The trees were tall, strange and oddly familiar in some ways and the path they are in looks even more dangerous than it seems because the farther they go, the darker it gets and the deeper they’re in, the more unbearable the silence becomes. Woods are everywhere and the creeping noises from who the hell knows subsides together with their courage. They know that the sun has rested because the cold becomes biting and rest is inviting and the inability to see clearly is being hindered by blackness. The brunette found a big rock beside an endless tree and sat on it. Blake saw her.
“What are you doing?” the blonde asked.
“Do I look like I’m sitting?” Leighton asked furiously. Blake rolled her eyes.
“Stay there if you want to get killed. I’m going”
Blake walked past Leighton.
“And where do you think you’re going Lively?” she asked red with anger.
“I don’t want to get killed by a lion or a beast or a vampire” Blake said matter-of-factly.
Leighton’s eyes widened with shock when she heard the last word. She immediately grabbed Blake’s trousers. The blonde looked at her clearly unsurprised and smirking while looking at Leighton who is about to throw anything on her way. Cute in red? Blake thought. And she smiled secretly.
“That’s what I’m looking for!” Blake said ecstatic but clearly lowering her voice. Leighton looks at the direction her companion is pointing.
“A rock?” she asked dumbfounded.
“That’s not just a rock, honey, that’s a cave. See?” the blonde explained proud of herself.
“Oh” the brunette said examining the “cave”.
“And why are you looking for a cave?” she continued.
“We have to have a place to stay in for tonight.” Blake explained.
“Together?? With you? Ew? How can I be sure you won’t harm me Lively?” Leighton exclaimed indescribably so sure of herself.
Blake let out a laugh that made crows fly for safety.
“Not changing much eh Meester?” she grins and walked inside the abandoned cave.
It’s small and the cave is dark inside but Blake was more than sure that she and her crazy companion are safe for the night. They have nothing much inside. Just rocks, dried leaves, sticks and the presence of the other person which clearly is not helping in any way. At some point their relationship has not changed bit. They always fight. They always do but they always stay together. But there was a time when both had enough. The past is intriguing and the present is at stake.
Leighton covered her face and cried quietly while Blake looks far. She heard the shorter girl sob.
“Leigh…” Blake called.
“We’ll get through this, I know.” She made sure. But Leighton kept on crying and the sobs are becoming uneasy.
“Tomorrow well make fire. That way we can get their attention. And we will be saved.” The blonde explained consoling her ex-friend.
“Yeah?” Leighton asked believing.
Blake smiled assuring. “Yeah.”
