I quickly moved to a deeper part of the pond hearing footsteps, and was glad that I did hearing a girl’s voice say, “Jelnaya! We could have provided you with a warm bath.”
A lad spun making an exclamation of embarrassment. I knew both the kids, and wondered about their life together. I was clearly concealed by the liquid, but whatever I had the young lady, named Kairsy, surely was allowing the young man, named Priven, to see. I felt a need to just tell the couple to go back home, but the girl made it known that she would not be embarrassed by the way she found me.
“Jelnaya, we can give you a good bath and a warm bed.”
