I woke up with sun streaming onto my face. The chirping of birds
was a sweet, melodious sound. I smiled; I had the whole day to
relax in the sun, maybe going swimming. I could hear Zeke humming
away in the kitchen. Zeke… I crash-landed back to reality.
After I dressed in a pale blue and yellow dress, I headed into
"Morning," Zeke said, happy as ever.
"Morning," I replied sleepily.
"Has Aimee already left?"
"Yeah she has," he replied, placing bacon and eggs on my plate.
"So, I was thinking today maybe we could go back to the lake,"
suggested Zeke, smiling at me hopefully.
"Sure," I managed a smile without looking too strained.
We finished breakfast quickly, and packed a few belongings, plus
food, into a bag.
The walk was quick and silent; we didn't seem to have much to
say. This gave me a chance to mull things over, but also chance
to sneak a look or two at Zeke. His eyes were mesmerizing green
and the colour of his hair was what I imagined chocolate mixed
with caramel to look like. He was strong and sturdy; he had
easily lifted me up the other day. He always had this cute smile
on his face, and he quiet and thoughtful. Not much to hate, at
least in my opinion.
"Indi." His voice brought me back down to earth.
"Yep… sorry. I was on another planet."���
He laughed and I blushed a pale shade of pink.
"Let's swim." He said, heading for the water.
I ran in after him, the cold hitting my bare legs. The rays of
the sun warmed me, while the water cooled me. The effect was a
Slowly, I came up behind Zeke and splashed him.
"Argh!" he screamed, as the cold water hit his back.
"Oh!�You're so going to get it now!" He called, laughing as he
turned around to chase me.
I half ran through the knee deep water, trying to avoid slowing
down. Behind me, the sounds of splashing water stopped. I paused.
"Gotcha!" cried Zeke, wrapping his arms around my waist.
I turned around to face him, and found myself staring into his
eyes. The water around was still and the sun was shining upon us.
He stared into my eyes, moving his head ever so slightly closer
"Zeke…" I began.
Before I could finish my sentence his lips were at mine. His kiss
was at first timid and cautious, but as I grew more confident; so
I allowed myself to be swept away in the moment, I couldn't hear
a single thing. Any chills I had from the water had evaporated,
my heart had taken over my mind.
Slowly, he pulled away. I blushed as he reached for my hand.
Together, we waded towards the grass.
We sat on our towels enjoying the sun and each others company. We
ate our lunch, and time just seemed to slip away. It wasn't until
the sky gradually began to darken that I realized how late it had
become. We packed our things slowly, not wanting to leave this
place that was now so special to us.
"You know, Aimee is going to have a fit when she hears about
this," I said, laughing at the thought.
"You're right. She'll claim I 'stole you' or something like
that." He replied, laughing that angelic laugh I loved.
"But, she's become a really good friend of mine. And I have a
funny feeling she suspected something was going on."
"Yeah," he replied hesitantly.��
Hand in hand, we strolled back home. I couldn't comprehend that
in 2 days I was going home. I glanced at Zeke. Oh well, I
thought. I'll worry about that when the time comes.
NOTE: I would like to thank my AWESOME friend Alice for her help
with this chapter :)
