"I'm more the sunbathing type."

Tess nearly scoffed and cocked an eyebrow at him. Who in their right mind would rather sunbathe than swim? Not herself, that was for certain.

The girl started stripping down to her bathing suit anyway. She honestly didn't care whether or not Newt's friend (she racked her brain for his name, which she swore rhymed with the French word for "ocean" - ah yes, Jere!), whether or not Jere came or not, because she was swimming no matter what.

"But if ya remember my name, I'll come and keep ya company."

Tess sprinted into the water before turning to the boy, "Okay, JERE, you should really at least come into the water. It's so nice!" If he decided not to, then whatever. It was his loss.

one afternoon
the middle of summer
lake alexandrina


Tess was happy for the first time in ages. She was back in "Australia!" Sure, Victoria wasn't Queensland, but it was better than nothing.

The girl had to decided to visit all the bodies of water, and Lake Alexandrina was first on her list. A towel slung over her shoulder, she advanced blithely, itching to get in the water, until she nearly tripped over something. Someone. Hey!

Wasn't that...? "Newt's friend!" Jonathan or Jeremy or something like that. He'd visited the Mariner household once to return underpants, of all things.

She laid her towel down a few feet away from his, surreptitiously keeping her distance. There had been things she heard about the boy that she found troubling... But if her brother trusted him, then shouldn't she?

Nudging a bit closer, Tess glanced over at him. "Ummm...want to swim?"
