There wasn’t very late, indeed it was around 7 pm, but the sky was already dark and cold; Tina helped Bette to lie in the sleeping bag, then she leaned beside her, she opened her coat that covered her sleeping clothes and closing the zipper of the sleeping bag, hugged and spooned her girlfriend. The brunette turned around toward Tina and also opened her coat to intensify the contact and share the heat of their bodies.
Tina: “are you feeling better?”
Bette: “yes… much better, it’s like a flow of energy comes from your body to mine, as if life is returning to me, I feel my soul in peace when we are together…, I missed you.”
Tina: “I feel peace too, baby… we have to talk but not now, I want you to sleep and when you are rested I want to tell you something.”
Bette: (worried) “what?”
Tina: “oh…, don’t be scared, nothing bad on the contrary…, I…, I just want your forgiveness…, and perhaps something else.”
Bette: “honey…, I’m the one who needs to be forgiven…, I was an asshole…”
Tina: “shush…, don’t talk…, you need to rest; (caressing Bette’s locks on her temple and pecking her face) we’ll talk later.”
The girls slept tight for few hours until the growl of a wild animal woke them up, the fire was already extinguished and the place was dark. Tina cautiously moved her arm out of the sleeping bag and took the flashlight pointing everywhere, seeing no animal around. Slowly she opened the bag and rummaging in her backpack extracted a tranquilizer gun and another flashlight and handed them to Bette.
Tina: “take these, and watch while I’m going to revive the fire.”
Bette: “okay but if you are searching for firewood I’ll go with you.”
Tina: “it’s not needed; there are small logs and branches everywhere.”
Bette: “I think we need another fire.”
Tina: (smiling) “what do you mean?”
Bette: “on the other side of the sleeping bag.”
Tina: (a little disappointed) “oh…, okay, I’ll make another one.”
Bette: “I’ll help you…”
It took only a few minutes to set the new fire and to revive the old one. It was very cold, so they warmed more chocolate milk, the only packed liquid they have in their backpacks and ate some nut bars.
