I made plans to start looking for a job today. I at least want to begin my search rather than sit around doing nothing. I've always been restless, I like working and being occupied. It gives my mind a break from overthinking.

According to the internet, there are three shops at the beach that are hiring. The drive is less than twenty minutes away and I'm okay with that. Alice tried to convince me to not worry about any of the rent or bills. But if I'm staying with her I refuse to do it for free.

She's been extremely kind in letting me stay with her, I wouldn't take advantage of that. Which is why I'm currently here, determined to find a part-time job.

The beach isn't as crowded as I expected it to be. I did come before it supposedly gets packed.

As I walk to the shopping area I hear my name being called. I recognize their voice but have trouble finding where it's coming from. Stopping near the restrooms I turn around at the sound of shoes hitting the pavement.

I smile when I see Chelsea running towards me, she leans over to catch her breath. Jesse cackles behind her which causes her to roll her eyes.

"Hey, " I say, stepping aside to let someone walk by.

She grins, tucking her hair behind her ear. "Hey Bea, how's life?" She acts casual, still out of breath.

Jesse stands beside us, wrapping an arm around Chelsea's shoulder. I can't tell if they're a thing or not. From what I've seen, the two of them are just close friends.

"Good, I'm looking for a job, " I tell them.

They both look at each other, looking at me with a smile. "The surf shop is definitely hiring."

I raise a brow, "Thank you, I'll check there first."

She nods, "Chase works there and his co-worker just quit so I'm sure you'll get the job." She explains.

That sounds way too simple but I nod nonetheless. The two of them are lifeguards at the kids center so they leave. I make my way to the store that has a giant blue surfboard at the entrance.

Chase stands at the register, his head lifting when the bell rings.

A smile takes ove

om. I let it ring until I'm done. Picking my phone up from my bed I see Thomas' name on the screen.

We have an appointment tomorrow for our first ultrasound. But I doubt it has anything to do with that.

I call him back, getting comfortable on the couch. "What's wrong?" I immediately ask.

"Nothing serious, I have a quick question though." I hear beeping and papers rustling, wondering why he's calling me at work.

I nod though he can't see me. "Okay."

"Before you say no, hear me out." More rustling and cabinets being open and closed. I hum to let him know I'm listening. "The company is having their annual party tomorrow and my parents can't make it. Do you mind joining me?"

I stay silent, I knew about the party already. I really want to say no but Thomas would say yes for me in a heartbeat.

I hesitate but exhale before asking. "What time do you want me to be there?"

I can hear him smiling. "Seven, we'll drive from my house because parking gets bad."

Again, I completely know what he's referring to. And while I'm aware that my parents will be there all I can think about is being there for Thomas.

I also have to buy a dress before tomorrow or borrow one from Alice. I don't realize how late of notice it is until I check the time.

It literally is last minute but I can always figure that out tomorrow. It's really no big deal.
