Snacks. This boy knew her too well. Evelyn smiled gratefully, particularly for brownies, and then pushed herself to a seated position when she heard Malikhi stir. Before she could sit all the way up, he had sprung completely off the towel and tossed his shirt into the sand, sprinting towards the water and shouting over his shoulder about a race.

"That's not fair!" she shouted, laughing as she yanked off her shirt and shorts. Malikhi had a significant lead but she was small and fast and quickly caught up. They made it to the water at the same time though, and Evelyn shrieked as she splashed into the waves.

They were freezing cold, but still warmer than the Pacific Ocean off an Oregon beach would have been. She gasped as she popped back out of the water, and looked over at Malikhi, whose hair was a mess of soggy blond atop his head.

She smirked at him as she stood up, grateful again that she'd put her hair up. It would've been a nightmare to deal with if it was down. Then she thought of her lipstick and grimaced, wiping it off with the back of her hand. Between her scrubbing and the salt water, she was sure it all came off. Shame, too, because it complemented her orange swimsuit. She had picked it because of the tiny yellow turtles that dotted it, but she suddenly felt like a child for wearing something so playful.

"You're a cheater," she laughed, grinning at Malikhi. "And you're slow! You're a good swimmer, though, right? I don't want to haul you out of the water today."

  • I don't have you at home.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Mon Aug 6 18:38
    Malikhi heard Evelyn before he saw her, his eyes having been closed as he relaxed. The moment he heard her voice, he cracked open his eyes and turned his head to side to grin at her. He was pleased... more

      • In that case, we need a house.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Mon Aug 6 23:04
        Malikhi loved the feel of the water as he dove into the sea, holding his breath. It was delightfully cold but not so cold that he would freeze, making it a nice constrast to the warm sun above. He... more
        • Pecari!Evelyn Stones, Mon Aug 6 23:10
          Evelyn giggled and jumped when Malikhi tickled her legs and feet, and allowed herself to drift on the waves instead of landing again. He was in a playful mood and she enjoyed him smiling, the... more
          • Fair point, well made!Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Mon Aug 6 23:35
            Malikhi cracked an eye open, seeing Evelyn's face above him. That was a nice sight and idly wondered that, if in the instance that he fell of his broom, if her face would be above him then. He... more
            • Thank you, I'm here all week!Evelyn Stones, Mon Aug 6 23:55
              Evelyn didn't breathe a sigh of relief, for fear of swallowing sea water instead, but she certainly felt relieved. She'd managed not to alienate either of her two new friends so far, and she couldn't ... more
              • I hope you'll be here longer than that.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Tue Aug 7 13:03
                Malikhi felt Evelyn's wave crash into him, washing over his chest and shoulders. He was rather surprised that the small girl had managed to produce a wave of that size, given that she didn't seem to... more
                • Seven years since now they won't kick me!Evelyn Stones, Tue Aug 7 16:08
                  Evelyn was too excited to disagree with food-- not that she'd really ever disagree with food any other time either-- and allowed herself to be led back to the shore by Malikhi. She sort of wanted to... more
                  • Good because I want you with me.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Tue Aug 7 16:50
                    Malikhi flopped down onto his towel and pulled his rucksack closer, emptying it of the various food and snacks that he'd packed for their afternoon. He was having a good time, spending it under a... more
                    • You'll have to share!Evelyn Stones, Tue Aug 7 21:34
                      Evelyn was surprised by Malikhi's response, but knew she shouldn't be. Most students at Sonora were thoroughly magical, and most parents had different expectations for their developing child than... more
