He actually wanted to teach her surfing. But that plan changed as soon as he found out that she couldn't even swim. Now all she was doing with him was learning to paddle in the baby-pool.

All around her little children and babies were staring at her, making gurgling sounds or just pointing at her and giggling. She felt embarrassed and would gladly let the water swallow her whole.

"Are you listening to me?" he asked, interrupting her inner turmoil.

She looked at him, then at the little chubby child next to them, then back at him. "No..." she replied, finally collecting her thoughts enough to come up with something to say.

"Well... listen or you'll be doing four more hours today of paddling."

She looked back at him, then at the chubby boy who was now grimacing at her. With determination she stood up, the water only coming up to her calves. She looked down at him, and then raised her eyebrow daring him to challenge her.

"I have decided that I don't need to learn to swim! Antar is made of at least 80% desert. Therefore, learning to swim goes against our nature."

"Tess!" said AC sternly.

She didn't even let him finish, just stepped over the edge and started to walk away from the pool.
