Rosanna By The River

Halfway down a snow-capped mountain, there begins a twinkling film of water that barely covers the sediment beneath. This trickle becomes a stream, which passes though a village. Our setting is found further on. After the village comes a town, and after the streams starts a river. It is in this town that our protagonist lives, and it is beside the river, a little way down, that our story begins.

Here, the current is strong and the rumble of water resonates throughout the lush valley. There are rocks of different sizes dotted along the riverbank. The river is about twenty metres wide and the bottom is further than I can swim.
