From I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916
There couldn't be a shark in the creek
That was crazy
Chet tried to laugh, but T.J. was still standing there with that terrified look on his face
And now Dewey was rushing through the water towards the grass
"Get out of the water!" he yelled
Because that black triangle was coming right at them
Chet swam as fast as he could, but T.J. just stood there, frozen
"T.J.!" Chet shouted "Hurry!"
But it was too late
The shark was heading right for T.J.
T.J. screamed
There was a huge splash
And then he was gone
