the water didn’t hate her. It loved her. That was why it kept making her fall in. It wanted to be with her. So Heather made a bargain with the water. She promised she would learn to swim, if it stopped making her fall in all the time. The water kept its bargain. Heather stopped falling in the water. Instead, she would put on her bathing suit and climb bravely into the pool all by herself. Later, Heather would dive in. Later still, Heather competed in the school swimming sports.
