Ruon laughed as she pulled him into the cave that led to the subterranean gardens with luminescent plants.
She went spelunking, whenever there was time. Tight places didn't bother her, but a locked door would push her into a panic. Luckily for her caves didn't have doors.
"Oh, look at this one!" Mira had found a bug that lit up. She had to stop Vaytoc from eating the bugs since she didn't know how it would affect him. "Listen here, you gigantic fur ball. I didn't point it out for you to eat it." Dumb cat Mira thought, then Vaytoc sneezed all over her leg. Mira looked at him with a raised eyebrow. He had done it deliberately! "Ew bad, Vaytoc!"
Ruon laughed at her. They were in a group of people taking a tour. The plants were so beautiful, glowing as they lit up the cave.
Mira felt a vibration from the rock under her feet. She stopped walking. "Do you feel that?"
Ruon shook his head no. But a few moments later, there was a rumblings sound everyone heard. "Tell me that isn't what I think it is.?"
" Someone has angered the ancestors." Ruon told her. Mira narrowed her eyes at him. was he serious?
Mira looked to the guide. "Maybe we should all leave now."
The guide tells everyone to turn around
Just as they started moving, an even louder rumble happened with the sound of falling rock.
The guide told everyone not to worry. Once they didn't make there check in time, a rescue party would be sent
Mira froze. "What? We are trapped in the caves? " Like being locked in a cage. It was getting hard to breathe. Her eyes started darting around for a way out. Mira felt a warm arm wrap around her. "It's OK, just breathe normal. "
Panicked eyes met his. "There isn't any more air." Mira told him.
"You love spelunking. What's wrong? " Ruon asked.
"I was..... captured, " Mira said slowly. Then the last part was said in a rush, almost afraid she wouldn't get it out. "by Orions and spent 3 weeks in a cage until Kolar found me." Mira closed her eye, trying to go to her happy place. The counselor was always telling her about.
"Look at me. It's just you and me out having fun. I got ya. Just concentrate on my breathing. " Ruon told her. "I am going to take you out later to my favorite place."
Mira frowned at him. Knowing him as well as she did, his favorite place is somewhere she wouldn't be caught dead in.
"Oh, don't look at me like that. It's on the ocean and we would be on the water." Ruon told her with a smirk. “ I love a woman with a dirty mind." he teased. "No, keep looking at me, or I might have to start kissing you."
"Oh, you would do that for me?" Mira laughed
"Of course, what are friends for? then I could give you a rating on how well you did." Ruon told her with a little laugh. "They will have us out in now time just keep looking at me."
