As I stared into the water it began to turn green. A creature emerged from the depths of the swampy water. The flies swarmed around the dead reeds. I felt sick just looking at it. It was the most putrid thing I had ever seen. And I was meant to swim in it! But it was so humid and sticky that I decided there was nothing else I could do but get my bathers on and jump. I hold my breath and…

SPLASH!!

As soon as I am in it changes. The water is clear and perfect. Ahhhh… this is where I am going to be spending the rest of my summer. In this pool.
