From one of her room's windows, Lyla had watched a car pull up to the summer villa, and it didn't take a genius to guess that it belonged to the two nannies who were staying with them this Summer. It occurs to her, quite immediately, that this is in fact a perfect opportunity. Everyone will probably be distracted by the arrival of the women, and if they aren't distracted by the nannies it will be because something else is capturing their attention. Either way, people won't be paying much attention to anything at all, she supposes.

Were she a better person, Lyla would think more before leaving the house. After all, she had already told Ella that she'd take her shopping, and the younger girl is probably anticipating it. But this is easier, and Lyla has been known to take easier routes when the mood hits her. In this situation, the lull of the ocean waves and the warmth pulls her to be lazy, and choose the easy way out. Perhaps some part of her also wants to actively let down Ella, so she'll stop idolizing her, but it is unlikely that she would even be conscious of this. Instead, without too much thought, she slips out one of the back doors that are near her first-floor bedroom, and walks away from the villa, down onto the beach. Of course, she makes sure to grab a towel and pair of sunglasses on her way out, planning on sunbathing, or maybe finding a crowd to easily involve herself in. She's always been the sort of person who can easily become part of a group without anyone batting too much of an eye. She may lack her brother and parents' drive and motivation, but she has without a doubt inherited the family charisma.

Once she is out of view of the Villa, or at least in a location where she no longer can see the large summer residence, Lyla lays down her towel, and then stretches out on it. The warm sun and ocean breeze make the weather absolutely perfect for the sunshine-loving girl, and had she not just woken up, she would probably fall asleep in the sun. Instead, she plugs into music and decides to relax for a few moments before finding something more interesting to do. Her personality prevents her from being able to just sit around in the sun doing nothing for too long, after all. Rather, she can take short intervals. It is a contrast to her sleeping schedule, which avoids naps and yet can stretch one sleep for far beyond the normal limit on slumbering.
