[size12 The genie looked at the wolf girl and laughed softly as she heard her words. [b “Ah yes, they did make us run when going to the ‘mortal’ schools. So no, a half mile or so away shouldn’t be that far.”] She replied, a smile forming over plush lips once more.
When she heard the other’s words about liking small, yet quaint areas, a blush had formed over her cheeks. [b “You always did know me and the places I did enjoy. It’s also true that they bring comfort because of the nice and cozy feeling that you get when you arrive.. almost as if you are home.”] She couldn’t believe that she was saying these words out loud, but she could always talk so freely with Bunny. It was natural and like second nature to her. It was almost as easy as breathing if she was being honest with herself. Memories of the things they used to do together began to flash through her mind, memories from going out to dinner to staying in and cuddling on the couch, watching movies on Netflix.
[b “I’ve been… decent. Not much has really happened in all these years. How have you been? Anything interesting happen in your life?”] Genevieve asked, her head tilting to the side as she looked over to the other, curious as to what she would say. The words were a struggle for her to say because of the thoughts running through her mind. The woman hoped that having a conversation while they walked would be a great way to distract her from the thoughts of the past that kept intruding her mind.
She turned her eyes to the floor and began to chew on her lower lip. The fact that the wolf girl was so close did nothing to control the emotions that flooded through her very being. At the moment, she wished that Jerry had sent someone else to do this errand, or rather, assignment for the company. She wanted to try again because she had grown so much in the time that they had been apart, or at least she hoped she had. She wanted to actually settle down this time and to live the rest of her life with the woman who was walking beside her.
[i ‘You really need to stop. There is no way that the two of you will get back together after the way that things had ended and the fact that you had disappeared for the last seven years. Besides, she probably has someone else by now who probably makes her happy, the way that you couldn’t back then.’] She mentally scolded herself and continued to chew on her lower lip, her eyes still seemingly glued to the floor. She hoped that the coffee shop would help with the emotions that were going through her. A sigh escaped her lips as she used her free hand to reach up and run her fingers through her hair.
The envelope in her other hand was starting to feel heavier as she slowly made her way to the small coffee shop. She decided that when she got there, she would put the envelope on the table as soon as she could. She would also look at the options and probably order the strongest, yet sweetest drink that they had as she would definitely be needing it after these next couple of days. Yes, she would definitely be giving Jerry hell for having her do this. She didn’t care if she now lost her job. She could just find something else that her talents fit, if she had any. Or, she would just run away with the wolf girl and never look back. Only the events of the weekend would decide.]
