Jasper disappeared over the ledge ahead of her just as Jade’s strength gave out.
“I can’t do it, Jasper.”
“Come on, Jade. You’re almost there. Just a little further.”
She huffed in disgust. “Just what is so great about this place, anyway?”
“The food is to die for.”
“And why can’t we use our wings to get there?”
“Did you want a predator to see you?” She could hear the shudder in his voice. “We have to remain under the radar. Come on!”
Jade dragged herself over the lip of the ledge and lay there panting for a few moments. The hiss of metal against metal made her antennae flutter and the most delightful smell wafted over her.
“Mothra’s Wings! What is that wonderful smell?”
Jasper laughed. “See? I told you it’d be worth it.”
Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy weekend and happy reading! :)
