One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It was 2002. Two months after the terrible accident in which the Prestige boat oil spill polluted thousands of kilometers of coastline in the Spanish northern coast, I went swimming in the basque beach with my older cousins. I was 10 years old and was playing some mermaid tricks when I saw my cousins' faces were totally black. I looked at them, they looked me back, they started screaming. An ambulance parked on the beach and called us all out of the water. An emergency group with a special soap started cleaning us from the toxic gasoline we all were covered with. We understood it was the oil from the Prestige, and that it was bad for us, but not much more, so when they finished washing us, we ran back to the sea and played with the oil again. It was pretty exciting. Finally an adult from my family took us out, explained us everything and we felt a bit silly.
