BOOK 2 OF THE ANCHOR SERIES
Waves makes for an unsteady sea, really.
Depending on the wind and the pressure, waves either lay peacefully against the sand, its current slow and steady, or crash onto the shore. There's no way to predict which way the wind will blow, there's no way to know how strong the waves will be.
When the wind blows hard, when the waves are aggressive, the only thing you can do is hold on and hope you'll be strong enough not to let go. Hope that although there's no way to predict how strong the waves will be, you'll always be stronger than them, hope that through everything, you won't drown.
Waves, they come and they go, and sometimes, when they hit the shore, they destroy sandcastles.
