poof! said the girl as she disappeared with fingers interlocked and eyes crossed she took a step and fell into the water Her lungs deflated and so did her hair as she scanned the water for oxygen. She found none but refused to grow gills. So she sank and wept Her salty tears flooded into her open mouth and she drank them. She closed her eyes as the water picked away at her cells. Her mind opened and water rushed in. She let the tide carry her away as she exhaled what she thought she knew.
