A summer of a Lifetime

Julie Daniels had a perfect life. She had it all. She was popular and pretty and had the best of friends. But then it all turned around. Her boyfriend broke up with her and started a terrible rumor about her. Her friend all bailed and she started getting bullied regularly. Finally it became too much. She nearly killed herself and after a long stay at a specialized hospital her parents took her and her little brother on a long vacation. Little did she know that this vacation would lead her to meet James.


3. The Buccaneer and it's other residents...

I was awoken by the sun blasting in through the windows. Everyone else was still sleeping so I carefully got out of bed to avoid waking Joey and put on a red training bra and some sweat pants. I was gonna go for a run on the beach. I grabbed my iPod and put on some upbeat music. I jogged all the way to the end of the beach and stopped for a breath at the end. After a minute or two I started a sprint back.

I was so caught up in it that I didn't even notice that someone else was on the beach. I slammed into him and fell backwards before I could stop myself. My earplugs flew out of my ears and I scrambled to my feet. The boy from yesterday was sitting in the sand next to me. "Oh God I am so sorry." I said. Luckily my face was already flushed from my run so it couldn't get any redder. "This is the second time I bump into you!" "It's alright. The first wasn't your fault and this was half my fault. I should have watched where I was going." "No no it was me." "We aren't getting anywhere with this so lets just let it go. I'm James." He smiled and extended his hand to me." "Julie." I said and shook it.

He held it a bit too long I noticed. "So how long are you here for?" He asked. "Three weeks. You?" "Me too." We had started walking back to the hotel. "So who are you here with? Apart from that little boy from the plane? I'm assuming he is your little brother?" "Yeah he is. And it's just us and our parents." "How nice. I wish my sister was as quiet on planes as your brother but then again I can't really expect that from her yet." "Why? How old is she?" "Eight months." "Ah the golden age where they can't talk yet." I sighed. "Huh? You two seemed to be very comfortable around each other?" "Yeah but every now and then he just really gets on my nerves. But I like to think that that means I taught him well."

He laughed at that. "So is she the only sibling you have?" "Yes." By now we had reached my bungalow and I said goodbye. "I guess I'll see you around." He said and walked further down the beach. When I came in the others were slowly getting up and I hit the shower before getting dressed. They were all waiting for me to get ready so we could go to breakfast. At the breakfast buffet there was a glorious array of fresh tropical fruits to choose from. Vegetarian heaven! I filled up a huge bowl with all kinds of fruit and poured a little bit of vanilla cream on it. I looked over to see Joey filling up a bowl with Choco pops. I smiled at his little fat-feast and sat down.

After breakfast my parents wanted to go to the beach but Joey and I wanted to see the rest of the area. We were walking on the other side of the hotel grounds when we came across this gorgeous little smoothie shack. "Can we go in and have a smoothie Jules?" (Yeah he calls me Jules) His little face was lit up with hope. "Sure." We went in and sat down.

Suddenly his face turned grave. "Jules? I never said this but I want you to promise me something. Don't ever do that to me again." I knew what he was referring to. My attempt at suicide. I put a hand on his cheek and looked him in the eyes. "I won't. Don't worry. After I did it and you came to see me in the hospital and I saw how hurt you were I felt horrible. I felt so guilty. And I would never in a million years do that to you again." He nodded and finished his smoothie.

We went back to the bungalow to change into swim suits and met up with our parents. After playing around in the water with Joey for a while I got up to read for a bit. He made a pouty face but I just laughed at him and picked up my worn copy of Wicked. When it was time to get lunch we all went to one of the other restaurants at the hotel. "The Grotto" The food sucked but it was edible and we were all full after those burgers (Of course mine was vegetarian). Joey talked me into playing basketball with him on the little court by the beach. I must admit it was fun. We were at the beach for a whole day and all too soon the sun set.

We went back to the bungalow to find out where we were going to eat that night. We found a nice place in Christianssted and had the reception get us a cab. We were sharing the cab/minivan with another family. They were in there when we walked out to the cab. I was dressed in some short torn shorts and a t-shirt from a Bruce Springsteen concert I had been to at the Roskilde Festival. My auburn curls were tangled and flying everywhere and I had on my usual eyeliner and mascara.

I got in the back of the cab and looked up from my seat belt buckle. I looked straight into the green eyes of James. He smiled and  opened his mouth to say something but I gave him a glare and pointed subtly at my family. He chuckled and took the cue turning back into his seat. The woman next to him whom I guessed was his mother groaned and said "I cant find my wallet! Here take Amy for a minute." His face lit up as soon as he held the little girl in his arms. She was adorable with a little mop of red curls and the greenest eyes I have ever seen. I smiled at the sight and made a happy face so that the little girl laughed. I love doing that with babies.

The car stopped and we let the others get out first. James's dad went out and took Amy from him so he could scramble out of the car as well. When they were all out we went inside and the host showed us to our table. We were (Of course) in sight of James and his family. Between the appetizer and the main course I got up to go to the bathroom. I walked past his table and he looked up at me. I ignored him and went to stand in line for the toilet.

Between the guys and girls bathrooms there was a common room where the lines were. When the girl in front of me went in and we were alone he started talking. "Fancy seeing you here." "Hey. Is that little girl your sister?" "Yes." "My God she is adorable!" "Yeah she is. Your brother is cute too." "Don't ever tell him that! I will be hearing of it for months. Of course you can't really. He wouldn't know what you were saying." "So you plan on introducing me to your brother eh?" He asked with a mischievous smile and wiggled his eyebrows. "Shut up." I laughed and pushed at his chest.

My hands accidentally slid down to his stomach and I could definitely feel a six-pack. I pulled back my hands before my face got all red and the door to the girls bathroom opened. I slipped inside and... You know did my business and when I got out he was still there. "Did you even need to use the toilet?" I asked in a skeptical voice. "Well... No." He said and looked at the floor. I laughed and walked back out to my table.

When we had all finished we shared a cab with them again. It was some kind of deal that the hotel had with the chauffeurs on the island. I was sitting next to James. Our parents started talking and his mom handed him Amy. He was bouncing her on his knees when he saw me looking at her joyfull face and asked "You want to hold her?" "Sure." He gave her to me and I sat her on my knees and smiled at her. She doubted whether she could trust me but gave in and grinned a cute little baby grin. I started talking baby language to her.

Joey got a bit jealous and snuggled into my arm. I gave James Amy back and put my arms around Joey. He crawled closer and I dug my head into his brown mop of hair.The car stopped at our bungalow first and we all got out. When I ducked to walk past James in the car he very discreetly tucked a note into my shorts pocket. I smiled and jumped out of the car. That night after singing Joey his song I stirred for a while. Finally I gave in and went outside. On my way out I pulled the little flap of paper out of my shorts and it was a phone number. I typed it into my phone under the name "The gorgeous scott"
