Brianna Simmons Chapter 3
As they walk away the other couple sits and watches them. Amanda turns to James and askes him what he thinks they should do. “James,” whispers Amanda as she pulls at his sleeve “What should we do?”
“Do about what?” James whispers back.
“What should we do about this guy claiming to be Brianna’s boyfriend?” asks Amanda.
“Brianna said he is her boyfriend so there is nothing we can do.” Replies James.
“But…James!” hisses Amanda as she stares at him in disbelief.
“But what, Amanda?” James hisses back through gritted teeth.
“Never mind!” replies Amanda as her gaze shifts to the couple at the other side of the pool.
“Amanda, there is no need to be plotting to get her away from him,” says James with knowing in his voice “After all he is her boyfriend.”
They hush as the other couple walks toward them hand in hand. Brianna nods her head at James and Amanda and then formally introduces Adam to them. “You guys,” starts Brianna as she addresses James and Amanda “This is my boyfriend Adam Tayler.”
“How do you do, Adam?” asks James rising to shake Adams hand.
“Hello! Replies Adam in his deep northern drawl.
“Brianna!” exclaims Amanda.
“Yes, Amanda?” asks Brianna as she looks over at her friend.
“Brianna, can I talk to you alone for a minute?” answers Amanda the whole time her eyes never leave Adam.
“Sure, Amanda.” Replies Brianna then turns to inquire “Adam?”
“Yes dear?” asks Adam turning away for Amanda to gaze into Brianna’s eyes.
“Adam, Amanda and I are going to go for a ride,” answers Brianna “Will you be ok here with James?”
“Sure darling,” replies Adam “I will be fine.”
“Okay!” states Brianna as she kisses his cheek and then look over at Amanda “You ready?”
“I am when you are.” Answers Amanda chewing on her bottom lip.
“Bye dear!” states Adam as he drops into a chair next to James and looks up at his beautiful girlfriend and his gaze follows her as she walks toward the door.
“Bye sweetheart!” Brianna calls back to him, turning to wave one final time before walking out the exit door.
