Last Day on the Beach
Will looked at the forecast. The temperature was going to be 80 today. Tomorrow, it would be 20 degrees cooler.
“Last day I can go,” he sighed.
When he got to the beach, a good number of people was there. It was a Saturday, so a lot of people were able to enjoy this last day in the sun.
There were only a few days left in the summer. After that, the weather would change. It would be much cooler.
Will, with his suit on, felt the water of the lake. It was a little cooler than it was earlier in the summer. This was Summer’s last stand.
Will smiled, trying to hold on what was left of the day. Since the water was a little too cold, he decided to read a book.
The book he read was a science fiction novel. One of those types of stories where the character lives in a dystopian world. At the height of the world’s civilization, war destroyed it and they had to start over. The result was a world that used steam-punk technology.
Will closed the book. It was a really good read, but he had to take a break. He had to put some suntan lotion on before he got burned. It was the last day for this. A last day to bathe in the sun while reading a good book.
After applying the lotion, Will took a swig of his Pepsi and continued reading. The day was half over, with only half a day of sun remaining….
