Just for reference I am a sixteen year old girl. I’m 5’2, a little chubby. brown hair, blue eyes. I’m nothing special in any way, shape, or form.

Last November, my parents decided that we’d go on a cruise instead of staying at home with family. They wanted a break and I could understand that and what they meant by it so it wasn’t a big deal to me. The only concern I had about the entire ordeal was that I can’t swim and I was afraid of a repeat of the Titanic.
