A couple goes skinny dipping, with an unexpected result
Written for a Dialogue 500 prompt to write a dialogue between a man and a woman at the beach.

“Hey, look. Those people are leaving.”


“That means there’s no one around.”

“Yeah. So?”

“So let’s take off our suits and go skinny dipping.”

“I don’t know. What if someone else comes along?”

“What if they do? We’ll just stay in the water. They won’t see anything.”

“But they’ll see our suits.”

“No they won’t. We’ll hide them under our towels.”

“I’m not sure this is a good idea.”

“What’s the matter? Haven’t you ever gone skinny dipping before?”

“Just once, but it was on a private pond. This is a big, public lake.”

“Oh, come on. No one will see us. And the possibility that they might is half the fun.”

“Well, I did kind of like it when I did it before. Okay, let’s do it. But no fair looking until I’m in the water.”

“Aww. What kind of fun is that?”

“If we knew each other, it would be okay. But we just met. In fact, we haven’t really met. I don’t even know your name.”

“But you didn’t seem to mind when I sat down near you. Or when I started talking to you. Anyway, won’t that just add to the adventure?”

“This is weird. But what the hell. I’ll do it, but I’ll do it my way.”

“How’s that?”

“You do whatever you want, but I’m keeping my suit on until we’re both in the water and your suit is on the beach.”

“If you insist. But how are we going to hide our suits if they’re on the beach and we’re in the water?”

“I guess we’re not. I just hope you’re right about no one coming.”

“I’m not worried. Ready?”

“As I’ll ever be.”

“Ready, set, gooooooo.”

“This is nice. I thought it would be colder.”

“Here’s my suit. Now let’s see yours.”

“Give me a sec ... Okay, here it is.”

“Onto the beach. Ready? One, two, three, throw.

“Nice shot. You almost hit your towel.”

“You weren’t too far--Hey. You kids get away from there.”

“They’re taking our suits.”

“I can see that. Stop.

“Oh, great. They’ve got our towels, too.”

“I think we have a problem.”

“Brilliant deduction. This was your idea, so you’d damn well better have a solution.”

“Well, for starters, I’m Jim, and it’s nice to meet you.”
