6. Volley Game

Two days had passed and I had already gained a summer romance. I was happier than I had hoped I would be this summer. The day after I was woken by Joey. They were all waiting for me to get ready for breakfast. I had been up till nearly four last night and I rolled over and groaned. But I pulled myself together and stood. I groaned again when I stood because my feet were sore from all the dancing I did last night. I scrambled to the bathroom and changed. At the breakfast buffet I looked like shit and I was a tad hungover. It didn't help my mood when my dad came to the table having overloaded his plate with bacon and sausage. It smelled horrible and I kept picturing a cute little pig getting slaughtered. I scrunched my nose and focused on my coffee and fruit salad. When the others were finally done we went back to the bungalow. I desperately needed a shower and Joey needed his bathing shorts for yet another day on the beach. I promised Joey that I would meet them on the beach after I had taken a run and a shower. I ran along the trail that went around the hotels golf course and it was a route of eleven kilometers. Back at the bungalow I got into the shower and allowed the cool water to cool down my sweaty body. I walked out wrapped in a towel and as if on que someone knocked on the door. I was in a real shitty mood and didn't even bother to pull on a pair of panties before opening the door. I had makeup from yesterday running down my face from the shower, my hair was wet and hanging down my back and all I was wearing was a towel. All together I looked like plain old shit. Behind the door James stood looking gorgeous as ever in a dark blue and slightly tight-over-the-chest t-shirt and a pair of swimtrunks. I froze in shock and closed the door. "Shit!" I cursed under my breath and called through the door. "I'll be there in a minute. Just let me put some clothes on!" I heard him chuckle through the door as I rushed about the room. Finally I was decent and opened the door. He had a goofy smile spread across his face. It annoyed me a little bit and when he opened his mouth to talk I could see in his eyes that he was about to make some joke about how I shouldn't open the door half-naked so I cut him short with a little push to his chest. "I don't wanna hear it!" I said. His stupid smile got wider and I turned around to get my beach bag. I filled it up and turned around again. "Did you want something?" I asked sounding harsher than I meant to. "Whoa. What's with the mood today gorgeous?" "Sorry. I didn't mean to sound mad. I'm just tired and a little hungover." He laughed at me. "Hey! I usually don't drink so I'm not used to it ok?" His laughing quieted down and he chuckled a little ok. "I just wanted to see if you were free for the afternoon." He said. I checked the time. It was only 10:30. "Yeah sure. I'll be at the beach all day." "Ok I'll come find you then." He smiled and followed me out the door. We parted ways on the little gravel path leading to the beach and I went to find Joey. He was near the edge of the water attempting to build a sandcastle. I dropped my bag at a lounger and sat next to him in my (slightly revealing) bathing suit. He smiled and shoved the sand with renewed energy and I helped him build it up.Very soon we had a pretty handsome result and I had my dad take a picture of the two of us beside it on my phone. Joey watched as I put it as my background. 

Later on after eating lunch James came to the beach to get me. I threw my things in my bag and kissed my mom, dad and Joey on the cheek before leaving. I saw my dad shooting him a warning stare and groaned pulling James away by the arm. "Come on." HE said simply and took the lead. He dragged me to the other beach on the east side of the hotel grounds where the ball games were. We went to the beach volley court and he ran out to get a ball from the little shack that held the entertainment. He came running back with it under his arm. "I want to see you play." He said in that gorgeous accent. "What?" "You told me you played volleyball. I want to play." He said with a shrug of the shoulders. "So do you think you can beat me?" "I don't know. You show me what you're made of" He said while walking closer to me imitating some gangster type guy. I stepped all up in his face and said "Oh it's on pretty boy." With a jerk of my head. We stood there staring at each other our lips quivering with held back laughter. Finally we both couldn't hold it back any more and we collapsed in laughter. I took the ball and we went on opposite sides of the net. I served and he made a failed attempt at ending it back. It went far out and he had to run after it. I laughed at him and let him serve it this time. Surprisingly enough it was almost a perfect serve but I sent it flying back. He countered but made a shot that gave me an option to smash. So I did. The ball flew to the ground before his feet and sand flew from the spot. We played for hours and somewhere along the road he took off his shirt. Now that was cheating! I could hardly concentrate when that body was on display. As much as I hated to admit it we was kinda good and it ended up being a sort of equal match. We said goodbye and agreed to meet there same time tomorrow.
