Episode 2
The roars faded into the jungle. I let my shoulders drop and sighed in relief. What the heck
were those scary sounds anyway? Letting out another sigh, I could only explain the upheaval as
monkeys fighting over territory. Nothing else made any sense. I pushed the thought to the back
of my mind and focused on the waves lapping at my ankles. I wriggled my toes in the glittering
sand, enjoying the soft caress against my skin, but the roars kept nagging at me.
Jack sat on a large piece of twisted white driftwood, his messy brown hair blowing in the
wind. I caught him staring at me and smiled. He looked away, a red blush creeping up his neck
and face. What’s that all about? Does he have something to say? I suspected he might have a
crush on me, the way I had one on Mike.
Mike's voice suddenly pierced through my thoughts. “Hey, Casey.”
“Yeah?” I said.
“I need to cool off for a minute.” Wiping the sweat off his brow, he squinted at the suns on
the horizon, the noise from before seemingly forgotten. He whipped off his shirt and dashed into
the surf; scooping up a handful of water and pouring it over his head. Sparkling droplets rolled
down his striking face, like multi-colored gems.
