“You really don’t want to jump here,” Ron Smart-Ass teased. Big brothers – the worst- but I didn’t have time for him now.

I couldn’t tear my gaze from the placid water below. Would it be cold or warm?  Clear? Cloudy?  Would I sink into endless mud and never come back?

“Got snapping turtles,” Ron snickered. “Eat your toes off.”

“Snakes.”

I ignore him.

“Coward!”

“Baby!”

“Weenie!”

Closing my eyes, I jumped, landing with a splash, kicking up once my downwards movement ended. Breaking the surface, I looked up.

“Come on in, the water is fine!”

Boys started jumping, splash-bombing into summer.
