So, the four friends—Will, Ethan, Jason, and Derrick—went out rafting. The boys were charged up even at the mere thought of going down the January River. When Derrick, Jason and Ethan found themselves on the raft, the excitement turned into euphoria. At that moment, trouble loomed. Unforeseen and unexpected, it hit them like a charging tornado.
Derrick’s sister, Sarah, jumped out of the bushes growing on the riverbank. “Well, well! What do I see here?” She turned with a threatening tone to her several-minutes-older brother. His jaw almost fell to the raft and scraped on it as he couldn’t believe his own eyes. “You didn’t want to take me with you, did you? Did you think you could sneak out and run away just like that? Hasn’t it occurred to you that your baby sister would like to come for a ride too?”
“What’s that, for Christ’s sake?” Jason whispered into Derrick’s ear. “I thought you said everything’s been taken care of with your sister. You were supposed to get rid of her.”
“That was what I thought,” moaned Derrick. “But it seems she tricked us again.”
“Well, Der, what do you have to say in your defense?” She approached the water, showing no mercy at all.
“What the heck you brats think you’re doin’?” Will stood in the water up to his knees, not knowing whether to climb on the raft or move toward Derrick’s sister. “Haven’t we agreed that just four of us were to go down the river?”
“We have, but it seems Derrick messed up,” Jason commented helplessly.
“I messed up?! It cost me fifty cents!”
All rivers carry their secrets, but not every river keeps its secret forever.
