Rip Tide (Quotes)

I had to get clear of the town.  Had to surface now.  I pushed my speed.  Didn't even break my stroke to pull off the lampreys, though their bite burned and their heavy soft bodies thumped against my chest.

My eardrums throbbed as I swam against the tide, yet I couldn't make any headway.  A powerful undercurrent was keeping me pinned beneath the town.  I dove deeper to escape its drag, only to find that the undertow was even stronger closer tot he seafloor.  So strong I was nearly swimming in place, unable to reclimb the water column, and I was growing weaker by the second.  Close to blacking out.  Only terror kept me conscious.
