As her eyes adjusted, she saw a pool of water that rippled every time a drip fell from the ceiling. As hard as she could squint, she could not see more than five feet above her.

She scolded him and moved to drink again.
“OUCH. Alright, you pest!” She screwed the lid back on and returned the jar to her pocket.
