Ria and Nashita

Damn, it was a beautiful night for flying.

Ria settled her goggles over her eyes. “What do you think?”

Nashita sighed, right in her ear. “I think you’re an adrenaline junkie.”

“Well of course I am. If I hadn’t been, I probably wouldn’t have started flying in the first place.”

The sky lit up with another streak of silver. She counted. The thunder followed, a shining ring in the distance. Despite how grumpy Nashita tried to be, Ria could see her eyes shine with the light in the distance.

The air was electric. Ria finally got back to her feet, feeling the weaker limb of the upper reaches of the tree sway beneath her. “Plus, why are you coming with me? You can fly on your own.”

“To make sure you don’t flatten yourself.”

Because we don’t go as fast alone.

Nashita disappeared under her hat. Taking in a breath, Ria stepped off.
