The water passes by me fast. I was in an area blocked by rocks so the dolphins couldn’t swim away, but they seem very happy, and I don’t think they would. Suddenly, two dolphins come up and push me up and above the water. They push me up so high I feel like I am doing a stunt, and the dolphins are holding me up. It’s startling because I didn’t know it would be this fun. I see the pretty blue sky above me. There’s also a bright yellow sun that’s making the water shiny. It’s as if someone smeared lip gloss all over it. I look down, and get ready to go back into the chilly water. The dolphins act as if they’ve done this a million times, and I bet they have. We come to a stop, and I’m now slowly drifting through the water. It’s as if someone flipped a switch on the dolphin forcing it to slow motion. Now, we were dancing. I glance into the dolphin’s black eyes, they’re glancing back into mine. I take hold of his rubbery and big fins. All we do is just move our arms around. I look at the dolphin. It looks like it’s smiling, so I smile too. The dolphin gives me a kiss on the cheek, and someone takes a picture. Really, the dolphin just places its snout on my cheek. It felt like wet plastic.
I just treaded there, smiling with my lifejacket on, and my half-wet hair.
