Sophie sat in the sand, the afternoon sun beaming down on her as small waves lapped up just to where she was sitting. She was perfecting her surprisingly large sandcastle, glad that high tide had already passed.

"Thats a work of art that is." Joey said astounded at the size and intricacy of the castle. He assumed it would have required a vast amount of patience. And it would be gone tomorrow. He couldn't fathom how someone could spend so much effort on something that would be destroyed within 24 hours. "How long has that taken you?"

"It is very pretty."Joey said getting down on his knees next to her to examine it more closely. It had been carved out and designed down to a tee. "Thats amazing." he said still in slight disbelief. "And no magic?"

"No magic." Sophie assured him. "That would be cheating." she carved out a bit of vine going up the side of a tower. "Used to make these when I was a kid, before I knew I was a witch." she said still focusing intently on the vine. "We used to live down by the shore."

Joey watched, transfixed in his spot by the perfection of every little detail. "Well it payed off, this is unbelievable." He tore his eyes away from the castle to look at her, and became just as hypnotized by her as her work.

"Thats okay." Sophie said indifferently. "It'll be nice to have the company," she continued to perfect her tower feeling like a little kid again. "You lived near the beach too?" she asked after a few moments of silence.

Sophie positively squeeked with excitement. "Oh Joey i'm so excited now." she said clapping her hands together, feeling even more childish. She flung her arms around his neck and hugged him. "Thank you." she said beaming.
