The police diver propelled himself through the murky water of the canal. Tasked with finding a missing girl, the search of the canal was a last - but necessary - resort.

Flashing his torch across the surface, he saw a white hand, trapped amongst the fauna and detritus that had collected at the bottom of the canal.

Further investigation revealed a floral blouse, colours dulled by the dirty water. A face, bloated and pale. Shit...

He should report this to his superiors. But he couldn't. Something inside urged him to let the search go on.

Let someone else break the bad news.
