Piranhas

They were all around her, circling, watching, and prolonging the suspense. She looked around and around for an exit. Water was everywhere. The shore wasn't far, but just far enough. Afraid to move a muscle, she called out. Nobody listened. They were running and screaming in panic. Blood. Blood everywhere. The water tinted a faint maroon. One brushed by her leg. Screaming, she jerked in the opposite direction. There went the switch. They attacked; biting, tearing. Searing pain rushed though her, a thousand deaths at a time, like everyone else around her. Her nerve endings raw and bloodied, she figured there was no point anymore. Starting to run for shore, she quickly tripped in the water. Gulping and coughing and choking, she continues to try. So close… People are being rescued. Just in sight. Please! She cries. They don't hear her. She trips again, and the pain starts in her abdomen, another on her left arm. Everywhere, everywhere she hurts. Make it stop. Coughing up blood, she almost there. A foot of water left. Crawling up in the sand. It sting so bad. God make it stop. Finally to shore, she collapses. Turning her head from side to side, people are dying. The horror. It can't be real. It's all starting to blur. Maybe it's a dream? The pain is sharp and continuous. She didn't think it was possible to hurt this much. Will anyone help her? Trying to scream again, she realizes her voice is gone. The world is darker still. Slowly, slowly disappearing. Almost gone, she sees a face. Who? He's calling to her. Stay with me! Wake up! You're gonna be fine! Quieter and quieter. Peaceful almost. He sounds a little frantic.. She wonders why? Soon, she doesn't know what she was even thinking of. It's all dark, the pain fading. Thank god. I'll just sleep… a moment…
