..." I love spring break, don't you Will?" I sighed, spreading my arms against Will's light blue checkered bed sheets. " I tolerate it-", Will replied, his nose in a book as he sat at the foot of
the bed. " You mean, you tolerate C." Jenna piped in, turning the white swivel seat to face the bed...

Chapter One: The Brook

 Tossing my blue rain boots to the side, I crossed the bedroom doorway and leapt on Will's bed. His checkered blue covers enveloped lightly around me as I stretched out my legs-staring at the pink ceiling fan. I'm so bored...

" Don't jump on my bed, Cyrpus." Will announced, entering the room with a glass of lemonade. I sat up on the bed, pouting as I somewhat fixed his bedsheets while Jermey, Jenna, Mira and Shaun entered the room soon after. Silence entered the room as everyone sat in their respective courners; Shaun stared at his phone as Mira gripped his arm-quietly pestering him. Will sat one the stained white carpeted floor with a book in hand while Jenna sat on Will's desk seat, Jermey continually spinning her in a circle. This is so boring! We could be doing anything right now-a treasure hunt, I spy, hide n' seek, tic tac toe-anything!

" You guys want to play a game or something?" Shaun grunted from the other side of the room as he less than gently pulled Mira's hands off his arm. Finally-!

" Nah." Mira stated, grabbing Shaun's arm once more.

" I'm good." Jenna yawned.

" If no one else wants to play.." Jermey muttered. Shaun turned to Will, who blantly ignored him as he continued reading.

" Well shit, okay then." Shaun sighed, turning his phone screen on once more. No-!

" Lets go to the brook!" I exclaimed, facing my friends who exchanged unaffected glances. 

" If we do that, I swear-I'll hate this spring break." Mira replied, turning back to Shaun as he shrugged. I won't take no as an anwser!

" Come on!I love spring break, don't you Will?" I sighed, spreading my arms against Will's light blue checkered bed sheets.
" I tolerate it-", Will replied, his nose in a book as he sat at the foot of the bed. 
" You mean, you tolerate C." Jenna piped in, turning the white swivel seat to face the bed. Next to her, Jermey elbowed her shoulder as I frowned; I'll go to the brook-and in this situation, without them.

" Fine. I'm going-come if you want." I announced, sliding off the bed and pulling my black overall straps over my shoulders once more. Making my way to the door, I heard Will sigh-

" Alright. I'm comin-i'm comin." He muttered, putting the book he was reading so diligently back in the pink bookcase. I smiled triumpintly as I left the bedroom, retriving my cast away boots. Suddenly, someone tapped me on my shoulder-

" You better bring Willa back by 7:30, Cyprus." Will's mother scolded, I nodded-ignoring the fact that his mother was using the other name. 

" It's Will!" Will yelled from the bedroom as his mother rolled her eyes. She released me as I pulled on my blue shoes once more. Turning to face Will, my smile grew as everyone stood behind Will-waiting on me to unlock the door. 

" To the brook!" I announced, marching through the door. Less enthusiastic cheers erupted behind me as I began leading towards the back of Will's backyard and into the forest.

=====================================================================

" Live a little, Jenna!" Jermey exclaimed as he took a running start off the makeshift ledge and into the small lake that led away from the brook. As he splashed, I covered my eyes-the water cascaded me like a wave.

" Watch the little people!" I yelped, splashing Jermey in the face as he splashed back. 

" You should be playing in the kiddy pool then, 5"4." Jermey laughed as i threw another wave of water at him. Mira sat on the shore of the lake, next to Shaun who stared at me and Jermey playing. Will sat on a tree that loomed over the brook, somehow reading another book. His light blue jacket hung off the branch as the shade drew darker shadows on his white T-shirt. 

" Come on Shaun, come play with us!" Jermey laughed, catching Shauns eyes as his freckled cheeks turned a rosy pink. Did he space out and not notice he was staring? Nothing to be embarrased about, but okay. I took a deep breath and dove under the water of the lake, eyes closed tightly as I swam just above the bottom of the lake. The slightly lukewarm water practically followed me as I darted around the bottom of the lake like a fish. Popping out of the water, I was immediatly splashed by water from behind. Turning around, I broke out in laughter as Jenna stood; her curly black hair identical to her twins-soaked. Through her yellow shirt, her dark green sports bra showed prominetly as she glared at me. Stifling my laughter, I looked at the ledge to see Will smiling to himself; he must've pushed her.

" This is what spring break should be." I declared, floating on my back as I stared through the canopy at the slightly rosy tinted blue sky.
