We’ve been walking for a few days now, hunting game whenever we could. Finding food was getting harder now as the days grew colder. Leaves were falling and occasionally a light rain would pass over. Wear a short shirt and skirt in this weather was rough. Jaden was wearing a pair of short and nothing else. It came down to his knees and was extremely baggy. I don’t know why but I found that extremely attractive.
He would look at me every now and then, but when he did I was looking out the corner of my eye looking at him, admiring him. I would look away from his beautiful body when he looked at me. I would look away, my cheeks redder than cherry blossoms. I didn’t know why I felt like this. I didn’t know what it was called. I was so confused about. I had no idea what was happening to me.
One day we were walking through the forest called the Dark Ark. It was very dark that we had to be extremely close so we wouldn’t get lost from each other. We were halfway through the forest when I realize that I was cold. I looked around to see if he was near me, but he wasn’t. I went into a stage of panic, calling his name, hoping he would hear me. A single tear ran down my cheek. I feel to my knees crying, thinking hr left me alone to die, so he can find his way out and live.
A steady rain began to fall, and a space in the canopy showed the moon in a ring of clouds above. He never came back. I thought of giving up. Thought of just staying there, and drown in the rain, when arms came from behind me holding me around my waist, pulling me close. I felt a slight breathing against my neck, and I was no longer cold. I was warmer than a summer day, but still didn’t know who was behind me. Strong arms pulled me towards the person. I didn’t bother to move. I was scared and hoping whoever it was would kill me.
“Don’t say that” a deep voice said. The voice sounded familiar. Could it be?
“Jaden” I asked him
“Reneelia” he said “I would never do that to you” he lifted his right arm, pulling his left arm across me to the other side of my waist, pulling me closer to him. He caressed my cheek, and made me look at him. In the moon light I saw his beautiful red eyes, as a slight breeze made his hair blow in is face. I felt like I was melting in his arms. I cheeks were bright red, and I tried looking down so he wouldn’t see me. But he lifted my chin up, and looked straight into my eyes. I couldn’t help but look back.
“You’re beautiful” he said. He pulled me as close as he could, caressing my hair. He touched his forehead to mine, and ran his hand down my back. I looked at him, then he looked at the moon. He looked up when I did.
“Beautiful is it not” he asked. I looked at him, and then he looked at me. Before I could say a word he leaned in, touching his lips to mine. Then were soft, perfect, amazing. Are lips fit together perfectly. I closed my eyes, enjoying this moment. We stayed that way for a few minutes, until a slight breeze picked up. I opened my eyes to see he was looking at me. He leaned away.
“What did we just do?” I asked
“We kissed” he said, smiling. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me in for a hug.
“That was…was…” I said stuttering
“Amazing” he said.
“Yes” I laid my head on his shoulder as he rubbed my back. I still kept wondering what this feeling was. I was so confused about this, and I had no idea why he did that.
“Reneelia…I really like you. You’re beautiful, amazing, talented, and just likeme.” He said. He smiled at me. I couldn’t help but smile back. I couldn’t believe that he would like me though. It was unnatural for two anarchy’s to like each other.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yes… your so…different…I don’t think there is another girl like you” he said
“Yeah….An orphaned girl who is an outcast. No friends. No nothing” I said, as my heart started to ache. That was who I was…someone that will never find anyone in the end; alone forever.
