Rosie took a deep breath, and closed her eyes. She cautiously dipped her right foot beneath the endless, salted waters, then her left, sinking gently into the surf, until the gentle waves stopped at her waist. She sighed, and forced her arms through the countless tears, letting the water caress her skin, and play with her hair. When she felt comfortable with the friendly surface, she cupped her hands and forced herself down through the surface. Her senses were numbed, her eyes still closed, until eventually, she plucked up the courage to open her eyes.
