Skye smiled, at least the situation seemed to bring about a growth in her maturity level. "Well, good for you Sanya. Seriously." She stood and touched her gently on the shoulder, and spoke sincerely "You're like the sister I always had but never wanted." It was a joke obviously by the shining in her eyes and bright smile. "You're pretty much the reason we're staying for a little while longer. Bear and I could have left a long time ago, lived out our last days the way we knew, when we were happy. But kiddo, you kept us here."
She spoke as she went to the window and stuck her head out. Bear was normally on the porch when he wasn't with her, but she didn't see him at all. He didn't look too happy when he left Sanya's room, but she highly doubted it was because Sanya didn't want him to see her trying to figure out how to eat.
Bear was gone, wandering the forest in a daze. He had taken off his shirt, letting the cold air bite his discolored skin. Even the weather was beginning to bother him. Clear river stains ran from his eyes to his chin, though the tears had dried by now. Instead just his eyes were watery, and he could barely see passed them. His steps were clumsy, no longer sure footed the way he used to be.
In the back of his mind, the nightmare was screaming. It had never wanted this to happen, but it was too late. It's too late. He thought bitterly, and another wave of overwhelming emotion took over. He fell to his knees, his head feeling like it was splitting in two from all the pressure. He gripped it, groaning.
