The amount of red that flushed over Ilari’s face had her giggle, yet also put in the back off her mind to actually get one for fun.
“Man…I wish Chris had told me it was this warm here.. how does Hayle manage..?”
“Abuse of the air condition last I checked.”
She quite liked it though, heat and cold had never really affected her after all, but she did prefer sunshine and warm weather over say rain.
“Can I ask you something?”
“You told me some off my lives.. I mean, like the one where I was female, and your presence confused me?”
“Heh, yeah.. sorry about that one..”
“But, has there ever been a life.. where I hurt you somehow?”
“Eh.. what do you mean?”
“Like not wanting to be with you, or not wanting you in my life?”
“No.. not that I can think off.”
She turned around and looked at him. Her eyes searching, as if wanting to see if they could figure out what he was actually talking about. Could it be he had some vague memory of a life she would rather not talk to him about.
“Oh now you don’t.. where did that question come from?”
“I just wanted to know as much as I can.. I want to know everything.. you know, just in case this is out last dance.”
“I don’t think dwelling too much in the past will do you any good then.”
“Yeah.. you need to think and move forwards, like you said, enjoy this life.”
“Oh.. and you will help me?”
For a second he wished they were anywhere but a public beach, but he did after all have plans for this trip, so he would just have to live with the fact that he might not want to move for a while.
“Thank you for the idea of this trip though.. I am enjoying a vacation.”
“Did you actually have one before?”
“Eh.. probably, but not in a very long time.”
They had spent a few days on Sulani now, and he knew where he wanted to do it, and how. Just needed to find the exact right time for it. For right now though, he just wanted to enjoy her looking so happy and carefree which he was not all to used too.
“Shame we can’t stay here forever like this huh?”
“Would be a bit boring after a while though?”
“I guess so, but we can try and have a vacation every now and then?”
