Surfer Girl and Drummer Boy

"Lets play a game," I say and Calum stops playing gutiar and listens. Luke and Michael walk up from the basement. "Lets sweet talk. Lets play fight. Lets talk twenty-four seven. Lets tell each other good morning and good night every day. Lets take walks together. Lets go on dates. Lets hang out with each other's friends," I tell him. "Lets give each other nicknames. Lets talk all night long. Lets hold each other and kiss and hug," I pause,looking at the other guys's faces and turn back to Ashton. "And the first one to fall in love?" I laugh for a second,then grin. "Loses."

The door creaks open behind me,and my back remains turned to the customer. "Welcome," I hear my brother say to the customer. I continue to polish my surfboard. I hear papers ruffle. "Cool. Lemme check these out." Jake says. "Okay. I'm Ashton,by the way. Ashton Irwin." The person says. "Nice to meet you,I'm Jake Callagan," A pause. "So,you seem like a good guy for the job. You got it." "Thanks." "I'm gonna put these in my office,I'll be right back." Jake says. Footsteps go through the hallway,past the beads in the doorway. "I'm Ashton," The guy says after a second. I set down the rag and turn to face him. "What's your name?" I don't say anything and return to my surfboard. "Cool board," Ashton tells me. I lift my head up. "I have one sorta like that at my place." I face him again. "Congratulations." I reply and Jake walks back out. "Why are you so damn stubborn all the time?" Jake jokes. I don't laugh. Jake scratches the back out his neck,nervously laughing. I grab my board and go outside. "Don't you dare go into the water! You're not done working!" I ignore his yell after me. I approach the water. I stop at the edge. I hear the door creak again. "So,your name is Emily?" Ashton's voice comes from a few feet away. I turn around. "Yeah,so?" I answer. "Well,Jake doesn't want you out here." He tells me. "I know." "Okay." 

I pick up my water bottle and take a sip,after setting down my tennis racket. My friend,Gabby,sits beside me. I put my fingers through my strawberry blonde hair in a ponytail. "Yesterday,at the surf shop,my brother hired this guy," I say. She nods. "He wouldn't leave me alone and he had this giggle. And each time he laughed,it was different," We laugh. "I'm serious,though." I take another sip of my water. My brother's car rattles into the parking lot of the tennis court. "Hey,don't forget about the party tonight!" Gabby says as I climb into the car. I nod and give her a thumbs up. "Party?" Jake asks. "Yeah." I reply,putting on my seat belt after closing the door. "No party for you."  He says. I look at him. "I'm 19. Nineteen! Jake,I'll be fine." He sighs. "I just...I don't want...." His voice trails off. I stare out the window. "Just...just be back by-" "No!" I interrupt. I look at him as we get out of the car and I take off my tennis shoes to go in the sand. "Be back by 9." Jake tells me. "Jake! I'm nineteen years old! I can come here whenever I want!" I say and he sighs. "Whatever. Just get ready for work." He mumbles. "Fine. Fine." I reply as he walks into the surf shop and I stare into the empty ocean in front of me. I go inside and see Ashton sitting behind the counter. "Hey." He waves. "Hi." I mumble and go into my bedroom,my bag slung over my shoulder. I close the door and set down my bag and shoes. I change into my wetsuit and let down my hair. I go back to where Ashton is at. I sit on a stool and sigh. "What'sup?" "Nothing you should be concerned about." I tell him. He looks down the hallway behind him and I do too. Jake is typing away,his back to the doorway. Ashton smiles after looking back at me. 

"Fuck you guys!" Jake yells out into the darkness and Ashton and I giggle. We run out of the water. I put the boards on the floor of the shed to dry and we head back into the shop. I wrap a towel around me and my smile fades once I catch sight of the clock. Jake comes out with three mugs,handing one to Ashton. I stand up from the chair. "Dammit!" I say. "What?" Jake asks,setting down a mug on the table in front of me. "The party,Jake! I said I was gonna be there! Now it's 11:30. I was supposed to be there at 7:00!" I remind him. Ashton frowns. "Sorry." He says. "It's alright. I'll just make something up when I get there." I reply. "With wet hair?" Jake asks. "It doesn't matter." I tell him. "Better get going." My brother says before taking a sip of his drink and Ashton giggles. "I plan on doing just that," I search for Jake's keys. "Where are your keys,Jake?" I ask. "Oh,no,no,no. You are not taking my car." He replies. I shake my head. "I guess I'll walk." "I'll take you." Ashton tells me.
