Summary
Around you the world is swirling. You pass through a submerged town, its steeples and trees barely visible through the thick water... In the distance the wreck of the gunship HMS Elizabeth lolls on a sandbank. Oil slicks the canals of the capital and even now the old men still tell tales of mermen in the shallows... A pool empty of water save for a brackish puddle and bones and hanks of fur on the floor, the remains of mice or possums that have tumbled in, lured perhaps by the moisture. Or perhaps by something else..
