  •                                              A Mid Day Swim
  • It was dark already around nine in South Dakota, the desert like state is mildly cold. In a Super 8 hotel there lay Addison and in the two bed hotel room was her mom and her boyfriend John sharing one bed, and in the other was Abby and Addison together, the beds weren’t queen sized or full sized. They were both small and right above their beds were black and white pictures of nature. As Addison lay awake she thought to herself, how could I be so stupid, following my mom’s boyfriend in the creek. Oh, yeah, Addison realized, I said “I bet you” and “fine.” As Addison slowly closed her eyes she had dreamt of what happened at noon.
  • It was noon out the temperature was 90 degrees out and the humidity felt like an oven on preheat. As the car parked in the parking lot there was a nice picnic area with a hotel by it and almost like a ditch with water in it, a creek about three yards of width. There was a picnic table and two chairs connected by a table. Addison and Abby  got out of the car with a drowsy look to it, the sisters immediately went to sit in the chairs and in the shade of a tree that was not part of the woods or anything, just lonely. Her mom started to prep the lunches, after a few minutes later the sisters put together their sandwiches. Both of them made two sandwiches, and after five minutes later their sandwiches were all done. As Abby and Addison waited for their mom and John to finish up they both took thirty seconds of talking breaks and five second chews.
  • All of a sudden John got up suddenly and started walking toward the creek “Where are you going?” asked Addison’s mom. “There is something edible in there.” answered John. “Well, okay.” her mom said. All of sudden Addison had an idea that if she could make it to the creek it would feel better than sitting in the shade of a tree, it depends if the creek was warm or cold. Hopefully cold thought Addison to herself.
  • As Addison got out of her chair Abby asked,”And where are you going, Addison.” “Um,” Addison had to think a little. “To the creek.” “You, aren’t going to make it,”said Abby sarcastically. “Well, I bet you, I can make it,” Addison said in a doubtful tone, as Addison put her right foot in, I can do this Addison thought. Kla-bunk the water was so cool actually cooler than expected, Abby said something, but Addison just ignored. “I, can do this,” Addison said. “Fine, then do it.” Abby whispered a little loudly. Addison started at Abby surprised when Addison looked down at the bottom of the creek she saw gold and silver colored like pebbles. Addison had to figure out what was she going to do, Abby was more head strong than Addison, but Addison was nothing but a smart mouth not like Abby.
  • Addison stared at the creek did she really take this too far. “Do it,” shouted Abby. “Fine, I will.” Addison yelled back.Addison put her foot in Cla-Clunk, Addison thought to herself. I don’t want to be the wrong the sister I want to be the right one. John was still in the creek and was picking at the green patch, Addison took a deep breath and put her left foot out, five seconds later Kla-Splaaaaassssssssshh. Addison fell in the creek it felt cool, but Addison was all wet instead of a peaceful lunch time everyone stared over  at Addison. It felt gray everyone even her mom and John started to laugh, her face looked like “great I’m gonna get in trouble” she didn’t, but she had to wear her dirty clothes for the rest of the day. Still whenever Addison fell in the creek her sister Abby made up mean jokes about falling in the creek.
