I can't wait for the story, so I will write Derek's story.
Derek was floating along, enjoying a brew and minding his own business, when he heard screaming downriver.
"Hmmm, that's odd," he thought.
He put down his beer, picked up his oars, and pushed his boat into the current and around the bend.
"Oh, no!", he exclaimed. "There's a boat on fire! And there are little girls on it!"
He rushed over, jumped aboard, and rescued a troop of girl scouts from the burning boat.
Hooray for Derek!!!
