then I see both hands disappear back into the sand. “Well that was freaky. I better go home,” I thought to myself.
Today was the scariest time of my life. When I left for home I started to think, “how did those hands pop out of the sand?” I didn't want to go back to the sea ever again. When I got home I told my parents all about it but they thought that I was crazy. So I went straight to bed after a weird and unexpected day.
