Girls (And Boys) Just Want To Have Fun (At The Pool) [OPEN]


Recommended Posts

Carmen wasn't one to get into the water first, deciding it was best that she find a new reclining seat and lay back. It was high time that she enjoyed herself a little bit. Little to no schoolwork, having only just begun at Claremont, and with the summer sun in the air she was already out of class. It was only natural that she lay back and enjoy, more like a lizard on a hot rock if anything, taking out a refreshing fruity soda drink she had picked up from one of the Hispanic markets, the same kind she would get back on the island. A quick use of a bottle opener and she was relaxing away, mindlessly flicking through a fashion magazine that she had stored away.

 

She had a few more drinks stored away in a small lunch pal inside her bag, along with some fruits to eat that she had gotten for everyone, even Neko. A simple stretch of her body and she was perfectly content to stay where she was. In fact, Carmen thought she might just never get in that pool where she was, slowly however being enticed at the sight of a barbecue being prepared.

Neko looked around for a moment, seemingly unsure of herself. She hadn't heard any of the sirens Wilona had mentioned, so maybe the police everyone was worried about weren't coming. She sat down by the edge of the pool, peering at her wide-eyed reflection in the water, then settled down into one of the nearby pool chairs after brushing off a layer of dust. It was obvious that they weren't the first teenagers to come this way, she decided, and so she wasn't going to worry about it. She waved her hand and produced a chuzao shamisen, a curved Japanese guitar, and without taking the time to tune it began picking out notes that nonetheless sounded perfectly formed. 

 

"Mm." Owain peered at the pool himself, looking uncertain. "How does it stay so clean?" he inquired thoughtfully. "These pools are standing water, they have those cleaning machines...but surely no one tends it here?" He shot an uncertain look at the house, his eyes widening. "Unless..."

Mostly oblivious to the worries of some of his friends and admittedly distracted by the his bikini-clad classmates (probably in ways that his girlfriend would not completely approve, then again he was a teenage boy), Luke was grinning ear to ear when he joined the rest of the team by the poolside. 

 

He unceremoniously ditched his stuff, towel, flip flops and hat, at a safe distance from the pool, being already clad only in his swim trunks and headed toward the water.

 

"Watch out below!" He shouted enthusiastically, jumping into the air and diving in with a massive splash, one that reached even those who were not yet in the the water, but still close to the pool. He remained under the surface for a few moment, before emerging with a triumphant "Whohooo..."

 

"Come on jump in people!" Luke waved at the others that were still waiting. "Time to get wet." He joked. Now, deep down, he could somewhat understand their worries, the situation was definitely a bit strange, yet he has no reason not to trust Wilona and Naomi and well... a bit strange wasn't exactly uncommon in the life of a teenage superhero anyway. 

 

"Anyone up for a chicken fight?" He suggested a few moment later. "My shoulders are ready for action..." He added, playfully flexing his muscles.

Paper

 

Leon approached the pool, bringing up the rear. He caught sight of Wilona midair before gravity did its thing and she plunged into the water. He noted the scars but paid them little mind.

‘She doesn’t look too bad in that.’

He found himself watching the water a little longer then he had meant before realizing who it was he was looking at and yanked his attention away.

 

He passed Neko as she was settling into one of the deck chairs, tossing his things into another empty chair as she began to strum her conjured instrument.

“Nice.”

He glanced in her direction as he pulled off his shirt. He gave her a  smile and nodded slowly along to the melody. He moved pass the lounging Carmen over to the poolside just as Wilona hopped out to help Naomi with the grill.

 

He gave a low whistle as he stopped next to Owain, patting him on the shoulder. He brought up an arm as Luke as he decided to follow Wilona’s example.

“Don’t worry, man. They probably still have somebody that comes around to clean it once a month or something. No one that lives in place like this cleans their own pool.”

He chuckled as he wiped off some of the water from the splash.

“At least the scenery is nice.”

Leon grinned, nodding back towards the lounging cat girls then glanced over at the other two by the makeshift grill. He watched Naomi as she walked over to sit on the pool’s edge.

 

“You’re on.”

Leon called back to his roommate with a grin.

With no sign of any authorities, Felix shrugged mentally, flew over the fence, and landed nearby to the pool. He considered the group, a faint smile ghosting over his lips. Carefree. Not a bad thing to be. He stripped off his shirt, tossing it aside to reveal an unsurprisingly sculpted physique, and began some warm ups. Not that he needed to do so - he couldn't drown, as he didn't need to breathe, but being an example for others who did have those needs was an important part of who he needed to be.

 

Not that I'm going to tell them off for not doing so. He smiled as he finished up, before looking to Owain. "It's a good point, but as Leon says, I think we're safe enough." He shrugged. "I wouldn't drink any of it, though. That would be a terrible idea, but that's true of most places you could swim."

 

Felix turned to some of the others. That's... Carmen, right? He approached her, settling down on a chair nearby, though not lounging. "Not interested in the water right now?" He asked, before lifting a hand. "If you'd rather I leave you alone, though, don't hesitate to tell me. I won't be offended."

Neko couldn't see Leon or Luke's faces from where she was sitting, just their physiques. For a moment she blushed, mouth wavering and cheeks turning pink, before she strummed her guitar and began to first play, then sing, the song of the beach. The pool wasn't quite the same as the beach, but it was as close as she could get. Maybe they are cute if you don't look too closely at their ears, she admitted to herself, even as she focused on the song. 

 

"Oh, ah...here I go!" Owain studied the pool, obviously drawing up his courage, - then circled around to enter into the shallow end. "I, ah, learned to swim in standing water. There was a pool near..." He hesitated, then pressed on. "Well there was a lady who lived in that one, but she was cordial enough." The water was cold but he would never admit such a thing in front of the other fellows.
