Marlene has a mysterious connection with the water, even if she doesn’t know it yet.
Agonising after her sister’s sudden death, both Marlene and her aunt/carer Kristina try to come to terms with the tragic nature of what has happened.
In this edition of the English Short Stories series, the reader is prompted to think about possible motivations behind the actions of the main characters and use the clues in the story to uncover the truth behind what happened to Marlene’s sister.
