“Y/N, we’re going to the beach! Once you’re ready meet us!” My boyfriend Jack called from the downstairs of our beach house we rented as a group for the week in Florida.
“I’ll be down soon!” I called back. I was so pumped to be in Florida and at the beach. Being from Omaha all I had experienced was lakes and rivers, nothing like the ocean. I was so excited to finally feel the salty ocean water on my skin.
As I put on my tiny black bikini that I rarely ever wore, a rush of excitement came over me. I put my hair into a messy bun and slid on flip flops. Luckily, the beach house we rented was only feet away from the beach.
Once I made it outside onto the beach, I immediately spotted my boyfriend Jack and his friends Jack J, Nate, Sammy, and Swazz.
“Hey guys!” I said as I approached the guys who were already drinking beers and trying to set up a game of Kan Jam.
Once seeing me, Sammy lifted up his shades clearly checking me out.
“Damn Y/N, who knew you had such a banging body.” Nate said, as Jack J whistled.
“Ha, ha very funny guys.” I said shaking my head, grabbing a beer from the cooler.
“Not cool guys.” Jack said as he wrapped his arms around me.
“You’re lucky man. If I knew that’s what Y/N was hiding under her clothes, I’d be in your position.” Swazz joked.
“Well you’re not and never will be.” Jack spat.
I could tell he was getting pissed at his friends. I knew they were joking around, but Jack took everything so seriously. He was legitimately freaked out I would leave him for his friends, but in reality that would never happen.
“Hey, I’m gonna go to the water!” I told Jack eagerly as I got out of his grip.
“I’ll come with!” Jack suggested.
“It’s fine, really.” I told him with a smile.
As I walked down to the water. I heard Jack yell at the other guys. “Stop staring at her, please!”
I smirked to myself as I kept walking.
Then I heard Sammy yell. “Do that Baywatch run!”
“When you get out of the water you better be soaking wet.” Jack J called.
“Enough!” Jack yelled as he came running after me.
I felt his hand grab me just as my foot reached the ocean, the cold water cooling me down instantly.
“Jack, come on. They’re trying to get a rise out of you.” I told him as we went into the ocean together.
“I don’t like it, you’re my girlfriend. I don’t like the way they check you out and make comments.” Jack said as he held me close.
“Jack, you get way too protective. I appreciate your concern but you don’t need to go with me everywhere I go from now on. They are your friends, it’s not like one of them is gonna do anything. They just like joking around, you need to not be so serious. I’m your girlfriend, I’m with you, I like you.” I told him as I poked his chest.
“I know, I know but I like protecting you. You’re mine, you deserve to be protected and kept safe.” Jack said.
I laughed. “Jack, I don’t need protection from your friends. They’re good guys, you need to relax. Enjoy this beautiful day. I know I am.” I told him as I laid on my back floating in the Atlantic for the first time.
“You’re right, I need to focus on the positive things.” Jack said.
