 My eyes opened to the sunrise, at a time I assume to be somewhat 7 AM. I look towards the ground to see her. I wonder what her name is… Are we the only ones here? I can’t think right now as it’s too early. She shifted as I moved to my side. I closed my eyes and fell back asleep.

I woke again, finally a normal morning. Looking around me I notice the girl isn’t here, was I dreaming?. The trees waved gently in the wind, glowing with the sunrise. I sat up, She was sitting on a branch in the tree. She noticed, “Good morning” she smiled. I smiled “Good morning”. I walked over, finally able to see her in full light. “You look a lot different in sunlight” I teased. “You too” She slid off the branch. My stomach growled at me, “Do you think there would be fish in the stream over there?”. She looked over, “no clue, let's find out”. We walk over to the stream, “I never got to ask, what is your name?”. She stopped and looked at me, “I’m Lynn. you are?”, “John.” . A second felt like a minute, “Ok, I see some fish here.”. Salmon jumped through the water making large amounts of noise.

Some water landed on Lynn and me, “dangit, stupid fish” I looked at my wet clothing. Lynn laughed as she watched me complain. I sat down and stared at the water. Looking at the fish I asked how we are going to catch & cook them. She stopped and took a sharp stick from the ground “I think I remember how to make a fire”. I watched as she speared a fish and smiled with glee. Lynn rested the stick on the oak tree and focused on getting a fire going. I walked into a nearby forest to get some wood. 

Hours have passed since we ate, Somehow strange feeling of warmth overtakes me when I’m with Lynn, I don’t know… could be the sun.

We both sat under the tree chatting for hours. I get up “I think I should go get some stuff so I can make ourselves some beds.”. 

I started walking at a slow pace, Lynn had decided to follow me I guess. We travel to a nearby field that has tall grass. I tell her to pick some tall grass as I do the same. She pulls a large hunk of grass out, “will this be good?”I look up and think about how much we need, “maybe 5 times that and we’ll be good.”. An hour passed as we collected a lot of tall grass, “the sun is setting, we should back”. I grab half of the load and Lynn took the other half. We walked back over to the oak tree, “where should we put the bedding?”. Lynn paused for a moment then looked around, She pointed “over there under the big branch”.

Lynn threw her tall grass onto the ground as I threw mine nearby.
