Maya had been right - once AJ had got talking, the time flew.
It wasn’t long before the trees thinned around them and the grass petered out and eventually, they were left staring out at a vast expanse of nothing. Or, at least what looked like nothing, at first glance. Maya knew better. There were sizzling pools of water laying in wait for some poor unsuspecting wolf to come ambling along, and then they would erupt and try their damnedest to take off your tail.
Maya’s own tail wagged, a slow tick-tock at her rear, and she shot a grin at AJ. “Doesn’t look like much from here, but wait until we get further out.”
She couldn’t help but remember the last time - the first time - she’d been here. It was a little weird, being back here again. She kind of hated that some places in this valley were tainted by the ones who’d left her. If only she could detach herself well enough that they didn’t bring back memories - that would be ideal. It’d been one of the first things she’d seen in the valley and one of the first places she’d met someone new. Her thoughts tried to flicker back to Loki but she did her best to push them away. Instead, she flicked a glance at AJ, motioned her head out towards the geysers and set off. “Don’t get to close to um,” Maya said, genuine caution and just a smidgen of amusement trickling into the words.
She hoped the geysers were active today.
