Tentacles in My Pool
by Heather Lunt
Hoping a swim would help cool her off, a photographer goes skinny dipping in her backyard pool. While doing laps, she notices a palm frond stuck in the pool skimmer. Thinking she'd clear the skimmer after her swim, she continues her laps. As she swims near the skimmer, a part of the palm frond curls around her ankle and tugs. She tries to kick it off, but it only grips tighter. Can she get away?
