I heard a gunshot. It shook me.
"I didn't know anyone lived in this forest and not this far into it" I thought.
I waited after several heart beats before deeming it safe to peer over the large rock which I hid behind and spotted the bear dead where he had stood not too long ago.
I gasped as I felt a odd ache in my chest. Seeing him dead and lifeless did something to my being that made me sad and depressed.
I ran over to him. Gathering his large head in my thick laps and kissed his head. I don't know how long I sat there cradling his head like I could bring him back before I approached the river gently and with caution because there was a good chance that whoever shot the Bear was still watching.
After drinking to my heart content, I splashed water on my face letting it calm my nerves. Closing my eyes for
Ramon sat on a chair beside the bed where the unconscious melanin beauty laid. She must not be older that her teens he presumed as he watched her clutch at the sheets while her breathing increased.She had been unconscious for four days now and if not for her rapid breathing and small words every now and then, he would have thought get dead. The doctor which he has immediately called after placing her on the couch on the living room, arrived after the storm had quietened down, told him she was in a kind of state due to shock but other than that she was alive but there was a catch. If she didn't wake up any time soon, she was liable to die of hunger. He stood from where he sat and made his way to the kitchen. After preparing the soup in a can he has prepared, he took the soup in a bowl on a tray to her room. After placing the soup on the bedside table, he went to the door to check if Lily was back from her mornin
After my phone call, I padded across the hardwood floor to what I assumed to be the living area.For a cabin out in the woods, this place was huge. I searched the large area before my eyes rested on Ramon.He hadn't noticed my presence in the room so I took my time taking in his appearance in the brighter light of the living room.His hair looked even more bleached, it was almost white falling over his eyes as he concentrated on the book in his hands.He was hunched over with his eyes skimming over the words slowly like he was taking his precious time to drink in the words of the book.I finally decided to make my presence known by clearing my throat softl
"You know what?""You were so right about our cheating boyfriends but we were so blind to see through our apparent love for them" Chloe finally concluded.So here I was back in school but we were in first period waiting for our teacher and we decided to catch up.I missed this no matter how much I claimed I hated it. Chloe updated me on anything and when I say anything,I mean anything and everything including the details such as time, date and location. Yes. Location. She's that deep.I haven't seen Mark yet or Chris or any member of the baseball team. Sigh."Kamara" Chloe whined "what's on your mind?"I couldn't tell her. Or could I. I weighed the pros and cons. Pro: she would finally know I like him and can also update me on his movements. Con: she could totally tell him I liked him and I don't want him finding out from her. Right?. Pro: I would
Graduation was slowly creeping up close. It was three weeks away. Chloe and I had already discussed our plans for college. I was sad and disappointed to know we would be going to different schools."I'm going to miss you" she pouted" I won't " I said with feigned boredom resulting in my pillow being thrown at me. I dodged easily."I'm kidding, I'll miss you more"I told her as we continued with our assignments."Hey Clo?" I called her with my eyes glued to the textbook in my hands."Do you thi-""Wow" Chloe uttered as she opened my window which I had closed earlier so we wouldn't get distracted and start talking about Chris. I have had enough of him to last me a lifetime."I didn't know your room was directly opposite HIS room" she put emphasis in the his like there was a hidden meaning to her words."Chloe, please come
"Enjoy the rest of your stay here and no misbehaving" Mr. Green said finally dismissing the class for the last time ever."At last" Chloe said while walking with my to our last lunch at school."Freedom!" She screamed earning weirded out looks from some students but I've got to agree with her on that. No more waking up early. No more snotty teachers and students alike."What are you going in to the graduation party?""There's a party?" I asked clearly confused because the school only arranged for a formal celebration where we were to dress in dresses and suits (horrible, I know)."No dufus" she rolled hey eyes"Ther
"I think the the Kootaca people will forever be in your debt for helping Maro deliver Kovu and Kulo" Cecilia, one of the vets at Kootaca Zoo."No, it's nothing really" I assured her calmly "she just needed a little help is all"I had just assisted a young Giraffe on her first delivery. The situation was worse because she had twins and they were two weeks early.I smiled while remembering my joy when they finally stood on their shaky legs and started walking a little, testing the grounds but didn't take more than three steps away from their mother. Smart animals."I won't have this argument with you because this isn't the first time you're coming to our rescue" she continued "a vacant spot is always available for you to work with is as a vet""You know I can't" I said lightly "I haven't started college but I am really busy making applications but thanks for letting
