When she
hands me the flask back, I place it on the table and go back to the box,
fishing out a few pieces of jerky. The moment she sees me holding them, her
face contorts. I still attempt to give it to her. With a smile too.
Still, she
shakes her head at the meat.
What is
wrong with this woman?
Why won’t
she eat?
I even gave
her a smile and everything. What else does she want from me?
Does she
not want to live at all or what?
I push it
against her lips and say, “Eat.”
“No …” she
mumbles, leaning back as far as possible.
I growl,
Her eyes
dart up to mine, so I gaze at her with equal ferocity. I haven’t met a lot of
women, most of them were just as scared of me as she was, but none of them were
this fiery. This one’s gutsy. I like it.
What I
don’t like is how she keeps refusing to eat. She has to eat something.
Otherwise, she’ll die.
“Eat,” I
say again, losing my patience.
I hold it
up to her mouth and wait until she opens it. She takes the tiniest of tiny
nibbles and chews on it with a face that reminds me of the ones I saw before I
was on this island … back when I still thought I could adapt to their world.
My face
darkens as I watch her chew with reluctance until she swallows and coughs
immediately after.
I nod and
hold out the meat again.
“No, no
more, please,” she says, her voice croaky.
I grunt and
place the jerky on the nightstand beside the bed. Frustrated, I turn around and
leave the hut, slamming the door shut behind me.
I wish I
understood women, but I don’t. I don’t fucking understand any person, at all.
That’s why
I live on my own, and having her here only reminds me of that fact.
Maybe I
should’ve gotten rid of her, after all. It would’ve saved me the trouble of
looking out for her, feeding her, giving her my bed.
I grasp the
ax from the box outside and begin chopping wood. It’s the only thing I can do
when my mind is going in circles. I need to get this shit off my mind and focus
on work. Things I can actually fix, instead of … women.
Why do
females have to be so complicated?
I gave her
food, and she’s not even thankful.
She won’t
eat, she didn’t thank me for rescuing her, and she keeps running away.
I sigh and
ram the ax into the block, letting out all my anger on the wood.
I refuse to
give up. I made my choice, and I’m sticking with it. I will just have to tame
the girl.
One way or
another, she will eat, and she will adjust. Maybe in time, she’ll learn to
appreciate the island … and maybe even start cooking for me.
that’d be nice.
Her, me, a
spit-roast on the beach, and a fur blanket to cuddle on.
My mouth
waters at the thought.
Maybe this
girl destroyed some of the jungle, but it doesn’t have to all be bad.
She could
be my woman.
definitely be nice.
