"Can't say that I've seen you around here before," said Tyler.

"Oh, I'm from Ohio. I'm staying with my Aunt and Uncle for the summer," I said.

"Cool. Whatcha reading?"

I showed him the book.

"Oh, I've read that one. It's good," He said.

I smiled not quite sure what to say.

"TYLER!" a voice called from the water, "YOU COMING OR WHAT?!"

"I'LL BE RIGHT THERE!" Tyler yelled back.

"I'll see you around?" He questioned.

"Yeah," I said.

"Alright, bye," he said and walked away.

I sighed and smiled watching him grab his board and head back into the water. I looked at my cell phone. It was 6:25! Crap, I needed to gte back to the house! I gathered up my stuff and jogged back to the house wich was 2 minutes away. I ran up to my room and threw on jeans and a clean shirt and ran to the living room.

"Ready?" Uncle Johnny asked.

"Yup," I replied.

"Jennie!" he yelled up the stairs.

"Coming!" She said rushing down the steps.

"Lets get the show on the road!" Uncle Johnny said.

We got back from Sunset Ribs at about 7:45. It looked the exact same way I remembered, and I liked it that way.

"I'm gonna get a shower," I said to my Aunt.

I walked up the stairs and took a nice hot shower. I dried my hair and changed into an old basketball shirt from school and navy blue gym shorts. I plopped down onto my bed and flipped on the TV. Nothing was on so I decided to call my dad and just tell him how things are going.

"Hello?" his voice answered.

"Hey, Dad," I said.

"Katie! How's California?"

"Hot!" I exclaimed.

He laughed and asked, "How's Aunt Jen and Uncle Johnny?"

"Good," I said.

"Well, that's good," He said.

"Well, I just wanted to call you and check in," I said.

"Alright, call me tomorrow?" He asked.

"Yep, love you," I said.

"Love you too, bye" He said.

"Bye," I said.

I closed my phone and chose some random thing to watch as I drifted to sleep.
