I saw him, slightly older than me, 18, 19? His dark fringe fell over his eyes, and his black skinny jeans had mud all over them. "You okay?"
"Yeah.. I think I'm fine," I said, shocked.
"Good," he walked over to my top, " you can't wear this, here," He handed me a towel out of his bag. "I've just been swimming by the way, I don't carry random towels around with me usually."
