Swimming Lessons - [Open]

Characters: Sora, Namine, Xion, Roxas, and anyone else who wants to join in!
Content: Sora decides to give some swimming lessons to whoever may need them
Location: The pool at the recreation deck
Time of Day: Midday
Warnings: None so far

Sora couldn’t even remember the last time he’d used the recreation deck’s pool for a swim...they’d been busy with a lot of things lately, and sometimes the pool had been off-limits. It felt pretty good to just get on his trunks and jump back into the water, even if this time it wouldn’t be for relaxing so much as education.

He tread water in the shallow end of the large pool, waiting for Xion, Namine and Roxas to join him there so that they could get started. He figured that they wouldn’t much go into the deep end on the first lesson, but luckily there was plenty of space on both ends of the pool. It’d be interesting trying to teach this to people his age, considering his learned how to swim when he was very young...practically at the same time he learned to walk. As such, a lot of it was just instinct for him. But his friends couldn’t rely on that, so he’d have to try a different approach.

Like Sora, it'd been some time since Riku'd used the pool himself, though he was certainly no stranger to the Rec Deck. He always looked forward to swims, at times closing his eyes and pretending he was back home. ...Minus the sound of the rushing waves above and the inevitable initial sting of saltwater in cuts he didn't realize he had before diving in. Still, back home there were always days that the ocean laid completely still, and underwater all you could hear was the rush of water made by your own limbs.

Riku tossed a towel to the side as he showed up in his trunks, giving a hint of a wave and a one-sided smile to them in greeting. He wouldn't interrupt. Looking around, Riku frowned a little in disappointment. Namine wasn't there. ...At least he knew he'd see her in the early evening. They often did nowadays.

Though he approached from the deep end, water depth didn't deter any kid from the Destiny Islands. Riku stood poised briefly before slipping into the water with a quiet dive. From there he swam up to the others.
