Sweat or tears:1

3tAs he comes up for air Sam jumps in the water and Nicholas follows close after. They both break the surface at the same time when they come up again. Sam roars, eyes blurry and dives under again. Nicholas throws his shoes up on the dock and starts swimming closer to where Taylor went under. Senai is frozen in the cold water for a second before a loud splash and someone screaming his name wakes him up. Jasper swims past him after Nicholas. Senai takes a deep breath and dives. He sees a dark blur of body through the grayish green. He sees Sam floating up and his legs kicking in despair as he breathes on the surface. Senai sees Taylor, as shadow moving further away in the water, almost invisible. He sees Jasper diving closer than any of the three. He reaches out but fails to grab Taylor´s sleeve- the only thing even remotely in his reach.


Amen is screaming from behind them, he´s standing on the dock, Saul is holding him back from jumping in too, all he can do is scream. Senai cough and choke on seawater. Nicholas comes up a few meters to his left. They look at each other for seconds before he dives again.
