as he that sleeps here swim

Salinger dove in the pool. He used to swim, before. Before his whole life was turned upside down and he was stuffed into an institution, and then the Tower. He didn’t have the lung capacity anymore, thanks to the years of cigarettes, but his body knew how to do it anyway. But today he needed to swim. The physical exhaustion that came afterwards would be enough to put him to sleep without laying awake and being angry or sad or elated or a mix of emotions he couldn’t understand. That’s why he was at the pool and he thought it was empty until he finished a lap and stopped to catch his breath. Looking up he started, “Jesus, you scared me.”

“What do you think, I just  went  down to the local ghost Top Shop?”

And Mary sees the last of her boys off to college. It’ll be a little while before True leaves, and Cole and Erika will have a baby any time now. They still have to get married. So much to do…so why are nights so long? Why does she feel so lonesome?

Why did that nice redheaded man have to be only visiting from a foreign country?

(Luke Henry, the triple-bolt guy she met at the swimming pool, doesn’t have a phone! And there’s so much else going on I keep forgetting about Phaenoh’s Phonebook.)


Hi :) Ship pls? All the groups, please? I’m 5’ 6. Birthday in November. I’m American born Taiwanese. I can speak Chinese and English. Socially awkward. Quiet and shy at first, but once you know me I’m caring and I laugh a lot. Sportsy and boyish? More of an online person. I like to swim, dance, sing, read, sleep, eat, and draw. Thanks :) Love your blog and keep up the good work!

I think I’ve actually shipped you before? (I recognised your cute face omg hehe) I’ll link the post here

However, I did add KNK to my groups so I’ll write that up. 

I ship you with Youjin! He’s also super quiet within the group and so somebody that could match that mood would be great. He’s also an online person (mostly games) and you’d have sessions where you’d both sit on your relative computers. The sound of clicks would fill the air and the only time you’d stop would be to show each other something funny. He’d want to sing with you as well, to share his passion in music. 

He did not like being in captivity. Not one bit. The containment they’d trapped him in was well-designed, yes, and most fish wouldn’t care to tell the difference beyond pointing out the cleaner waters and vast lack of predators. He’d even spoken to some, and the best response he’d gotten, so to speak, was that it was paradise. In the creatures own simplistic language. 

Fish didn’t care much to communicate, and had a very basic language.

Still, he couldn’t help but swim circles around the tank, examining bits and pieces here and there - the growth had been artificially started, no doubt, but had grown naturally over time. Were they bringing seawater in somehow? 

The people that had brought him here - or people associated with them - were watching him constantly - no doubt because he wasn’t bothering to hide muuch outside of sleeping. 
And why should he? What point was there in being stubborn? He wasn’t afraid of the two-legged, finless creatures. They were useless in the water without special instruments. He was designed for it.

Currently, he was resting on a stone outcropping, directly next to one of the see-through walls and contentedly ignoring the whispers and mutters and stares of the small crowd he knew was there, watching him.
His tail, long and eel-like, drifted slightly with the current in the tank - there had to be some kind of filter somewhere in here - and he amused himself by filtering air out of water, and blowing bits of it out of his mouth as bubbles.  

To be perfectly truthful, though, one of the main reasons he was resting there at all was that there was a nest of cleaner-fish nearby, and he found it relaxing to just lay and let them work. If the humans wanted to watch him get clean, then let them.
