Just The Both Of Us


Now this is just great. One, we're on the lookout from the rest of my kind who are practically trying to suck this planet of it's resouces while simultaneously trying to kill me. And now, the Go-something that Elia just told me about has taken her family.

Sighing, I pushed away the tension in my mind and tried relaxing as I gave Elia a reassuring smile. She still looked shaken after what had happened, and frankly, I was as well after seeing that wolf. But it wasn't a wolf. It was a wolf of the Oterium kind.

Shaking my head to myself, I decided not to get myself confused further. Elia handed me a stick and I looked at it curiously. Small round shaped fruits, identical to berries, were skewered onto it. Elia watched me, waiting for me to taste it and so I did.

Chewing slowly, the juices of the berry released on my tongue. It was sweet, like sugar but in a more concentrated way. Savoring the taste, I smiled at Elia and nodded.

"It's great, I love it."

She smiled back, watching me eat and made sure I was okay before taking a bite out of her meal as well.

In case you're wondering, the reason why it's much sweeter than what I presume you humans eat is because it boosts our energy. Sugar keeps us hype.

I grinned at her, knowing this would have the same effect on me. We ate a few more that she had prepared before withdrawing to our little tent. It was rather small but comfortable underneath the rock tent.

The soil of the ground was cool underneath us, and almost like a layer of a blanket as it seemed to keep us warm against the cool night. But I couldn't help but notice that Elia was keeping her distance. She had her back turned to me, lying down facing the otherside.

Was she still angry at me?

I moved closer to her but just as I did, she turned back and bumped straight into my chest.

Sorry, she stuttered but before she could argue, I put my arm around her waist, pulling her close to me.

"Don't be."

This is the way I wanted her. No fights. No race for survival.

Just the both of us.


The End
