belly flops

Post by Milocross on 6/1/2014, 12:50 pm

Dianes head poked out of the water, looking around to make sure no one was watching her. It would be embarrassing if anyone saw her pretending to be a crocodile, after all. Holding her breath, she slid down slowly until only her eyes and forehead were visible. Using her arms, she clamped down on the water like a crocodile would, pretending there had been prey caught between her 'fangs'. She knew what she was doing was stupid, but didn't everyone do stupid things while they were alone? The only thing she regretted was that her hair dye was slowly fading out in the lake, but at least it would turn some fish into fabulous red/brown queens.

taleis hums as he skips over to the lake. it's finally warming up, and it's great. taleis is so not a winter person, and now he can finally swim. like, hell yes.

he's wearing these tiny yellow swim trunks that one of his aunts fashion designer friends said were "so in right now, you need to get them". they are pretty cool. besides, who doesn't like yellow?

Diane didn't notice that someone had been coming towards the lake, so she continued to be a vicious crocodile. She leaped up in the air, holding onto her green bikini so she wouldn't lose it. Growling, she was confused as to how she got so high, but when she noticed that a boy was near, her gracefulness in the air was no more and she did a belly flop in the water.

taleis is about to jump in when he notices a girl doing....well, taleis really doesn't have any idea what she was doing. all he knows is she ended up belly flopping, and there is no way that felt pleasant.

"er," he says. blinking at her. "are you alright? That looked painful. and it sounded painful."

Diane plunged deep into the water, loosing her breath. She struggled her way back up to the surface and began to breathe heavily, her cheeks glowing red. She looked at a boy wearing.... Tiny yellow swim trunks. It took a lot of effort to maintain eye contact, but she managed to pull through. "Uhm..." she stuttered. She pushed her hair back and smiled, still breathing slightly heavier than usual. "I'm fine!"

ooc its ok lmbo

taleis continues to blink at the girl, head cocked to the side. he's not quite sure he believes her, because, well. taleis has belly flopped before, and belly flops can be painful, and that one most definitely sounded painful. but whatever, he's not her mom or anything, he's not going to berate her.

he walks over to the edge of the water and sits down, dangling his feet in. "well, that's good," he says, flashing her a smile. "i'm taleis. what were you doing earlier? it looked fun."

Dianes face turned bright red, and she began to rub the back of her neck while quietly giggling nervously, but at least her mind was taken off what he was wearing. "Nice to meet you Taleis, I'm Diane..." She usually wouldn't just flat out say that she was pretending to be a crocodile, but how harshly would a boy in tiny yellow swim trunks judge her for doing so? "Well... I was kind of pretending to be... a crocodile."

Something else was distracting her now, this kid was hot. Almost as hot as Apollo, maybe. She knew that he'd probably never go for her, and she probably wouldn't go for him either. He was a good piece of eye candy, but she had a taste for other people, which included mostly girls.

ahue.


ooc im just gonna leave this here for future reference #9966ff

"that sounds fun," taleis says honestly, still smiling widely at diane. "i'd make a really bad crocodile, though," he continues, starting to frown a little. "i'd feel bad about eating the fish and i'd probably try to like off of, like, kelp or something like that."

taleis kicks his legs back and forth a bit in the water, and he feels his leg brush up against something gross and slimy. eurgh. there are reasons taleis likes beaches more than lakes. sure, there's seaweed in the ocean, but lakes are just...gross. really gross. but the ocean takes longer to warm up than a lake, and taleis wants to go swimming, and he'd really rather not swimming in, like, freezing water. taleis knows what fun is, and it is most definitely not that.

The warm water was soothing to Diane, and calmed her down in most social situations. Sometimes she thought she would be better suited as a daughter of Poseidon or Triton rather than Apollo, but she loved her father anyways. "The waters really nice, except for all the weird stuff brushing up against your legs, of course." Diane used to freak out whenever her leg brushed up against a plant or a small fish in the water, but she had gotten so used to it that she would probably brush off a shark brushing against her.

taleis wrinkles his nose at that. "i've never been all for weird things brushing up against my leg," he says thoughtfully. "i think i'm a bit more of a pool person."

he perks up a bit at that thought, because, oooo, a pool. "is there a pool here? i know pools aren't very good for pretending to be a crocodile, but they're much better for the whole 'weird things brushing up against your leg' bit," he says, intact with air quotes and everything.

Diane thought for a minute. She hadn't been at camp for too long, so she didn't know where a lot of things were. She didn't even think there was a pool... "Well I'm not sure.. I know there's a lake and a beach, and I've heard rumors of a hot spring in the back of the woods over there..." after thinking about it, she wanted to go to the hot spring, or at least look for it. It was always nice to warm up and cool down in some hot water.

taleis perks up almost instantly at diane's mention of a hot spring. it probably looks comical, but taleis doesn't really care, because hot springs.

"where exactly is this hot spring?" taleis asks. hot springs are definitely his style. they're like hot tubs, but natural and stuff. they're awesome. plus, his fashiony friends whom he maybe-kinda-sorta stole off of his aunt said that hot springs were, like, good for your pores, or something. whatever it was, hot springs are good for you, mentally and physically. taleis is a strong believer in the magic of hot springs.

Diane looked towards the woods, scanning the outer lining for the entrance she had heard of. "Oh! Over there!" she said, pointing to a small opening in the trees with a light brown trail leading inside. She stood up and signaled for Taleis to follow her in the woods, and started walking. "It should be about a quarter of a mile in, or at least that's what the Hermes boy said."

taleis grins widely at diane, jumps up to his feet and slips them into his flip flops. he wrinkles his nose at the thought of getting his feet all dirty, but, oh well. prices must be paid for hot springs, or something like that.

he skips after diane, singing a little song in his head. it goes kind of like, 'hot springs, hot springs, hot springy springy springs!' it's truly a lovely song. taleis always knew he was destined to be a songwriter. (he actually didn't, and he's probably not, but, oh well. what can you do.)

Diane grinned and chuckled a little bit, Taleis was pretty fun to be around. "Nice song."
She wished she had brought her shoes with her, so every other step she took was followed by a cringe, and sometimes a small pain filled sound effect to go along with it. Maybe when she got there she could pretend to be a hot spring crocodile... Did those exist?

She pondered the thought until she was interrupted by a sudden drop off she was not expecting, and fell a few feet. Luckily she only landed on some grass, but she managed to cut up her ankles a little bit on the way down. "Ah dammit..." Oh well. She got up, and continued walking anyways. Any germs would be killed by the heat in the hot spring, if it existed.

taleis shoots diane another grin and chips, "thanks!"

it's irritating getting his feet all dirty, but it must be awful for diane who doesn't have shoes. taleis frowns a little. still frowning, he looks down at his flip flops, then at diane's feet, and then back at his flip flops.

he hears her swear and notices a cut on her foot. ouch, that's gotta hurt. "do you want my flip flops?" he asks before he can even think about it. "they may not fit, but being barefoot can't be fun." taleis frowns again, and then adds, "well, they may fit. i don't spend a lot of time staring at people's feet."

Diane wasn't one to accept help very often, as she liked to seem independent. She really appreciated the thought and would love to use his shoes, but she wouldn't feel right about him being barefoot for her sake. Perhaps she should've made a better choice by bringing shoes in the first place, but she didn't think she'd need it. After all, she was only planning on walking in the grass to the lake and swimming. She had been awfully surprised that there wasn't any dog poop around, seeing how many pets people had around camp.

"Thanks but no thanks, I walk around barefoot all the time so I'll be okay! Plus, I'm a daughter of Apollo, so I'll be able to heal any cuts I get."

It was true that she was a daughter of Apollo, but she didn't have any healing powers. She wished that she did, but unfortunately she was just born without them.
