She steadied the sizzling frying pan, which cooked some unknown meat. Her foot slipped, spraying loose dirt into the food. I laughed...and..my ...cover..was blown. Great job man! Glancing up at me, her brown cheeks flushed. I swung from the limb where I was observing koffkoffspying her from. She gave me a skepitcal look. " Who. Are. You"? I could be anybody! Or not. " Nobuddy".
" Com'on you have to have a name". Oh really? " Fine. You tell me"? " Whatever". With that she 'dissapeard'. Funny though, what's a fourteen year old girl doing out on her own? In the woods?
The night is cool and light, with tiny muderous insects enjoying human blood. That isn't what is keeping me up though .It's that boy. Is he also fighting for sleep in this forest? Is he a runaway....or worse?
" Good morning". That boy, chirped from the same tree, just a different limb. " Hungery"?
" Of course". I'm not a morning person. A bag of white choclate covered blue berry's flew down to me. I then noticed he wasn't wearing a shirt and that I was holding a white and blue shirt. " You wouldn't stop chattering last night". He said, as if reading my mind, he winked.
" I think A.J. would nice". He grunted.
" What for"?
" Andrew Jackson. After my dad, who was of course named after-
" What, you like it"?
" No. But it's better then some. You better eat up though Sugar. Don't wanna be late to shcool". Shcool? I have to go to shcool? I thought that might be off the list when your a runaway!
