"I swear there had better not be assigned seating because there's no way in hell I'm sharing a table let alone a meal with the plant killer." I muttered as I walked alongside Carrie through the dinner hall.
Don't get me wrong, I love Connor but already we've managed to leave our mark on him.
I don't think he'll forget about us in a hurry after this week is over.
"Does he even recognise your accent?" Carrie asked as we walked through the middle tables, trying to find some spare seats.
I shook my head; "No besides even if he does he'll just think us Australians are senile."
"If the shoe fits." She giggled.
"How do you feel about my food going in your face?"
"I'm opposed to it honestly."
"Connor finding out about your identity?"
She laughed; "Oh please honey give me a harder one."
We both laughed as we walked around the perimeter, having no luck in the middle.
"Oh hang on there's two over there." She pointed to the end of one of the edge tables.
"On second thoughts maybe that's not a good idea." She stopped directly in front of me.
She stepped aside; "Look for yourself."
The two seats she found, the only ones available in this whole building were directly across from Connor, who hadn't yet noticed us, he was too engrossed in something on his phone.
"Maybe we should sneak outside?" I whispered, being careful that he can't hear us, he seemed to have supersonic hearing.
She nodded as we quickly hurried out of the back door.
The sun was due to set in about 30 minutes, just enough time for us to eat and then get back to our cabin un noticed.
"Do you wanna go down to the lake? In case somebody walks out?" Carrie asked grabbing her tray.
I looked around before nodding and following her done a few flights of stairs and a grassy hill.
We sat on the grassy area surrounding the lake as the water seemed to shimmer from the sunlight.
"This is the life that I've always wanted." I smiled peacefully.
"Same, the easy and calming life, with nobody to disrupt us, the independence is nice. It all feels so easy." She adapted the same facial expression.
"Even though we've already managed to bend the rules."
She rolled her eyes; "Did you actually read the rules on the back of our cabin door?"
I nodded; "Yeah, and the itinerary didn't you?"
She shook her head; "I've never had time for the rules, you of all people know that. What was on the itinerary anyway?"
"An ice breaker activity at 6:30."
"What even is that?"
I shrugged; "I don't know, I don't really want to either."
She smiled mischievously; "What do you say we ditch it? Then after everybody is out of sight when it finishes we sneak out and see what this place has to offer in the terms of adventure?"
"Are you asking me if I want to sneak out in a search for the life we want while breaking the rules?"
She nodded; "You in?"
I nodded; "I'm in."
"Something wicked this way comes." She grumbled as she grabbed her stuff and stood up.
I turned around to see Connor walking down towards us, his camera hanging from his neck, his gaze looking around.
Probably finding an aesthetic.
I followed Carries lead as we both ducked behind some bushes and avoided the direction he was looking.
The last thing we need is our plan failing before it has even begun.
