Tyler dove in after him, instantly relaxing when she was in the water, all tension seeming to seep out of her muscles. She resurfaced quickly, a faint smile on her face, looking at him, but not directed towards him.
Dark hair messily clung to his forehead and jaw, water trailed his pale features even after he had resurfaced. The petite female followed, emerging from the water's rippled surface, a smile tugging the corners of her lips into a slight smile.
"You're not bad, you should come to the beach with us guys day after tomorrow." Justin found enjoyment in fidgeting in the water, bouncing slightly as he enjoyed the coolness of the waves that washed over his figure.

Tyler laughed softly, shaking her head, one hand resting on the side of the pool so she wouldn't have to waste energy treading water. "Only one day and you're already taking me to meet your friends? Someone's a little excited," she teased, her smile turning into a bit of a smirk.
"I'd be calmer if you weren't this adorable." Justin supplied easily, thin black eyebrows curved with unvoiced laughter. "Besides, you already know me an' Brynn. It'd just be Max and Darren. Hopefully the idea of spending the day with four teenage boys doesn't daunt your liveliness."
The boy's pierced lips pulled into a half, one-sided grin that threatened to usurp the left of his face, arms reached through clear, cool water to snake loosely around the female's small waist and teasingly brush her stomach.
"Now, where was I? I was talking about you being perfect, because you are perfect." Thick black hair fell from his dark eyes with a subtle shake of the head, bangs placing themselves elsewhere and unruly clumps of the dark locks starting off in another direction.
Face pressed closer, his breath ghosted her neck as he traced her face―dark gaze trailed the smoothness of her jawline, grace of her small, soft lips and to her neck and to rest on her chest. Justin's dark gaze then drifted to her eyes, a hushed whisper of: "You're very perfect" piercing the silence.

His breath was warm against her skin, heat coming off his body warming her slightly. She was glad he couldn't see her face as that was the only part of her that felt hot, letting her know without showing her that she was blushing.
"You're very perfect."
Cool water filled the slowly shrinking distance between their bodies, her hands resting on his chest, fingers curling slightly as she tried to wrap her mind around just what it was that was going on, pretty sure she was being used but not entirely certain of it, either. Not sure enough to push him away. Not uncertain enough to pull him closer. Nothing to say entering her mind, so silence remained in the air, his words left floating between them.
