We knew it was going to be a hot day. The previous day was hot.
We woke up lying on top of the duvet, both sweating, the sun fighting the curtains, and winning, compelling our eyes to open.
It woke him up just enough to turn over.
It woke my just enough to remind my sleepy head of the plan we made before sleep took us both.
I pushed at his back, "Come on, get up"
"hum" was his reply.
"Come on, get up, before it hot" It was hot already, we both knew that.
He needed reminding of the plan. Through a yawn I told him.
"We don't have to go."
But I was awake now. Too awake to just lie there.
I got my butt out of bed, which forced him to do the same.
In the car the temperature display kept creeping up, "maybe this isn't such a good idea." I started to question my actions, sleep still in my eyes and lingering in my stretches.
The radio told us to say inside, it was going to be the hottest day. "Lets just get breakfast, go back home." I stared to wonder what we would be doing if I had forgot about the sleep filled plan made in the cooling night air. We would be lulling in our bed, he would be holding me loosely, kissing on my neck, my hands drawing patterns on his skin. We would just about to start our morning routine, the one we had found our selves falling into on days we had nothing early planned.
"We are half way there now, We anit going back." He said. His eyes questioning me, are you serious. I'm always changing my mind, this time I was just bit too late.
We walked from the parked car, the sun shining down, not a cloud in the sky.
Soon the path gave way, I stopped to take my shoes off, putting my feet deep under the warming sand. We found a little shade by way off sand dooms, and set up a temporary camp; we both know we wasn't staying long, that was the plan.
We stripped, we ran, the sun beating down, sweat beading on our skin, a sea breeze caressing our bodies, the sand shifting consistencies.
The water brought a gasp to my mouth, lapping over my feet, as I waded in up to my thighs. He was doing the same, the shock on his face made me laugh. He splashed me with water in a childish way as the waves come up to my breast.
Together we embraced the cooling sea water, on the hottest day of the year.
