4. Third meet

Melanie sat at her desk. She tried to concentrate on the differential math laying in front of her. But eventually she just stared out the window. She watched the waves flush in on the shore.
The beach was empty. It was almost all fall and winter.
But not today. There was one. He walked so close to the water his feet would get wet, when the waves hit next time.
But he didn't get his feet wet. He had in a big jump gotten just far enough in to not get hit be a single drop. 
She realized he played. She laughed a little and tried to look closer if it was a kid. It wasn't. But she knew who it was. It was the boy with worn, dirty clothes who had insulted her earlier that day. 
She felt the anger strike her. She and her family wasn't any reason that his stupid father had died. She hoped he would fall in the water and get wet. So she kept on watching him. 
He didn't fail once. He just kept going on. Walking. Jumping. Walking. 
It annoyed her.

She walked down the stairs and put on her jacket. The jacket which he had offended. She threw it away again and opened the door and went out with nothing more than her cardigan. 

She reached the banks and stopped. He had stopped the game and now he looked terribly angry. He yelled and his fists were clenched. She wondered what had happen, while she had turned her back. 

She walked closer. 
"You know that yelling is not going to bring back your father right?" 
He turned in an instant against her. His face was stunned and he was clearly taken by surprise, when he thought he was alone. But just as fast as he had shown surprise, his face got hard. 
"What the fuck are you doing here?"
"I live here. What are you doing here?"
"Now this place is also ruined for me. Thanks a lot. What do you want rich girl?"
"You to fall in the water."
"Why?"
"Because you are a dick."
"I see. Well that ain't gonna happen rich girl."
"My name is Melanie."
"And mine is Harry and so what rich girl?"
"Okay, Harry call me Melanie. Instead of rich girl."
"Why should I? You are rich and you are a girl. I see it fitting."
"But I do not."
"And stubborn too. I'll add it to the list."
"What list?"
"...And stupid with lack of humor."
"Isn't that name a little bit too long now? Wouldn't it be easier to just call me Melanie?"
He didn't say anything and she walked nearer to him.
"What are you doing?"
"Using my stupidness and stubbornness to think I can get you in the water by myself."
He laughed and she smiled and started playing with the ring she had on her finger.

"Melanie! Dinner!" They both jibbed in surprise. 
"Daddy is calling, better run for it. What are you having? Caviar and champagne with gold leaves?"
"Yep. Every night. With just a nip of truffle." She said while running towards the house.
"I don't even know what that is." 
"Maybe it is not me who are the stupid one after all!" She winked at him and ran to the door and disappeared through it.
