Summer Love Chapter 5 "Look, I think we got off on
the wrong foot the other day." Ethan said as our
grandmothers walked in front of us on the boardwalk.
I wasn't entirely sure on why my grandmother and her best
friend had their grandchildren tag along on their fun-filled day,
but it hadn't been too bad as of now.
"How so?" I asked, short and to the point.
Ethan looked taken aback at the cold tone I had, and I actually
felt bad for a slight second.
He didn't actually do anything wrong.
"Well, I can tell you for sure that you aren't too fond
of me," he shrugged, scratching his neck.
I didn't answer, and we walked in silence for a few hundred
"Look, if I came off as a total jerk, I'm sorry,
honestly." he sincerely continued.
I bit the inside of my cheek, suddenly feeling bad for judging
him so quickly.
He did have the courage to swallow his pride and apologize,
without me pointing some he did wrong out
I felt a smiled twitch at my lips as I spoke.
"I'm sorry for giving such an attitude, also." I
finally said, and Ethan looked over to me.
He smiled himself, and I noticed that his teeth were even whiter
than the foam the waves made when they hit the shoreline.
I felt self conscious about my smile suddenly, but returned it to
"You have a really nice smile." he whispered lowly as
he moved closer to me, his forearm brushing my shoulder.
I felt the area his skin touch mine get hot, strangely.
One minute I went from thinking he was a total jerk, to noticing
how perfectly sculpted his jawline was.
It's strange how the mind of a teenager would work, even
though I was now 21.
After a few minutes of silence as we still walked behind our
grandmothers, Ethan spoke up.
"Do you wanna go over to the beach for a bit, just so we
could do something instead of walk?" he blurted, his eyes
floating over to the crowded beach.
I raised an eyebrow, looking ahead at where our grandmothers
were, about 500 yards in front.
"And do what, exactly?" I asked, confused.
What difference would it be to walk on the beach or the
boardwalk? Other than that we weren't just following our
He shrugged, "Play volleyball, go in the ocean. It's up
I felt a smirk tug at my lips.
"Not to brag, but I was the starting outside hitter all four
college years." I nudged Ethan with my elbow.
"Well, looks like we should find a pair of opponents and see
how true that is." he chuckled.
I rolled my eyes as we started our way towards the beach,
checking our grandmothers for one last moment before leaving
"Alex, Greg, let's go." Ethan said, walking up to a
few boys throwing a football on the shore.
I followed Ethan around like a lost puppy as we made our way over
to the volleyball court.
"And who might this beautiful girl be?" A tall, tanned
blonde said to me, a smug grin upon his face.
I raise an eyebrow, glancing over to Ethan as I cross my
shoulders or my chest.
"Savannah, and she's mine." he replied, taking a
step in front of me.
Mine? Where did that come from? I wasn't a piece of his
The blonde guy raised his hands up in defense and took a few
"Whoa, man, I didn't know you had that much game!"
The other guy with light brown hair said, slapping Ethan on the
I really don't know why I even agreed to come here, I have no
idea what I was doing or who I am with!
I don't really even know Ethan!
Perhaps it was because I hadn't really hund out with anybody
my age since the other day when I met Tara and all of her
"Chill out, she's my partner. Come on, let's
go." Ethan said, walking onto the now empty volleyball
I watched confused as the three boys set themselves up, and was
too distracted to notice Ethan tossing me the volleyball.
"Let's see what you've got." he smirked,
dumping the white ball in my hand.
I rolled my eyes at him, as I walked to the very back of the
court, serving it with ease over the net.
The volley went on back and forth, spike after spike, for what
felt like ten minutes.
"I got it!" I called out Ethan, going for the falling
Quickly, before I could even react, Ethan dove right where I
intended to go, and we both fell over each other, neither of us
keeping the ball up.
"Ow," I mumbled, rubbing my head while sitting up on
Ethan's laying body.
"You were right, you are pretty good." he chuckled from
"Thanks," I replied, standing up, and helping Ethan
himself get up.
