Taking the plunge.


Panel 1: Heather carefully proceeds back down the steps, gripping the railing.

Panel 2: She steps down onto the floor. The burst pipe and pool of water are visible in the frame.

Heather: Is anyone still there? I— I’m not sure what I’m seeing.

Panel 3: She stops before the pool. Her legs and feet are bare in its reflection.

Panel 4: She looks down, seeing her own face without the helmet or suit in the reflection. Behind her, the world is mirrored and split, much like how things look through a kaleidoscope.

Panel 5: She lifts one foot.

Panel 6: Then, she plunges down into the water.
