The Sun was shining, the air was warm. The most perfect day to go swimming.
You took off your shorts and t-shirt to reveal your swim-wear, then dived into the cool, refreshing lake.
You swim back to the surface of the water with a huge gasp for air. You play around in the water a little bit, unaware of something watching you under the water.
“_____, time to come back in.” You hear your mother call.
“Coming!” You reply, climbing the ladder to dock, so you could grab a towel and dry off. As you climbing up, you failed to notice a hand failing an attempt to grab your feet.
You and your parents have a cabin near the lakeside you go to every summer. Though you were mature enough to live by yourself, you still enjoyed the company of your parents with you during the summer. You’ve been coming here ever since you were in diapers, so everything was familiar to you.
It was now dark outside, but that didn’t stop you from going back outside for the water again.
You walk out to the dock and sit at the edge, dipping your feet into the water.
You shivered a bit. The water was FREEZING!
You saw a shape of a head pop out of the water, as if making sure it was you. You gain a confused. “Hello?” you called, half-expecting an answer.
There was silence for a few minutes.
“Of course.” You mutter. “We’re the only cabin out here...”
You sighed and relaxed. But that relaxation was soon ended by something grabbing your foot. You screamed softly, flinching, causing you to fall into the water.
You were now swimming for the surface, your lung burning for more oxygen but the thing stopped you by grabbing your foot again.
You were now trying to squirm out of it’s grasp, you succeeded by kicking its arm gently... Wait, ARM?!
You quickly swam up to the surface of the water, Taking a few deep breaths and coughing when you did.
“Are you alright?” Another voice asked.
You turned around and you couldn’t believe what you were seeing right now then.
