❝When you are in a garden which flowers do you pick? The most beautiful ones.❞

"I'd love to teach you to swim," Celeste agreed eagerly. She went into the other room to change into her bathing suit, still feeling a little bit self conscious of her scars. Thankfully, when Selene had stabbed her it had gone through the old wound that Kitra had given her upon their first meeting after stabbing her and electrocuting her with her lightning spear. Celeste had long since forgiven Kitra for that, in fact, it was a most fateful incident that had led to the two girls falling in love. If Kitra had never kidnapped her, then who knows what would have happened? Perhaps Celeste would have never found the girl she was destined for? Perhaps her family would still be whole or all dead? That was the funny thing about the past, it could have gone so many different ways but there was no use dwelling on it because the past was the past and the present is a gift. Just like today, from the way the warm sun seemed to allow them to bask in its rays, to the gentle lapping of the ocean against the boat.

Her second biggest scar was the one Gabriel had given her when he had smacked her upside the head with his sword. It was a gash that cut across the center of her chest which Raphael had clumsily stitched up. He had saved her life in doing that and while it led to a most unusual scar, she was no less thankful that he had managed to mimic what Lilim had done with a sterile thread and needle. "Ready to learn?" Out here there was no one to see these scars but Celeste, Kitra, and perhaps the fish that swam underneath their vessel. Celeste smiled and went down the ladder, easing herself into the cold grasp of the ocean. "It's a little chilly, but it feels nice since it's so hot out." Celeste began to tread water, moving away from the ladder so that Kitra could come down. "Now, you're gonna want to paddle by doing this," she showed Kitra the most basic of moves that would help keep her afloat.

Celeste's took Kitra's hands, using her legs to keep herself buoyant so that she might properly show her lover how it was done. "See? Just like that, you're already doing it!" Celeste beamed, Kitra was quickly catching on. "Here, try this stroke now," Celeste showed Kitra various strokes, she taught her how to hold her breath and managed to coax her to open up her eyes underneath the water. Sure it stung a little, but there was an amazing world beneath their feet that Celeste didn't want Kitra to miss. While she could turn into a mermaid and explore the deeper parts of seaweed and sand, she knew that Kitra would be limited to swimming closer to the boat. Celeste wasn't going to abandon her, she stayed right by Kitra's side, giving her little pointers on how to conserve energy.

"When you swim you don't want to move around too much so you keep your strokes small. Unless you're racing, then you give it everything you've got!" She giggled, recalling something Michael had once told her. "But otherwise, keeping it small means that you'll have more energy in the long run and can stay afloat for longer." Some days it felt like Celeste's energy was boundless and she would chart the undertow because it was a place no other angel dared to go.
