Before Nick or Carline could get too far down on the dock, Nick managed to reach over and grab on of the handles as fast as he could.
“Nick!” shouted Carline stretching her hand out towards him. Nick quickly managed to grab her hand.
“Hang on!” Nick shouted. Both desperately tried to climb up the wet dock, but their feet kept slipping. Down below they could still see the shark fin swimming around and around.
“Isn’t there anything that make this thing swim away?” asked Nick still trying disparately to help pull Carline and himself up. Carline looked around trying hard to figure something she could throw at it.
“Nick, Nick is that you!” they both heard a man running over towards the broken dock.
“Yes Greg help please!” Nick shouted.
“Hang on hang on!” said Greg running off as fast as he could.
“Hurry!” Nick shouted still trying desperately to hold onto Carline.
“Here I got it!” said Greg running up with a thing of rope. He started running it down towards Carline when suddenly the dock was struck again. Greg starting tilting around until he found himself falling fast down into the water.
“Greg!” Nick shouted right as he lost his grip on Carline and she too fell into the water. “Carline!” Nick used his other hand to try to pull himself up desperately onto solid ground.
Carline swam as fast as she could towards the surface. She looked around and she happened to notice Greg also swimming around.
“Greg, did you see,” she started to ask when she saw the fin coming towards him
“Greg, look out!” she shouted. Greg turned and saw the shark fin.
“Oh god!” he shouted as he tried to swim away.
“No Greg no, don’t,” Carline tried to call out when she saw the fin turn, swimming right at her. “Oh god, oh god!” Suddenly a rock came down and hit at the shark’s fin. Carline looked up and saw Nick standing on a none-damaged part of the dock with another rock in his hands throwing it at the shark again.
“Get out of the water you two!” he called out looking for another blunt object to throw at the shark. Both Carline and Greg swam as fast as he could towards the dock with the rope still tied to it.
“Come on Miss,” said Greg trying hard to help Carline up as fast as he could. Nick ran towards them with a rock still in his hand.
“Here Carline!” He offered her down his hand. Carline grabbed it and did her best to pull herself up. Nick looked up in time to see the shark once again coming at them.
“Oh Shit!” he shouted as he managed to pull Carline all the way up. “Greg, Greg, come on!”
Greg grabbed onto the robe as fast as he could only to suddenly get pulled back under the water, “Oh shit Greg!”
Carline looked out towards the water that was starting to turn red.
“Oh my god!” she said. Then she saw the fin heading back towards the dock. “Nick, Nick, get away from there! It’s coming back!” Nick looked out and saw the fin coming. He quickly got up and ran over to Carline right as the shark hit the dock again making a part of it crash into the water.
“That, that was not right!” said Carline.
Thea sat on her bed reading when she felt her husband kissing her neck.
“Hmm, Joe,” she said as she tried to pull away.
“You are one stressed out lady,” said Joe, “You know what you need? You need learn to relax more.”
“Believe me I’d like nothing more,” said Thea.
Just then they started hearing the annoying buzzing sound of the phone in the kitchen.
“That’s not the work phone is it?” grumbled Joe.
“Yep,” said Thea, “As if my day wasn’t already fucked up.” She pushed Joe off and ran towards the kitchen, “What?”
“Chief, we had another shark encounter at the docks,” said Eric.
“Another shark encounter? Was it near the boats or something?” asked Thea.
“No it was more near the business distract,” said Eric.
“What?” said Thea.
“How are you two doing?” she asked Carline and Nick. The two sat down on the ground with blankets around them.
“Better than Greg apparently,” muttered Nick, “It’s not fair. All he did was try to help us.”
“We found him,” they suddenly heard the rescue group shout out. Thea raced down towards the water where they saw them dragging him out of the water.
“He lost a leg,” said one of the rescuers.
“Oh my god, Greg, Greg I’m so sorry!” said Thea.
“Chief, that shark as a pretty big bite,” said Greg as he was carried away.
“Greg, Greg thank god!” said Nick running over to him as he was carried to an ambulance. “I’m so glad you didn’t die because of us.” Greg merely nodded.
“I’m glad he didn’t die,” said Carline standing next to Nick, “So is this how you usually have dates here?”
“Oh no, sometimes they’re really crazy,” said Nick.
“Nick, we need to talk. I’ll be coming by your office tomorrow,” said Thea.
“Oh sure thing Chief,” said Nick.
“What does she want?” asked Carline.
“I don’t know,” said Nick, “So should I take you back to where you’re staying?”
“Uh,” Carline said, “I, I…,”
“What’s wrong?” asked Nick.
“I just don’t know if I want to be alone that’s all,” said Carline.
“Oh well then I guess do the honorable thing huh?” said Nick.
“Mmm, normally I wait until third date to do that,” Carline muttered looking next to Nick lying next to her.
“Just that, or is there something else you can do?” Nick asked smiling at her.
“Mmm, if you treat me this well on all of your dates you’ll find out,” said Carline. Nick chuckled and leaned over to kiss her. Then he noticed the time.
“Oh hell!” he said.
“What?” asked Carline.
“I need to go meet the chief at my office!” said Nick as he bolted out of bed.
“Oh yeah that’s right,” said Carline.
“Did you want to come with me or wait here?” asked Nick.
“I’ll take a shower and then see what I want to do. I can catch up with you at your office,” said Carline.
“Alright,” said Nick pulling on his pants.
“So what can I do for you Chief?” asked Nick when Thea showed up at his office.
“I need you to give me the list of some of your best fishermen around to go and hunt that shark!” said Thea.
“Seriously?” asked Nick.
“Yes,” said Thea.
“You’ve never done something like this before,” said Nick.
“Yeah well this is different,” said Thea.
“Nick here you are,” said Carline.
“Oh hey sorry I had to leave you alone this morning,” said Nick.
“Oh no, you guys didn’t?” said Thea.
“Well it sort felt right at the time,” said Nick.
“What are you doing here this morning Chief?” asked Carline.
“I’m getting some people to go out and kill that shark!” said Thea.
“What, are you serious?” asked Carline.
“Uh yeah, we almost lost another human last night!” said Thea, “Three actually and I’m not about to let it happen again any time soon!”
“Chief it’s an animal alright, an animal. It can’t tell right from wrong,” said Carline.
“What about how it started coming towards you instead of going after Greg like it was originally?” said Nick.
“I’m sure it wasn’t really like that,” said Carline, “I’m sure there’s a logical explanation about for it.”
“Wait the shark came after you?” asked Thea.
“It looked like for a moment,” said Carline, “But like I said…,”
“No wait a minute,” said Thea, “Did the shark really turn and come after you?”
“It looked that way yes but I’m sure there was something else going on,” said Carline.
“Take this from someone who’s been the target of a shark, you couldn’t be further from the truth. I’ve been targeted by sharks trust me! When I was a little girl I was living in the Bahamas with my parents, I was targeted and almost eaten by a shark had it not been for the woman behind me shoving me forward and getting grabbed by the shark herself!” said Thea.
“I’m sorry but that sounds hard to believe,” said Carline.
“Well it’s true! Sharks have been going after my family since my grandfather first took a job as a police sheriff of this small town in New England called Amity,” said Thea
“Did you say Amity?” said Carline surprised.
“Yeah why?” asked Thea.
“That’s the town from my uncle’s story,” said Carline.
“Your uncle?” asked Thea.
“Yeah he use to tell me this story of me him going to this town to help them get rid of a massive shark that was attacking people in the town and he said the town’s name was Amity,” said Carline.
“What was your uncle’s name?” asked Thea.
“Matt, Matt Hooper,” said Carline.
“Matt Hooper?” said Thea
“Yeah, he was working at a nearby marine biology lab at the time, and he volunteered to come help when the chief apparently asked them for help,” said Carline.
“What was the chief’s name?” asked Thea starting to feel just a little bit weird.
“Um Martin Brody I believe,” said Carline.
“Martin Brody?” said Thea.
“Yeah or some weird made up name like that,” said Carline.
“That name wasn’t made up! Your uncle’s story was true!” said Thea, “Martin Brody was my grandfather!”
