Night swimming

Bored and restless, Jodie wandered from the tents to the lake shore.  Her friends had gone to the local pub and she’d stayed behind to mind their belongings.

The sun had long disappeared behind a ridge, but it was still warm and muggy.  Smiling to herself she stepped out of her flip-flops, removed her clothes, and waded out into the chilly water.

Once her thighs were submerged she pitched forward, breaking into a choppy stroke.  Three minutes later she was treading water when movement on the shore caught her eye.

A man stood next to her clothes removing his own.
