It was a hot summer day in Medora, and D.C. couldn't wait until they got into the
water. She had invited Alex, Jordan, Bear, Kaiden and Declan to the palace, intending
for them to have a pool party. Alex had arrived a good ten minutes before, and D.C.
had taken the initiative and styled Alex. She was quite proud of her work. Alex was
wearing a dark purple backless one-piece, white bejewelled thongs and a gauzy white
over-robe. Her hair was wavy and tumbled across her shoulders, and she wore a tiny
bit of dark purple (waterproof) eyeshadow and some (also waterproof) lip-gloss. For
herself, she had chosen a dark blue one- piece that only had one sleeve, a silver over-
robe and silver sandals. She had put her hair in a ponytail, leaving some strands out,
and also applied waterproof silver eyeshadow and waterproof pink lip-balm. They
both looked stunning, and D.C. was sure that both Jordan's and Kaiden's jaws would
drop. When D.C. mentioned this to Alex, she vehemently shook her head and denied
it, but D.C. could see the look in Kaiden's eyes whenever he saw Alex. So today she
was conspiring to bring them together.
Alex's heart beat erratically. She was frantic with nerves at seeing Kaiden again. No
matter how hard she tried to deny it, she couldn't. When Dix came back, she was
going to kill her! As they both stepped outside, she sent a glare at the princess, who
was already running to Jordan. D.C. shrugged and winked as Kaiden entered. Alex had
to fight to keep her jaw from dropping. Kaiden looked, for lack of a word, hot. Alex
blushed as he caught her staring and smirked, then went over to her. She mock-glared
at him, but was quick to trail after him when he whispered, "Follow me."
Kaiden entered the gates of the magnificent pool and stopped in surprise. His jaw
almost dropped as he saw Alex standing near D.C. and Jordan. She looked simply
phenomenal. Apparently she thought the same about him, for when he looked up,
she was staring at him. Smirking, he closed the distance between them and
whispered, "Follow me." He led her to a tiny ledge overlooking the pool that was quite
high up. Beside him, Alex gulped. She was probably scared of heights, Kaiden thought.
Alex gulped as she saw the ledge overlooking the pool. It was tiny. Kaiden half-led,
half- pulled her there. "Kaiden," she whispered, "don't you think this is a bit risky?"
He smiled down at her. "Well, Alex, what's life without a little risk?"
And without further ado, he pushed her off. Alex entered the water with a splash,
dimly noting Kaiden entering the water too. She couldn't take note of anything else,
mainly because of the boy right next to her. Kaiden grinned at her, and, without
warning, kissed her.
And you know what? It felt right. So Alex let go of all her reservations and kissed back.
They surfaced to catcalling and whistles, but despite that Alex couldn't stop smiling.
For, after all, like Kaiden had said, what was life without a little risk?
