Finish the story begins with: “Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life.”

She couldn’t believe what had just happened. She survived! The others didn’t, but luckily, she did.

It was their holiday of a lifetime. They went on a cruise for their thirtieth wedding anniversary. They admired Gaudi’s creations in Barcelona, the pure scale of Rome’s Coliseum, stunning coastlines and the beautiful French Riviera. The food was delicious and they met some other couples on the ship.

But then the wind changed dramatically and the storm came suddenly. They were ship wrecked. Chaos pursued as people tried to save themselves. Not everyone had a life jacket. She was fortunate to have one. Her husband was too late, he drowned and was eaten by a shark in front of her eyes. That was terrible!

Arriving at the beach with the other survivors, she reflected on her life. Someone was watching over her. She kissed the ground. Then she wept for her husband. (149 words)
