A couple of blocks before we got home, Sarah hopped up onto the smooth white marble surrounding a fountain decorated with leaping fish and swirling carvings. She tugged on our hands, and after a minute, Joelle followed her up. Laughing, I stayed on the ground.
“What are you doing?”
Sarah twirled carefully on the wet stone. “Enjoying myself. What are you doing, Camie?”
“Come on, Camie, the water’s fine!” Joelle laughed.
“I don’t want to find out how the water is!”
Sarah leaned forward. “It won’t kill you to have a little fun.”
She was right. Trying to ignore the stares of the people on the street around us, I scrambled up onto the fountain beside the girls. Sarah flung her arm across my shoulders, and I giggled self-consciously. “Everyone’s staring.”
“So what?” Sarah dropped her hands and did a little shimmy with her hips. “When will you ever have the chance to dance on a fountain in Italy?”
“To dance sober on a fountain in Italy?” Joelle added with a laugh, shaking her short hair to an invisible beat.
I laughed. “Fair point.” I moved my hips carefully, trying to keep my balance. “I just don’t want to go for a late-night swim.”
“We’re way too cool for that,” Sarah said, stepping away from me and flinging her arms wide. “Watch!” She started to twirl, and Joelle and I ducked out of the way of her spinning arms, laughing. We were still laughing when Sarah’s foot slipped and she sailed backward, her hands grasping at the empty air before we had a chance to react.
She landed in the shallow water with a splash, and for a minute, Joelle and I froze. “Oh my God, are you okay?” I leaned in, reaching my hand toward her to fish her out, but Sarah just started to laugh. Tears were streaming down her face as she pushed herself to her feet, rubbing her tailbone ruefully, but she didn’t stop laughing. Joelle reached for her other arm, and a wicked glint flashed across Sarah’s eyes. Before I could react, she’d tugged us both into the fountain with her.
Water shot up my nose as we landed in a heap on top of Sarah, but instead of being angry, I started to giggle. Flicking water at the girls, I struggled to stand up, but my feet slipped out from under me and I crashed into the water again.
“This is ridiculous,” Joelle managed to squeeze out between laughs. “You two are crazy, you know that?”
Nearly hysterical, the three of us finally made it to our feet and climbed out of the fountain. Sarah hiccupped. “Now that,” she said in between gulps for air, “was fun!”
