One forward, the other back. Switch. The other forward, the one back. They continued like this through the water, each leg getting a turn to stretch and feel it. While his legs were soaked, his bum remained dry. He had no intent to go in further. If he did, he would wrinkle his nose at his own scent.
"Why don't you go in further? It's clean."
They warned against swimming outside but what made this water any better? It may be "clean" but our noses are rivers, our eyes are burning, and our heads are throbbing. Is that any better?
