The California sun is scorching and every inch of your exposed skin, although covered in sunblock, feels as if it’s on fire. You want nothing more than for the sun to set and bathe the spacious backyard in a cooler, more tolerable light but you know that there is still a good bit of life left in the day. And although you’ve been sitting there for hours, the heat suffocating and the sun scorching, you’re thankful for the sight before you.
You’ve spent the better part of the day, since your far too early wake up call, sitting by the pool watching your friends enjoy themselves. You’ve taken part in a few games of chicken and even helped the boys play a prank on Yugyeom but now, after hours of chlorine and laughter, you’re sitting beside the pool watching the festivities.
It’s so rare that everyone, new friends and old, gets together to enjoy themselves. Everyone is so busy with work and life that it’s almost unbelievable that you’ve managed to gather in one place at one time. But as you watch your friends reform to play a new round of chicken, you’re glad that the impossible seems to be happening.
