No! No…that’s alright…You’re just…you’re just not exactly what I expected…

After all he’s been through in the past few days, he really shouldn’t be surprised. He shouldn’t be looking like a trapped squirrel, glancing back and forth between him and her every blink of an eye. He shouldn’t be wondering desperately if he’s walked into another world, when he already did that a few days ago with his trip into the forest. Most of all, he really shouldn’t let his mouth get the best of him.

But he just can’t help it. Everything happened so fast…and he has to be certain he isn’t just seeing things, make sure that she’s not just a figment of his obviously over-active imagination. For it’s one thing when extinct populations no longer become extinct, especially when they turned out to never have been extinct in the beginning.

It’s another thing completely when dreams become reality.

Yeah, I kind of suck at titles. ^^;; I hope the writing makes up for it, however.

Thanks! :D
