“I’m not for them. In fact, I’m very much against them.” He sneezed again and blew his nose in his handkerchief. “Sapphire, why are we here?”

“A vacation.” She continued upon her path and stepped onto the beach. She longed to leave the boardwalk and run through the sand, but it looked loosely packed and would make walking awkward. She inhaled deeply and closed her eyes in contentment. “Smell that sea air, Steel.”
