“You ever think about aliens?” she asked.
“Can’t say that I do.”
“If I were an alien, I’d land here … or somewhere like here.”
“Yeah, it is pretty beautiful,” I offered, scanning the expanse of farmers fields around us, deciding she most likely lived in the village so taking the path through the wood and not asking for directions just yet would be the cooler thing to do.
“But it’s not only that,” she continued, staring ahead as she talked.
“It’s not just the beauty. It’s everything. Everything!”
Letting go of my hand, she twirled theatrically, smiled, then grabbed my arms and stared right at me. She felt warm, sexy and wild: it was difficult to know if she were serious or making fun.
