Benedetto gave him an uneasy glance, then looked away, biting his lower lip.
“I won’t let you drown,” Morello said. “Get undressed.” Morello splashed into the shallower water, giving the man a moment alone.
“Don’t look,” Benedetto called out needlessly.
“I will have to look at you some time,” Morello replied. The sun had warmed the water here. “I can’t teach you to swim with my eyes closed. Think of it as an anatomy lesson.” His instinct told him this was more than modesty, so he turned away and steeled himself not to react to a horrible scar or oozing rash when Benedetto finally splashed into the water behind him.
