The first thing I remember thinking when I woke up was: ouch. I'd been climbing out of the pool when... I don't even know what happened. One minute I was half-submerged in the water, next thing I know I'm on my back at the bottom of the pool. Which...doesn't have any water?

I rubbed the back of my head where the most pain was coming from. It felt wet. I looked at my hand and yelped a little when I saw red. I wiped the blood on my boardshorts and looked around. Some water would be helpful. I spat on my hand was about to try and maybe wipe off some of the blood but I wasn't too hopeful. That's when the saliva on my palm...well, it kind of got sucked into my hand. It's hard to explain. Maybe I was seeing things. Yeah, that had to be it. I'd fallen pretty far and my head was bleeding. I shook my head, kind of wishing I hadn't as soon as I did. That's when my fringe decided to flop in front of my eyes. I really would have to get it cut some time. I pushed my mess of a brunette fringe back and spat on my palm again. Once again the saliva misbehaved. Except this time it didn't get sucked into my hand, it did the opposite. It hovered above my skin in a constantly rotating ball.

Well, that was awkward.

The End
