This is not a romance story. It's an action-adventure western story set in 1912 India. How would Sam deter three crocodiles?


About thirty yards upstream, birds and monkeys chatter in a tree. In the shady river beneath. Peter surfaces cooly and wipes the hair from his eyes. He hums contentedly. Sam wanders up the riverbank in his dripping trousers. He notices Peter's wet clothes spread throughout a tree limb hanging low over the water and then sees Peter paddling around.
"Hey, Peter - I think you better get out now," said Sam.
 
You wouldn't normally use the name and the pronoun for the same person in a sentence.

What is surfacing cooly?
