"Have you ever ran into a pack of them?" he asked, still stuck on the feeling he got when he thought of being surrounded by them. "You think there's anyone who has them as, like, pets or something? That might be pretty cool."
"Yeah, I guess you could say there are wolves in this city." She grimaced. She had totally opened herself up for questioning and if he asked the wrong question then she might actually have to tell him the truth. She knew she would never hurt him, but her father was a different story.
"That's pretty gruesome. There are actually packs of wolves in these parts?" He thought about what it would be like to be surrounded by wolves. They were one of his favorite animals, but he knew they were ferocious in person. He decided he'd rather not be in that situation if he had the choice.
She read the expression on his face and felt awful for deceiving him. Even if she had told the truth as much as she could she didn't like being dishonest with anyone. It might put her in deeper but if she wanted to she could give him a hint... "My mother was mauled by a pack of wolves. She fought as long as she could, but in the end... They were too strong. I haven't really known any other place to live other than here."
"Wow," he said "I can't imagine sticking in one place for that long. Especially if, well... yeah."
He didn't know how to phrase the rest of his statement. He was always so bad with the topic of death. He felt like saying 'I'm sorry' wasn't strong enough.
She froze. She shouldn't have asked so many questions without being asked some in return. She had to think quick she couldn't tell him the honest to goodness truth. He would freak out and leave. She had lived there for over fifty years but her new friend couldn't know. "I've lived here for fif..teen years. Since I was two. My mom got a job here and my dad stayed even after she died."
"You're just full of questions now aren't you?" he laughed, "Aight. Well we moved here about a week ago but I couldn't get into school for a while cuz of some paper work stuff. So far this place isn't too bad. I found you and you took me here, so that's a positive. How 'bout you? How long have you lived here?"
She blushed again and looked at his down turned face. She smiled slightly at the amusing connotations. "So, when did your family move here? Have you been here long? Do you like it so far? How do you like everything?"
"Haha, yeh. Can't imagine how it must be for a girl." he shuffled a little, unsure of what to say next.
The two of them must have looked silly, her all red and him staring at the floor. Anyone walking by would have guessed that he had asked her on a date or to prom or something. And all they were doing was just talking about dads and books.
