The disguised quarian was thigh-deep in water now. "Man, I wish I could swim. I would try to get lessons or something but apparently the HQ pool is and isn't a thing at the same time." After a little hesitation, she sat down in the water and shivered. "Brr! Oh, okay. Okay. Better. Ooh, this isn't so bad!" Naya let herself bob along with the waves, pushing off the bottom with her hands and legs whenever her head went underwater. "Yeah, I can see why humans love to swim. It feels like... Flying. Sort of." She looked at the Reader, about to ask her something about her life on Gallifrey, but stopped.

      • "Flying, huh?"DawnFire, Fri Aug 7 23:29
        Tentatively, the Reader slipped into the water. "Oh, it's nice. Warm." She pushed off, attempting to swim, and got a face full of water and her own hair for her trouble. She promptly stood up,... more
        • "Um, hey, guys?"Iximaz, Fri Aug 7 23:48
          Rina waded out to meet Naya and the Reader; the water barely came up to her waist. She looked down and trailed her fingers through the water. "Hi, Reader. Naya. Emiran wants me to tell you to not get ... more

            "Tell him that he's a big worrywart and that I'm a grown lady. I'm fine." Naya emphasized the point by sculling around for a bit. "It's gonna take a lot more than a wave to pull me under. Besides,... more

                "I'll make sure to let him know." She shook her head. "Honestly, the water's barely shallow enough to wade in, I don't know what his problem is..." She pushed off and began swimming into deeper... more

                  "She speaks the truth!" exclaimed the quarian, continuing to bob in the waves. "I am in shallow water. Emiran is making a fuss over absolutely nothing again." Almost immediately as she said that, a... more

                    The Reader stared after her, horrified. "*Naya*!" The Time Lady dove after her, switching to the respiratory bypass after about two seconds. Unfortunately, between the current dragging Naya away and... more

                          The Guardsman and TB slid next to the two women. Terabyte put a hand on the Reader's shoulders. " Ma'am, please let Emiranlanoamar take over. He is trained in first aid, " said the geth agent.... more
