I was visiting my cousins in Scotland. Went for a solitary swim around the lake, because it's so different and creepy. I heard odd noises behind me, then … no more.
Everything was wrong. I could feel the sun, it was warm, pleasant. I was in the water, yet I wasn't. Moving felt – strange. I opened my eyes and was no longer in the lake.
My surroundings were bright and cheerful. They reminded me of home, the Mediterranean. With a sinking feeling, I somehow knew that I would never see my home again.
Before I could dwell on that thought, two humans arrived. They stopped, pointing at me and talking. I didn't understand their language, but the way they looked at me so admiringly …
I flung my hair over my shoulder and winked at them. Their blush made me giggle. Maybe I would like it here after all.
