There was an extra boy.
When the others paired off, he was alone.
They chase him away.
Young lovers swim together in the current and the third wheel spins, waiting.
He follows them.
Maybe she will fall in love with the loser.
But she just floats, indifferent.
The man chases his friend away.
When it gets dark and quiet, the young couple cuddles.
They whisper in each other’s ears.
He gave up. He is cold.
Hmm. When the ducks pair off, do they decide who will die?
