Summer Love

In the summer of 2009 Karen got a job at a day camp that she went to from 5-14 y/o. Now that she's a junior in high school, she needed the money. It's your typical summer camp; kids running and screaming, some crying. But all that disappears when she meets the boy.. The curly haired one who she's met before, but who she knows nothing about.


1. First Day

"Karen honey, time to get up."

I lay in bed so comfortable. I could see the sunshine through my shut eye lids. I let out a yawn and slowly opened my eyes. Man, is it always this bright? I rolled over and saw my dad sitting on my bed looking at me. "Hey you. You have to wake up, it's your big first day!" My eyes got wide. Oh my, I forgot today I started my first job. I didn't even want to do it in the first place but I need the money and it's better than sitting in the house all summer. "I'll be ready in a few." My dad smiled and left my room shutting the door behind him.

I got out of bed and went into the bathroom and took a quick shower. I put on some shorts and a tank. When I called the Camp Director Danielle, she told me to wear 'camp appropriate attire so we don't influence the kids,' whatever that means. I rolled my eyes at the thought and put on my black Vans. Since this is an over night camp, I grabbed my pre-packed bag and went down the hall to the kitchen.

My dad was sitting at the table reading the newspaper like every morning. I went over to the fridge and opened it to find nothing really worth making so I closed the fridge and started to eat an apple from a basket of fruit we kept on the counter. I looked at the time and realized I was running a little  late. "Bye Dad. See you in a week. I have my phone if you need me. Love you!" I gave him a kiss on the cheek and ran out the door before he could reply back.

I got in my car and started the engine. I knew exactly where I was going and knew it was going to take me exactly 21 minutes. I went to this camp from when I was 5 years old till I was in 8th grade. I grew out of it a little bit and went to a soccer camp to train for my Freshman year of high school. It paid off because I made varsity. Since I live in a small town, there aren't any summer jobs worth going too, so I gave the camp a call and they said they would hire me.

I arrived to the long dirt road that seems to be a lot bumpier than the last time I went down it. When I saw the beautiful lake appear, I smiled instantly. I had so many fun memories here. I parked my car and jumped out with my bag in hand and took a deep breath taking in the warm, fresh air. I walked through the giant field where I remember the tiring games of kick ball, that we never wanted to end.

I went up the porch steps to the main building where I saw two girls and two guys talking, they seemed to be around the same age as me. I saw that Danielle was sitting at her desk putting sneakers on. She heard me walk in and stopped what she was doing. "Karen!" She jumped up and gave me a big hug that was tighter than what I expected. She let go and put her hands on my shoulders and scanned me. "My word you're so grown up and beautiful! Of course I had no doubt in my mind that you would be." She winked while I grinned and blushed.

She finished putting her other shoe on and said "follow me, I'll show you your cabin." We left the main building and went to a cabin that I had stayed in before. "We recently made this cabin for the staff because it's a little smaller and we could use more room for the kids." I looked around a little and noticed they added and upstairs. "Go put your stuff upstairs and I'll walk with you to the dining hall." She gave me a smile and I started up and the staircase.
