So strange! All my body was sweating, despite I was in the open air, sailing with my dad on a beautiful bay. The small boat swayed in the waves. All around us, it was blue. I wanted to talk with dad. But he was busy with the sail and securing the lines. The air was cold. So, why was I sweating?
-Don’t be afraid. You’ll be back soon, he said looking at me with his blue eyes and his charming smile
-You know I can’t
-Why have you come to me?
-To tell you that when you feel lost I’ll sail your boat for you and lead you to a safe port.
-But dad, I can’t get out. I have nothing with me. No money, no phone, not even a proper clothes.
-Nothing of that matters. The only thing you need is trust me.
-Like when I was a kid?
-Dad, I miss you so much. Let me hug you.
I tried to stand on the small ship’s unsafe deck and approach him, but my body would not obey me. He disappeared, leaving me a clear image of his smile. I woke up, stretching my arms towards an intangible dream.

Tears in my eyes. My dad took me sailing too.
That’s unforgettable, isn’t it? I’m glad you’ve liked it
