Whom the Sea Calls
He watched her carefully for another few moments after her triumphant noise, grinning slightly. With a sigh, he waded a little ways away and went back to floating. Once he was afloat, he let his eyes drift shut and hummed a little bit.
Kai dozed off, lazily floating around in the sun with a contented smile on his face.
Eventually, Daisy could float without thinking too hard about keeping herself up. She let the sun warm the exposed top of her body, and the water held the rest. It was truly relaxing; a perfect feeling for her day off.
Feeling completely gone in her relaxed state, Daisy didn’t feel the occasional wave drift her closer to shore until sand made a shushing noise against her back. Disoriented, she sat up and blinked. “Oops…” She squinted out to sea, noticing Kai still in the water. She waved her arm and called out. “Heeey!~ I’ll be going now! I’ve got to make dinner!” Caught up with meeting a new friend, and playing and swimming, she barely noticed how hungry she was!
Disoriented, he woke up, still floating as he shifted his head to find the source of the voice before lifting a hand and waving. Unfortunately, this threw him off balance and he ended up sinking, only to come up a few seconds later, caught between laughing and sputtering as he raised his hand to continue waving.
