Cinna POV

When we pulled up to the beach, I was amazed to see how many people there really were here. I unbuckled my seatbelt and opened the car door. Everyone but Karkat had gotten out already. Once I stood up, I took off my top, revealing the new white bikini with the pair of cherries that I had bought yesterday when I first arrived at Paradise Beach.

The sun was bright and hot, making everyone but me, Karkat and Sollux jump into the ocean's water.

I stabbed an umbrella into the sand and put a beach towel down. My towel matched my bikini, white with a pair of cherries in the top, right corner.

"Want anything to drink?" Sollux offered to me and Karkat. A line of shops and bars lined the beach a few meters away.

"Water." Karkat.

I smiled to Sollux. "Strawberry Lemonada please?" The Lemonada products were all delicious, and I knew for a fact that every drink shop on a beach made them.

Sollux nodded and headed off, leaving me and Karkat alone again.

I stretched out on my towel, my hands under my chin as I watched everyone splash around.

Gamzee was holding Tavros on his shoulders, while Equis has Nepita on his. It looked like they were playing chicken for a moment, until they all fell on their backs and dissappeared into the salty water.

Nepita popped up, her tongue sticking out as she giggled. Equis just stood. Tavros and Gamzee looked as if someone gave them both crack. It was so heartwarming the way they acted like brothers.

Feferi and Eridan were fighting.

"So." Karkat took me out of my thoughts. I looked to him kindly. "It seems like we are alone a lot, doesn't it?" His tone was kind.

I nodded to him. "I have a question to ask you."


"How would you like to move out of that crummy appartment and into my house with me?" I smiled, closing my eyes slightly.

His mouth was agap. Unable to reply.

"Here you go guys." Sollux's lisp voice took our attention away from each other.

I took my drink as he handed it to me. "Thank you Sol!"

"No problem, it's thanks to you I got these cool swim trunks." They were a dull gray color, outlined with red and blue.

Karkat took his water from his friend and sat there in silence. I couldn't take the akwardness anymore, so as soon as I finished my drink, I stood and ran to the sea.

Once I got in striking distance, I tackled Gamzee and Tavros into the water. Starting a playful war of Tag.

Karkat POV

I looked at Cinna, my mind racing. She looked like she was having the time of her life right now.

Sol looked at me, I could tell from the corner of my eye.

"Whats wrong bro?" His lisp voice broke the silence.

"Cinna just asked me if I wanted to move in with her." I confessed. Then, all I heard was faint giggling, laughing and the sound of waves crashing onto the sand.

"What did you tell her?" His question rang in my ears.

I took a sip of water. God damn my throat felt like the sun had dried it up. "I didn't say anything. Luckly you walked up."

I looked at Cinna again. She was now running from Gamzee on the edge of the sand. He chased her, but she outran him. When Gamzee got close to her, she stopped and ducked, making him trip and fall face first into the wet sand.

I watched her help Gamzee up, her face looked sad and sorry.

"I think you should." Sollux again broke my thoughts. "I mean, look at her. She's fucking hot! I'd say yeah in a fucking heartbeat."

I finished off the water Sol bought for me. "Thanks." I stood and ran at Cinna. She was alone for now, and I could give her my answer.
