A/N: This was requested by @diana-interiano. Hope you enjoy it and thankyou for reading my Wattpad story! - Not gonna lie this is kinda inspired by the oxygen music video from Teen Beach Movie.
I locked my apartment door as I looked down at my phone, seeing a text from my best friend Harrison saying he had just left. I smiled and tucked my board under my arm and walked down the stairs to the ground floor. Harrison and I had been best friends since we were 10 and joined the local surf club together. He was now a lifeguard at the beach and I had become a surfing instructor for little kids and families. I love my job and I get to do my favourite thing all day so I couldn’t be happier.
As I walked out onto the street, I smiled at the darkness around me, not a single person in sight. Harrison and I had agreed last night that we wanted to surf really early in the morning and watch the sun rise. The sky was still dark and the street lights were glowing dimly, creating a cool atmosphere. I walked along the road to the main street where a few cars drove along. I carefully crossed the road to the parade and pulled my phone out my bag to text Harrison where I was. He replied a few seconds later, saying he was waiting by the tower. I grinned and tucked my phone back in the pocket.
I walked a little further, seeing the tower and stairs down to the beach. I skipped down them, searching for Harrison’s silhouette. I frowned when I reached the bottom of the tower and no one was there. I stuck my board in the sand and skirted the tower. Where was he? I was looking behind the stairs when I felt a pair of hands cover my eyes. I jumped but grinned and turned around to see Harrison’s freckled face beaming. He chuckled and pulled me into a hug. I tightly hugged him back but playfully slapped him when i drew back. “Don’t scare me like that Harrison, I almost had a heart attack.” He just laughed and ran his hand through his gorgeously waved hair. “Come on grab your board and lets get out on the water.” I nodded and put my bag in a discreet place by the bottom of the tower. We walked round to where I had stuck my board in the sand and Harrison grabbed his, securing his cord around his ankle.
We started walking to the water, the sun only starting to streak the sky with tinges of orange and pink. I looked to Harrison to see his brunette hair golden with the glow of the bronze light. His face chiselled with the shadows cast from the clouds and his freckles adorning his face like constellations mapping the sky. I blushed when I realised I was looking at my best friend a bit too much. Harrison turned to me and grinned when he saw me looking at him, winking as a he started running to the water. My face heated up even more and I shook my head before running after him.
Harrison paddled out to the oncoming waves, lifting up to roll over them. I layed down on my board and followed him, admiring the swirling reflection of the hazy pink sky. We caught a few waves and I watched as Harrison stood on his board as he rode out a small wave. He faced me and beamed, placing his hands over his heart and falling backwards off his board. I laughed, my stomach fluttering.
After a while, we decided to put our boards back on the sand and swim instead. I stuck my blue and white board in a small pile of sand before running towards the white waves again. I swum out to Harrison who was treading water, waiting for me. We swum around, watching as the sun slowly rose and laughing as we dived under waves. I was standing watching the clouds lighten as the sun peeked over the horizon, casting vibrant oranges and reds across the sky when I felt a woosh of water crash into my face. I turned to my side to see Harrison cheekily grinning at me as I spluttered. “Oops sorry Y/N.” He smirked, the water swirling around his tanned body. “OH IT IS SO ON!” I yelled, trying to run through the water to him. I frantically shoved the water in front of me, causing cascades of the white froth to topple over his head. I laughed as Harrison emerged from the water, his expression shocked. “Oy come here missy!” He yelled, scooting through the water to get me.
I tried to swim away but I felt his hand wrap around my ankle and drag me back, pulling me through the water to him. He scooped me up and threw me over his shoulder, wading as I pummeled his back. “Let me gooo!” I laughed, my head dangerously low to the water. “If you say so.” Harrison responded before launching me into the water, taking me by surprise.
I pulled myself to the top again and broke the surface, wiping the water off my face. “HARRISON!” I yelled and he cheekily grinned, wading towards me. I stood shocked, my mouth open in astonishment. I waited until he was a little closer and then splashed water right at his face, making him gasp. I laughed and watched him splutter with shock. “You deserve it you idiot.” I said, making Harrison chuckle. He continued advancing towards me and i grinned, ready to attack again. He reached his arms out towards me and I got ready to push more water in his face but he managed to grab one of my wrists and stopped me from splashing. “Hey let me go!” I yelled in between laughs, trying to pull my hand out of his. Harrison kept a tight grip though and pulled me closer. I tried to pull away, moving back along the sand but he grinned, managing to tug me even closer. I flailed my free hand in front of him, trying to splash him but he grabbed it with his other hand, giving me no way to free myself.
I tried to tug myslef out of his grip but he pulled my hands towards his chest, brining me to him. I giggled through breaths, trying to free myself. Harrison pulled me even closer to him, so I was standing in front of him. He still had a firm grip on my hands and I grinned, still struggling to get myself free. “S-stop, let me go!” I stumbled out, breathless from laughing so hard. “Nope.” Harrison beamed, his hazel eyes looking straight at mine. I let out a giggle but stopped when I realised the intensity with which he was looking at me. My smile fell as I felt him let go of my wrists and place his hands on my waist. He brought me closer, making my breath hitch as we were only inches away. My eyes flicked to his lips and back to his face. I had one hand placed on his chest and the other on his bicep from where i had been pushing him away and my heart skipped a beat as I felt his body next to mine. Harrison was still looking at me, his eyes searching mine for some sort of answer.
I looked to his lips again and I could feel my heart hammering, begging to touch him. I looked into his eyes and saw the flecks of gold that dotted his irises. “Kiss me.” I breathed out, feeling Harrison’s breath fan over my face. I shut my eyes as he leaned in, pressing his lips to mine. I snaked my hand to the back of his neck and brought my hand to his hair, deepening the kiss. He had one hand cupping my cheek as he kissed me and it felt like time had stopped. I couldn’t feel the lapping water against me, only Harrison’s hands and lips. I felt him pull back as we caught our breaths, scanning each others faces. “You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do that.” Harrison said, his lips slightly swollen. I smiled and brought his head back to mine, “same."
