"Er, you might want to put some clothes on...right now." suggested Eltian to Alexander, looking over at you. Alex sighs briefly.
The three of you all traipse through the winter wildeness. There is an unidentifiable tension between the three of you. Then, Alex bluntly asks: "Hey, who are you?"
"I'm a normal, human girl. That's it." you respond to him, keeping it short and sweet.
"Uh...me?" you point to yourself and he nods. "I'm
_____, Eltian saved my life. I don't know why I'm here though, to be honest..." you stare into the distance, feeling a bit absent-minded.
"And who are
you?" you shoot back at him, purposely being saucy. Hey, he was being rude first.
"A person, of course. Eltian just told you my name, weren't you listening?" you roll your eyes and break the eye contact.
you with your sharp, savage teeth? You really are a dog." you say back to him, being combative and sassy.
"That's not what I meant." Alexander's hoarse voice sliced through the chilly, mild winds. Alex whispered something to Eltian, then he told you to stop. "Wait here, it won't be too long." said Eltian.
Ten minutes later, they're still not finished talking. You decide to eavesdrop out of curiosity and boredom. "There's something up with that girl - she has something special." said Alex, very gently.
You're hiding behind a tree and then quickly turn your head to look at Alex, not realising that you're blushing. He sees you and then you look away.
You're hiding behind a tree and raise your eyebrows at him, when you see him. 'What's he talking about, does he
like me like that, or something?' you say in your mind, inquisitively.
You don't bother hiding behind any trees in the first place and just decide to barge in. "I'm glad that you have finally acknowledged that I am special." you proudly speak, putting your hands on your hips. Alex sighs and frowns.
Hiding behind a tree, you watch them as their chatter seems to get quieter and quieter. They must know that you are there, in the corner of their eyes...
You come out of hiding from the tree. "I know, you have a crush on me!" you joke, as Alex gives you a weird look.
Soon after, the three of you walk out of the forestry. "Anyway..." Alex clears his throat. "we need to find the nearest portal to Zivan. We should seek him out too." announced Alex, eyeing Eltian.
The even colder dusk has quilted the day lit sky into a calming navy blue hue. You and the guys have been treading in the snow for hours and had reached a cave. You totter a bit, feeling exhausted.
"Hey! I'm a human, you know..." you cough, struggling to even speak. You collapse onto the ground, feeling your empty tummy and dry throat.
"I don't know if you realise this, but I'm not like you two." you stumble onto the ground, placing your hand upon your hungry stomach. Your gulp to moisten your dry throat.
"Can we please...rest here for the night?" you plead the two, with a weak look on your face. You try to keep standing and remain strong (even though you are so hungry and thirsty!), as they smile at you.
"Hey, how come you're still naked? And I'm hungry, thirsty, tired and annoyed!" you complain to them, falling to the ground and lying lazily on the cool snow.
"Wait...I can't keep up." you speak hoarsely, feeling the dryness in your throat and the grumbling of your stomach raging. The two look at each other, then at you expressionless.
"Alright, alright...we'll sleep here for the night." said Alexander, seeming significantly irritated. Eltian nodded and walked off, as you and Alex made yourselves comfortable inside a dark cave.
"Sheesh! Why haven't you put anything on yet?!" you raise your voice, hiding away in the dark of the cave. He grunts quietly and enters.
"Thank you, Alex." you tell him, sitting against the wall of the cavern entrance, half-covered by the dark of the cave. He looks over at you and smiles.
"Finally...hey, PUT SOME CLOTHES ON ALREADY, YOU NUDIST." you whinge, hoping Alex won't find you at the very back of the cave in the dark. He is still outside, ignoring you.
You see him enter the cave before you and you follow. You place your hand on his shoulder and he turns around, raising his eyebrows at you. Blushing, (he's still nude!) you say "Thank you so much, Alexander." you give him a sunny smile, and his frown turns into a gentle, caring visage.
You make yourself comfortable at the back of the cave, concealing yourself in the dark. "Thank you." you exhale, lying languidly on the cold, hard ground. He says nothing, entering the cave.
Eltian comes back after a half hour wait. "Sorry I took so long, I got us some sticks and wood." he carried them in, and you could see his beautiful, bulging muscles protruding from his arms.
Eventually, you are away from the cave and wander off. You immediately find a river and scoop up its water with your hands, taking a swig. Now to find some food...then, you hear a distant roar.
"Hmm, maybe I should go back now...if I can find my way back, that is." you say in soliloquy, glancing around in case you do find a source of food.
"What was that...?" you whispered, observing your surroundings. "Oh well." you sigh and persist in looking for something to eat.
You widen your eyes and glance around, then say: "I wonder why neither of them cared, when I walked off by myself...?" you ask yourself, feeling kind of annoyed. Hence, you keep on looking for something to eat.
You shrug your shoulders, dismissing what you have just heard. 'Eh, can't be much, I'll just try to fetch some food...' you think to yourself, searching around the river for anything edible.
You freeze, but then don't worry much about it and try to find something to eat near the river.
After about an hour of trying to find a source of food, you find nothing...so, you walk off. Suddenly, the breath of something tickles your neck, it's right behind you and bellows deeply.
