Selling Water to the Ocean

"I know a lot of fish," she said, "not that you need any."
(She had always loved to swim)
"and I would like to teach them how to breathe, especially underwater."
"Well," said the Ocean, "what exactly are you looking for?"
"A partnership," she said
"A place," she said
"Then what do you need from me?" the Ocean asked.
"Nothing," she said
"Just your water," she said
"Oh," said the ocean, "Is that it?"
"and the ability to breathe underneath you," she whispered.
