As I opened my eyes, I saw something in the water. I felt the goose bumps crawling in my body. The most striking, attractive and alluring creature that ever existed was just in front of me. It was looking at me as well, astonished just the way I do. Her eyes were the most gorgeous eyes anything can have. Green, just like the sheep has, mystifying set of green eyes. Her skin was so white like ivory. Her hair touches her bosoms, it’s as black as ebony and it looks so shiny and like the water, it made my eyes sparkle. I can’t take my eyes off of her. She was holding the sheep. As I see it, the sheep was her pet. She was stroking the wool of the sheep and it looks so wonderful. Every move she makes was something for me.

My body won’t move even if I wanted to. I froze as she walked gracefully towards me. She touched my face and run her fingers through it. Her skin was as white as ivory and as smooth as silk. Her scent was intoxicating. Then while my mind is floating in mid air, she held my hand and put it in her chest. As I understand it, she wants me to feel her heart beat. While my hand is on her chest, my head grew heavy, my heart thumped much faster than before, my sweat got cold again and it shivered my spine.

“What are you doing here, dear child. It is evening already. Your parents would be furious if you stay here longer.” She told me with the most fascinating voice you’ll ever hear.

“I, I, I wanted to stay here. I don’t care what time it is. My parents doesn’t matter to me that much. My mom’s dead and my dad is a living dead, what’s the difference? Going home or not isn’t important at all.” I’m explaining things to her. I’m blabbering so much. I can’t control the words coming out of my mouth.

“You are a very amusing child. Sure, you could stay here a little longer. I’m not asking you to go away,” she told me. I’m happy because she wanted me to stay.

“So, you have a pet. What do you call it?” I asked, of all the questions that I had in mind, why did I ask her that. How stupid of me!

“I call her Lily. She’s also my best friend. We’ve been together ever since I was a child,” she said while stroking the wool of her sheep.

“What a pretty name, it suits her. I can see that you’re alone here. What are you doing in this place?”

“I live near here. This place is beautiful, too so you can’t blame me if I stay here a little longer, am I right?” she asked as if she was kidding at me.

“Yeah, I thought so. It was my first time here. I mean, I’ve never been here. I didn’t thought that a wonderful place like this really exist, it’s also as beautiful as you,” I said, I sounded like a guy courting a lady. Really, what’s wrong with me?

“You make me laugh, child. Well, you could spend your time here as long as you want or as many time as you want. I’ll be here waiting,” she said.

“Really, that would be great! What’s your name by the way? I’m Chelsea,” I introduced myself while giving my hand to make our introduction formal.

“I’m Lo…I mean, Lyla. Lyla is my name,” she said and held my hand and shook it. Her skin was smooth as I held it in mine. It’s as soft as silk. I wouldn’t want to let go of it.

“You could let go now,” she said and she smiled. I was so embarrassed so I pulled my hand away. I got so nervous that if I won’t get careful of my actions, I might scare her away.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to… I mean, your skin, it’s so smooth. I’ve never touched anything like that,” I stuttered as words came out of my mouth.

She laughed as I explained my nonsense to her. I also laughed with my stupidity. Our laughter duet made me feel much eased. I thought already to myself that she was starting to like me too.
