Maria woke up. An arm was around her.
"What the hell?" She asked she followed the arm until she saw who it belonged to. Zeek was sleeping next to her his arm wrapped over her waist. She was shocked. Maria brought her elbow up and charged it into his rib cage. Zeek woke with a start.
"What?" He asked groggily rubbing his side. He still had his arm wrapped around marias middle.
"LET GO OF ME!!"She growled. Zeek removed his arm from maria.
"Why were you spooning me?!" She demanded. Zeek went pinkin the face.
"I uh . . . wanted to make sure you wouldnt excape. . ."
"Uh huh." She growled kicking off the ground and flying into the air. Zeek followed. They flew in silence for the rest of the morning.
Marias stomach growled. But she ignored it.
"Uh. . . are you hungry?" Zeek asked her. She nodded but keppt flying.
" Im not really in the mood for dirt." She replied.
"What?" Zeek asked
"All i can eat is dirt." She said
"Why? is it some sort of demon diet?" Zeek joked
"Kind of. Every thing i eat turns to dirt in my mouth. Every thing i drink turns to oil." Zeek was silent
"Oh." He said.
"It doesnt taste bad once you get used to it." She said frowning.
"Cmon." Zeek said taking her hand and guiding her down to the earth. They walked together to an apple tree.
"Um Zeek. . ." Maria said
"What?" He asked.
"You can let go of my hand now." Zeek followed her gaze and quickly dropped his hand from her. He turned away blushing fercly. Zeek reached up and grabbed an apple off the tree.
"Here." he said handing the apple to maria. She took it and took a bite expecting the seet apple to turn to dark brown dirt in ehr mouth. Instead it was still and apple. Juices filled her mouth. She devoured it and ate another one that zeek gave her.
"I think that if an angel touches it then it wont turn to dirt." Zeek said sittin next to her eating apples.
"This is so good."She mumbled through a mouth full. Zeek smiled at her.
"Can i tell you somthing?" Zeek asked. Maria nodded swallowing.
"The reason I acted like such a jerk to you when i first met you is beacuse I never really trusted demons. See a demon killed my mother." Marias jaw dropped. When she didnt say anything Zeek went on.
"My mother was a human and my father is an angel."
"Is that who we're going ot save?" Maria asked. Zeek nodded sadly. Maria took his hand in hers
"It going to be okay." She asshured. " We'll get him back."
