"Excuse me." Wakana asks the man beside her, "Is there something in the river?"
The question is wrong. She knows well that the forsaken ones are swimming in the river instead of the fishes. But it doesn't seem like this man would be gazing at the forsaken ones, especially if it's a legendary faceless man. He doesn't seem evil at all but he's a little creepy.
Is it that she can't see his face or he doesn't have any face at all? How could his eyes work though? Light enters through the eyes and forms an image. There's some signal thing. Why is her brain even trying to find logic in this situation? According to science, ghosts shouldn't exist.
For an instant, she feels a cold hard hand on her back. Before she could turn around and look at the faceless man again, there's a hard push. She finds herself falling through the mist. As the surface of the river draws closer, Wakana screams.
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
