He held her hands and made her feel comfortable in the water. She stood before him in her cute jacket and he couldn't help but want to make her feel okay. People had their fears and just because hers seemed like something simple, that didn't mean it made the fear go away. He would glance over at her and then he would hug his arms around her waist [b "I know. I like being around you too. It puts me at ease"] he admitted and caressed her cheek.
[b "I know you can do it, so you just have to take some baby steps to get there. If you need my help. I'll help you"] he promised and then he would lean in and kiss her soft lips. He felt her warm hand against his cheek and then he would go after her lips more, his hands moving down her shoulder and along her side. He held her close and kissed her sweetly until he realized he must have been taking advantage again.
His eyes watched her and then he would take in a deep breath [b "As long as you're okay with it too. You're right. I can't help it"] he shrugged and felt her lips kissing him back again. She caught him looking at her chest and then he would bite on his lip [b "yeah...it's hard not to when you're so pretty. You can touch me if you want. I'd actually...like that"] he told her, seeing her arms still around him.
She asked him the question he wanted to hear and it would make him smile bright [b "Really Ara? I want to. You can take your time....and break up with him. Just let me know if I can help. I won't look at another girl if you're available. I really like you"] he pulled her in closer, his arms moving down her back as his hands slid down her skin to her behind. [b "If your available, I want to give us a shot and I could easily give this dating thing a go again"] he promised her.
[b “You are amazing,” ] Ara repeated. She saw him look happy and it made her smile to know she could light him up a bit too. She hoped she could keep him happy, get him out of this mess that he was in.
Being with him in the water was easier because his arms wrapped around her and he would hold her hand. She would feel like anyone else would poke fun at her for being so afraid. Ara would half laugh and nod [b “Trust me I already do. And…yes, it’s very nice being around you. I trust you,” ] She felt safe enough with him. He wouldn’t try to drown her. He caressed her cheek and wiped her tears. She felt so warm, and safe. She smiled a little when he said not to cry. [b “Sorry…but I do feel better, it’s still just hard.” ]
Ara giggled, and smiled, [b “Thank you Sylus. You make me feel like I can really do it.” ] And she felt really good about that. Felt like he would do good to being around her too. She had her arms around him, and holding her eyes on his, it was hard for her to resist. Sylus leaned in and he kissed her softly. He kissed him softly back. She caressed his cheek, seeing him grin the way he did. IT was beautiful. They shared another kiss and it was hard not to want to snuggle up into him and just kiss innocently like this.
Sylus pulled back and she drew a sigh, and then she would shake her head, “No, don’t apologize. I like…it… You feel warm. We like each other, so, it can’t be helped.” She squeezed his hand. She kissed him right back. She saw his eyes drop down her bikini. Ara giggled, [b “Thank you…and you yourself. I’m trying hard not to look down her face because…it makes me want to…” ] She blushed, [b “touch your chest…you know.” ] Ara shyly replied. She still hung onto him, wanting to be intimate with him. She felt so safe with him, comfortable.
Ara bit down her hip, wanting to push things aside, [b “I um…Sylus…I…Let’s date. I’ll break it up…soon, tomorrow or when…I see him. Just please…don’t look at other girls. I don’t think I could take that,” ] She met his eyes, really not wanting to get hurt. Not wanting to be another girl to him. Wanting it to really matter.
He saw her smile and he knew she was in a much better mood than before. He didn't like seeing her sad, especially not after what she's done for him and all that she was trying to do. He really wanted her to be happy, because she deserved it. [b "Yeah. It's really sweet of you. I'm glad you think of me that way though"] he felt happy.
He helped her into the water and then he hugged his arms around her, not wanting her to feel afraid or cry. She deserved to be safe and happy. Sylus wouldn't let her get hurt. [b "I'm sorry it happened. Just keep away from the pool when you're around jerks like them. You should be around the pool with people like me"] he chuckled and then he caress her cheek and then he wiped the tears from her eyes. [b "Don't cry. You don't have to cry"] he tried to tell her, glad that she was calming down.
[b "You can do this. You can do anything....I've seen you"] he felt her arms around him and then he met her blue eyes and kissed her warm lips. He wanted to comfort her, but when she kissed him back over and over, he'd smile [b "I like you too Ara"] he wrapped his arms around her waist and held her close to his chest. [b "Well I'm just telling you what you can already achieve. You'll be fine"] he assured her and then he felt her lips kissing his again. He kissed her softly and had a smile on his face. [b "You can count on me"] he leaned into her hand and grinned, leaning in to kiss her soft lips again because they were addicting. They got him excited and as they stood in the pool, they started making out slowly.
Sylus would pool back a bit and he'd shrug [b "Sorry for not holding back. I can't help it if I like you"] he hoped she didn't mind it. She kissed him back, so he figured that either way, she liked him too. HIs eyes looked down at her bikini and then they met her eyes again. [b "It also doesn't help that you look so sexy right now"]
Ara gently smiled at him [b “I do? I guess there not many people you’ve met that do…I suppose I haven’t too much either.” ] She shrugged.
Ara returned with a life jacket on. She dared herself to step into the water. She still felt scared but having a hand to hold was helping. Otherwise, she’d probably get out of here very quickly or cry. She told him what happened. She still felt scared of something like that happening again. [b “Well, it happened and they did.” ] She never liked to be around a person who didn’t like her around a pool that was for sure.
She felt his hand on her cheek, caressing it. Her cheeks warmed. He was so caring. She smiled at him when he said sweet words to her. “Mmm, they were. They don’t? I’m staying a way.” ] She felt the warmth in her chest, feeling so good having someone like Sylus comforting her. His fingers brush through her hiar. Her other hand was still gripping onto his hand. He wiped her tears away. He didn’t make fun of her. He was caring and she really liked that. It was so hard not to like him. It was so hard not to want to kiss him for being so nice to her. “Yea, I guess it does. You believe me more than I believe in myself. Thank you…you know, maybe I can do this.” ] She realized she fell so much into his eyes that she didn’t feel nervous about being in the pool right at this moment. Ara wrapped her arms around him too. She looked upat his pretty eyes and then he was leaning in and kissed her softly.
Ara kissed him softly back and hung her arms around him, giving gentle kisses and them meeting his eyes, [b “I like so much,” ] She told him, her heart pounding. She was still aware of the water but she enjoyed feeling safe with him. Maybe…Sylus was good for her too. “You really make me feel like I can be brave…and your so kind…” She would kiss him softly again, “Thank you…” She caressed his wet cheek.
He was a bit embarrassed because he never thought that she would say something like that before. No one ever praised him that much to begin with. He smiled [b "I'm glad you do. You definitely care a lot more than normal people too"] he admitted and then he saw her head out to change.
When she came back with her life jacket, he thought it was cute, but he didn't judge her. People had their fears and even he had his own. He would hold her hands in his and then he'd lead her into the water slowly, helping her until the water was past her waist. He would then hug his arms around her, telling her that he was proud because he figured it must have been a struggle.
She told him what happened and he squeezed her hands [b "That's terrible. They shouldn't be trying to harm you though. That's wrong"] he sighed and then he caressed her cheek and then he shook his head [b "You can get over them. Those guys doing that to you are jerks. They never even stand a chance against you with what you can do. It'll be fine. Just stay away from them if they threaten you"] he told her, brushing her hair back and then smiling as he helped her wipe her eyes. [b "You're not a baby. Anyone would develop a fear like that. IT takes courage to overcome. You will some day because I can tell. You're tough. You have it in you"] he told her, hugging her close and then leaning in to kiss her lips softly.
Ara tilted her head, wondering why he seemed a little embarrassed. She smiled at him [b “I think you try more than most. I like that.” ] She felt like she could see so much good in him. He was a good person at heart, she believed it. And she wanted to pull him away from a bad life like that. Would being with him…make that happen? Could she get him out of dangerous activities.
She came back wit ha life jacket and she heard his light chuckle. She blushed, feeling pretty embarrassed, and knew she must look stupid. She wondered if Sylus would be the type to make fun of her later to someone else. She didn’t think he was the type to gossip but she’s thought about that people before. Sylus would hold her hands, and it made it easier. Holding his hands assured her that he would help her. She trusted that he wouldn’t let anything happen, but her body was still convinced that something horrible wrong would happen, so she couldn’t just knock off that fear.
He hugged her, and it made her smile to hear him say he was proud. She always looked for approval, so she really like hearing that. Her body was trembling though. She half laughed [b “Yea me too, I guess standing isn’t so bad.” ] But she was still so scared. She felt him rub her back and she could calm down a little, and then he kissed her cheek. It was sweet and she loosened her shoulders a bit.
She’d still cling onto one of his hands very tightly. Ara sighed, [b “It’s nothing that special. I was a kid, some kid pushed me into the pool because he was angry for some reason. It was in the deep end. I almost drowned, my dad did save me though. That was bad enough, And my sort of family’ friends kids know-and not all of them are fond of me. So they threaten to throw me in pool, or drown me-they’re joking I think but I’m still scared. Nothing with pools or beaches are ever associated with good things for me. So…it scares me.” ] She frowned, hating talking about it. She felt downright scared about being in the water. She felt his fingers go through her hair, and his eyes on hers. IT was nice to have him hold eye contact with her. It made her feel warm and safe. She’d smile at him and wipe her eyes, [b “I’m sorry I’m such a baby about being in the water. I’m no fun.” ]
He could see her looking really afraid when she went towards the water. Sylus still wanted to make sure she was fine and not panicking. But when she came out in her bikini she looked really pretty and he couldn't stop looking at her.
He told her about swimming and boxing, and a little bit of his past and when she said she admired him, he couldn't help but feel happy about it. [b "Thanks. I try?"] he rubbed the back of his head and then he felt a bit embarrassed. No one's ever really called him amazing genuinely before. The girls at school did, and the people from him swim team, but it meant a lot coming from Ara.
He saw her holding her jacket and he'd chuckle a bit to himself. He would smile and see her step into the water. He held her hands and then he'd lead her slowly down the steps. She looked like she was so afraid, but he would move slowly, letting her hold her jacket. He then hugged her when she made it [b "You did. I'm so proud of you"] he could tell she was scared. [b "You're fine. I'm glad you were able to come in"] he leaned into her and then he rubbed her back a bit and then he ended up pressing his lips against her cheek.
[b "I won't. What happened though? Did you have a really bad experience in the water?"] he wondered, brushing her hair back a bit as he met her blue eyes. She was so pretty, but he wanted her to feel safe with him.
She would release a sigh, looking into the water and feeling the fear crawling up her body. It wouldn’t take long to drown, that’s how she felt and even if she wasn’t worried about drowning…there was just nagging fear that she couldn’t make go away when she was in a pool.
She did like hearing him talk about how he got into it and how he was so determined about it. She didn’t know if she should find it hot or worrisome that he was in some violent activities. [b “You must be good at boxing too… You are really good at swimming. I admire you,” ] She meant it. She saw him look like he was in thought, but she didn’t bother to nag what was on his mind. She liked seeing him think to himself. [b “I don’t know…doing what you want can be hard even if you have a better chance than you. It’s just about determination. You do work hard, and I really like that about you. You’re amazing Sylus,” ] She smiled.
She did go upstairs and then would return in a bikini and a life jacket. She was scared…still. She saw him looking at her and she blushed. She wondered if he thought she looked stupid with the life jacket, he clearly couldn’t take her eyes off her.
“Okay,” She nodded, mostly to herself. She built up the courage to step into the water, and that was much of a bigger step than she’s ever gone in a very long time. She saw him offer his hand. She felt so scared and it showed through her expression. She did trust him. She held his hand and stepped into the water. It freaked her out that the water was to her chest. She wanted to run back, and she didn’t want to move. She took a deep breath, and her eyes warmed up a bit. She knew she must have looked stupid being so afraid.
She half smiled when he complimented her, “Really? Even with this life jacket?” She asked. He’d walk and she froze up but she walked a bit with him. His positivity was making her feel better. She looked into the water and she did walk in it. [b “I did, I stepped into the water. I actually did it,” ] She’d smile a bit. She was clinging onto his hands like her life depended on it. If he didn’t hunger, she would have hugged him. But he did and she clung onto him. [b “Say that to the water when it tries to drown me.” ] She said, and looked at his eyes, her body trembling a bit. Even if she made it inside, and she could stay in the water right now, her body still remembered the trauma and telling her this was too dangerous.
[b “I’m sorry… I must look so stupid. I’m still really scared,” ] She whispered, wiping her eyes, feeling like an embarrassment in front of someone who could swim so well. She'd cling onto him, arms around his shoulders. At least Sylus made her feel more safe, warm. [b "It does feel, bareable with you here though, just don't let me go okay?" ]
He would wait for her and be there for her if she needed him. He'd make sure of that. All he wanted was to keep her safe because she looked so sweet and precious. So innocent. He wanted to date her and keep that innocence protected. [b "It's always scary, but when that day comes, you'll want to overcome it also. You can always ask me for help too"] he smiled and then he talked about his past and how he got into swimming.
[b "Boxing? Yeah! I joined the club at school, but it's not as big as the swi team is right now. I usually just stop by on my breaks"] he told her. All of the hard work it took him to continue swimming made him realize that all of this wasn't just for fun. He was serious about it. [b "THanks. For others doing what they want can come easy, but for me, I had to work hard for it"] he told her and then he ended up going swimming.
He swam around the pool and he would look over at Ara, wondering how he could get her to swim with him. He was glad she decided to step in, so he just waited. When she came out in a bikini, he thought she looked really sexy. She was hot and his eyes couldn't leave hers. She looked so cute also holding her little life jacket.
[b "Come on Ara. I got you"] he walked over to her side and then he held out his hand. [b "I won't let you drown. You can trust me"] he told her, holding her hand and then he led her down the stairs slowly. He let her slowly follow him and then he had her standing in the water. The water reached her chest and he'd distract her [b "You look pretty in your bikini. I love it"] he told her, walking with her and then he stopped. [b "Look. YOu did it! Everything is fine"] he said happily, hot letting go of her hands in case she was scared. He hugged his arms around her to calm her down even more [b "It's just water. You take control of the water, not the other way around"]
It was the sweetest thing to hear him say he’d be there when she texted. She believed him. [b “You’re really kind,” ] She gently smield at him. She watched him go into the pool and she just felt flat out scared to be in it. [b “I don’t know…I guess not for the rest of my life but it’s…well scary.” ] She frowned. She felt pretty terrified.
It made her smile to hear him talk about how he got into swimming. [b “You do boxing too?” ] Sylus must know how to fight then… She felt a little worried. He was technically already a criminal. But it was really nice hearing that he really worked to get what he wanted. She found it admirable. She never really had to work for money but she did have to work for other things. [b “That’s really impressive Sylus. I admire that.” ] She said.
She got splashed, and she’d shake her head. She took a deep breath and decided that maybe she should try it. She nibbled at her lip. [b “Okay…yea, no swimming-I don’t want to do anything that involves my feet going off the ground.” ] She made that clear. She rose up [b “I’ll be back, let me change.” ] Ara smiled.
Ara went back into her house and changed into her red bikini. She even grabbed a life jacket, because she didn’t want to risk it. She’d stand at the small later that lead into the pool but her stomach sank. She’d stare at the water and look back at Sylus. She took a deep breath and climbed down. Then she’d stay perfectly still. She worried about slipping, or what if she end up having her face in the water and not being able to breath? [b “I don’t’ know if I can do this.” ] Ara said, shaking her head, and looking back at Sylus, her voice breaking, “I don’t want to drown.”
He thought about it and wanted to keep her safe at least. HE didn't want anyone coming up to her before or after school [b "Yeah just text me Ara and I'll be there"] he told her and then he smiled and went to change.
When Sylus jumped into the pool, he made a splash and then he would resurface to face her [b "You don't? Oh...okay, but don't you want to get over that fear?"] he asked, hoping she did at least. HE would help her as long as she asked for it.
He'd then swim to the edge and she asked him how he learned. He told her what he did and she would smile at him [b "Well....I did anything so I could swim or do what I wanted. WHen I do boxing, I also need money for gear and things, so I try to make enough to do those as well"] he told her and then he splashed a bit of water towards her.
Then she mentioned the impossible and Sylus felt lucky she wanted to give it a try at least [b "Yeah of course. I won't let anything happen to you Ara"] he promised her, hoping she'd come in with him. [b "You can hold my hand and we can just stand in here. You don't even have to swim around if you don't want to"]
Ara lifted a smile [b “Thank you Sy. I would like that at the end of school,”] She felt like she’d feel safer. She thought about Joseph and she should be asking him not Sylus, but he never really could stay with her until then. Besides…she would have to break up with him anyway. She’s been cheating after all.
Sylus wen tinto the pool, she watched him shirtless and wet. Itmade her smile a little. She wouldn’t dare to go into the water herself. Her eyes fell down to his chest and then back up at his eyes when he spoke. [b “But I am scared. I don’t want to learn how to swim Sy… I don’t want to go in the water, unless it’s no deeper than a bath.” ] She watched him go at the edge of the pool. She smiled, listening to him talk about how he learned.
[b “That’s really cute Sy. I like how determined you are,” ] She smiled, and gasped when he splashed her with some water. She shook her head and laughed [b “You’re going to get my clothes wet.” ] She reminded. She looked into the water and just felt so scared. Then she thought about that knife incident. She didn’t want to always be afraid. She didn’t want to go outside and feel scared all the time that something like that would happen, and she wasn’t so sure she always wanted to be afraid of going in the water too. “If I come in, will you make sure I’ll be okay? Will you hold me? I don’t want to swim…but maybe if I just stand in it.” She said, and figured if she even dared to entertain that thought of going something deeper than her waist, than she’d have to grab a life jacket.
He would look after her because he didn't want anything to happen to her at all. His eyes would glance over and then he would hug her so that she could relax and just feel more comfortable around him. He liked her and he wanted to date, but the least he could do was be there when she needed him. [b "It would hurt! I was just kidding"] he joked and then tried to get a laugh out of her so she'd forget.
When she mentioned she wasn't afraid before, he could understand why. [b "I know. Still, I'm going to walk you to your car so that you don't have anything to worry about"] he promised her and then he ended up staring at the pool. Her pool looked really nice and he wanted to try swimming in it.
He went to get changed and then he headed towards the pool, looking over at Ara and seeing her look at him. He dived into the water and resurfaced, his tattoo on his arm in full view as the water trickled down his body. He would glance over at Ara and smiled as she laughed [b "You don't have to be scared. I can always teach you if you want"] he stood at the edge of the pool and smiled [b "I learned when I was a kid. We went to a community pool. One day I told my dorm mother....I really like this. I saw a team practicing and couldn't get over it. I wanted to do it too. She told me that I had to make some money though, so I did all I could. I mowed lawns, sold lemonade. You name it...I probably did it"] he chuckled and then he would splash some water on her, just a bit.
He made her feel warm and bubbly when he said he would, “Thank you,” ] She rested on his shoulder, wrapping her arms around him. She felt good to know she would have someone on her side if she needed him. She smiled when he agreed but he was laughing [b “We’re not going to pepper spray each other,” ] She laughed. She still felt bad for being so scared. It was…terrifying. She didn’t want to be that girl on the news found dead, or anything that was near as bad. [b “I wasn’t scared of going late at night before,” ] She mentioned, she’s never had anyone do that. But she always did have someone around.
Ara gave a quick nod [b “It’s okay, go ahead.” ] She said, watching him go inside and change, coming out shirtless in trunks. She admired him a bit, staring for a while and watched him go to the edge of the pool. She’d get up, but keep her distance form the pool. She didn’t like looking into that water. Sylus must look at it and see fun, all she could see is ‘I can drown.’
She would then sit on the ground, still keeping her distance, watching him swim around, dive, go under the water. Ara watched the water dripping down him and oh was it-kinda hot.
Ara lightly laughed, [b “Yea, I’m very sure. You know…pools, beaches-they kind of scare me. I do like watching you,” ] Ara smiled, tilting her head. She took out her phone and would take a picture of Sylus, [b “Sy, how did you learn how to swim so fast?” ] Because he did grow up at the orphanage, so she wasn’t sure where he could have taught himself. Or maybe all schools had a pool.
He smiled because he remembered how good she looked in the video. She was really pretty. Sylus faced her and then he'd remember seeing her at the restaurant. IF only that was a real date and if she was really dating him already. HIs eyes would look over [b "Good. If they can't catch you, they can't do anything to you"] he assured her.
He stopped pretending to hold a knife because he could see that it was affecting her. He really did want her to do well, so he'd help her slowly get rid of her fear and make her feel capable. [b "I'll be there if you need me"] he rubbed the side of her arm and then he leaned into her. She said she'd buy him a pepper spray and he would agree [b "Okay, we can both pepper spray one another"] he chuckled.
[b "It's natural to feel that scared, especially as a girl out that late at night"] he helped her relax and then he glanced at the pool, wanting to swim in it. [b "I kind of do....if that's okay"] he'd felt her holding his hand back in return and then he thought about it. [b "Let me change into my trunks"] he went inside and grabbed his backpack, changing into some swim trunks and then he would step outside. He took off his shirt and then he walked towards the edge of the pool, meeting her eyes as he dipped his feet in. He wore some pattered trunks that was black and purple. He'd then see Ara and slowly dive in.
Sylus would swim under and then he'd resurface, running his fingers through his hair back slowly [b "Mmm, that was nice. You sure you don't want to join me?"] he asked curiously.
