Gasping for air... Swimming forever... Need... Ice. I go underwater, looking for food in order to feed my family. My mission is not as simple as it seems. Suddenly, I feel a vibration through the icy cold water. I turn my head toward the source. Brown fur, slim body, made of meat! This was a seal... a lonely, defenseless seal. And I'm not just happy about food, if there's a seal, that means land is nearby. I swim toward her, making as little sound as possible. In a few seconds, the seal spots me. She turns her head, looking straight into my eyes with fear, and swims away as fast as lightning. Simultaneously, I blast forward, going as fast as I can. Many hours without rest slows me down, but that leftover need for survival launches me faster. She makes sharp turns, and I follow. She begins to rise up. I look where she's going and see tiny hole of light. Surrounding the hole was... Ice! I swim up, following the seal. Crashing through the ice, I grab the seal through my jaws. Finally, I caught some pray. I finish her up with a quick bite in the neck. I take a break on land for a while. Then, I scramble to my feet, scanning the surroundings.
