Under the water, a whole different world. Reality is muffled, then disappears completely. Your heartbeat thunders and for just a few seconds you walk a land far stranger than your own. Alien beeps dapple the shifting sonic walls and you catch whispers on the warm, soothing breeze. An unnerving state of calm numbs your senses and your mind is overrun with dark shapes that moan and flit. Doors open and lids lift. Secrets reveal themselves to you, but before you have the chance to listen, the need for air clenches its fist around your lungs. You gasp as a force beyond your control pulls you from the water. Dripping, breathing, you sit up. Your pulse slows, but your imagination is still racing. Listen above.
