Szli ulicami miasta, ciemne niebo było tłem dla podświetlonych obrysów budynków. Szli, gadając o bzdurach, które tak naprawdę bzdurami nie były, ale nikt przecież nie przyzna się, że próbuje zajrzeć drugiej osobie do głowy i zobaczyć, jakie trybki są w środku - przecież to najzupełniej mijałoby się z celem. Tak więc szli, udając że prowadzą przyjacielską pogawędkę, aż dotarli do kładki nad rzeką.

"Myślę, że to dobra pora, żebym zawróciła - przeszliśmy kawałek i boję się że zabłądzę" - powiedziała, nie patrząc mu w twarz. Obawiała się, że zauważy wygięcie brwi, tik w kąciku ust, zimny pot na czole.

"Jasne" - nadeszła lakoniczna odpowiedź.

Uśmiechnęła się do niego filuternie, odwracając głowę od mostka. Wyciągnęła goździkowego papierosa i włożyła do ust.

"Ale pierwsze poproszę jeszcze o ogień."

Podał jej zapalniczkę - znowu - zamiast po prostu odpalić i nie robić ceregieli. Irytowało ją to w jakiś sposób, nie była jeszcze pewna dlaczego. Unikanie kontaktu? Niechęć?

Pożegnali się, ale przypomniała sobie że nie podziękowała mu za miły wieczór.

"Hej!" - krzyknęła za nim jeszcze. Odwrócił się. Pokiwała na niego palcem. Podszedł posłusznie, ze zdziwieniem malującym się w oczach. Stanął. Kiwnęła jeszcze raz. Przybliżył się jeszcze, już podejrzliwy.

Cmoknęła go w zarośnięty policzek - "Dziękuję." -  uśmiechnęła się i zaczęła odchodzić, nie odwracając się.

Zastanawiał się, czy poszłaby z nim jeszcze kawałek, gdyby o to poprosił.

Ona wiedziała, że nie - w końcu jej rodzaj nie mógł przekraczać płynącej wody.

They were walking through the city, the skies were dark against the brightly lit buildings. They walked, talking about nonsenses, which were not nonsensical at all, but then again - no one in their right mind would admit to trying to get into somebody's head and see how exactly they tick - that would beat the purpose. So they walked, pretending to be having a friendly chat, untill they reached the footbridge.

"I think that's the cue for me to go back - we've ventured a bit far, I'm afraid I won't be able to find my way back" - she said, not looking him in the eye. She feared he would notice  the tick in the corner of her lips, the cold sweat on her brow.

"Sure" - came a laconic answer.

The girl smiled jauntily, turning away from the bridge. She pulled a clove cigarette from the pocket of her leather jacket.

"But before we part ways - do you have a light?"

He passed her the lighter - this again! - why didn't he ever just light it, like a normal person would? This mannerism irritated her greately, but she wasn't sure why exactly. Was it avoiding contact? Reluctance?

They bid their goodbyes, but then she remembered she never thanked him for the evening.

"Hey!" - she shouted at him. He turned. She motioned him closer. He obeyed, with a puzzled look in his eyes. He stopped in front of her. She beckoned him closer again - now he was getting suspicious.

She pecked him on the bristly cheek - "Thank you." - she smiled and started walking away, not looking back.

He wondered for a second if she'd walk him a bit further if he asked her.

She knew she wouldn't - ultimately, her kind could never cross running water.

That's kinda how my life feels right now physically - travelling between four cities on an almost-daily basis, but the emotions are settling down into a pleasant, mellow (yet still very chaotic) state. I'm kinda torn these days, and the universe's doing nothing to sway me one way or another. I'm dying for party - preferably the 'dance all night, wake up at noon' type, and looking forward to finally seeing the play "Master and Margarita", although it's still a month away.

Things I realized:
1. People change.
2. If you're lucky, there's always gonna be people who'll help you out when you fall. They won't always be the same people, and they might not be the people who helped you out in the past - but there will be somebody who cares enough.
3. Communication is everything. If you don't ask for what you want, you won't get it. And asking isn't the same as demanding.
4. You have the right to feel hurt.
5. Sometimes, some small things aren't worth fighting over just for the principle (and I almost can't believe I'm saying that).

Working on:
- Deluge - warrior of the Spring Court
- avatars
- dinosaur booklet
- water fairy dress
- Nightmare bunny (cause I got a cute toy-bunny to cuddle at night, and I kinda imagine him nibbling at nightmares...)

I'm anxious to see how the studies and...everything else will go.
