College Freshmen Lilli Reynolds and Dan Peters made their way through the dense woodland to a ‘secret place’ that Dan knew of.
“How much farther do we have to go?” Lilli asked.
“Just a little,” Dan replied.
Soon they arrived at a scenic creek that opened into a crystal clear cove with shimmering water.
“It’s beautiful, but I don’t see why we had to trek through the woods for an hour just to go swimming,” Lilli observed.
“You said you wanted to try skinny-dipping, but you didn’t think you ever would if you thought someone might be watching. Now, here’s your chance.”
“Okay, I guess. But are you sure no one will see us?”
“I’m absolutely sure,” he said to reassure her.
“Okay, then,” she said beginning to strip off. “Wait, did you hear a buzzing noise?” she asked holding her shirt across her chest.
“There’s lots of buzzing,” he said, “We are in the wilderness. It’s just the bugs and stuff,” he said removing his underwear and wading into the sparkling pool.”
Lilli took another quick look around then removed her pants and joined him.
As the couple began to playfully splash each other and enjoy their ‘us time,’ thirteen-year-old Otis Stodgrass watched his monitor and counted this to be his lucky day.
