"Robin drowned, something pulled him down."Larry.

"But what's underneath us."Mateo.

"It could be any predator from the depths, most likely a shark."Larry.

"And what to do now, sir, he will eat us one by one and you will not be able to stop him."Larry.

"I will never allow it , it must be killed and disposed of."Mateo.

"How so, sir, that would be crazy, we don't have a weapon."Larry.

"Everyone should approach each other and form a ring in a group, be vigilant and when you are attacked by this fish hit the kicks and try to hit her eyes and gills hard and repeatedly, strong blows, do not keep your hands away before hitting as this does not provide additional force underwater, you can also use the claws with the eyes and"Mateo.

I like the plot. A few things that might help. - If there are only two people talking to each other, you only need to say who is talking at the beginning. The reader will understand as you switch from one person to the other. - If you are adding the names of each speaker, you might want to put the name at the beginning of the speech instead of the end. That way the reader knows who is talking before reading what they say.
