Ohmy. This dude is an amazing person! He stuck with me almost since the beginning of this story. And I know he reads every chapter I write because I always see his votes and it just makes me so happy to know that he's out there reading my story and liking it. And I never really took the time to thank him in my stories so I wanna do that now because it really means so much to me. His reads and his votes.
I didn't speak to Caleb until we got back to our site.
Which took a while since I had stormed off, in front of Caleb but didn't know where I was going so I pretended to be too busy drooling at the shells and the water while Caleb passed me and lead the way.
He didn't try to talk to me either.
He was obviously mad as well.
As soon as we got to our site, I snapped.
"What's wrong with you? Huh? Why'd you go and punch him? I was perfectly capable of doing that myself! It's obvious isn't it! I can look after myself!" I snapped.
He just looked at me, "Well you didn't do anything so I did. I know you can look after yourself but you can't depend on yourself for forever! There are people out there stronger than you, yes that is true even as hard to believe as that sounds, and there will be times when you can't defend for yourself and someone has to step in and lend a hand!" He cried.
I rolled my eyes, "Obviously, that was not the time! I know I'm not the strongest person in the world! That's obvious! Maybe for girls I am, but definitely not the boys! But I think you and I can both see that that "George" dude there was a weakling and couldn't pull a move on me even if he tried!"
Caleb snorted, "That's for sure"
"Exactly! I don't need you to step in and lend me a hand" I mocked him, "I've always fight for myself and the people I love and always will! I don't need your help! Especially when it comes to those kind of situation. One quick glance at that ass, I knew that he was a wimp. You made me look weak, stupid and scared over there! Which I'M NOT!" I screamed.
He scoffed, "So what? God, I didn't know you cared about your reputation so much. And it isn't even a good one! The badass smartass. Psh. What kind of title is that?" He teased.
I fumed, if he wasn't my friend I would've broke his jaw, " THat's my title. It doesn't have to be special or nice. But when I recieve a title, I will be honorable and loyal and respect and care for it. And when someone tries to ruin it. I will hurt them" I glared up at him.
He rolled his eyes and grinned, "Loyal and honorable eh?" He ruffled my hair.
"Caleb" I hissed threateningly. "You're pushing it"
Oh he was pushing it alright.
Thankfully, Caleb got the message and backed off or I really would've hurt him.
I wasn't scared to throw a punch. Even if it were my friends.
"Alright. Alright. I'm sorry" He said.
"You bet your sorry ass you are" I shot back.
I rummaged through my bag in search for my phone.
I found it and quickly turned it on.
It was already 4:53pm.
"Do you wanna get going?" Caleb asked.
"Yeah. Sure" I nodded.
"Alright. I'll pack up" Caleb said.
He pulled the umbrella out of the sand and rolled it up.
"I'll take this back" I said.
"Sure. Thanks" Caleb said as he started to fold up the blanket.
I picked up the giant umbrella and started hulling it towards the Umbrella Shack that wasn't too far away.
"Hi" I smiled at the boy that was standing behind the counter.
He was probably in college.
"Hey. You returning that?" He pointed at the umbrella in my arms.
I nodded, "Yeah. Where should I put it?"
"Just over there" He pointed at the cluster of giant umbrella beside the shack.
"Alright. Thanks" I smiled at him and walked over to the cluster.
I pushed the umbrella into the sand so it was standing strong and straight and brushed off the sand in my hands.
I turned around and saw the same boy standing in front of me.
"Oh. Hi" I waved.
"I'm sorry. I don't think I got your name" He smirked.
"I'm sorry. I don't think I was meant to tell you" I shot back with a smirk.
"Well. I'm Brad" He said and stuck out his hand.
