Hunter & Skylar by Bella Matthews
With my mind made up, I swim back to shore and find Skye awake, digging her toes into the sand as the waves lap at her feet. Her creamy skin is a stark contrast to her bright-blue bikini that matches the ocean. Her strawberry-blonde hair catches in the light breeze blowing behind her, and she takes my breath away.
And I can’t miss the way her eyes light up when she sees me.
“Hey, you’re awake.” I shake my wet hair out like a dog and watch her squirm as droplets dance over her warm skin, then hold my hand out for her. “Wanna come in with me? The water’s perfect today.”
Skye plants her hands on her hips, looking every bit the cheerleader she once was. “You know I can’t swim, Hunt.”
I lift her off her feet and carry her a few feet out.
“Oh my god. Put me down, Hunter. What the hell?” Her small fists pound against my shoulders, and from this position, my face is practically nestled between her perfectly plumped boobs being held by a thick blue tie around her neck and another behind her back.
“Okay, doc.” I lower her feet into the water but don’t let go. “I’ll put you down.”
She clings to my neck as soon as her feet touch the water. “No, wait . . . Don’t. Don’t put me down.” She wraps her legs around my waist as I move further into the ocean, refusing to loosen her grip even though I’m only waist-deep. I keep going until we’re deeper. Until the water covers both of us up to my chest, and I have to jump over a wave, getting Skye’s face wet. Making sure we’re deep enough so she can’t let go.
I keep one arm around her waist and push her wet hair away from her face.
“I’m going to kill you, Hunter,” she tells me with laughter lacing her voice.
“I’m going to kiss you, Skylar.”
She gasps, then her face transforms into a seductive smile as she runs a thumb along my cheek. “What are you waiting for?”
That. Permission. That was all I was waiting for.
