Chris dove into the water, and he was amazed by how he body was able to move. He had been a good swimmer before, but it was nothing like this! He was so deft; he didn't even need his hands. His tail was doing most of the work, meaning he could feel up how soft his skin was -- well, at least on the top half until it got scaly down below. Breathing felt a little weird, since needing air was apparently no longer an issue for him. He began to wonder if mermaids had cities underwater to visit or anything like that. But he had to pull himself back from being too curious. He may have been reveling in this experience, but he certainly didn't want to be like this forever!
