And I actually thought my mum had been joking. But, apparently
not. I looked around the campsite, trees, mud, water, wood,
I was late to arrive, since I had decided to be late for the bus
and hope I wouldn't have to go. Unfortunately my mum took it upon
herself to drive me here herself.
I grabbed hold of the handle to my case and tugged it to a log
building that looked important. I reached the steps and looked
up, at the door was a man leaning against the door frame. He was
wearing blue jeans and a leather jacket, paired with sunglasses
and cowboy boots. Charming.
"Excuse me, do you know where…" I stopped mid-sentence and
glanced at the piece of paper in my hand "Cabin 5 is?"
He looked my up and down and then slowly nodded. He pushed
himself off the door frame and brushed past me, I quickly
followed him; hopefully he was showing me to my cabin.
The camp was huge, I had spotted a map on the way in the cabins
were spread far from each-other. My cabin was near a lake, the
problem was, I had no idea where the lake was. I saw no-one else
as he led me down a path and into an opening, next to a lake. I
blushed on how obvious it must have been to him.
He strode over to a wooden cabin and knocked on the door, there
was a commotion before the door was answered by three girls
standing close to each-other.
The man looked over them with calculating eyes before asking:
"How many beds?" his voice was rough and gravely, with a small
hint of calm mixed in, the type of voice you expected in the
"Three" offered a dark haired girl, the white-blonde next to her
nodded and the dark brunette didn't move. The man turned around
and walked back to the path, he turned when he reached it and
gestured for me to follow. Slightly confused I did so, it was my
cabin wasn't it?
Three beds, three girls.
Damn, I was already creating a problem and I had only been here
I walked after him as he entered the building I had first saw him
in, I stopped at the steps and waited, he gave me a considering
"There seems to of been a mix-up with the cabins, we have three
girl cabins and three boy cabins, the only available place it
seems is…" he stopped for a second then - "the boys"
My heart sank, great, a month of free time wasted and I had to
waste it in a cabin of boys, joy, oh joy.
I nodded my head, but didn't let my misery show on my face; I
would have to endure worse if I stayed at home. My mum would
think I had somehow caused this, and a suspecting mum would be
the last thing I wanted.
The man set off again, this time towards another lake-path. I
trailed after him, my black suit-case dragging along the floor on
He reached another clearing; a lot of trees separated this
clearing from the other. He went up to a cabin, which was almost
identical to the other. Except it had an overhang over the door,
and the door was painted a golden-yellow.
He knocked, and a second later a boy answered the door. He had
long (As in, too long for a boy) golden hair and sparkling blue
eyes, his skin was a delicious light caramel and he was of a
skinny build. An easy smile lit up his face as he saw the man; it
didn't change as it dropped to me, although his pose became
slightly less inviting.
"Cameron, there was a mix-up with the cabins. This young lady" he
gestured to me "will be sharing a cabin with you, Skylar and
Cameron frowned slightly but nodded, then, without a backwards
glance at me the man walked off, leading me staring dumbly at
Cameron. He gave me a comforting smile and opened the door wider.
I walked past him into the cabin. There were two bunk-beds and a
normal bed, the two bunk beds close to each-other and the normal
bed slightly apart.
A bag already lay on the normal bed and the two bunk beds so I
lay my bag on a bottom bunk. I dragged my suitcase across the
room and pushed it under the bed.
Cameron closed the door then sat on the other bottom bunk.
"So, what's your name?" his voice was like his hair, honey-like
"Angel" I replied, observing the cabin further. Posters of bands
littered the walls, coke bottles were stacked on a draw-set and
deodorant littered a table with a mirror.
"I'm Cameron" he answered, already aware I knew his name "And
welcome to camp Beech-More"
