“The Pool knows when you’re ready.”
Jonathan sat back in his chair. The woman and the little girl looked bloated and blue. The look of bodies after they are pulled out of water. The woman’s clouded eyes looked stunned as Jonathan explained the Pool rules to her. It always amazed him that most souls had no idea of their predicament. The little ones always seemed to have an inclination though. Jonathan smiled at the little girl, and she smiled a drooped smile back. The lady’s eyes regained some form of light, at least as much as they could regain. She looked to be coming out of the trance that Jonathan had put her in.
“Anyway. Here’s your room key. It’s room number one, the first door on the left. Hope you enjoy your stay at the motel.” Jonathan gave the woman a big smile. It was always room number one. It was the room closest to the Pool gate.
“Thank you, sir, it has been a long drive from Texas. Me and Emma are dead on our feet.” The dead woman said. Her voice reminded Jonathan of an old movie he’d seen once with a creature who had come out of the water. Brown Sludge dripped from her blue lipped mouth as she looked down at the little girl and tried to smile.
Jonathan’s smile got bigger. “Oh, I’m sure you are. The road will do that to you. You guys go get some rest now. It was good meeting the both of you.” He went along with the woman’s story she was telling herself, as he did with everyone who came through the motel door. It was important that they found their own way.
The bloated lady grabbed the little girls hand and shuffled out of the door with wet squishy steps
