Kate tossed the tennis ball into the air and shot it across the court. After she'd beaten her third opponent, she noticed Lucy had arrived at the side of the court. She held up her digital camera and snapped a photo as Kate hurried over, her body glistening with sweat. "I love it when you sneak up on me, Lucy."
"I got off a few hours early, felt like working out after sitting at my desk all day. I brought my tennis stuff, if you fancy a game," she said.
"With you, always," Kate said. The snake dried herself with a towel and waited for Lucy to get changed. A few minutes later she returned in a cute tennis outfit that like Lucy was always more conservative than Kate's. She winked. "I can't wait to see you bounce."
"Don't you mean the ball?" she asked.
"I always love seeing balls bounce."
"You had to make it weird," Lucy replied.
Kate flicked her tongue in amusement. "You make it so easy."
Lucy gave a fake sigh of exasperation and jogged over to the court.
