“We cling to our fairy tales until the price for believing in them becomes too high.”
Audrey chuckled, "You're interesting, Dean. You sure there's nothing else you'd miss? No family, girlfriend....s."She said adding a plural on the last one. She didn't think she had a crush on him, but she did think he was very attractive and she liked his care-free screw the world type attitude. The sun went down, casting shadows against the walls of the cave, the only strong source of light coming from the passage way that led down to the waterfall. "I would miss........nothing. Nothing at all. "She said after pondering for a while."I had nothing but a bad reputation and constant ridicule back home. But here? I would miss alot. i would miss you, and the nature and the new discoverys that we're making. Hell, I'd even miss the merman guy thing."She said with a sad laugh. Turning to face Dean she smile, a tinge of sadness in her eyes. "Sorry for being a nuisance.
Devin seemed to stop and ponder the question, thinking long and hard to the point where many would assume he wasn't going to answer. "I'm afraid of people. Kind people in particular. The human race is a very fearsome population. They scheme, lie, kill, and all other sort of obscene things and for petty reasons. I don't know what half the people around me are thinking or if what comes out of their mouth is true or not. I don't know what to believe. But nature? Everything is simple. There are rules and logical reasons for what they do. All animals have purpose in their lives, one thing humans lack."He said seriously, his left eye twitching.
Aiden was speechless, he didn't know what to say and for once in his life he didn't have a catty response. The mood in the cave was heavy, heavier than normal and the air was solemn.
Dean let out a llaugh at the side that he would have "girlfriends". "Nah, the only family I have left is my father's side and we don't get along. As for the girlfriend thing, I'm not exactly the ideal choice for someone. I'd honestly miss this place to. After all, when I get home I'm off to war. You're interesting too, Audrey. The good kind of interesting" he replied.
