Three Months Later
Caia relaxed on the beach in the Bahamas, sun glasses on, her cutest swimsuit fitting her just right, and her favorite book. Tom was out in the water, splashing around, and she was opting more for just the tanning part. But, for some reason, a barking dog kept drawing her attention. There had been plenty of barking dogs on the beach today, but for some reason, this one kept making her stop reading. Tom came over then.
“Hey sweetie.” He said, kissing her. “What’s up?”
“Nothing. Just distracted.’ She laughed, putting her book down. She looked around to where the dog might be, and found it playing a little bit down from her with two guys and a Frisbee.
“Just throw it already Thomas.” One of the guys said. “He wants to chase it.”
“I’m just having some fun with him Jonathan.” The other one said. Caia looked over at Tom, who was staring too.
“Coincidence.” He said. “It has to be.”
“Is there any chance they got out and somehow found bodies?” Caia asked. “Is there any way they could’ve escaped?”
“I…I don’t know…” Tom said. One of the guys, the one with sandy brown curls, looked over at them with a big smile on his face. He winked at them before lacing hands with the other guy and walking down the beach with the dog. Caia looked at Tom.
“If it is them, at least they are together now.” She said. Tom nodded.
“I’m going to go grab us a couple drinks.” He said, giving her a kiss. “I’ll be right back.” With that, he headed over to the little beach bar. Caia looked back down the beach, to where the guys had disappeared to, but they were gone.
“At least you’re together now.” She said with a small smile on her face before turning her attention back to her book, no barking dog this time to distract her.
