I am walking. I don't know where I am walking. Steve has his arm around me. My eyes are closed.
"Maya, are you ok?"
"Hmm umm ya hum"
"I don't know how to speak hum. English Please?"
I laugh. I had not laughed since the tree falling.
"I know you dislike me now."
"I don't dislike you, I hate you!", I say.
I stare at him. He opens his mouth just a little bit. I move closer, and I kiss him. I feel like I am on fire, he must feel it too. I forget about everything in the world. I pull away.
"Maya, what did that m-"
"I don't know. Are you my b-"
"Lets just go with ye-"
"Yes. Yes. I am not your brother."
"Amazing. I really didn't know that."
I felt better having her around, but it scared me how easily she forgave me. I stop. I can hear a car. I sit down. Maya opens her eyes and sits beside me. I see a car and I wave my hands like a wild man. The car stops.
"AYE! What are you kids doing on the side of the road like that?" a voice says.
"Is that Maya? Oh meee gosh! M AYA! Are you OK?"
"Mara? Is that you?" Maya says.
"Yes! Get in! You and your.. um.."
"Boyfriend." I say sharply.
