Chapter 1

Theo sat in the kitchen, watching his father from the window in the back door. He was sitting alone at the dock, looking at the lake. The deep waters quietly rippled from the movement of fish underneath the reflective surface

His father looked very wistful as if waiting for something. But what could he possibly be waiting for, on an abandoned dock in the country?

The wind suddenly picked up, blowing his father's hat off his head. It landed softly in the lake, causing small ripples in the water. Theo got up from his chair, deciding to tell his father to come back in when his father stood up and dusted off his pants…

And without warning, then dove headfirst into the lake.
