She is wearing a peach-colored dress and thinks of nothing more than the richness of silk and sun on her skin as she sits beside the pond. She dips her toes into the cool embrace of the murky water. Sliding forward, she reaches with her leg into the depths of the pond, delighting in the sensation of water against skin. A goldfish brushes against her ankle, no more than a brief flash. She stretches further, waiting to feel the mud between her toes, but is surprised by the water's depth. With barely a ripple, the water engulfs her.
