Joint venture with @heart-attack-harry
I’d fully expected to sleep until at least noon, but I managed to feel wide awake at 9AM and by 11, I was already sitting on a lounge chair in Niall’s backyard, my cheap sunglasses doing a poor job of shading the blinding sun from my eyes.
“Could it be any hotter?” I whined as I fanned myself with my hand.
“Why dontcha jump in the pool?” Niall suggested as he flipped a burger on the grill.
“Not yet,” I shook my head. “I wanna eat first.”
I was also a little self-conscious about stripping down to my bathing suit in front of Niall, but I wasn’t about to say that.
“Well, you’re in luck, ‘cause these are ready.”
“Yes!” I jumped up from my seat.
Niall grinned at me as I took a plate from him and prepared my burger. As I sat down at the patio table, he pulled two beers out of a cooler and handed me one before sitting next to me.
“Delicious, Blondie,” I told him with a mouth full of burger.
