5. Fun in Plymouth

Once I've finished my afternoon with Tom, I headed home and packed all my stuff, there wasn't really much to pack, as, if I'm honest I hadn't even began to start unpacking my stuff from when I arrived here. The first night I got here, I just wanted to sleep, then the days after that, all I wanted to do was swim. I packed all my stuff into my car and headed to Jane's house.   I was now lying on the bed in my Godmother's house, after a tired day, I'd unpacked all my belongings, and they were firmly in place in my new room. I pulled my phone out my pocket to check the time, 9:08. I instantly remembered about Tom and how I hadn't sent him a text yet, and I left him just after 4 o'clock.. oops. I immediately took the piece of ripped paper he gave with his 11 digit number on and entered it into my phone.   To: Tom x   Omg, I'm so sorry about how long I have actually taken to text you my number!!:-( I've been unpacking all my stuff, sorry!:/ But well, here it is! Thanks for today too!:-) .xxx     I spent half of my time debating whether to put three kisses at the end, but I did anyway, and sent it. Within a few minutes I got a reply.   From: Tom x   Don't worry about it! It's fine, I knew you were busy!:-) It's not a problem, we should do it again some time!;-) Are you down at the pool tomorrow? xxxx   To: Tom x   We should, asap!;-) Yes I am, not till about 12 though xxxx   From: Tom x   I'll see you there then, don't get too excited to see me;-) xxxx   Me and Tom continued texting for about an hour, before I slacked off and went to bed, I had a tiring day indeed.   *****   I woke up the next morning at half 11, I put all my swimming stuff in my bag, got dressed, did my hair and make-up, and headed downstairs. I did wonder myself why I do my hair and make-up, as my hair is just going to get ruined in the water, and my make-up would just come off, but I felt better with myself in the morning getting ready, so it was for my own benefit rather than anyone else's. Cooked myself some toast, and sat in the kitchen. I was only there a few minutes before Jane came in and gave me some company.   'Where are you off today then?' Jane asked.   'Just swimming, you don't mind do you?' I responded to her question, adding a question on the end.   'No of course I don't! That pool is practically your second home!' She told me, I smiled at her in response. 'Who were you with yesterday then?' She winked at me.   'Uh.. Tom' I told her, trying to fight the smile that appeared on my face.   'Tom who?'   'Tom Daley' I told her, biting my lip as it moved into a smirk.   'The diver?' She asked, I nodded in reply. 'Good girl' She smirked, I couldn't help but laugh. 'Are you meeting him today? Is this why you're up so early, dressed and ready?'   'Yep' I giggled, putting my head down and I could feel myself turning a light shade of red.   'Don't do anything I wouldn't' She winked.   'Right I'm going before this conversation goes any further' I laughed, before giving her a hug and a kiss on the cheek. She never failed to make my morning a good one.   'Bye!' She laughed, as I walked out the door, got in my car and headed towards to the swimming centre. When I arrived, I parked my car, surprisingly, next to Tom's. So it was obvious he was here already. I entered the centre, and heading straight towards the changing rooms, I changed into my costume, and tied my hair up in a bun at the top of my head, shoved my stuff in my locker, and walked out towards the pool, it was a bit early.. well quarter to twelve, and the pool was closed to the public for training only, so there was no one here, I felt quiet anxious as no one was here.. I knew Tom would be here soon though, well he was here, as I parked my car next to his. I always thought his number plate was clever, as it being personalized, 'D1V333', I began walking to the other side of the pool, well, I was walking until I felt a pair of hands on my waist and push me into the pool, following me. I had a slight heart attack, and let out a small scream, I pulled my head up from beneath the water to find no one but Tom Daley there giggling to himself.   'Oh my god Tom! Never do that again, I had a heart attack!' I laughed, pushing the water from my face.   'I'm sorry, I couldn't stop myself, you were just there..' He smirked.   'Don't worry, you're forgiven' I grinned at him, swimming to the end of the pool.   'Fancy a race?' I winked at him.   'Only if you dive with me later!' He responded to me.   'I can't dive' I confessed to him.   'I'll teach you.' He smirked at me.   'Ok then, it's on' I told him, as we began racing each other doing lengths of the pool.
