She sat on the side of the pool, slithering steadily down the seats, hoping her classmates wouldn't look her way.
The teacher barked: "Right, everyone in the pool!"
She had been dreading those words for a whole week. She hung back, clutching her towel around her midriff as her friends shrieked and dived into the water. The teacher raised an eyebrow.
"Well, go on then."
"But Miss, I-"
"No excuses! Get in!"
She sighed and, deciding actions spoke louder than words, dropped her towel. She smirked.
"Yes, my legs are pink. Still want me to get in the pool?"
