If you want to learn to swim, you have to throw yourself in the water.
-Bruce Lee

Chapter 8: Swimming

"No." I say for the third time standing by the edge of the pool staring at the clear blue water in front of me.

"Come on, I'll catch you." Cole says as he held his arms open in front of himself gesturing for me to jump in.

I shook my head again as he sighed. We were at my house, in the backyard by my pool. I was in shorts and a tank top standing a safe distance from the edge so I wouldn't be pulled in.

Cole and Dean were in the pool, both trying to get me to jump in. It was only 1:10 so you could imagine how early they showed up.

~*~*~* 20 minutes ago ~*~*~*

Knock knock knock. "Anyone home?!" I heard a yell and pounding from my front door.

"Auksmxhxjs." I mumbled as I turned on my side, ignoring whoever it was. If I wasn't up yet it was too early.

"Hello!" I heard another yell followed by more pounding on the door.

"Leaf ma avone!" I mumble/yell into my pillow as I pulled my covers over my head trying to block the noise out.

"Anne. Your friends are here." My brother told me in annoyance as he pushed my door wide open.

I suddenly sit up. "Oh my gosh. Reece! Your here!" I laughed, shaking my head. "I had the craziest dream. I dreamt that I left you at Cher's house last night. Weird right?" I grinned at him.

He glared at me before yelling, "It wasn't a dream! Mom had to pick  me up at 11. She said you fell back asleep!" He glared at me one last time before slamming my door behind him in annoyance.

"Sorry!" I called after him.

I forgot that after my mom had asked me where he was I went to bed and pretended to be asleep, then actually fell asleep. I was still in yesterday's clothing. Yuck.

I stretched and got out of bed.

I need to change.

Knock! Knock!

I groaned. "Reece! Who's at the door?!" I heard him shuffle around down stairs and heard the door open. I listened closely as they started to talk.

"He says his name is Cole! He has a Dean with him! And Katie's here too!" He yelled from down stairs.

Why were they here?

"Just let them in! I'll be down in a bit!" I called back walking into my closet.

I quickly changed into a pair of shorts and a tank top. It was pretty warm out.

I combed through my hair and slipped into some sandals. I walked down stairs and saw the boys standing around awkwardly together, by the door.

"What are you guys doing here? It's like 5 in the morning." I tell them as I glanced into the living room to see Reece and Katie sitting together, watching the TV.

Dean rolls his eyes. "It's 12."

My eyes widened. "Seriously?" Cole nodded and showed me his phone. It actually was already noon. Wow.

"Well what are you guys doing here?" I restate the question folding my arms over my chest.

"Katie wanted to see you. Plus were going to teach you how to swim, so when we throw you in the pool again you won't die." Cole answered as I rolled my eyes.
