Heat, beading sweat on her skin, causing fabric to cling as she maneuvers her swimsuit over her naked body.
He patiently stands guard outside their van.
Cool, water enveloping her body as she slips and falls into the lake.
Laughter bubbles from his lips, as he helps her back onto her unsteady feet.
Warmth, against her chest, as she wraps her legs around his waist, buoyant in the clear water.
As he holds her close and places a kiss on her waiting lips.
Cold, water surrounds them, as the sun slips low in the sky.
They barely notice as they gaze into each other’s eyes.
