Down In The Sand
Santana: felt the corners of her lips fall into almost a frown. "Are you really gonna do that to yourself? We both know you want to be on that stage more than anything. I know you're nervous and I know you're scared, but you don't have to be. This camp is like a big super supportive family. And it's not even possible for you to be horrible. You're really great, Dani. You're a talented piano player, I bet you're equally as awesome or better on the guitar. Your voice is like comparable to angels singing." She sighed and pursed her lips, keeping her eyes fixated on Dani. "Not to mention you're.. absolutely gorgeous and I really wanna jump you right now.." Her voice went much softer and she bit her lip hard, but she shook her head and smiled again. "That's not the point. Baby, you can do this. I know you can. I believe in you."
Dani: swallowed hard. "I want to be on stage. But I am not even going to compare to you, the other returning campers, or anyone. You're all amazing. I'm not that good, Santana.. I don't feel like I'm really apart of the camp family. I think everyone is great but I still feel on the outs. Maybe it's because my whole life that's where I've been, but.. yeah." She went red when Santana said that she wanted to jump her. "Go ahead." she whispered. She drew swirls in the sand with her finger, and sighed. "I don't know."
Down In The Sand
Santana: leaned back more so she was in a similar position to Dani and she pecked the corner of her lips. The way her heart started beating faster from just the tiniest, simplest kiss was one of the ways she knew this was right. "Yeah, we're a thing. But you're mine and I don't like sharing." She lightly nuzzled Dani's shoulder and completely leaned back in the sand, stretching her legs out. "And you're gonna go great at Final Jam, no matter what you choose to perform. I'll support you one hundred percent."
Dani: frowned at the peck, and leaned in for a real good kiss. When she pulled back, she nodded. "I don't like being shared so I guess that's a good thing." she said. She looked out at the water and sighed. "Would I be allowed to just... not perform? Do you think they'd allow that? I can't do it, I'm going to fuck up and look like an idiot. I don't sing in front of people, Santana.."
Down In The Sand
Santana: shifted and turned a little more, keeping her knees up close to her chest but leaning back on her hands. "I do like you. And I do.. want us to be something. But I'm scared. I've never had the opportunity to be with someone who actually cared about me and wasn't just totally in it for the sex. You're different than anyone I've ever met, anyone I've ever been interested in." She bit her lip and smiled a little wider, shrugging her shoulders slightly. "I can't promise I would be the world's greatest girlfriend but I'll sure as hell try my best."
Dani: blushed a little bit. "You do? San... you don't have to be scared. I don't want to break your heart. I'm not in it for the sex because you deserve more than that." she whispered softly. She shifted a little closer to her, and looked down. "I still can't believe that you are into me. Nobody usually is.." she said. "So does that mean that you and I are... like... a thing?"
Down In The Sand
Santana: kept her eyes focused on Dani and matched her soft smile. "Hi." She breathed and licked her lips, glancing out over the lake. "I wanted to talk to you about something," She wasn't going to beat around the bush about it. Pulling her knees close to her chest and resting her cheek on the top of her knees, she kept her eyes locked on Dani. "About... about us, if we're... an us or something." Normally, she didn't even really talk about these things. Dani made her nervous, good nervous though.
Dani: nodded slowly, and adjusted how she was sitting. She moved to lay on her side, propping herself up slightly with her elbow. "About what?" She listened to Santana, and let out a breath, looking away. "Oh." She didn't know what to say. "I don't know, San. I mean... I like you. I think you like me. What do you want us to be, if anything?" she asked. Ultimately, Santana was going to have to make the call. Dani would love to be with her, but Santana was the one who had to decide if she wanted to be with a girl or not.
Down In The Sand
Santana: pulled her hair into a pony tail and smoothed out her tank top and shorts. She had already showered after her grueling practice with the Unholy Trinity. They were working on their performance for Final Jam already. She wasn't going to hint at it but she really had quite a surprise in store, especially for Dani. She wanted to talk to Dani about how she was feeling about her, about where they stood. She did want more than friendship but she was scared to pursue a relationship. She had been hurt before and she didn't know if she was ready yet. Making her way out towards the sand where she thought she might find Dani. She sat down beside her and nudged her side lightly, settling close beside her. "Hey," She smiled lightly.
Dani: sat on the sand in a black bikini top, and a pair of denim shorts. She had taken a dip in the lake earlier on, and now she was just enjoying the early evening. It was still nice out. Her hair was drying in waves down her back. She was looking forward to seeing Santana. Hearing that the Unholy Trinity was already working on their performance for final jam made her nervous. She knew that she was going to look like a fool against the returning campers, and even some of the other newbies were amazing. She looked over when her side was nudged. "Hey San." she said, smiling softly.
So tired

camptana:

Why are you scared?

Uh huh. Are you.. uh, busy?

Because I’m going to make a fool of myself.

Not really. I’m sitting down in the sand if you want to join me.

So tired

camptana:

If I don’t get the girls into it before August, we won’t be good enough.

So I sorta kinda miss your face. That’s a problem that we should fix.

I’m really scared about Final Jam.

Oh really?

So tired

camptana:

Q, B, and I just rehearsed for like four hours. 

My legs feel like jelly but we’ve finally gotten a routine down for Final Jam.

Right now, I really just wanna take a nap.

Wow, that’s impressive. I don’t even have a song yet.
