You smile back at the source of the voice, blinking hard to clear the sweat and film from your field of vision. Across from you, a red glistening head bobs above the water grinning back at you.
"I was starting to think I should call someone" he chides.
You laugh a little to yourself and look down at the water. You roll your neck back and forth and drop your outstretched arms back into the hot water, You shoulders wince a bit, locked into their previous position on the rim. The man across the tub stretches out his hand towards you. You feel a bit awkward, sitting her half naked with this bodiless man that suddenly shoves a hand in your direction.
"Ethan" He announces with an air of confidence you wouldn't have expected. You take his hand with the intention of making a quick acquaintance but he has a firm grip and looks directly in your eyes as he shakes your hand. You suddenly feel as if you are sitting stark naked on a park bench as he seems to look right through you.
"I haven't seen you in here before." He queries
"Yeah...I've been pretty lazy lately. Haven't been in in a month or so" you lie.
"Im surprised." he says with a coy smile, "You look like you spend alot of time at the gym."
You feel a little more heat in your face as you blush, but you are fairly certain your head is already the color of a tomato so your embarrassment is incognito.
