Cassie was so glad to have the day off, from school, work and her brothers. They haven't left her alone since her mother passed away and that was years ago. She sighed as she walked the sandy beaches with her camera in hand. She knew the perfect spot to were she could get a great view of the water crashing on the rocks. It was a sound that her mother loved and helped her sleep.
It was a fairly warm day for Forks, Cassie had on a pair of jean shorts and her favorite T-shirt. The one her mother bought her a few years ago that surprisingly still fit. She passed by everyone else who was on the beach, with a nod and a smile. She wasn't really in the mood to make conversation. She wanted to get to the spot before dark hit.
She passed the tree that had been there long before she moved here she was sure, and it looked like it was ready to come down. Cassie made her way up the rock, scraping her knee in the process with a loud, "Ouch" Sighing when she finally got to the top of the large boulder. Smiling to herself she took her camera out of her bag and started going at it.

(Hi, could you put a time tag on your post, please - like, which book it's set in - I need to know how old I am!)
So it was the weekend and Gabe actually had free time. Usually he spent Saturday mornings practising for whatever set he had to perform that night; either that or he always had some work to catch up on. However, that week the club/lounge/bar scene had collectively shut up shop, it seemed - or at least Gabe Rydell was not on their list of performers to accept for a weekend gig. To be honest, the entire deal left him feeling a little blah. What was he supposed to do with his time now? His friends were busy (no surprise considering that it was well known that he was a no-fly zone at weekends) and any work he needed to do was... too boring to even consider.
At length, he had decided that maybe it would be a good idea to get out of Forks for a while at least. As such he had driven his cherry red Mustang out to La Push, the weather - for once - looking pretty good for a walk along the beach. Taking advantage of the fact that the place looked pretty deserted, he had taken his socks and shoes off and rolled his jeans up to his knee (as far at they would go). It was kind of nice to feel this aloneness sometimes - and only sometimes - Gabe was a highly social creature, but on occasion, this was nice.
Just as he was considering whether to take his plaid shirt off from atop his plain t-shirt, he heard the distinct sound of a picture being taken. He glanced around, noticing a girl not a few feet away sat upon a boulder. Lifting his free hand in a friendly wave, he grinned at her. "Oh hey, sorry... did I get in your shot?" he paused, knowing that most women wouldn't mind this fact, before carrying on. "So what do we have here? A real Little Mermaid..."

(Does that work?)
Cassie smiled as she looked out over the water. When something waving caught her attention from the corner of her eye. She turned her head and pushed on of her curls out of her eyes, smiling she waved back. She wasn't sure who it was, her vision wasn't all that great. But he wasn't to bad looking from a distance. Shaking her head, she couldn't loose herself in her thoughts that easily. She does that to often.
"No worries, i don't think the photo will be ruined." She yelled down to him. "A mermaid huh? Not quite that fond of the sea."
She then realized the yelling probably wasn't the best way to talk to someone. "Hang on." she yelled again. She put her camera back into her case and started climbing down. Cassie went as slowly as she could so she wouldn't fall like she did every other time climbing down this thing. Just then her foot slipped and she ended up at the bottom on her bottom. With a loud "Ouch!"

(Works perfectly )
Gabe's grin only brightened as the girl atop the rock waved back at him, even though she most likely couldn't really see it from her position. He liked meeting new people, though, and even though he had been enjoying, to a certain degree, the rare alone time, he knew he wouldn't have been able to wait that much longer before he went a little stir crazy. Plus he tended to get along much better with girls than guys anyway - he didn't really know why. He laughed and raised an eyebrow as she shouted down to him, just waiting for her to join him.
Watching as she tripped off the boulder, landing square on her butt, he bit down on his lip, trying not to laugh, though he found the spectacle was pretty funny - you know, once he'd peered round to make sure she wasn't speared on a rock or something. He bounded over, dropping his trainers and shirt on the ground as he proffered her a hand. "Hey... are you okay?" he asked smoothly, just a hint of a grin at the corner of his mouth and in the sparkle of his eyes. After a second, his lips split into a white-toothed grin. "Y'know, we haven't even met and you're already throwing yourself at my feet..." He laughed good naturedly.

Cassie felt so silly when she landed right on her butt in front of some stranger. She turned bright red, she tried to stop it from happening, but there was no use. Cassie laughed a little when she replied, "Yeah, i think so." she tried standing up but it hurt to bad. She didn't want him to know that tho. "How about we sit and get to know each other then, So you can throw yourself at my feet as well." she added grinning.
Cassie hadn't really met much people, but she was glad for the peace and quiet too. But she was also glad that there were people in this ghost town. She just wished they had better timing.
