The sun was setting on the horizon, casting a golden glow across the vast expanse of water. Waves lapped gently against the side of the boat as it bobbed up and down in time with the current. The salty sea air filled my lungs, invigorating me in a way that only being at sea can.

The circus had rolled into town with its colorful tents, exotic animals, and a host of performers that promised an unforgettable show. For twelve-year-old Lily, who had spent most of her life cooped up in her family's small farm, this was an opportunity to escape reality and explore a world beyond her wildest dreams.
