Disaster has struck!
I glance up, noting the change in the sky. The sunset is always a beautiful thing, something everyone should witness at least once. Of course, I'm finding it hard to look away from the beauty right in front of me. She offers a light shrug when I ask about her shoulder, apparently trying to be modest. My lips perk up a little. Okay, well if that changes, just let me know. I know some herbs that can help. My eyes glow with concern and amusement at her show of strength. I know that she's a warrior and she's super strong, especially for a female, but she doesn't have to play it around me. I hope she knows that.
I can't read her emotions very well when I tell her about Laila and how I'm not sure where I want everyone in my life. Everyone being made up of her, Laila, and my children now. Boneclaw didn't make it out but Moonglow is trying to rebuild the pack. I'm going to do what I can to help her with that. I may not have done much for the pack but I was loyal and I liked Boneclaw. She was a good alpha. I can only assume that her daughter will be good, too.
I smile, a soft gentle smile, affection pouring out of my gaze. Thank you, Belinda, that means a lot to me. I wag my tail happily, glad to know that my uncertainty didn't push her out of my life. I don't know what I would do if she had decided to walk away. I'm falling for Belinda. It would devastate me if she left before I knew what I wanted. Who I wanted. I know that I can't lead them both on forever. I love Laila, I just want to know if it's all because of the imprint bond or something else. The imprint bond is stronger than ever now after the meteor blast so I want to know that I'm falling for Laila because it's real, not because it's Fate. I know that I'm falling for Belinda because it's real. I have no bond holding me to her, only the deep affection and urge to protect and provide for her that I feel. I know we're complete opposites, what with her appeal for strength and fighting and my appeal for peace and healing, but maybe that's what makes us so great together.
The sky around us grows dark and I glance back at Belinda, hearing her yawn. It means just as much to know that you still exist. This world would be a sad one without you in it. I offer another gentle smile, eyes shining. She leans in, pulling me close for another hug and I wrap my neck around her, inhaling her sweet fragrance again. She turns to go, heading toward a cave, I'm guessing for the night. I hesitate, wondering how far I should go before looking for a place to sleep myself. But then she looks back at me and my eyes widen a little. Share a cave...with a female? I haven't done that since...well, that night with Laila. My cheeks flush at the memory but I shove it away, not wanting to ruin this moment with Belinda.
Um...uh...well no, I don't...are you sure? I mean, not about the biting. Are you sure it's okay...for me to stay...here? I stumble and stutter over my words, cheeks flushing again as I think of her biting. I watch her disappear into the cave and I take a hesitant step forward, wondering if I should just go. Deciding that I don't have a place and this is better than most, especially the company, I shake out my coat and head into the cave. Taking note of her spot, I lay down a foot away, if that, and get cozy, fighting the urge to get closer. I don't want to intrude on her space or make her think I think of this as an invitation to make a move. I'm not that one track minded or that brave to be honest.
