He was at the beach with his family in the afternoon. Everyone was having a great time, except him. He wanted to go out there and ride a wave and let the waves wash him back into shore. But every time he got to where he thought the waves would be they were somewhere else. Finally, as the sun was setting, he was struck by an enormous wave. It washed him all the way up onto the sand. He was so excited and he ran back out into the surf.

But it was nighttime very suddenly. All he could see was gentle waves all the way to the horizon and he was completely alone.
