I had a memory, which made me feel scared every time I thought about it again.

On that special day, my friends and I had a trip to relax on a small ferry and it had enough room for 10 people. We joined the trip with happy and my boss, and he made many jokes make us laugh such as "the turtle" and:"The zoo." In the first morning sunset, I stayed at the deck and wore a cotton shirt. Suddenly, our boat was out of fuel and shocked us at that time. My boss called for help from the land and they said i will be here as soon as they can and he checked the rada,  he stressed because we are in the special zone that has many reefs and corals. He said that we must do some tasks with me. I had to go to the electric room to ensure that it would be enough for use when we waited for the helpers. However, the weather became worse because there was a hurricane. I dropped the paper on the surface of the sea and it looked like surfing on the wave, it is the sign of the huge storm. We felt scare.Then i adjusted the ferry machine and we tried throwing heavy stuff to the sea so that it could help us to survive. Not a long time after had done that job, the huge wave came with many big sounds. We had to go back to our room and wait. My friends, who stayed with me, he prayed a lot and i heard about his word.Two hours later, it stopped and the rescuers came to give us fuel. of course, we were afraid of the sea so we decide to go back  home.After that event, it made me felt scare of the sea.
