The Half-Sun

A jumble of thoughts crammed into his mind as he jumped up fixing his eyes on the water pooling at his feet. The water tunnel, had it been real? No, he shook his head and grimaced. “It couldn’t be!” He ran his fingers through his wet hair, but what other explanation could there be? He swiped the water off his arms and bare chest. His eyes squinted. “Did that tunnel lead to the surface? No, it was impossible!” He scowled, remembering that he had floated from the tunnel down to the root. He was sure he wouldn’t be able to float his way back up again, and anyhow, he was clientsep, and pretty sure that getting back to his client wouldn’t be as simple as floating.
