She watched him staring into the wilds. “Do you ever wonder what it’s like even though you aren’t meant to?” She questioned him curious to wether he ever had this. She wanted to take him into her home territory, she was in his so he should go to hers. She watched his face go pale and as if almost reading her mind she said “Love” immediately regretting it, she looked away and back across the fence. She shouldn’t have said that… That word was banned around here…something vile to say or to even think about. But there was still that ray of hope that he would agree… He would love her.
His head snapped abruptly to her direction. ”You… You said it.” Then he felt a sinking feeling. She’s not from the wilds… or is she? He thought glumly but shook it off. No. It’s not possible. “The L word.” He paused, then said, “Love.” Liking the way it rolled off his tongue, just like how he liked saying Blue, no matter how much he deny it to himself. He said it almost naturally, as if he’d been saying it his whole life, though it was the first time he said it out loud. “And it looks like I said it too.” He said, smiling goofily.
