Stress

Stress.

Molly planted her feet on the bottom of the public pool. The water came up to her shoulders, about four feet deep. She wiped the water from her eyes, squinting in the bright sunlight of early afternoon. Other swimmers were splashing and squealing around her. She didn’t notice anyone coming up behind her. She wasn’t aware of anyone until hands grabbed her, pushed her underwater and held her there. She gasped a deep breath of air as her head slid under the water. She kicked and fought to get free of the hands that wouldn’t let go, wouldn’t let her rise up for air. Her heart pounded. She was going to die! Didn’t the lifeguard or anyone else see what was happening? Why wasn’t someone helping her? Why was someone doing this to her?
