I look up to see Amanda stumbling towards me. She then trips and falls face flat in the mud, at my feet. Well, that wasn't very graceful.. She pushes herself up off of the ground and gives a relieved sigh and then let's herself sink back into the muddy bark.
"Dear god Emily, I thought you were going to kill yourself," Amanda breathed, sitting up beside me on the log. She closed her eyes and breathed, deeply.
"Now, why would I do that?" I chuckle and sit the dagger down by her on the log.
"You found my knife?" She asked opening her eyes.
"This is yours?" I ask, "how did it get to be buried in the dirt over here?"
"Long story but can I have it back?" She asked me,looking exhausted. Amanda then raised the knife to her own wrist.
"What are you doing?" For a second I panicked.
"Just going to kill myself..." Amanda smirks sarcastically.
"That's not even funny," I sigh, to tired to shout at her.
It feels like I've been let out of a tight cage.
"What are you doing out here?" A happy voice greets me. Jasper stands smiling in front of me.
"I took it off," I decide to tell him too. Then I hug him.
"Well done," he whispers into my auburn hair. Jasper is tall. I stand up on my toes and kiss him, gently.
"I'm sorry for kissing Monty," I whisper.
"It's okay," he smiles.
"I love you," I tell him. WAIT WHAT AM I SAYING? I can't just tell Jasper I love him! Oh my good god. This is Earth! There is no time for love.
"I love you too," Jasper answers barely audible. WAIT. He loves me too.. He loves me. My heart starts racing with happiness.
Maybe, I do have a reason for staying alive. In fact I have two.
And they're called Amanda and Jasper.
