Fuck it, I'm bored, so let's do this.>You wake up to coughing up copious amounts of saltwater, noting a weirdly painful throb in your chest.>"Anon, wake up.">Your eyes open to the sight of your sister's head blocking the Sun in front of you.
"Sis? What the hell happened? Did we get rescued?">"No, you idiot. YOU got rescued." She points at herself, triumphantly. "By ME.">You look around you, noticing the stretch of beach is sandwiched between thick jungle and the vast ocean.
"So... where are we?">"What are you asking me for? I'm not the nerd here.">You've just about had enough of her shit.
"Will you just walk me through what happened, please? I can't remember anything after the cruise ship...">She sits down on the sand beside you, suddenly looking slightly remorseful.>"It got hit by a big wave, or something. You hit your head pretty bad.">That explained the soreness of your head, that you had just now noticed.
"A-and then?">"You fell overboard," She regains her smugness. "and I went after YOU instead of my backpack!">"My laptop was in there, so you owe me a MILLION favors."
"Okay, sure, thanks. What about mom and dad?">You notice her looking away, apparently uncomfortable.>"They're... fine. I saw them escape."
"What? How? They just left us?">"NO! I mean... that's not how it happened...">Seeing her unease, you decide to change the subject.
"Whatever, first things first. How did we get here?">"I... swam."
"You just... swam? Dragging me along? That's... impressive, actually.">You could swear you saw a blush forming on her face.>"S-shut up. It wasn't far.">The way you woke up was starting to make sense now.
"So, judging by this salty aftertaste in my mouth... I'm guessing you almost didn't make it.">No answer.
"Sis... was I... drowning?">"NO!" There's no mistaking it now, that's a heavy blush. "Well... maybe a little.">She stands up, putting on an aura of very shaky confidence.>"I took responsibility, okay? I resuscitated you."
