Walter left his car running, so the girls could stay warm as we set up camp. I got the fire going in no time and Walter laid out the sleeping bags and set up the grill. I darted to the car to check on Heather and Fiona. Heather was still knocked out, so I carried her into the cave. Walter saw me and unzipped her sleep bag closest to the fire. I laid her in and Walter zip it up. I could tell he really cared about her. Walter's Uncle owned the super popular local restaurant O Kela Me Keia, so he got us some shrimp tacos. Walter was a fantastic cook. He heated the tacos up on the grill and squeezed some fresh lime juice over them to finish them off. He saved three tacos for Heather and a wedge of lime. He said the secret was to garnish with the lime just before you wolf them down. It was about midnight and Walter dozed off. Fi and I decided to let him sleep because he worked so diligently, setting up camp and cooking.
"Orson when do you think she's gonna wake up?" asked Fiona.
"Fi, she's just knocked out, you know she had a really bad accident and her body is just trying to recuperate, she's gonna be fine in the morning!" I promised. "I think you need to get some sleep, I will stay awake and keep an eye on her and I'll wake you up if anything goes wrong."
"Okay, but if anything, I mean anything happens wake me up. I am pretty tired," replied Fiona.
They say that it takes the average person seven minutes to fall asleep. But in Fiona's case it took about two. I found an extra blanket and floated it over her gracefully. The fire was just embers now. Heather slept on one side of it, parallel to the back of the cave and Fi slept adjacent to her. Walter was passed out against the wall closest to Heather’s feet and I was against the wa...

...lly because they never recovered his body to bury,” I updated them.
“I wish he knew how badly I want to go, but my parents didn’t let me because it was not safe,” Heather voiced.
Orson where are we going, I know you just missed that turn, I haven’t been gone that long,” Fiona insisted.
It is a surprise, but we are only about ten minutes away. I parked the car a short walk away because I wanted it to be a true surprise. With my instruction, we walked along these shrubs, until we made it to the secret beach.
“Oh my gosh, Orson it’s the beach,” the girls said hesitantly.
“I only brought you here because after everyone heard our story and about Walter’s tragic death, Honolulu decided to name the beach after Walter. It’s called Walter’s Shore,” I told them.
I changed into my wet suit, grabbed one of the standing surfboards and asked, “Now who wants to go surfing?”

Dialogue Essay - Ron was Unhappy

- Dialogue Essay - Ron was Unhappy Ron was unhappy with the way his life had turned out. He had always expected to be a celebrity; a wealthy celebrity. He had not realized that this would probably require a lot of hard work and discipline. He had depended on luck. Luck had let him down. As he looked back on his short life, he could see how often he had had the opportunity to take luck by the throat. But those opportunities were past now. His life no longer had the prospect of wealth or celebrity....   [tags: Dialogue Essays]

Dialogue Essays - Freshly Cut Grass

- Dialogue Essays - Freshly Cut Grass The air sings with the fragrance of freshly cut grass. As a backdrop to other things, children are at play, swinging too and fro, running and skipping; there are toddlers who toddle and mindful mothers who watch on in painful and patient distraction. The sun is everywhere: in the corners of the pavilion, bearing down on the tennis courts, caressing the flower beds, the convection of its heat pulling at the carpet-like lawns, dragging out bodily its scent....   [tags: Dialogue Essays]

Dialogue Essays - The Bar

- Dialogue Essays - The Bar It doesn’t take long for lives to come together or to come apart. Just a few short moments in time, time that is subjective, objective, judging or not judging. Nobody really cares about it. It just happens. It doesn’t take long. It is happening all over the world and no one even notices. No one wants to notice. Because they all have their own secrets that they’ll never tell. She meets him in a bar. She is languishing at the scuffed up bar, one of those places where the work weary retreat after they put in their eight hours, or ten hours, or twelve, depending on the person, depending on the job....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

The Dialogue of Teenage Boys Essay

- The Dialogue of Teenage Boys Beep. Beep. Beep. That damned alarm, the most hated of Joe’s possessions, began its insistent whining at precisely 7:15 AM on July 5th. A fist groggily snaked out from underneath the Charlie’s Angels blanket and hit the top of the clock. It stopped whining. After some very peculiar movements, the mound of blankets gave birth to a bleary-eyed seventeen-year-old boy. The inhuman apparition staggered towards the bathroom. It paused when it came upon the mirror, seemingly startled by the ghastly visage reflected in the honest glass....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

Dialogue - Diverted Attention Essay

- Dialogue - Diverted Attention "Her hands are like icicles on the horizon," he said and took a drag of coffee. She nodded blankly at him, barely registering the observations that swayed his tongue and flavored his mouth. "Do you see how she’s shaking?" he asked, not taking his eyes off the porcelain doll ordering dinner across the room. He fumbled down distractedly to the table, found his plate, and devoured a fry in the half-reflective way that dressed all his actions. To this, she murmured a vague, "mm hmm….” It was enough of a reply to fill the empty space he controlled over the table, but still enough to be noncommittal and inattentive....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

Dialogue - Losing Humanity Essay

- Dialogue - Losing Humanity "We've lost, haven't we?" her dark eyes turned to him, not pleading, not appealing, but merely stating the undeniable truth. David's heart wrenched at the loss of innocence, and ultimately, the loss of hope, he saw in that gaze. Sera had been his source of inspiration so many times in the past that David was half-afraid that he'd used up so much of her spark himself that he'd left none for her. To see her so bitter, so hopeless like this, cut him deep. "Humanity, I mean....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

Dialogue Essay – Birdseye View of Life and Death

- Dialogue Essay – Birdseye View of Life and Death Episode One. A Prologue of Sorts. The camera eye sees everything, and sees it calmly and objectively. It pans slowly around the room, beginning at the coffin and the cluster of black-clad mourners gazing down at the body then continuing clockwise catching two or three-person clusters scattered around the room. It sees the pale cream-colored walls and the scarlet carpet. It sees everything in the circle of its passing and calls attention to nothing but the whole, until it reaches me sitting on a loveseat to the left of the deep-red coffin, a girl about the same age as me to my left....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]
