They Love Me
I looked around and realized we were about to walk into a village. Joshua caught me inspecting the kinds of houses and almost turned around.
“No, don’t turn back! This is a village of rebels. They know me here. They LOVE me.”
“Them and me alike,” Josh responded.
“Careful, don’t fall too hard,” I told him. “You might not get back up.”
“You really aren’t that bright, are you?”
“Don’t fall too hard. In love. Idiot.”
“Says the girl that cut herself on a bush.”
“Because you pulled me into it. Let’s go, they’re expecting me anyway.”
