When he takes her under his wing she begins to fall in love with him. But soon, secrets unravel that could jeopardize there entire relationship.


7. Floating

I walked out back and sat on a brown lawn chair waiting for Harry to come out. I start fiddling with the strings on my suit and hear harry come out.

He had on a black swim suit with blue and green stripes.


"well don't you look nice." he said running his eyes over my body, pausing a little to long on my chest. I cross my arms over my chest and stand up. 


"So are we swimming or what?" i ask


"Lets jump off the high dive!" he says excitedly


"Oh no no no no." i stutter. i have a fright of heights


"Pleaaase," he whines, "for meeee."  he puts on his puppy dog face and i cant resist.


"Fine," i snap, "but if i do this we race." i say smiling.


He walks over the high dive and starts up the ladder. I hesitate but then i follow behind. i get to the top of the ladder and look down. L feel like im going to be sick.


"Okay, on three." he says grabbing me hand


"One.."  I squeeze his hand


"Two..." Deep breath....


"Three!" I Squeeze my eyes shut, take a deep breath, and we both step forward. It feels like forever until we hit the water with a smack. The force from the fall brings me all the way to the bottom. I look around the pool. its pretty and peaceful. I look down and see the had starfish and fish cemented in the bottom. That's so cool! I feel a punding in my head and my lungs start to panic as i realize i forgot i needted to breathe. I start swimming up to the top in a hurry. I finally swim up the 19 feet from the bottom and gasp for breath.


"Forgot to breathe?" Harry chuckles


I splash him and he splashes me back. we end up having a splash wear and i dunk him under and sprint for the edge. I manage to get up as soon as he reaches for my ankle, barely missing me.

"Ah damn you." he says grinning swimming to the edge of the pool. i Lay on my stomach my forhead pressed against his. He leans in to kiss me and i turn my head, he kisses my cheek. 


"Now how about that race." i say laughing


"Prepare to lose." he says getting out.


"Oh definitely." i say sarcasticly as we line up on the side of the pool.


"Loser makes lunch." he said grinning


"Deal." i said knowing i'm gonna win.


"Okay one...two...three...Go"


I dive into the water, my body perfectly straight and i dolphin kick in a streamline position. i come up to breathe and kick my feet hard and with freestyle arms. i reach far in front of my head scooping the water, bringing it by my side and push it behind me. I propel through the water leaving Harry far behind. i touch the wall finishing my race. I sit up on the wall waiting for harry to finish. he touches the wall breathing heavily as i breathe normal, barley braking a sweat.


"Holy shit Sophie!" he says


"Swim team for five years." i say laughing


"Nine year old state champ."


He stares at me his mouth open.


"Cheater!" he says grinning


"You never asked!" i laugh as he frowns


"Better go make lunch." i said with a wink. He huffs and gets out throwing me a towel and wrapping on around his waist.


We go inside and prepare lunch.
