Warm, salty air flowed around as a small boat towed a water skier around. It was a beautiful summer day, a small group of friends were making the most of it. None of them were particularly talented at the sport, but they all found it fun, and they all had a playful laugh when one of them would lose their grip and splashed into the water.
And though she found the activity amusing, Katherine didn’t necessary want to take part. It wasn’t that she was scared of the water, or inexperienced at water skiing. Her real problem was that she did not know they were going to be doing that today. If she did, she would have chosen a better swimsuit.
What she currently had was better for tanning rather than actual swimming. She was wearing a bright red string bikini that tied at the sides. While it was comfortable, Katherine was always a little bit concerned that they may come untied at an inappropriate moment. Her bikini top felt like it had similar integrity. She hadn’t even trusted this swimsuit to a proper swim at the beach yet.
“Kath, you gotta try this out!” One of her friends chuckled.
“Yeah, it’s so much fun!” Added another.
Katherine hesitated. “Well, I dunno…” She kicked her feet as she sat atop the seat on the boat. If she didn’t know how her suit would hold against a regular swim, she couldn’t imagine it doing well while waterskiing.
Clearly, her friends were displeased. “Kath-y! Kath-y! Kath-y!” They began a chant.
The peer pressure was pouring on. Katherine didn’t want to take any unnecessary chances with her swimsuit, though her friends weren’t letting up. She was quickly becoming the center of attention, which was a position that often made her feel uneasy.
“Alright, alright! I’ll do it!” Katherine submitted with a feigned playful laugh. “Give me the thing,” she said, waving her hand at the handle of cable.
“Whoa whoa whoa,” said one of her friends. “Safety first,” they said with a chuckle, presenting her with a life jacket.
Katherine smiled and picked up the life jacket, and tried to slide her arms through it, before pulling it over her head. It was a tight squeeze over her breasts, but with some work, she was able to get it to fit. Something felt off with her bikini top though, as if it didn’t fit correctly with the life jacket.
She soon realized that it was because the jacket was so tight, that it moved her bikini top from it’s proper place. Thanks to the life jacket, her friends weren’t able to tell, but if she had to take the life jacket off, her breasts were very likely to be exposed!
“Alright Kath, hang on to this tight. You’re gonna try it barefoot, which means I’ll have to gun it hard,” said one of her friends at the controls of the boat.
Katherine nodded, taking the handle of the cable and gripping it tight. She climbed over the end of the boat and into the water with a splash. The water was a bit cooler than she expected, which earned a gasp of surprise. The life jacked lunged her to the top of the water, and she held onto the cable.
She moved a hand to inspect the knots of her bikini bottom. They seemed to be still there, but something wasn’t right. Like they shouldn’t be as tight as they needed to be.
“Alright, you ready Kath?” Said her friend at the controls.
Katherine wanted to shout ‘no’ so she could fix her bikini bottom, but she didn’t want to admit to possibly having a wardrobe malfunction. She would just have to hope the bikini bottom would hold.
“Y-yeah! Ready!” Katherine shouted in a feigned excitement.
She gripped the handle tightly as the boat motor began to hum to life, starting to pull her. Katherine cringed and blushed, feeling the water start to rush over her skin, faster and faster. It was getting difficult to tell where the water was directly touching her skin and where it wasn’t.
As the boat increased in speed, Katherine began to rise out of the water, being lifted up. Before long, she was properly barefoot skiing. Having the wind whip over her skin was an exciting feeling, and the sheer speed of the boat was giving her an adrenaline rush.
She glanced down, and to her surprise, her bikini bottom held firm. It was a quick glance, as she had to focus on maintaining her balance, but all seemed well for her wardrobe. Katherine smiled as she glided over the water.
Her friends cheered, as she skiid over the ocean waters near the beach. The knots of the bikini bottom must have been more well tied than she thought. Katherine even felt confident enough to attempt a few tricks in the water.
However, something soon began to feel amiss with her bikini bottom. Katherine glanced down, noticing that the knots started to loosen.
“Oh no!” Katherine was alarmed. She tried not to change her stance to much out of fear that it might hasten the process. In alarm, she began to wave at her friends to try and get them to slow down.
“I think Kath’s waving for you to speed up!”
“Alright, hold onto your hats!”
The boat motor gave a proud roar as it sped up, tugging Katherine along even faster.
“Oh no!” Katherine gasped. At this quicker speed, she couldn’t even lower a hand to try and protect her bikini bottom, or else she would lose her grip on the handle. Still, the strings slowly began to feel more and more loose.
Things were quickly getting bad, as she tried to bring her legs together, in an effort to possibly clamp her bikini between her legs. However, just attempting that made her stance unsteady. Did she dare to let go?
Katherine didn’t get a chance to answer that question. The knots came undone, and the bikini bottom fluttered free from her body to be claimed by the water. She was bottomless now!
Upon realizing this, Katherine blushed a deep shade of red and clamped her legs tightly together. She lost her grip on the handle and fell into the water. The life jacket forced her back up to the surface with no trouble, but she had to count on the water to keep her bottom half hidden.
Katherine looked back for her missing swimsuit half, but there was no sign of it. She couldn’t see it at all, it was as if it just disappeared. She was half-naked, and her friends were turning the boat around to come get her right now!
What would she do? How would she explain this? She didn’t want her friends seeing such intimate areas!
The boat approached, as her friends were laughing.
“Wow Kath, that was quite the wipeout! Come on back in!”
Katherine hesitated, blushing. Did they not see her lose her swimsuit yet? Maybe there was a way out of this yet.
“Um… actually, you know what, the water feels nice. I think I’m gonna swim for a bit!” Katherine said.
Her friends collectively shrugged. “Suit yourself, but can you toss the life jacket back?”
Now this was a problem. The top of her bikini didn’t feel like it was sitting right under the life jacket. However, it was a risk Katherine would have to take to try reaching the beach.
“S-sure!” Katherine said, trying to push the life jacket up over her head. She attempted to do this slowly, so the bikini top wouldn’t fall off her body either. However, the life jacket was tight over her breasts. Getting it off over her head required an alarmingly firm tug, but she did it anyway to quickly get her friends away.
Finally, the life jacket slid free over her her head. Only she couldn’t feel her bikini top. It was like it was gone, Katherine’s swimsuit had completely disappeared, lost to the ocean water.
Her friends snatched the life jacket from her hands, as they moved down to cover her exposed breasts.
“Thanks Kath! We’ll meet you back up by the docks!”
“S-sure!” Katherine said with a fake smile, as the boat sped away, taking away the only cover the girl had.
She turned and faced the beach, treading water. Katherine was completely naked, and somehow she was going to have to make it back to the docks. Her heart thumped away, as she was unsure what she could even do.
