“Why something is telling me that you know exactly what happened to my father and the others?” I said while following her. We were walking fast. “Fuck, Bette, don’t run!” I said as I stepped on a brunch and fell face first into the ground.
“Oh, God, are you ok?”
“Does this seem ok?” I raised my head, mud all over my face.
She had to suppress a laugh, “Sorry. It surely doesn’t” she helped me to my feet.
My hands and clothes were dirty, I looked around in search of something to use to get rid of the mud, at least from my face.
“Oh, I could use this plant, maybe” I said, reaching out to a pink plant that had the form of a pitcher, leaking what it looked like water.
“Don’t!” she shouted scaring me. “I’d keep the mud on the face. Unless you prefer bathing with bugs” she explained.
I immediately became pale, “What?”
She took one and ripped it off letting all the content fall. I shrieked, jumping back. “Oh my God!” on the ground there were bugs of all types and dimensions.
“It’s called Nepenthes Bokorensis. It’s a carnivorous plant” she revealed.
“Well, I will think of it as a beauty mask, then”
Chuckling she came close, and started to unfasten her “skirt”.
“What are you doing?” I uttered with my mouth and eyes wide open.
“Not getting naked for sure” she smirked. “I got three layers of skin, one less won’t hurt”
And then she used it to clean me up. Thinking that the piece of garment she was using had been so close to her, made me blush. I squinted my eyes trying to avoid eye contact, hoping it would make the redness on my cheeks disappear.
I’d really rather kept the mud on my face now.
“So, you kissed me” she said out of the blue, while walking.
“Uh?” was the only word I managed to utter as I was out of breath for all the walking.
“Out on the shore, you kissed me” she laughed, “Actually, you almost ravished me”
I blushed, my face was a complete color table with all the shades of red, “Whaa? I didn’t ravish you” it was my time to laugh now. “I don’t know what came up to me” I added with a little voice.
“So cute” she smirked.
“Stop mocking me!” I said punching her arm, though I was amused. The sense of fear and shame slowly dissipating.
“Ouch! You are not supposed to hit people”
“No? And why is that?” I said raising an eyebrow.
“I am the savage one, you come from a big town. You are a lady”
“Oh, believe me I hit just fine when I want to”
“So, are you hitting on me, now?”
That made me blush again. I clenched my lips and smirked, giving her the evil look.
“What?” she laughed. “I couldn’t help it. You served it on a silver plate. Not that I remember how a silver plate looks, but it was served on a plate nonetheless”
At that I laughed out loud. We became quiet again, all the chitchat happened while still walking; we were now closer, side by side, exchanging looks every now and then. Then the thought of my father and the crew came back to me.
“Where are you taking me? Do you know where they are?”
“I’ll explain later”
“God, why don’t you tell me already?” I was getting pissed again.
“Would you just trust me?”
“Trust? I don’t even trust myself, right now!” and it was an understatement. How could I walk with her, think about kissing her, loving her, while my father and the bunch of morons were who knows where? That wasn’t really loyal of me.
“What are you talking about? Should I be scared? You’re going to kill me while I’m asleep?”
I laughed again. “Stop it!”
“Then what is it?”
“I’m enjoying being here with you, without thinking about the others. This is sooo wrong”
She stopped suddenly. I was a few inches behind her, that made me crush into her. She looked at me, her eyes sucking in all my breath “Tina…”
“Wh-” I started to question, but her lips were again pressed on mine.
