My Other Half - Chapter 71
(AN: WE ARE SO SORRY! IT'S BEEN SO LONG! Nvbrox16 here! I was in Italy and it took me a while to kind of get back on track and I've been really busy and stuff so yeah.)
"Come on," I whine again.
"Just hold on!" Demi snaps, holding her arms around herself as the wave pushes by her ankles.
"You told me you weren't afraid of that movie," I remind her.
"Y-yeah, and I'm not," she insists.
"It's not real. Just hurry up," I squint at her and she takes another few steps into the water. I groan and roll my eyes. "If you don't bring your butt over here right now, I'm going to leave you and swim with everyone else,"
"No! Don't leave, please," Demi shouts.
"Seriously, woman, just get in the water," I tell her. She walks deeper, pausing to let a wave crash around her thighs and she finally reaches me.
"What's that?!" Demi points.
"Seaweed?" I guess. "Don't be so paranoid. Come on,"
Demi follows me deeper over to Kevin, Dani, Sel, Nick, and Miley who are already splashing around and diving through waves.
"Took you long enough," Miley snorts.
"Someone thought it would be a good idea to watch Jaws last night," I look over at Demi and she shoves me. "Real smart, you baby," I scoop her up over my shoulder.
"Joe! Let me go," Demi yells.
"Are you gonna play nice or do I need to throw you in the water?" I ask sternly, but with a smile.
"No, no, I'll be nice, I promise," she pleads. I laugh and set her back down and she steadies herself.
"Seriously, Dem, Jaws is just a movie. No big deal," Miley laughs. Demi sticks her tongue out at Miley and she turns to me. I lightly splash her and she just frowns.
"What? Not gonna splash me back?" I joke and she shakes her head. I step a little closer to Demi, looking over her shoulder at Kevin and Dani in their own world and Miley, Nick, and Sel talking together.
"You're eye looks terrible," Demi points out, smirking a little.
"Gee thanks," I mutter, rolling my eyes.
"Sorry," she shrugs.
"Demi," Joe whines, shaking my shoulder.
"I want to put more sunscreen on you. You're gonna get burned," Joe insists.
"Whatever," I mumble. I feel the cold lotion on my back then Joe's rough hand rubbing it in.
"So I was talking to Kevin and Dani and they had this really fun idea," he says.
"They think it'd be fun to drive north a bit and go camping," Joe tells me. I pick my head up, a big smile growing on my face.
"That sounds like the funnest thing ever!" I say excitedly. Miley looks over at me through her sunglasses.
"What does?" she wonders, propping herself up on her elbows.
"Camping!" I shout.
"Really?! Like tents and campfires and trees?" Miley wonders. I nod.
"That sounds so fun," Selena chimes in.
"I can't wait," I smile.
"Great, great. You're excited, now will you hold still?" Joe asks me. I laugh lightly and lay back down on my beach towel.
