prev part: Togetherness
The two hunds still sat serried a long time. The sun set slowly but surely and the snow around turned golden. “What do you think?” Kendra asked “Let us check a last den for today?”
It was a pity to interrupt this marvelous moment but both hunds wished so much a place where they could be entirely undisturbed and alone. Then they would utterly descend in each other’s fur and could forget the whole world. Kendra put her forehead on Nayan’s. They poised a little moment then he picked up her skull and they went a while.
The sun almost disappeared when they arrived a new den. It was a nice spot. A grotto under the roots of a huge tree stub. It was a clearing on a little hill. Kendra looked at the environment. Nothing was absent. She turned and saw into Nayan’s face. He looked agog. “This is perfect” Kendra said “Here’s.. everything we need. This is our den, Lovey.”
Nayan put the skull next to the new den. “There couldn’t exist a better place. And I’ll be glad when you’re glad”
“Naww” Kendra smiled “Ok, let’s check the new den. We must look if we have to burrow very much.”
She disappeared behind the entrance. Nayan followed her. The cave wasn’t very big but had a nice underground chamber. No roots, the ground felt almost soft. “Is this the den you conceived you?” Nayan asked.
“Hmm, I think we can dig a bit.. here and here. Then we have more room which is sheltered from the wind but all in all..” she pushed her paws against his chest and overbalanced Nayan. He rolled on his back and clasped Kendra with his paws. They pressed their noses together.
“Are you ready my dear for our shared future?” Kendra said. Then she considered for a moment. Her look was abstracted. Suddenly she appeared unconfident. “What’s the matter?” Nayan asked. Kendra answered very slowly “I never thought that this will happen. That I live in relationship with someone cause I… Are you sure, you-“
Abrupt Nayan rolled sidewards. Now she supine and he was above. “Hey, where’s your poise, hmm?”
he showed a faint smile “Trust me jewel. There is nobody I would rather hold between my paws. I- I don’t know if this sounds too corny for you.. But I wish that you will be by my side forever and I will give you everything. I love you Kendra more that I could say.”
Kendra looked up into his blue eyes and stretched a paw out of his face “Really?” she asked. “Dead sure” Nayan answered. They always felt the warmness of the other, the fur, the breath. Maybe they would never move apart.
“I love you too”
The sun was set and the crescent moon shined. It was a glassy night.To be continued
Wow, I think Nayan is right.. The text is a bit corny, hmm?
But I hope you still like.
This took longer then the first one. I finished the picture one week ago but it's a real challenge to phrase a love story and as well in English. Wonderful practise.
