At The Beginning

"Doubar, strike sail!" Sinbad yelled. "A storm is coming!"

"Aye, little brother!" Doubar shouted. Ten minutes before the sea was calm. But now it was like the end of the world. Sinbad stood at the tiller.

"Grab something to hold on!" Bryn screamed to the other crewmembers. Firouz took a rope and tied himself to the mast. The storm became heavier. Two crewmembers were blown over board.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!" Then there was a big splash.

"Noooooooooooooooooo! Bryyyyyyn!" Sinbad cried. "Bryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyn!" He didnít hesitate a second. He stepped on the reeling and jumped in the wild ocean. An ocean full of death.

"Sinbaaaaaaaaaaaaad! Little brother!!!! Nooooooooooooooooooo!"

No, Sinbad thought, I lost Lea because of the sea and wonít let the ocean take Bryn, too. He couldnít see her. He only saw the high waves which surrounded him and it seemed that they wanted to swallow him. He has been fighting for hours but the he was too exhausted and he went down. He would have died if Eurymine hadnít sent her dolphins to rescue him. He didnít noticed it but the dolphins guided him to a safe island. They brought him to the beach and swam away.

Next morning he woke up. A the first moment he thought he was dead. He was on the most beautiful isle he has ever seen. So beautiful that it couldnít real. Then he remembered the storm, Bryn and the water. Now he knew that he wasnít dead and it also wasnít only a nightmare. He stood up and began to run along the beach.

He remembered how he found Bryn. It was a storm like the one last night. The only difference was that it was Maeve who fell over board. He also came to an island. He woke up and Bryn was there. But today she wasnít.

No! She must be alive. She must!

"Bryn! Can you hear me! You must live! Bryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyn!" he cried. He fell on his knees. Tears ran down he cheeks. They had so many adventures. So many wonderful moments. They had their friendship. A very strong friendship. They were connected through the rainbow bracelets.

"Yeah! The rainbow bracelets! Thatís it!" he shouted. He held out his hand and yelled:

"Show me the way to her!!!" Suddenly his bracelet began to glow and an invisible hand pulled him inland. He could feel that he got to her closer and closer. The invisible power guided him to a cave. He stepped in and he found... a sleeping Bryn.

"Bryn!" He rushed to her and grabbed her shoulders to rouse her.

"Sinbad!" she called surprised. "How did you found me?" He showed her his still glowing bracelet.

"Well, I jumped over board when I saw you... "

"You did WHAT? But Sinbad, as captain you should be the last leaving your ship." she chided him softly.

"Not when somebody, who means a lot to me, is in danger." he whispered and touched her cheek with is fingers. Then he pulled her into his arms.

"How did you get here?" he asked her.

"I canít remember how a got to the island. When I woke up it was still very stormy. Then I found this cave and I was so tired. And the next I saw was you." Softly they began to sing:

Bryn:

We were strangers
Starting out on a journey
Never dreaming
What we'd have to go through
Now here we are
And I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

Sinbad:

No one told me
I was going to find you
Unexpected
What you did to my heart

Both:

When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is a road
And I wanna keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Bryn:

We were strangers
On a crazy adventure

Sinbad:

Never dreaming
How our dreams would come true

Both:

Now here we stand
Unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

And life is a road
And I wanna keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end
I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me
Alone in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

And life is a road
And I wanna keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end
I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Life is a road
And I wanna keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep going on

Bryn:

Starting out on a journey

Both:

Life is a road
And I wanna keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
In the end
I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Sinbad looked in Brynís eyes. They were full of passion. Their lips got closer and closer. They almost touch.

"Sinbad! Bryn! Thank goodness, youíre alive!"

Bryn and Sinbad started up and turned around.

"Doubar!" Sinbad called. "Hey!" Doubar and Sinbad hugged. Then Bryn and Doubar hugged.

"How did you found us?" Bryn wanted to know.

"Well, that was very strange. When the storm was over, a dozen of dolphins surrounded the Nomad. They showed us the way to you. And when we were on the island, we only needed to follow your trace." Doubar explained.

"Well lets go back to the ship. A lot of adventures are still waiting for us." Sinbad announced. He took Brynís hand and they went back to the beach.

In the evening Bryn stood at the reeling.

"Hey!" Sinbad joined her. "Are you o.k.? You were so silent during the dinner."

"Iím fine! Thanks!" Bryn answered. He touched her upper arm, then he turned around and went to the others.

No, Iím not. Oh, if Doubar had found us two minutes later. She began to smile. Well, one day weíll finish what we have begun.

The End
