8. Nature Stroll

The next morning when I woke up, Divine had already beaten me to it. She had already folded her bag and collected her stuff. “Morning!” Divine happily pepped. I rubbed my eyes and folded my bag. “Morning.” I yawned. The morning light was shining in my eyes, making it hard for me to see straight. “To… bright…” Divine laughed at me and then stood up on her feet ready for what was to come. I pushed myself off the ground and put the blankets into the little bag we had been using to carry our stuff. Divine grabbed my hand with hers and asked, “Ready to go?” I nodded. We walked out of the cave and into the morning light that spread through the forest trees. 
The sun peeked in through the trees, birds where chirping a familiar tune, the chilly breeze rushing into the wind. All was calm. All was good. 
“I like the forest.” Divine said. “What's your favorite thing about the forest?” She asked me. “Mm, probably the beauty hidden within.” I answered. “What do you mean?” “Well, it’s like the darkness. Everyone use to be afraid of it at some point in their lives, but when the gods created fireflies, stars, and night lights they helped to conquer the fears. Does that help?” “A little bit. So it's kind of like roses, how they are so pretty, but people are afraid to hurt themselves with the thorns, right?” “Something like that.” Birds flew overhead as the light stood over a deer that stood only a few feet away. “Stop.” I reached out my arm in front of Divine, stopping her from going any closer. “Oh! What a pretty deer.” 
Divine adored the deer as if it was her first time seeing something so precious and fragile. “Come on, let’s go around it.” I said. “Okay.” I took her by the hand and led her away from the deer. “Here we go.” We walked around the deer carefully. I had stepped on a branch snapping it in half, scaring the deer away. “Aww.” Divine cried. “It's ok.” I told her. Divine sighed. 
“I'm very bored.” She told me. “And hungry.” As we walked ahead through a bundle of trees, we came across a large lake that connected to a river that flowed downhill and folded into the trees. “Do you like fish?” “I don't know. I’ve never had any before.” Divine responded. “Well let’s change that, ok?” “Hmm…ok.” 
I walked over to a tree and broke off a firm branch, then I picked up two small, sharp rocks and carved into the branch, sharpening it to the point. Walking over to the lake water, I dipped the Long Branch into the water and sat down in the dirt. My feet where barely touching the water. Not long after I heard a snap, followed by leaves rustling. I looked to my side and saw Divine wasn't there with me. I turned around and saw her hair tied and tangled into the leaves of a small birch tree. I couldn’t help but burst out with a bit of a laugh. “It’s not funny! Ouch! Get me out of this, please!” “Okay, okay.” I stood up and slowly walked over to her, I grabbed one of the sharp rocks in her hands and began to start chopping off the branches. “At least we're going to have fire wood.” I joked. “Not. Funny.”
