Chapter 4: Piece of Love

The next morning, Cody was surfing a little early and with his new Big Z necklace, he felt as if it's a piece of memory of his mom. In his heart, he felt as if she'll be watching over him forever and more. Lani and Z watched him surf and became very impressed about his moves and graceful skills. As he paddled back to shore, he saw them standing there.

Z looked at the necklace on Cody's neck and asked, "Where did you find this necklace?"

"I think it was a gift from heaven." said Cody.

"Seriously?" asked Lani.

"I realized that my mom's proud of me and she'll be looking down on me in heaven and her caring support will help me be the better surfer I can be."

"You act as if she actually said that." said Z.

"If I did, you guys would think I'm crazy."

Z and Lani looked at each other and realized that Cody was right. Then, they turned to him and saw him smiling and looking up at the sky and thinking so fondly of her. Z sighed and said, "Okay, kid. We believe you. That white light last night kinda woke up and I saw you standing there talking to an angel and I didn't know it was your mom. I felt as though you're gonna be in good hands here."

"We'll do everything we can to treat you like family." said Lani.

"Thanks, guys."

"Hey, dudes!" exclaimed Joe.

"Hey, Joey!" said Z.

"You doing okay, Cody?" asked Joe.

"Yeah, man. I'm cool."

"So, you guys ready to surf?" asked Z.

"We ain't wasting time standing here. Let's surf!" exclaimed Joe.

Everyone got their boards and surfed the whole morning away. As Cody was surfing, he looked back on the memories of his past and where's he's been while on his journey of being a surfer in Pen Gu Island while playing a song on the radio that reflects on his life and someone watching over him in heaven.

Found myself today
Oh I found myself and ran away
Something pulled me back
The voice of reason I forgot I had
All I know is you're not here to say
What you always used to say
But it's written in the sky tonight

So I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Someone's watching over me

Seen that ray of light
And it's shining on my destiny
Shining all the time
And I wont be afraid
To follow everywhere it's taking me
All I know is yesterday is gone
And right now I belong
To this moment to my dreams

So I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Someone's watching over me

It doesn't matter what people say
And it doesn't matter how long it takes
Believe in yourself and you'll fly high
And it only matters how true you are
Be true to yourself and follow your heart

So I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
That I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even when it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
That someone's watching over
Someone's watching over
Someone's watching over me

Someone's watching over me....

Cody soon realized that he has family from above and in Pen Gu. Despite that he lost his mother, there is one thing he'll never lose... love. He has received lots of love from friends and family, especially from his friends.


The song was "Someone's Watching Over Me" from Hilary Duff. I chose the song because it had such a feeling for Cody. I hope you like it!
