"Good morning." I whispered.
I looked up to find Valentin still curled up asleep on the shore.
I stood up and brushed the sand off my arms and legs.
"Valentin?" I said putting my hand on his fluffy fur.
He woke up and let out a big long yawn.
I giggled. "cute."
"Shut up human." He growled.
"Not a morning person...er...morning beast?" I teased.
He grunted and got up from the sand.
"Oh no." Valentin said staring at the shore.
"What?" I asked.
"Espen should be here." He whispered.
"I'm sure he's fine. He has his epic supernatural powers and stuff." I said trying to convince myself of this.
"Let's hope." Valentin said. "Get on. We must keep moving."
I climbed onto his fuzzy back and held on.
Valentin started up again.
"I miss him." I admited.
Espen had left a year ago with the promise he'd be back.
"I'm sure you do. He misses you too." Valentin replied.
"Is he coming back?" I asked worried.
"What if he doesn't?"
