Faith St. John
‘you know you walk incredibly slow’ Axel pointed out as he stood there about ten feet away from me as I climbed over rocks.
‘well its better to be safe I cant help it that I’m accident prown.’ I answered as I glanced up at him.
‘true you do have a point, I think I just aged 100 years thought’ he added sarcastically.
Rolling my eyes I ignore it and continued. Finally reaching the top I looked down at the lake.
‘If you fall, either you take a dip in the water. Or I have to catch you, so you be careful’ he warned as he called up to me.
I smiled to myself ‘who says I will even fall?’
‘like you said accident prown, plus there is always a possibility. But lets not take a chance’
My grin grew wider as I could tell that Axel could sense my plan.
‘Don’t you dare even try that Faith.’ Axel snarled his voice almost demonic. ‘that’s not even funny damn it’
‘Fine, then I’ll just jump into the water if you wont catch me; I called down to him.
‘I’d catch you, obviously if you were dead I wouldn’t have a reason to be here now would I ?’
‘well than, that wasn’t very nice!’ I exclaimed.
‘I don’t care your not jumping off that cliff!’ he snarled.
‘Just watch me than!’ I yelled as I moved to the edge of the cliff. ‘and it will be your fault if I die!;
I already knew he would probably catch me, but I wasn’t sure about the water. There could be sharp rocks down near the bottom but I wouldn’t know till I hit the water.
‘Come on Faith this is NOT funny!’ he called positioning himself at an angle that he would catch me. ‘you know very well you don’t got the guts to do it. Just back away now’
‘I’m not scared at all’ I answered as I bent my knees with my arms out in front of me I jumped. Wind whooshed by me in minutes my hair blowing every were dancing with the wind. Right before I thought the water would be I blacked out. Not even realizing what happened.
Opening my eyes I found Axel looking down at me. ‘You are not trying that again’ he growled his chest rumbling, his eyes gleaming with love and compassion.
Smiling I nodded and wrapped my arms around his neck.
‘But you have to admit it was pretty freaking cool’ I grinned.
‘ya sure if you like watching people jumping off cliffs to their deaths’ he grumbled as he rolled his eyes.
‘you wouldn’t have let me die would you?’ I asked innocently as I leaned my head against his chest and looked up at him curiously.
‘No but that is different’ he answered giving me a small smile.
‘how so? If you were going to catch me then why were you getting all upset about it? Lighten up! You caught me so I wouldn’t die’
‘Never mind, we have to get moving if we want to make it to the other side of this forest by noon’ he cut in.
Sighing I un-wrapped my arms form his neck and hopped out of his hold. Landing on my feet with a soft thump on the ground I stretched and let him led the way making sure this time I stuck close to him just in case I fell again.
I couldn’t resist staring at him and how grace full he was, even for his size we traveled through the woods taking a very easy path the woods seeming to get smaller and smaller as we moved.
Coming to the edge of the woods were a clearing was he stopped me with his arm holding me back.
‘stay here’ he whispered into my ear. ‘we have a visitor’ glancing at him as he disappeared quietly his feet whispering across the terrain in the most quiet fashion.
