"You little elf, you must have some poisonous magic that could confuse people's minds. Only because of that I was fascinated by you. Otherwise, how could it be possible that I could be crazy about a bad woman like you."
Poppy was dumbfounded by what he said, "Are you saying that you love me? Well, that is really a stupid and lame way, level zero. It's not very romantic, but... I like it."
Kenny was overjoyed, "You like me?”
Poppy changed her tune and said, "You just keep dreaming of your Utopian dream."
Kenny kept silent, and after a while, he became serious, " Poppy, what I am talking about now is not joking with you, Listen!"
He held her hand, and the warmth from his palm melted the ice in her heart.
The cave was very quiet, so quiet that she had an illusion that the time stood still at this moment.
"Yeah." Poppy answered.
"If we could leave here alive, I hope you could give me a chance. I want to protect you. I’m not joking."
The smile on the corners of Poppy 's mouth went away. There was a long silence, she avoided his eyes.
It took so long before she responded that Kenny felt like a century had passed. She said yes in a very small voice.
Kenny heard the answer from her. Whether the answer was her heart in it or just some comforting words she said because he was injured, which all made him feel relieved and happy.
The night came quietly.
After sunset, Poppy didn't go out again. She was not familiar with the terrain of this area, so she didn't know whether there would be any beasts nearby.
Poppy piled up firewood and lighted a fire. They sat in front of the warm fire. She looked at the food and handed him the last protein bar, "Eat!"
"You have it, I'm full."
Poppy shoved the protein bar directly in his mouth, "You are a patient, and I am a healthy person, so I can’t starve you, right."
Seeing that he didn’t chew, Poppy pointed to the bag of wild fruits, "Don't worry, these
