Lizzie Buchanan pulled up in her Lexis and sat there looking at the ocean. She didn't realize how much she missed the beach until she saw it. There was part of here that didn't want to go inside. She hadn't been back in almost two years and seeing all of the people that she knew especially the guys would be awkward.
"Lizzie? Lizzie Buchanan is that you?" came a voice breaking into her thoughts. She turned to the direction of the voice and she saw Newmie. He was definitely one of her favorite persons at Baywatch.
"Hey, there Newmie."
"What are you doing here? Mitch didn't tell me that you were coming."
"Considering he doesn't really know I wouldn't think he'd tell you."
"Girl you look great! So what brings you here?"
"Well I can tell you that we could use you with all the new Rookies. Come on I have to see their faces when they see you."
Lizzie walked up the stair s and there right on the deck stood Cody. She wanted to hide, but he saw her and was surprised.
"Lizzie! Oh my God! Look at you! What are you doing here?"
"I'm here for a summer job. How are you?"
"I'm good, but Mitch didn't tell me that you were coming."
"I didn't exactly tell him I was."
"Well I better get to my tower. I'll catch up later. Are you staying with you dad?"
Lizzie walked into the headquarters and found new faces everywhere. Not one person looked familiar to her. She was really glad to be home though. She didn't even know where the office were anymore.
"Hi can I help you?"
"Yeah can you tell me where Mitch is?"
"Yeah hang on. Mitch!" said the girl yelling to a man with his back to them. Sure enough it was her father talking to someone.
"Lizzie! What are you doing here?!"
"What no hello how are you Lizzie?"
"How are you?"
"I'm fine. Sorry I didn't call, but it was kind of a spur of the moment thing."
"I understand. You look great. Listen I have to go make the rounds, but I'll be right back. Hey J.D., look who came to visit."
"Yeah he almost became Lieutenant."
"Lizzie? Little Lizzie?"
'Hey J.D. how are you?"
"Come here girl." he said hugging her
"So you almost became Lieutenant? Couldn't keep up with the competition?"
"No I just got beat out. So what are you doing? How long are you here?"
"I'm here for awhile and I was hoping to get a job."
"J.D. I think that you have a tower waiting for you."
"Oh sorry listen are you staying with Mitch?"
"Yeah for now. You got room for me at your place?"
"Well I'm living with Cody and Caroline."
"Cody as in Cody Madison?"
"Yeah, but I think that Caroline is moving out."
"I'll talk to you later."
"Hi can I help you?"
"Hi I'm Lizzie Buchanan."
"Hi I'm lieutenant Tylor."
"Nice to meet you."
"So what is it that you need?"
"I was hoping to talk about getting a job here."
"Maybe I can help you there. Come on let's go into the office."
Lizzie followed her and they talked. Mitch walked in just at the end of the conversation.
"I see that you tow have met. Taylor I'd like you to meet my daughter Lizzie."
"We've met and I've given her a job."
"Lizzie is that why you came?"
"Yeah I thought I'd spend the summer here."
"That's great we could us the help. Have you talked to mom at all?"
"No actually I was hoping to get permission to use your truck and go pay a few vists on the beach?"
"Cody is out there and so is JD , CJ, Hobie too."
"Great can I have the towers?"
"Yeah here go have some fun."
Lizzie ran out the door and jumped into the truck. Her first stop was to see her baby brother. He'd told her a few months ago that he was a life guard now too. She was really happy that he choose Baywatch as his headquarters.
When she pulled up he looked incredibly handsome sitting in the chair. She walked up the ramp.
"So how's the water?"
"I'm sorry miss, but you can't…Liz?!"
"Hey there stud. Look at you!"
"Hang on I'll get Manny to watch my water. Hey Manny this is Hobie can you watch my water? Thanks. What are you doing here?"
"Well it looks like we are making a family affair this summer."
"You're working here too?"
"Yeah I am. I just got approved."
"Well that's great. Hey you know that J.D. is here?"
"Yeah I saw him earlier. I saw Cody too. So what's new with you? Any plans for the college?"
"I'm thinking about it. Hey are you and Tyler together still?"
"No actually that's why I'm here. Tyler and I broke up and I needed to get away for awhile. I'm thinking that I should just transfer back here and then I can be with you guys more."
"You know we can take care of ourselves."
"Does Mom know you're here?'
"No I haven't called her yet. How is she doing?"
"She's doing well. She's got a new boyfriend that I'm not too fond of, but I'm happy if she's happy."
"She desearves to be happy. At least one of us is getting it right."
"Hey I'm sure that Cody or J.D. is going to want you to move in with them."
"Sorry. I have to get back to my tower, but are you staying at home? "
"Yeah are you making dinner?"
"You know it." he said giving her a kiss on the cheek.
Lizzie got back into the truck to make another stop at Cody's tower to talk to him some more. Ever since she left two summers ago they hadn't really talked. They were somewhat involved, but they'd both moved on with their lifes. She didn't know quite what would happen with them working together.
"Hey there can you save me?"
"Hold on. Newmie, watch my water for me."
"Hey Newman." waved Lizzie
"So what are you doing here?"
"Well I'm working here now I just got a job."
"That's great this is going to be a great summer."
"Yeah I'm hoping so too."
"So are you looking for a place to stay or anything because I think that Caroline is moving out? She's going to New York to become an actress. You can come live with J.D. and me."
"Cody I'm thinking that isn't such a great idea. J.D. and I used to be an item years ago too."
"Yeah I saw him earlier."
"Hey I'm really glad you're here. Maybe we can do dinner sometime?"
"Yeah I'd like that."
Lizzie decided that she should go see her mother now. She could talk to J.D. later after all she had all summer to catch up and who knows maybe something will happen. She just hoped that she didn't cause too many problems with the other girls. Yes this was defiantly going to be a summer to remember.
