Riding The Wave

I'm your typical Malibu Barbie as some people call me. I live my life travelling around, and basically surfing. However, after my mom passes away surfing becomes difficult for me, the typical summer drama comes up, and I begin to feel lost within myself. I feel like I won't be able to live through this summer, until I finally let Harry get to me...


5. Part 5

I woke up around one in the afternoon. Mel was already gone, meaning she probably went home because her parents wanted her home. I got up and felt my head pounding, took some Advil, and changed into my white fringe bathing suit. I walked to my garage and pulled out my surfboard and ran outside. The beach was packed but I didn’t even care.

“Good morning sunshine.” I looked over and saw Grant with Jay, Tyler, Mac, Toby, and all the new guys from last night.

“What do you want Grant?”

“Are you actually surfing with others in the ocean?”

“Since I didn’t get home until when I normally get up, yeah…I’m surfing. I looked away and started towards the ocean. I dove in, making my way to the surf which is where I saw Mel.

“BETHANY!” I paddled over to her and sat up on my board.

“Hey, I thought you went home.”

“Nah, I came out to surf about an hour ago.”

“I wish I was able to come out an hour ago.”

“You were sleeping your hangover away, which you probably still have.” I laughed and splashed her with water.

“Hey girls.” Mel and I turned to see Grant and Mac in the water.

“You left the poor boys alone?” I asked sweetly.

“Nah, they’re with Toby and Jay.” Grant pointed out. “See?” I rolled my eyes as I saw the perfect wave coming up.

“GOT IT!” I yelled, I turned and started to paddle. Once I felt the wave behind me, I stood up and started to drop into the wave. I bit my lip as I felt the wind in my hair as I rode the wave. I started to enter the tube and ducked a little. I stuck my hand in the water slightly as I came out of the tube. When I came out, the wave started to die down and I dropped bck to my stomach. I sighed and paddled back to the group.

“Nice.” Mel high-fived me and Grant was smiling.

“You’re great.”

“Shut up Grant, I know.” Grant and Mac rode the next wave in while Mel and I were out there until around seven. Around seven, we went back to the bar and grill for dinner.

“HEY, MEL, BETH!” Mac yelled towards us.

“We’re with them.” We said, pushing past people. We grabbed chairs and joined them all there.

“How was the surf?” Grant asked.  

“Amazing.” I sighed.

“You’re really good.” Harry said, nodding towards me.

“Thank you.” I smiled slightly as Jay brought us over our usual.

“Thanks Jay!” Mel said as we started inhaling the food like we haven’t eaten in months.

“Are you two hungry or something?” Mac asked, making us both flip him off.

“No one fucking asked you.” Mel mumbled. After dinner, we all headed back to the beach. It was practically empty because most people were home for dinner. The guys were showing the new guys how to surf while Mel and I were watching.

“You know, they’re kind of cute.” Mel pointed out.

“I thought you wanted Grant?”

“I do…but he’s still strung up on you so I need to make him jealous.”

“Grant doesn’t get jealous.”

“He will; you have to help me get with all the new guys.”

“I’m not helping you with that.”

“Okay well all of them but Harry- he’s yours since you saw him first.”

“Oh my god, you’re ridiculous! I’m not helping you bang a bunch of British guys that won’t even be here after the summer ends!”

“That’s even more of a reason to bang them all because I won’t see them ever again after this year!”

“No, I’m not helping you with that.” I shook my head and Mel nudged me.

“It’ll happen.”

“What will?”

“I’ll get Grant to like me.”

“Okay Mel; whatever you say.” For the next couple hours, we watched the boys and then afterwards we all went back to my place to watch some TV.

So far, this was the best beginning to summer that I’ve ever had. I honestly didn’t want this summer to end; it was perfect. Or, so I thought…
