Good Things Come To Those Who Wait//PenzaiPenny: digs her toes into the sand, trading between reading the book in her lap and watching the people that play in the surf, finally pulling her feet up beneath her long skirt and laying back in her chair. Comfortable in the shade of the umbrella that covers most of her body.
Zai: has been wandering. He has his bag tossed over his shoulder and he looks tired. He sees someone in the chair and walks over, planning in asking if she's seen penny "excuse me have you..., well hell-oh"
Penny: ignored the steps that had been walking towards her, the beaches always busy during the days with people walking back and forth. Only looking up when she realizes she recognizes the voice that speaks, her face splitting into a smile as she looks towards him, the sun behind Zai's head. Quick to get on her feet and hug him, pulling away self-consciously a second later and tugging down on her short shirt without thinking. "You made it!" She says excitedly before concern sets in, "You look exhausted. Come on, sit down."
Zai: laughs as he's attacked with love then stares at her a moment before pulling her back and kissing her head. "would never miss your birthday penny" he nods and sinks to the sand, looking out at the water.
