“You can’t sit here all day!” complains Alex.
Hal sighs. “I’m not going anywhere.”
Beside them, Tom groans.
“Give it a rest, Alex!” he says.
Tom shrugs. “Vampires can’t swim.”
Alex rounds on Hal.
“You can’t swim?”
Hal’s expression answers for him, and Alex laughs.
“We’ll teach you!” she says.
Hal looks horrified, and Tom takes pity on him.
“Aw, leave ‘im be. He’s broken enough vampire rules for today.”
“He’s an EX-vampire,” stresses Alex. “But I’ll allow it.”
Hal relaxes, but he knows Alex added “this time” in her head.
And he’s never coming to the beach again.
