Blazer went to the big lake outside of town, because it was a hot day and the beach was crowded as usual. Blazer wore his favorite swimsuit, a pair of black shorts with red flames. He was swimming in the lake with Benny. She wore the Red two piece bathing suit Sis gave her when they went to the beach. Sis was lying on her beach towel sunning. She was getting stares and whistles from the teen age boys who didn’t realize she was only eleven years old.
Sis decided to get up and give these obnoxious boys something to really look at. Sis stood up and slowly walked to the pier. The boys stared at her shiny white fur, or was it her blue two piece swimsuit they were looking at? Sis held onto the rail and removed her sandals, kicking them back onto the sand. She turned her head and winked in the directions of the boys. Then, she walked out to the edge and took a diving position. Sis raised her arms and jumped off. Hitting the deep water with almost no splash. She swam to the surface. The water sparkled on her wet fur. She walked out of the water and noticed everyone looking at her. Sis didn’t notice her top had come partially off!
Benny and Blazer were swimming in the water and watched Sis move quickly back to her towel and fix her swimsuit. Benny swam over to him.”Hey Blazer!” Benny said ” Let’s have a swim race across the lake.” Okay,” he said ” And the loser buys ice cream.” “Deal,” She said shaking his hand. The rabbits used an un crowded area for their race and asked the female life guard to help start the race. She agreed, and used her white shirt as a starting flag. “Swimmers, take your mark,” the rabbits placed their hands on their knees. “The lifeguard raced her flag. “Go!” she called. Blazer and Benny dove into the water. the kids on shore were watching and cheering.
Benny was ahead and moving fast, until Blazer caught up with her at the turn. and beat her to the finish. Everyone gathered around him and congratulated the boy. “Great race.” Benny said giving him a kiss on the cheek, which made him blush. The two friends went to the ice cream stand. Blazer ordered a Hot Fudge Sundae and Benny had a Chocolate Milkshake. The two started to walk back to the beach, when a young woman wearing a school swimsuit and a whistle around her neck came over to Blazer. ” great race.” she said holding out her hand” Thank you,” Blazer said. She looked at the boy and asked ” Did you ever consider joining the swim team?” she asked. Blazer’s eyes opened wide. ” Yes,” he said ” But, I never thought I was good enough.” The woman laughed ” I saw how fast you were in the water,” she said ” And I timed both of you,”
The woman took a large yellow envelope from her bag ” Have your parents or guardian fill out these forms and bring them to the pool for tomorrows practice.” Blazer took the envelope. “See you at practice tomorrow,” the woman said. She waved her hand and went back to thebeach. “Cool,” Benny said ” You made the swim team.” Benny hugged Blazer.
