Not once did that pond shrink or grow whenever there was a large rainfall or a drought. Jordan first noticed that something was strange with the pond during the winters when everyone would ice skate on it. The whole town would all gather around the pond and watch people skate around. It was a tradition that lasted about 30 years, and every year, when nightfall came around, the pond would glow, yet no one in the town wondered how it did that.
The next day, they both went to the pond to see if they could summon this person that they thought was trapped. Peter decided to go into the water with some goggles and flippers, since Jordan had many nightmares of the water since her last encounter with the pond. He dove in as Jordan held onto a rope that was tied to his ankle in case something happened. He dove in, right after telling Jordan, “Don’t tell my mom we did this”, and was under for about 30 seconds until Jordan started panicking and pulled him out. “What you do that for? I was so close to that hole! I’m going back in, but this time wait at least 2 minutes” Peter yelled. Jordan complied and waited 2 minutes and pulled him back up. The rope felt heavy and she was trying her best to pull him up, but when the end of the rope came up, it was empty, so she dove in looking for him. In the water, she found Peter tangled up in silvery string that glowed and she pick him up, carrying him to the surface of the water. When she put him on the floor, the string disappeared and Jordan started bombarding Peter with questions, but Peter had lost his voice and wasn’t able to speak ever again.
