Finished helping Heath to his feet, Petra's breath came sharp and ragged. At least the boy could walk. For a moment she'd wondered if he was dying. "Shit, you're hurt!" Taken aback by the boy's observation, she shook her head. "I-it's fine. I'm ok." That seemed to be enough for him.
Giving a wink, the suddenly cocky boy drew himself up. "Let's Git" Blushing at the familar tone and body language, Petra tried to steady her voice. "Y-yeah. Come on..." Each using the other for support the two left the area behind.
((Petra and Heath continued elsewhere.))
Maybe the night seems so dark because the day is much too bright.
