Beach Party Part 4 (Part 1Part 2, Part 3)

By Tessa Dean March 2020

The sounds of fighting among the teens brought Mr. Rollins downstairs and he admonished them to quiet down and behave or they could all leave right now.

The guys pulled their girls closer and Rhonda Jo just looked at her dad. “By the way, Rhonda Jo, I plan on watching the game in a couple of hours so you will have to move upstairs to the smaller tv set since I intend to watch the game down here.”

“Ok, Dad, no problem. Just let us know when it starts.”

“Hey, Rhonda Jo, when does Winston get back from his family vacation,” Cassandra wanted to know.

“I am not sure, he said they might stay longer and they won’t let him fly home alone since no one is home at his house.”

“Wow that sucks,” Cassandra sympathized with her. This is a lonely summer for you isn’t it?”

“Yes,” Rhonda Jo sat down and drew her knees up to her chin and wrapped her arms around them.

Beach Party Part 3 (Part 1, Part 2)

By Tessa Dean March 2020

Marianne got behind the wheel of her 2020 Chevy Corvette Convertible. It was bright red, just like her hair. Dyed of course. She was born with jet black hair and dyed it bright red. Marianne was their token rich kid. She was spoiled rotten by her divorced parents who were in a contest to beat each other out with who can buy her the most. Charlie climbed in beside her and they were off to Rhonda Jo’s house.

Rhonda Jo, Cassandra and Peter climbed into Peter’s blue 2006 Chevy Pickup Truck. Cassandra was in the middle, next to Peter and Rhonda Jo was on the passenger side. They all had to share the front seat as his truck didn’t have a backseat.

Reaching Rhonda Jo’s they raced into the family room where the huge 105 inch flat screen television was. All the kids liked to watch the television here since it was so large and was hooked up to surround/sound. Rhonda Jo and Cassandra popped up large bowls of popcorn for them to share and they settled down on the large sectional sofa and got comfortable. The monster marathon was just beginning.

Charlie, the monster expert, was immediately engrossed in the move while the others chatted a bit. “Quiet!” he barked out, “I am trying to watch this.”

The others turned and started to watch the movie. It was just getting to a scary part and Cassandra was really jumpy, so when Charlie yelled at her she cowered behind Peter, glaring at Charlie.

Peter turned to Charlie and snarled, “Don’t ever do that to her again, do you hear me? I’ll beat the snot out of you if you do.”

Charlie backed off and now he was the one cowering. Peter could be a real hot head, especially if you messed with his things, including his girlfriend, Cassandra. Marianne shoved Peter and moved close to Charlie. He put his arm around her.

“Yo guys, let’s just watch the movies,” Rhonda Jo said. “If you make too much noise you’ll bring my dad down here and he’ll throw us out.”

Beach Party Part 2 (Part 1)

By Tessa Dean March 2020

Cassandra Jones and Peter Smith were sitting hip to hip, arms wrapped around each other and kissing to the dismay of their friends.

“Hey you two, how about coming up for some air,” Marianne Lewis made a face at them. She gave Peter a punch. “Give us a break will ya?”

Charlie Morgan looked at them dead faced and said, “I know what bung means.”

“Eeww,” the girls said in unison. “How disgusting.”

“No, I mean there is another meaning for it.”

“Who cares, man,” Peter mumbled and went back to kissing Cassandra.

“Listen,” Charlie pleaded with them, “It means bribe in British slang.”

They all looked at him as if he was crazy. Charlie was always looking up new words and this wasn’t the first time he had come up with something off the wall that none of them cared a wit about.

“Hey,” Rhonda Jo Rollins called out. “Do you wanna go home and watch a monster movie. There is a marathon tonight and they are playing a lot of great movies.”

Marianne said sure and poked Cassandra and Peter and told them to start packing it up for the day. They were heading out to watch a monster marathon on Rhonda Jo’s big screen television.

Beach Party

By Tessa Dean March 2020

Hopping back and forth from one bare foot to the other, Cassandra raced across the hot sand towards the boardwalk. Her friends trailed behind her as they had the sense to put their flip flops on before stepping on to the hot sand. Reaching the boardwalk, she climbed the steps, out of breath, and flopped onto a bench by the opening.

“Why didn’t you put your shoes on, silly. That sand is hot!” Peter smacked her on the top of her head.

“Hey! That hurt!” She smacked him back.

“Hey that was a lot harder than I hit you.” He smacked her back and she pulled him down onto the bench with her and gave him a kiss.

“All is forgiven?” she asked rather coyly.

“All is forgiven,” and he kissed her back, slowly lengthening the kiss.

Thomas and Ginny had gotten up early and gone to meet the realtor first thing in the morning. It was so early, the birds were still singing in the trees.

Ginny didn’t want to outlive her stay with the Banks and she had a house of her own which she didn’t want to live in. She told Thomas she wanted to sell it and with the down payment from her mom’s trust fund they should be able to find a nice starter house. They only needed two bedrooms to start. After the 2nd child was born, unless it was a different sex, they could share a room.

The realtor had brought them out to see a modern two bedroom bungalow. It was surrounded by a nice yard with lots of trees. It would be the perfect starter home. With the money from the sale of her house and the downpayment from her trust fund, they ended up with a small monthly, affordable mortgage. Ginny would start living in it right away and once married Thomas would move in to stay.

There were no overnight stays and they both held true to their celibacy vows. Thomas came over when he was not working or going to school and he would do small repairs around the house until Ginny came home, whether it was from school or work. They didn’t spend too much time alone there together because it was too tempting to forget their vows of celibacy.

Ginny, with the help of Mrs. Banks, continued with the wedding plans. Mrs. Banks became her mother in real life in all ways possible. Ginny splurged on the gown she wanted. The lawyer, Mr. Zimmerman walked Ginny down the aisle to a very excited Thomas. The priest pronounced them Man and Wife and they had their very first deep kiss as husband and wife and both were very excited to leave for their honeymoon in the Bahamas.

The reception was held at the restaurant that both Mrs. Banks and Ginny worked at. Their boss gave them a discount.

The honeymoon at a plush tropical resort was everything they could have hoped for and there they finally lost their virginity. They arrived home with smiles on their faces. Life returned to normal. Almost!

Nine months later Suzanna Amelia Banks arrived.

Ginny’s clock radio went off and she stretched out under her sheets and blankets. She was staying at the Banks’s house for now and she had decisions to make. The Banks had been kind enough to let her stay on their couch for the last few weeks since her mom passed away, but she couldn’t stay here forever It wasn’t fair to them either. She had a house that was hers although she was all alone in it. She was a grownup now and had to start acting like one.

She returned to school yesterday and was told that she needed to find a second year student to be her mentor. Most of the nurses had already paired up. She took the list of names of the second year nurses who still needed partners. The only one she knew was Georgeanna Constantine. She actually lived not too far from Ginny. Maybe she still needed a junior partner.

She called the number and a male’s voice answered. “Um,” Ginny stuttered, “I am looking for Georgeanna Constantine.”

“Damn that school,” the male voice exploded. “My name is George Constantine. Someone keeps adding the Anna on it and I think they do it for fun. I am sorry if you are looking for a woman, I am definitely not one.”

“Oh, my God, I am so sorry. The paper says Georgeanna Constantine and I just assumed you were a woman. My name is Ginny Carpenter and I am a first year nurse and I was told I needed to get a second year nurse as a mentor. There are only a couple of names on here and the address is near mine and I thought I knew you, but boy was I wrong. I, ah, well do you still need a first year nurse to mentor?”

“Sure, Ginny, but will your boyfriend mind?”

“I don’t think so, George. I am sure he trusts me. Will your girlfriend mind?”

“Honey, my wife won’t mind as long as you behave yourself,” George was laughing so loud that she took the phone away from her ear.

“Uh, George, ok thanks. My phone number should be on the list. I am not really sure how this mentoring program works.”

“Basically if you have any questions and I can answer them, I will, otherwise just try to do what I do if you are unsure of something.”

“Thanks, George. Oh by the way, are we supposed to meet or anything?”

“Once a week, we’ll get lunch and talk about whatever might be troubling you about the nursing classes. Write down any questions that can wait. Otherwise you can call me if you need to. You have my number. Bye bye!”

Ginny stared at the silent phone in her hand. I can hardly wait.

Suddenly Ginny did a doubletake and almost pushed Thomas aside in her haste. “Mr. Zimmerman, I almost forgot. I pushed the whole matter of her funeral into the background. I don’t know anything about funerals or the first thing that I have to do about setting hers up. Can you help me?”

“Well Ginny, luckily your mother planned and prepaid for her funeral while she was still working. She didn’t want to have you worrying about it when her time came although none of us expected it to be so soon. So here is the contact information for Lawrence Funeral Home here in Angel’s Cove. Call them and they will take you through the steps. Just let me know when and where you are having a memorial service for her or just the funeral. Here’s my card with my personal cell phone number on it. Call me anytime and for anything. I am always here for you Ginny.”

Ginny took the card and fitted it into its own slot in her purse to keep it handy. She felt a kinship with Mr. Zimmerman and if he was telling her the truth he would have been her step dad and adoptive dad if it could be arranged. She had no reason to suspect he was lying to her and she felt grateful for everything he had done for her mom and her.

“Oh Mr. Zimmerman, aside from the death of my mother, my wishes have been granted. I will miss her dearly and am very sorry she will not be able to be at my wedding, but I knew deep down, she wouldn’t have been there anyhow. She couldn’t remember most of what I told her and some days she even forgot I was getting married and at the end there, well some days she simply didn’t know who I was. It was heartbreaking to watch.”

Thomas said, “There were many days Ginny arrived at my house crying after spending time with her mother. She wanted her opinion on things about the wedding, but her mother wasn’t able to even remember she was getting married. I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been. She was trying to see if her mother could help us with the expenses of the wedding, but we couldn’t get a straight answer from her and she never mentioned the trust funds.”

“Well son, there were medical reasons for that and I know before the stroke she talked about Ginny’s wedding a lot. Especially when we were starting to plan ours. I know she didn’t tell you Ginny because she thought you were still too young. No one expected the first stroke and at such a young age. After the stroke, I just canceled all of her plans. I knew she wasn’t going to be up to marrying me. If she would have let me I would have been happy with a justice of the peace wedding ceremony and be content to live with her as her husband to the end, but she was already at a point that she wasn’t considered of sound mind to give her consent to a marriage and I wasn’t going to push it. I just determined to do my best for the both of you as if I had married her. I hope you are not offended Ginny. I didn’t feel it was my place to tell you anything when your mother may say something either way and I didn’t want to confuse her anymore than she was. Some days she didn’t remember me either, but when she was lucid I was here for her. Like I said, all of this was done on those days and with the nurse, who I hired myself, as the witness.”

Ginny was silent for a moment, “This may sound bad, but I was jealous of my friends and their families. Except for one, they all had their mothers and then while we were saving for our wedding and I had to stop buying unnecessary clothes I was in a constant state of jealousy of my friends and their clothes. Does that make me a bad person?”

“Of course not, Ginny,” both Mr. Zimmerman and Thomas said together.

“Honey you are a teenaged girl. That is perfectly normal,” the lawyer said.

“Actually I am 20 now, but close enough I suppose.”

“Darling you will always be perfect to me,” Thomas smiled tenderly at her, putting his arm around her to hug her close to him.

“Ok so Ginny, your story can have a partial happy ending. You may not believe this, but your mother has been saving for your wedding and college costs ever since you were born. She worked for me as my number one lawyer and I helped her to set up trust funds to pay for your wedding and schooling. She never wasted a cent she didn’t have to. We realized we loved each other despite the difference in our ages and were planning our own wedding when the first stroke hit your mother taking a lot of her memory. I convinced the hospital that she could be taken care of at home with 24 hour around the clock nurses and housekeeping, plus someone to care for Ginny who was at a young age and still needed the guidance of her mother. That was when the nanny was hired to take care of you, Ginny. She took care of you and made sure you were regularly spending time with Caroline. When you turned 18 there was no legal reason for a nanny and you were on your own and used to taking care of things for your mother and spending time with her. The nanny made sure you understood about the stroke and her memory problems. Despite all of this you turned into a very beautiful, self-assured young woman. Caroline told me that you had pledged to her that you would remain a virgin until you were married and I know it’s not any of my business and may sound a little cold, but have you and Mr. Banks here had sexual intercourse? Or anyone else for that matter?”

Ginny flushed and glanced at Thomas, “Mr. Zimmerman, I meant what I told my mother and Thomas here also agrees that we should remain virgins until our wedding night. The most we have done is kiss occasionally and hug or snuggle a bit. His Dad and Mom said that was fine as long as it didn’t lead to sexual intercourse, which we have not allowed to happen. We are both still virgins. We have never seen each other naked or touched each other in a sexual way. This is kind of embarrassing, sir.”

“I won’t bring it up again Ginny, but I am glad to hear that you had held true on your promise to your mother. She meant a lot to me and so did you over the years. I was hoping to marry her and adopting you, but since your father wouldn’t even sign the divorce papers we were pretty sure he wouldn’t give up his connection to you even though he wanted nothing to do with you as a young child. As an adult he might very well try to connect and get money out of you and you have to be very wary of him. Do not let him back into your life and let me know immediately if you hear from him. Promise me this!”

“Don’t worry, I will make sure she is safe from him, sir,” Thomas promised boldly. “She will be my wife and taken care of properly. I will do my best to keep her safe from everyone and everything that could hurt her.”

“Ok great! So down to business. As far as the nurses go, I paid for them. She thought she was still working for me and I was taking the expense out of her paycheck. In the beginning she could still handle a few simple things, but for the most part her brain was too damaged. I did this out of love for her and I mean it when I say you are not to even think about trying to pay me back. If we had been married before the stroke I would have done the same thing. Now on to the trust funds. When she first started to work for me she set these trust funds up for you to have once she had passed away or when you turned 25 years old. She added to them every paycheck without fail. She had worked for me about 15 years when she had the first stroke. That was about 4 or so years ago now. I continued to add to the trust funds because I know she would have done that had we gotten married and even though we hadn’t, I still loved her and continued her wishes. You have $20,000 towards school and $20,000 towards your wedding.”

Thomas and Ginny stopped cold and just stared at each other. “You mean my mother put this money away for me and now I can, after proper mourning, have the wedding of my dreams? I got a scholarship to school so what happens to that trust fund?”

“It’s just turned over to you to use as you see fit. $40,000 would give you a great wedding and this house the rest of the funds would make a great down payment on your own house.”

Ginny reached out and hugged the lawyer. “I can’t believe this is happening.” She turned to Thomas and hugged him, tears streaming down her face. “My mother made it possible for us to have a great wedding and a home as well. I can’t wait to tell everyone.”
