Now you may be wondering, who was wearing the bolo tie? Me or the shark? Answer: YES!

Steve turned without reluctance to face the arriving pair. Actually, he couldn't resist a quick double take, as if he'd forgotten to jot some feature down in his memory. But in truth, the sea was too slippery to really hold his gaze. It felt nice to stare off into something so blank and expansive and representative of home and freedom or whatever, but the characters were all a bit familiar and the plot left something to be desired.

He turned, anyways, and his bag swung around his body with a little more gravity than he found comfortable. It never stopped with the reminders, though he supposed there was something to be said about being a little less coy about it when his companion had half a cafeteria worth of room-clearing at his fingertips.

"I-" he said at the greeting left between them, and Brad snatched it up and fielded it. There was an unexpected pang there. Things were moving already. If he didn't find himself, get on with whatever the something was that he was going to do, he might never hit that stride. Momentum was something that seemed important, and it might be the difference between the sudden crowd pushing him forward or leaving him face-down in the dust.

"Yeah," he added, clearing his throat, boosting his signal against the interfering waves. "We're cool. Nobody's that crazy."

"Yet."
