Would you jump off a bridge?

Work Text:


If your friends jumped off a bridge, the old saying goes, would you? The answer, of course, is supposed to be No.

For Neal, apparently the answer is Yes—if the friend is Kate, that is.

It was supposed to be a quick in-and-out while the car from the museum was at the stoplight. But Kate tripped when they were getting into position, and the water is pitch black, and suddenly Neal’s really regretting planning the heist for a night with no moon but he jumps in anyway.

How long can a person survive in 40-degree water, anyway?
