I turned on the tap at the foot of the bathtub, filling it with water ever so slowly.
Looking down at the water pooling around my feet, I waited. Warm, but not hot enough, I thought. This will do.
As the water reached the brim and overflowed, I slid myself down and lie in the tub. Without warning, the water coming out of the tap turned colder all of a sudden. I wasn't really bothered.
A few seconds passed, minutes? and somehow I brought up enough courage to do it. I lowered my head beneath the surface.
Opened my eyes. I could see the underside of the water surface. Glimmery, shimmery, surface that showed a distorted view of the outside world.
