is this word order wrong? "Sub pavimento rapide aqua fluit"

No, although the adverb is usually right in front of the relevant verb: rapide fluit.

I moved around the word order, to achieve the surprise (as I thought it) of water being under the floor: Sub pavimento rapide fluit aqua.

But it wasn't accepted.
