Safira waited for his answer, her heart unexpectedly beating quicker with each second that passed. Since when did she ever travel with anyone else? Since when did she want the company of others? Since when did this become…her? But no matter what she believed to be herself, clearly her mind and her words were working against her. They had asked the question and now it was his choice to deny her or accept.
Would she care if he denied her?
Did she actually not want to be alone for once? Or was it because he seemed lost that she wanted to help? Even that was not the Safira way either.
God damn, what was this valley doing to her.
But when he smiled, her eyes flickered towards him and her heart slowed from it’s frantic march. He was accepting? She did not expect that.
Safira nodded, returning his own words with a small smile of her own, “I’m much the same,” Her voice was smooth as she spoke, hinting towards nothing of her actual feelings of surprise and hesitation, “I got no where to go, so traveling far is not an issue for me.” She paused and then gave a short nod towards his words about packs, “Don’t worry about that, we’re on the same page there.”
The raven colored female then gave a reassuring smile before speaking once more, “Maybe this will be good for the both of us. If you want, we can meet back here in a couple of days?”
