Mika sat on her towel in the sand and stared out at the rolling ocean. She kept glancing at her watch, waiting…and waiting. Patience wasn’t her strong suit, but she knew that she would have to be. The time was 4:45 PM…he should have come by now. Where was he? Mika grunted and pulled her window blinds glasses over her eyes and lay back on the towel, closing her eyes. The suns heat fell over and washed her skin, her bikini absorbing heat as well into its fabric. She placed her hands over her naval and sighed.
“Hey!” Mika’s head bolted up to see Cliff running down to meet her. He was wearing red, confederate flag swim trunks. He was shirtless and his feet were bare. He had a great big smile on his face and Mika found herself smiling too.
“Well there you are, you big slow poke.” Mika laughed. Suddenly, without warning, Cliff ran over and threw himself into the sand laughing hysterically, taking Mika by surprise.
