Meg stepped onto the beach and removed her sandals. She scrunched her toes and let them sink into the warm, grainy sand. Meg held the rolled blanket under her arm as she made her way to the shoreline. Waves rolled in and out marking the shore with lines of foam. Meg inhaled the salty air and smiled as the almost warm water washed over her toes. She resisted the urge to wade into the bay and would dive in without question if she’d worn her bathing suit. Meg made her way to a dry patch of sand away from shoreline and spread the blanket. She sat down, stretched her legs and leaned back on her hands. It was a light beach crowd which made it more peaceful than usual. She’d have space to think. Meg pulled her water bottle from her bag and tipped it back for a drink. In her peripheral vision, she saw someone sitting about a hundred feet to her left. She turned, then smiled. Meg picked up her blanket and trudged over.
“Hey, Brandon, taking advantage of the weather?” Brandon jerked his head up from his phone. His eyes widened in surprise.
“Meg, Hey what are you doing here?” Brandon’s voice squeaked.
“The same as you. I wanted to get in some beach time. It’s a gorgeous day.” Brandon put his phone away and peeked around Meg toward the seawall. She followed his gaze, then down beside his blanket. A set of women’s sandals sat beside his flip-flops. Her chest tensed and she shifted her eyes to wipe them. So, he’s not alone. It’s probably where’s his attention has been lately. Meg pushed her shoulders back. No, she wasn’t going to make any assumptions. Besides, they weren’t a couple anymore and he wasn’t her problem.
“Are you here with someone?”
“Well, yeah, but you broke up with me, remember?” His voice was accusing.
“I was just asking. Anyone I know?” Brandon shrugged. His shoulders hung near his ears from obvious tension.
“Relax, I’m not here to cause trouble.” His eyes darted between Meg and something behind her. She turned again to see a young woman approaching. Brandon pushed himself up and brushed the sand from his hands.
“Ashley, this is Megan. Megan, this is Ashley.”
Megan’s eyes grew wide. It was the purple flower sweater girl.
