i wanted to dedicate this chapter to miss_cupcake101 for improving my cover :)
One aspect I loathe of the forest is the darkness, you can barely see anything, it’s like you have to depend on your other senses, and one thing I know for sure is that it’s very infuriating for me, that is. The whole atmosphere was no different from coal; the canopy of the trees deteriorated the dark situation. You know, some people say the moon is what gives you light in the night; conversely, no light penetrates through this forest. The noises I’m hearing were scaring the crap out of me, the croaking of frogs to begin with, they croak deeply and then they halt all of a sudden; as if purposely leaving an eerie tension in the atmosphere, to frighten me .Chirping crickets seem to be coming from all different quarters, sealing in on me.I try to close my eyes shut really tight, it doesn’t work.
Everyone seems to be asleep, although I can’t see anybody, I can sense no movement from them, meaning they are all asleep, right?
As if reading my mind, “Destiny, are you still awake?” a curious voice said in the distance.
“Holy cow, whoever is there, never, I mean never scare me like that ever again “I state horrified. I put a hand on my chest, calming my pounding heart down, while I sat up nervously, gawping around like a maniac.
My eyes strained to get a better view of the persons face. ”Don’t worry destiny, it’s only me”.
I breathe in deeply, still affected by that encounter we just had. ”Asher? Why are you still awake?” I whispered, realising the others were still fast asleep, I could never sleep with all these noises of insects buzzing around casually.
“Just looking around for any danger, plus with all these noises going on, I couldn’t sleep”. I nodded, understanding what he exactly meant. I go back to when we were molests by that huge beast, Asher actually saved me-no I’m not saying he is like ‘my hero’ but it was very courageous of him to stand up to an animal three times the size of him.
“You know it was very brave of you to attack the bear and saving me “I cut the awkward silence between us.
“Serious, it was nothing; a strong man like me should be able to fight of a bear”
Even though I couldn’t see his face properly, a mental image pops up in my head of Asher wearing his signature smirk.
“Well you sure didn’t act like a strong man when I punched you yesterday” I replied smugly.
“Shut up, well you punch like a man”, he sneered.
“I swear you said that already”.
“Well I still think you punch like a man”
“I’m I supposed to be offended?”
It looked like he shrugged his shoulders. ”It wasn’t a compliment either” he finished off. I narrowed my eyes and said “well, why would I want to expect a compliment from you anyways”. I turned around and laid on my back, every time we talk, we always seem to get into a stupid argument; I remembered the first time we both got thrown in the cellar, when we nearly kissed, oh god destiny what were you thinking? I slapped myself lightly on the head to stop those mental images coming up.
Those stupid frogs were making the sudden noises again. I could see some light coming through, which meant morning is close. I still can’t believe I have not slept throughout the night. I felt someone stirring next to me and realised it was Emily.
“Morning Emily” I smiled.
