Chapter 220: Summer Friend
The blond boy in red trunks and the freckled boy in the blue swimming cap were easy to spot, chugging along side-by-side on their boogie boards.
“I did so dive!” Zeke exclaimed. “Off the top step!”
With a funny little snicker, Timothy replied, “You flopped.”
Zeke grinned. “Well, my splashes are biggest!”
“Prove it!” challenged his friend, kicking harder.
Ethan chuckled as the boys churned across the shallow end. Zeke’s courage was rubbing off on Timothy, and in exchange, Timothy made sure Zeke looked before they leapt. It was a good combination, and Ethan wished it could have lasted longer.
