I opened my eyes. Alex had jumped to his feet. Alex pulled his T-shirt off in one swift move. My eyes flitted to the shadowed hollows where his hips disappeared into his shorts, causing a flutter in parts of my body that up until three weeks ago had been flutter-dormant. I reassessed the swimming option. I could definitely do swimming. He shrugged off his shorts, but before I could catch an eyeful of anything, he was off, jogging towards the water.
I paused for a nanosecond, weighing up my embarrassment at stripping naked over my desire to follow him. The water was warm and flat as a bath. I could see Alex in the distance, his skin gleaming in the now inky moonlight. When I got close to him, his hand snaked under the water, wrapped round my waist and pulled me towards him. And then he kissed me and I prayed silently and fervently that he took my shudder to be the effect of the water. Alex had said there were always chinks.
He swam two long strokes away from me. I trod water and stayed where I was, feeling confused, glad that the night was dark enough to hide my expression. I groaned and rolled my eyes. When was he going to understand that I was happy for him to protect every other part of me, just not my honour?
