Chapter Six (Part 3)



The guy nudged Drew and then both of them looked at us, grinning. Okay, now they’d officially seen us.

“Can we practice our flirting skills when we get back to the cabin?” I asked, trying to prevent myself from hyperventilating.

“I wish we could practice them right now,” she replied, sounding just as desperate. “I look okay, right?”

“For Drew, you always look great.”

They were walking towards us and Nancy and I couldn’t say much more to each other as we got to our feet. The grass tickled me but I wasn’t sure if that was the reason for all the tingles that started to spread through.

“Hey! What are you two doing here?” Drew laughed, giving me a hug and then Nancy one as well who looked like she might faint.

“To have fun,” I said.

“You remember Jensen, right?” Drew beckoned over to his friend who stepped forward, giving me a smile that made me want to melt into a puddle on the ground.

“Of course.” I smiled back. How could I forget?

Drew’s eyes were fixed on Nancy who came to my side, slipping her hand into mine.

“How come you didn’t tell us you’d be coming here for the summer?” She asked.

“Guess it must have slipped my mind,” Drew shrugged. “Well, anyways, now that we’re all here, I guess we’re going to be spending loads of time together.”

Jensen was looking at me, that beautiful smile lingering on his lips. My toes curled a little and I tried to sound cool and not at all close to fainting as I muttered, “Sounds like a great plan to me.”


“Camp seriously rocks,” Nancy chirped. “I didn’t think it would be this awesome but seriously is. And I seriously did not expect Drew to show up.”

“Yeah, I get it Ms. Serious,” I joked. “Besides, you’re only enjoying it so much because the love of your life showed up.”

“So did yours,” she retorted. I picked at the morsels of food left on my plate, trying not to blow up in embarrassment. “I saw that moment you two shared during the campfire.”

“He gave me his marshmallow, how is that in any way romantic?”

“Better than him not giving you anything.”

I smiled, and looked over at the other table where the boys were seated, having their lunch. Jensen and Drew were talking about something and then started laughing. I wished I could be in Drew’s place, sitting right next to Jensen to hear what he was saying and laugh with him. And maybe feed him berries or something. 

The End
