The wheel was pressed too far into her ribs and every breath, no matter how shallow, radiated waves of agony from deep inside her chest.

She could see, but the light was wrong. The noise of rushing, bubbling water muted other noises. She couldn’t feel her feet, but suddenly she registered the water that was rising up past her chest. So cold.

When she tried to move, the wheel, the belt and the pain kept her from moving more than a few inches.

She saw movement in the mirror, and sick panic rose with the water.

“Mama, get me up! Up!”
