As I sat back down back down on my driftwood log, I went back to finishing my nearly inedible fish. A bright light filled the clearing and the clouds began to thin, making it an almost sunny day. I was thinking back to recent conversation, which had only happened a few minutes ago. The time seemed to go so quickly and I was sure we had only been talking for about ten minutes. But as I looked at my watch the numbers were blinking 1:45, and I was about sure she had come by around one. I tried to fathom the idea that we had been talking for almost an hour, but I couldn’t wrap my mind around it. Thinking in a realistic sense the numbers didn’t add up right, but then I thought of Terra, how beyond real she seemed. Her beauty, her smell, her eyes… none of those traits fit the normal human persona.

At first I considered that I had made her up, but quickly negated it at my lack of creativity. No way could my imagination make up a person with that amount of beauty. She appeared so real, in the sense that she was living, yet unreal at the same time; like an angle that has descended from heaven. Maybe that was it, maybe she was an angle, a creation of god. That would explain a lot like her icy pale skin, and her unique purple eyes that sparkled like the heavens. Also why she wouldn’t want to be friends with me; I was human and she was a dazzling angle who deserved better than that. And at that thought my face fell for it finally sunk in that I wasn’t good enough for her; that I was way out of my league on this one. All my previous anxiousness melted away when I realized she probably only agreed to see me again was because I practically begged her too. It was pity that made her say yes and nothing more. This made me depressed, and I tried to find something she said that would prove me wrong, but I was never the one for remembering every word that people said to me. So I sat there deep in thought, pulling together all my concentration to remind myself of one good thing she had said to me, that would make me feel like she did like me in the least. Then it came to me “I want to be your friend. It’s just I’m a…not a good friend.” She wanted to be my friend, but there was something she wasn’t telling me. How she changed what she was about to say, I wanted desperately to know what she was, what she was hiding. Then I came full circle with my angle theory. If she were then what would stop her from telling me? But what if I was wrong? What if she wasn’t an angle, but something else? There were defiantly signs telling me I was dealing with something beyond my current understanding of the world, but for some reason I didn’t care. Even if she was or wasn’t the angle that I had thought her to be it didn’t stop the craving I felt inside to see her again. And I had a pretty strong feeling that nothing could stop me from wanting her company. She was mysterious yet inviting, at the same time making me want to know more and being left with half answered questions and an even stronger desire to be with her once more. Never before had I felt so strongly about someone, so drawn. I felt so confused, just about as confused as I am of how Jacob and Embry just joined the group we swore we never would. This sudden change in thoughts snapped me back to reality. I looked at my watch once more and saw to my dismay that I had been sitting there just thinking for another hour. Time seems to be moving so fast all of a sudden, I though wondering what caused this change of speed. Only one thing had changed since time began to move quickly, and that was Terra. Finally standing up I shook my legs for a second as they had fallen asleep after sitting for so long. Putting my plate back in its place I began to walk out my clearing and into the forest. “Maybe I’ll find something to pass the time.” I said to myself and set out in no particular direction.
