Hide and Seek – by Charlie Macias

It’s a new game for her. The young men find her attractive. But now she just rests, cooling off.  One uses so much energy when one flirts! But she likes it. She giggles to herself. It’s no longer about swimming the fastest or being bumped into the pond.  Now the boys want to catch her.

It’s one of those perfect times.

She senses that a big change is happening, but she hasn’t quite figured it out completely yet. Still she’s aware enough to take time and think this through.

It’s so relaxing to be just under the surface of the water. She is enveloped in a coolness that may represent the calm before the storm.
