She holds her breath and floats, under the water in the bathtub. A public area, anyone could see.   I see her there often. Her long brown hair floats out behind her. Her face, eerie like death, eyes open. Her breasts are young and lovely, the brown hair where her legs join....Scary, eerie, her face like death. She is like a mermaid, some kind of crazy water doll. Or an eerie dead angel.

Under the water in the bathtub, holding her breath she floats, eerie, her face like death, her long, brown  hair floating  and fanning out behind her....She did this a lot...her body was naked; what thoughts went through her mind? What impressions or reflections? What feelings? The hair where her legs joined was brown too.   Her breasts lovely, yet so eerie, like a mermaid or

doll or dead angel....
