100 List Challenge: Dark

The Crying Traveler
Nakh and Kalana just came back from attending a wedding and they are on their way back to their cave home.

"Darn it!" Nakh cursed. "Sure is dark here. Maybe I should've asked for a torch back at the wedding.

"Maybe," Kalana agreed. "But it's too late now. We're so far down the road. We might as well just brave it."

"As long as you're with me, cherry, I'll brave through anything."

"So will I, luv. Now let's try and navigate again..."


Love of the Damned
Faira came home from grocery shopping. Thilius frowned.

"What took you so long, Fai? Did you have to go to China to do your shopping?"

"Oh, don't be such a sour puss, Thili," Faira grinned as he set the groceries on the kitchen table. "There was a super sale going on at the nearby retail shop. The owner is retiring. Everything must go."

"Yeah, well, it's an hour past dinner time. I'm starving."

"Sorry, love. I'll get to it right away. But in the meantime," Faira dug through the bag, "why don't you eat this to fill yourself up for a while?"

The thing on Faira's hand and the thing that Faira fed slowly into his mouth was one of the reasons why he loved him so much.

His favourite dark chocolate.
