Shallow Water [bxb] (#Wattys2016)
"They laughed. They sneered. They hated me.
They had me pinned to the floor. My arms and legs were held back while Tony, the leader of the "gang" straddled my stomach and stared ruthlessly down at me. It was hard for me to breathe as I was already out of breath from thrashing around, trying to escape from my own team members."
Rei decides he has had enough of his teammates' torments and seeks refuge in a high school named Seaside High, where his rival, the all-star Kyle Dison, goes to. Although Rei expects to find peace there, Kyle has his own agenda which interferes with Rei's plan.
After being told what Rei was like and why he left Hammerhead high by Tony, the antagonist behind Rei's suffering; Kyle sees the exact opposite of what has been said which makes him want to get back at Tony for lying to him (and for other unknown reasons), so he makes it his sole mission to find out what is going on between Rei and Tony to expose what Tony is doing and has done.
This is a problem for Rei because he wants to leave his past behind and try to heal from everything he went through, this also, so happens to be a problem for Kyle because he needs Rei to take Tony down.
What will happen? Will Kyle ever find out Rei's darkest secret or will Rei hold onto it to avoid causing a huge mess?
Will Rei be able to deal with more stress and still win in first place at swim meets?
