He was holding her, up above the water, with a gun to her head as her family watched helplessly. She started to gasp. If they made a move, he could shoot her in the head and kill her instantly. If they didn't, she could suffocate above the water, her gills opening and closing desperately just for a tiny amount of oxygen. Her makeshift lungs were giving out and her instincts were kicking in. She tried to flail but he was much bigger, and much stronger than her. I couldn't stand the look on her face, so I closed my eyes. People were screaming and arguing, but I couldn't remember any of the words. All I knew was that I didn't want to hear it anymore. So I shoved my head under the water and let it rush into my ears, blocking out the horrors above.
