By our third day in the Wedelven woods, the assortment of flora and fauna was even more diverse. Along with the silver trees and evergreens, there were quite a few more bushes, all of them covered in beautiful flowers. There were also some smaller versions of the silver trees, though these had leaves that were pink instead of green. During our travels I’d also seen a snake with two tails, some florescent pink owls, and a little family of raccoon-like animals I was warned were venomous.
We’d just finished eating supper and were getting ready to make camp for the night when I heard a noise in the bushes behind me. I turned slowly, not sure who or what to expect.
“You’re kidding,” I muttered, to no one in particular. A little tairat made its way toward me, its green eyes wide. “Tiny, is that you?”
“Tiny?” Jasper came to stand beside me, shirtless after getting cleaned up at the creek. “I suppose there’s an easy way to test if it’s her or not.” He turned and pulled me against him, his lips only partly on mine as he eyed the little creature warily.
The tairat bared her teeth and ran toward us, chattering her disapproval at Jasper, who grunted before jumping away from me. Tiny ran up my leg and settled on my shoulder.
Jasper glared at her. “Evil. That’s what we should name her. Evil.”
I laughed. “That’s not very nice.”
“Neither is she.”
“I wonder if it’s because you’re a cat. Do you hunt these?”
He laughed. “Why bother? It would take ten of them to make a meal.”
I snorted. He was right. “Go and get some cheese from the bag and you can hold her while I get cleaned up at the creek.” I handed her over to him, both of them looking displeased at the notion, and went down to the creek to wash as best as I could.
“I’ll tell you one thing I’m really missing about home,” I mumbled to myself. “A shower.”
By the time I walked back to camp, Jasper and Tiny had come to the agreement that Jasper was not going to eat Tiny, so long as she didn’t bite him.
Jasper smiled at me. “I think we’re done with the biting, but now I think she is trying to choke me.”
I laughed and leaned in for a kiss. Jasper tensed, waiting for the attack he thought was coming, then relaxed when he realized it wasn’t going to happen. He wrapped his arms around me and kissed me deeply.
“Hmmmm. Much better,” he whispered before kissing me again.
Tiny took advantage of the moment to walk from his shoulder to mine.
As it started to get dark, everyone bedded down for the night.
“Let’s go to sleep, Shlova,” Jasper whispered in my ear.
