Into the Blue

Evelyn is a surfer who lives in the sunny state of California. As she is preparing for nationals, she puts all of her heart, mind and soul into focusing on trying to win and get sponsored, but hits a small bump in the road. On top of that, when teaching surf lessons she meets some boys that only complicate things a little more. Life isn't meant to be perfect and she knows she will soon have to make a choice. Be with the boy that has transformed her life forever, or stick with surfing, the thing that has made her who she is.


7. Beach Volleyball

"I think we were just planning on going swimming! We are on vacation." said Zayn.

"Did you have something in mind?" Harry asked moving his eyebrows. I laughed 

"I was just wondering if you guys wanted to play some beach volleyball with me".

"I'm down!" said Louis.

The others agreed and I ran off to my car and grabbed the ball in the back seat. I quickly sat in my car and put my hair in a braid to the side. If I had known that we would be teaching lessons to these hot boys, I probably would have made more of an effort in getting ready this morning. But we were also at the beach, so at the same time I was glad that I looked natural.

Harry's POV:

Evelyn ran to her car to get the volleyball. The way her hair fell against her olive skin, her white teeth as she laughed. Every thing about her. She was amazing in so many ways. I had just met her and I already felt like she was extraordinary, as dumb as that sounded. She came back with her hair braided. Adorable. "You look pretty" I stuttered out. "Thanks!" she said smiling. Stupid. I should have said something more. I shook it off though. I would slowly show her how much I cared about her though. I had too.

Liam's POV:

I scrunched my eyebrows together when Harry told Evelyn she looked pretty. Of course she looked pretty, she was beautiful!! But why was he saying it?! Was he interested in her too?? My chest started to hurt as the thought of him and me fighting over a girl popped into my head. As best friends, we had all decided that we would not let a girl get in the way of our friendships. I would not let happen, but I really liked Evelyn. I would have to talk to Harry. and soon.

Will's POV:

Was everyone after Evelyn?? Harry telling her she looked pretty, Liam staring at him like he was going to punch him. I mean who wouldn't be, she was totally hot. If looks could kill, I'm pretty sure we would all be buried in the ground hours ago. But I didn't want to fight over her. Obviously she was going to be mine.

Evelyn's POV:

We went to a court. There wasn't too many people at the beach. The weekend would be packed for sure, but for now it was just a regular crowd. I was guessing it was about noon since the sun was high and I was already feeling sweaty.

"Okay how about Liam and Zayn are team captains?" Asked Niall.

"Sounds good!" I said as the rest of us got in a line.

"Okay Zayn you go first."

"I pick Evelyn." he said crossing his arms. I smiled as I walked over by him. I looked up at Liam's face and saw him smile. Oh how his face made me feel butterflies.

"I pick Niall." Liam said.

Everyone else got picked and in the end my team consisted of Zayn, me, Riley and Harry. Liam's team was him, Niall, Louis, and Will.

"Are you sure you don't want one of our players?" Louis asked.

"Why would we need another player? Its four on four..." Harry asked raising his eyebrows.

"Well you know... Cause you have a girl."

"ooooo" the boys on his team said.

I put my hands on my hips. It was becoming a regular motion with these boys."What is that supposed to mean?" I asked.

Lou just shrugged his shoulders. "He is the sass master." Niall pointed out.

"I don't need words to win. I let the game speak for itself." I said turning around.

"BURN." Zayn and Riley yelled while Harry high fived me.

We started playing. After a few points received by some nice serves by Niall, my competitive side decided it was time to turn the game around.

"Set me Zayn" I said. He smiled sneakily and Niall went to serve. Rylie passed it to Zayn, Zayn set me, and I approached to go hit and knew exactly who I was aiming for. I contacted the ball hard and hit Louis right in the chest. He lost his balance and fell to the ground. I landed and joined my team huddle where they laughed and gave me praise. Liam's team was laughing too, and thankfully Louis didn't take it personally. I smiled through the net.

"Okay. Want to play that way? Fine." he said whipping his arms on his shirt then winking. The next ball I hit at him again, and again. and again. My team ended up winning 25-13. Zayn had ended up being a really good setter, Harry was one of the best defenders I had ever seen and Rylie was a pretty good hitter. We went over to their side and told them good game.

"Who knew you were good at volleyball?" Liam asked as he pulled me from the other side and hugged me. It surprised me but he was a good huger.

"Well I did play a little here and there" I said as I let go. "Just some high school and club volleyball for a few years." I said shrugging. The boys all started yelling saying how that wasn't fair and pushing me around playfully. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't keep the smile off my face. I had played volleyball my whole life. How could you not living in California from 10 on? And it wasn't just your regular 'PE volleyball.' It was hard core and serious. But when life got way to hard to try and balance between that and surfing, I quit after graduating high school.We decided to go buy some sandwiches at Chabans since we were all starving.

"I just have to go grab my wallet." I said walking away.

"Wait I'll come with you!" Will said coming in my direction.

Will's POV:

"Your really good! Except that was not fair that you didn't tell us you have been playing your whole life" I said nudging her arm.

"My family is just big on sports." she said smiling at the ground.

"Oh yeah? Do they live near by?" I asked.Her eyes fell to the ground. The mood between us instantly changed.

"What's wrong?" I asked touching her arm.

"Well" she said pausing. "My parents live in Florida, and my brother goes to Colombia" she said. "I just miss them you know?" She said biting her lip.

"How long has it been since you've seen them?" I asked as I leaned up against her car.

"About 3 years." She said grabbing her purse out of her car. "I know that doesn't seem like that long, but to me, Its a lifetime. Connor, by brother, moved to New York for track and my parents wanted to move back home to Florida. I was just starting high school and I didn't want to leave." She said. "So I lived in with my aunt until a couple of months ago when I moved out on my own."

"I totally understand." I said walking back with her. "I miss my mom, dad, and sisters a lot."

"Where are they?" she asked.

"They live in Canada!" I said smiling.

"You're from Canada?" She asked raising her eyebrows.

"You'd never know huh?" I said winking.

"No I could totally see you being a mountain man with a big beard and plaid shirt she said laughing.

"Oh totally." I said rolling my eyes and smirking. "But you know what I have learned? It just makes me love them even more, and realize how much they do for me, ya know?" I said.

"So true!" She agreed. "They come when they can to my competitions, but lately they haven't been able to come."

"When is your next one?" I asked.

"In a month." She said.

"I will come watch you! Maybe I'll even make a shirt with your face on it." I said nudging her arm. She burst out laughing.

"That would be great! I mean the coming part. You don't really have to make shirt." She said smiling.


Evelyn's POV:

Will was so sweet. The fact that he already wanted to come to nationals showed how he cared. He was very attractive and I liked talking to him. I felt like I could just be myself. We got back to the group and walked over to Chaban's. We walked in and of course Rita would be our waitress.

"Hi welcome to Chaban's!" She said. Her voice reminded me of that cheerleader-in-a-movie-voice-that-is-so-fake-barbie-is-jealous type voice. Nothing like when I had met her. She took us to our table. "If you have any questions just let me know!" she said handing us our menus, and then winked at Harry.

My jaw dropped. "Wow she moves fast." I said under my breath.

Zayn laughed spiting his water back in his cup. "What was that love?" He asked chuckling.

"Nothing." I said quickly. I looked over at him reluctantly. He was just smirking at me, and had obviously heard what I had said. "Shhhh." I said.

"My lips are sealed." He whispered.

We ordered our food and waited. Niall started sucking the lemon seeds with his straw out of his lemon in his water and blowing them at our faces. Rita came back and sat down by Rylie at the end of our booth.

"Um.. Hi." Louis said slowly. "My name is Rita." She said putting her hand out to Harry who was sitting diagonally from her.

"Harry." He said. If I was Harry I probably would have said "Seriously?" but because he was a gentleman, he shook her hand.

"Evelyn you didn't tell me about your friends!" She said looking over at me.

"You guys know each other?" Liam asked.

"We are BEST FRIENDS." She said as she reached over Will and Liam and shook my arm awkwardly. I let a small smile appear on my face and looked down at my drink. We sat in awkward silence for a few minutes, mostly everyone just playing on their phones, me looking at my nails, Rita staring at Harry.

"Well I have to go get your food! Be back in a flash!" she said cheekily.

"She. is. so. annoying." Louis said right after she left.

"Lou that's not nice." Niall said.

"What its true! She's all 'I'm Rita!" he said putting his hand under his chin. We all laughed.

"Are you guys really friends?" Harry asked running his fingers through his hair.

"What do you think?" I said sipping my water. He just smiled back.

Rita brought back our food and thankful let us eat in peace. We didn't talk mostly, because we were all so hungry. When we finished we payed and left.

"I'll see you guys tomorrow!" I said. They all waved bye and we started going our separate ways. "Wait!" I heard. I turned to see Liam jogging over.

"Are you busy tonight?" he asked smiling.

"Yeah sorry I have work!" I said frowning being actually disappointed.

"Well maybe some other time then" he said smiling down at me. My cheeks were getting hot.

"Okay" I let out quietly.

"Bye!" he yelled as he jogged  off. I walked to my car. Was Liam flirting with me? Him made my heart beat fast. But... so did Will. And Harry was pretty cheeky too. I thought about the day as I drove home. This would be interesting.
