Unconscious Water.Unconscious10 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
That’s the first thing I remember.
Water around me, covering the lower half of my tired, aching, and freezing cold body. I hate the feeling of wet clothes against my skin; I’ve always hated it. But I can’t do anything now. I can’t pull myself from the water that laps around me. I can’t slip back in and drown. I can only lie here, too weak to even shiver as I feel the cold – feel the water.
Eventually, the feeling stopped, and my consciousness was gone.
I don’t know how much time passed before I felt the water again. My misery had not lessened, but this time my body did not feel so drained of its power. I could feel the faintest touch of sunlight on my cheek, but it was a light that was filtered through something, likely trees. My fingers curled slightly, and I felt the gritty dirt beneath my nails. My breath was shallow, but at least I was breathing.

"We'll be back in a couple of hours." Mom informs me. I look up from my laptop to see her in a black dress.
"Jeez Mom, you know you already have Scott right? You don't have to try and give him a heart attack."
"Ha ha, very funny Em. Behave while we're gone." she replies.
"I'm seventeen Mother, not seven. There's a teen on the end."
"Yes, and there's a y on the end of mine."
"Twenty?" I ask sweetly. She gives me a look and crosses her arms across her chest.
"What do you want?" she questions.
"Twenty bucks and the Japanese place's phone number."
"And how would you pick up your food? You don't have a car, and, if I remember correctly, a 'huge' Pre-Cal test to study for so no inviting people over."
"Well, I was hoping they delivered."
"Sorry, not happening. There's a frozen

Nearby stood a desk, behind which sat his wife, Julie, and their son, a 9-year-old Nathan. Jason again tried to escape, but to no avail. Noticing his attempt, Julie whispered something to Nathan, and the boy here also laughed.

- You want to say something?
Jason nodded quickly, making it clear that he wants to say something to his wife. Ju

I then ask her parents if there was anything.....that was odd about her lately. They said that they haven't seen anything wrong with their daughter and said that she would go through her everyday routine:wake up,take a shower,get dressed,brush teeth, brush hair, eat, and then harmed off to school,work or go out with some friends.
Oddly enough, before I was going to make my leave, her younger brother, Samuel, pulled me off the side to talk to me.

Lots of people interpret ‘happiness’ differently.
Some demand material goods, claiming that money can buy happiness and diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Others say it comes from good friends and better times, as if the only keys to true happiness are a friend, a lover, and a bottle of fine booze. And others still say it must come from within; one cannot find happiness in the outside world without finding happiness inside oneself.
For one Gabriela Luisa-Rodriguez, happiness was curling up on her trash-corner couch with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream and a late-night airing of Moulin Rouge.
She was a simple girl with simple needs – the fact she had a television to watch or food to eat was a small miracle in itself. She had never known Maslow’s hierarchy as intimately as diamonds or friendships or self-fulfillment. ‘Happiness’ would be better off not even being in her vocabulary
