(ooc: i realize now that im pretty sure you said you’re a lifeguard and i literally have no idea what im doing in this thread so hopefully i haven’t been dreadfully wrong in how to teach someone to swim yet……)

[They were definitely a strange duo, but that had been apparent from early on—their first few interactions had been a little rocky, but it hadn’t taken too long to broker a sort of understanding between them. Strange, considering how they would usually be acting like cats and dogs back home, but it was amazing what a level playing field like that which the CDC provided could change things.

Speaking of dogs: Juuzou does seem to be doggy-paddling at present, but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. It was one of the best ways to learn how to actually swim. This probably wasn’t something he was going to learn in one day, and even with that in mind he was doing fairly well.]

That’s good. It’ll take some practice, but you just have to figure out what will keep you afloat.

[He observes Juuzou for a moment.] Your kicking is fine, but just—try to straighten out a bit, like you’re standing, keep kicking and try to move your arms like this.

[Like how Kaneki is treading water a few feet away, arms tracing wide and sweeping motions in keeping himself afloat with… a good deal less flailing than Juuzou was doing… we’ll get you there, buddy.]
