Across The Ocean

Working long hours at a beach shack on hot summer day's doesn't make your summer the worse. You know your summer's worse when the minute your best friend leaves to camp and her brother turns out to have a crush. But that's not bad even, it gets worse when you start dating him and then when your friend returns and finds out the truth on her own. Will Amanda and James live happily ever after or will their fairy tale at the beach come to an end?


8. On the Beach

I wake up the next morning with a huge grin on my face. I am working today and that means I will be seeing James. I don't really know what has happened between us...but...I kinda like it... I put  on my work uniform and toss a change of clothes in a floral white bag.

 I put the bag in the trunk of my sky blue car just in case I have to run some errands after work.

Pulling out of my blacktop driveway, I drive away from my cute little white house. I pass James' house on the way to work (like I do every day, it's the only way to my work) to see if I can catch a glimpse of him. I don't and I continue on my relaxing drive to work. Today was a perfect day. We were having nice enough weather for my sun roof could be down.

I pull up to the beach and I am really excited. I take a deep breath and play it cool. I walk into the only door on the side of the sack and check in. After checking in I started up the new oil for the fries and started grinding up beef patties for the hamburgers and tacos for later that day. I sigh the excitement now leaving me. James is still not here yet and he's going to be late..once again. I roll my eyes as I finally see him walk by the ordering window winking at me.

"Oh you're here early" I say to him in a sarcastic tone.

"I always try to make a good impression" he sarcastically replies.

I roll my eyes once again and say "Its good to see you're making an effort."

He smiles to him self. His hands were in his back pockets as he was walking into the employees only area. "Looks like were both working the kitchen" he says as I walk into the back room.

"Huh, would you look at that" I say without looking up. I was focusing on what  I needed to get done before the lunch rush.

"Hey" he says

"Hey?" I say turning around leaning on the counter.

"So, there's this movie at the beach tonight" he states moving closer to me.

"So I heard"

He smiles moving closer to me to the point where our faces were just inches apart. "I was wondering if you would want to go with me."

"Sure," I say biting my lip I go in to 'kiss' him but I stopped before I did to get him irritated.. its cute when hes irritated."I'll meet you there" I turn around and I see in the corner of my eye he was irritated.

"Sounds like a plan" He replies

I smile to my self continuing with my work. Our boss walks into the back room and he seems angry...I don't blame him. "James!"


"Please stop flirting with Amanda and do your work"

I blush and I know James is also blushing most likely.

"Yes sir" he replies walking to the station right next to mine.


"Hey" I say walking up to James. I just arrived at the beach once again. The movie was starting in about an hour. We got there early to get a good spot. The sun was setting as we laid down the blanket. 

"I'll be right back" he says walking away from the blanket. He walks away his dark green shirt snd tan shorts blending in with the crowd.

I look down and smooth out the white dress the I was wearing and I smooth out my long brown wavy hair as well. My blue eyes scan the beach looking for James.I finally see him walking back to me with a picnic basket and something behind his back. He smiles sitting down next to me and setting the picnic basket to his left side. 

"I got you this" his right hand is holding a rose.

"Aw thanks" I say taking the rose from him. I smell the rose and I set it on my lap. "Thanks" I say once again.

"You're welcome" He replies kissing my head. I smile looking at the sunset right in front of us.

"Want some popcorn?" He asks pulling out a plastic container that reads popcorn.

"Sure" I reply smiling. We started to talk about random things. The movie was starting and It seemed like James and I were only talking for seconds but really it was around an hour.
