(Sarah)

Wiping my tears away I started to drive home through the sleepy town. I just wanted to curl up somewhere and let today become yesterday but I spotted Avia and Colin playing catch on the beach. Avia was in her jogging outfit and Colin...well he looked slightly frightened at her ability to throw like a first-class rugby player! I parked the car and started running down the sandy beach.

"Avia!" I shouted.

Wiping my tears away I started to drive home through the sleepy town. I just wanted to curl up somewhere and let today become yesterday but I spotted Avia and Colin playing catch on the beach. Avia was in her jogging outfit and Colin...well he looked slightly frightened at her ability to throw like a first-class rugby player! I parked the car and started running down the sandy beach.

"Avia!" I shouted.
(Sarah)

"How did you miss that? It isn't humanly possible to miss that throw! It was so easy." Avia shouted.

"It was an easy throw." Colin admitted "It was the speed of it that worried me!"

"What do you mean?" Avia shouted rolling her eyes despairingly.

"It was speeding towards my head at 100 miles per hour. It would have been fatal." Colin shouted back picking up the ball.

"If only!" Avia shouted but I could see the small smile on her face. They'd obviously gotten over their awkwardness. If Avia was already despairing of Colin friendship was defiantly peeking around the corner.
(Avia)

"Oh my god! Sarah, what's wrong?" I said as I spotted her running towards me with a crushed expression on her face.

"It's nothing. I'm probably being silly." She replied.

"Well we won't know until you tell me. Come on." I coxed gently. Sarah nodded and explained. Slowly I began to see red. I spotted Colin and lost control.
(Avia)

"Can't you control your brother? Could you keep him away from Sarah?" I shouted.

"I..I don't understand. What's happened?" Each reply smacked of apologies and looking back I always feel guilty at lashing out at him.

"Your brother decided to have a go at Sarah. About her glasses, calling her 'ugly' and it's knocked her for six. He doesn't even know her! You keep him away from her! Do you hear me?" I stormed.
(Avia)

"Look I'd no idea he'd do that. I'm sorry, Avia." Colin said holding out his hands as if to protect himself.

"Sorry doesn't cut it. You're only sorry if you can keep him away. If you don't I can't guarantee his life expectancy. I will hunt him down if he does that again. Sarah is my best friend and no one hurts her while I'm on this planet. Understand?"

"Avia! Stop it. I think you're overreacting...It was only a gibe..." Colin said looking genuinely scared. I could feel my cheeks burning with rage, my eyes were contorted into slits and there was probably steam coming out of my ears.
(Avia)

"Now you're defending him? Oh that's so typical of spineless individuals like you."

"I...I..."

"I, I? That's the best you've got? Well here's some advice: don't defend anyone in court any time soon."

"Avia...I..."

"You and your sick brother can get stuffed. I'm going for a run. Sorry Sarah."

I turned and ran putting all my rage that I had felt on Sarah's behalf into gaining speed.
(Colin)

I let her go. Firstly because I didn't want to continue the argument and secondly because I knew for a fact that I wouldn't be able to catch her. Avia pelted up the beach and soon she was little more then a small red dot amongst the dunes. Sarah had dried her tears but still looked shaky.

(Colin)

"I'm sorry about my brother. He's not himself at the moment." I said apologetically. It was a tone that I seemed to use a lot, especially recently. Talk about change the record, Colin!

"Its all right I overreacted. I don't blame you. I'm sorry about Avia too. She's always had a temper on her. She'll calm down soon enough." Sarah said smiling timidly.

"Yes I can see that." I said still looking at the red dot. It had stopped. Maybe she'd calm down. Probably best not poke the bear with a stick...

Sarah started walking back up the beach, "I'm sorry I spoilt your game. You two were getting on very well by the look of you."

"She was shouting at me." I said confused.

"It means that she likes you. It's the extremes of her personality that are dangerous. In fact the quieter she is the more deadly she is." Sarah called.

"I can believe that." I said not wanting to imagine it. Sarah nodded with a small smile and walked away leaving me standing alone on the sand with a battered football and earache.
(Sarah)

Seeing the grief that Avia had given Colin because of me, in turn, had given me my own guilt. Alone in the house I ran myself a bath and looked at the clock in the bathroom. It told me it was three in the afternoon. The day had finally speeded up but had left me with a sour feeling that I had wasted the day. Soon I would be due to start work. I had another month of 'settling in' before last years interns worked their notice before leaving for their first proper jobs. Colin would be the same.

I lowered myself into the bath and removed my glasses and placed them on the window sill. Thoughts washed over me as the water soothed my skin. It had been boiling on the beach but the breeze trickled in through the open window. The raucous calls of the seagulls were comforting and I lent against the back of the bath and began to dream...
