Dark Water? I'm Out...

I've always had this fear and I know why. When I was 12 I went on a school trip to a natural park or whatever, where we could do many things like riding a horse, shoot some arrows and sail. Well, I got on a boat with 2 friends, each with their own double paddles, and there we go! It was hard at first but once we caught the hang of it, it was pretty damn easy.

The thing is, our boat got stuck! I don't know why or how, but we were in middle of the bloody lake, which was dark as hell! We called one of our teachers and he came to rescue us. When came my turn of jumping into his boat, I totally slipped and fell in the water! It was freezing, it was dirty, there was some crappy plants floating around me, I could feel some sh*t touching my legs and I started to freak out, since my life vest wasn't helping either cause it was literally choking me. So much for safety...

Anyway, I was pulled out of the water, I was given some towels, I got a cold and moved on with my life but the fear still lives in me.

We never know what's under water and that freaks me out.
