Now here we go with the next chapter.
Hybrid on Island
Carla was able to get ahold of the friend who wanted to talk. There was also another at the other end of the line. “Yes, Mira,” the vixen said. “Good, I’m glad Melanie made it… Hm? Twala wants to talk? Okay then.”
That person was a bat who worked as a DJ for the club found here. Despite the second female’s wild personality, there was still something that allowed her and the vixen to bond. “Carla!” came the reply of Twala. “Finally you called us back! Are you okay?” The incident must have been told to some of the others.
“Yes I am, it was…” Carla trailed off but then decided to be blunt. “Terrible, but thanks to this guy named Nicholas I was spared the worst.”
“Oh?” the bat said. “I think I ran into one of his friends who talked about one who saved you at the beach front.” Twala went on to describe him and Carla told the second female it was the same fosky. “I’m so glad. “So where are you? I’m surprised you didn’t come over to our room after it happened.”
“Believe it or not… Nicholas offered his room up to me. He said I could stay the night to feel safer, incase Logan broke out a second time so… after the experience I couldn’t say no.”
“You slept with him?!” The bat sounded astonished as Carla’s cheeks went red and turned her head to check on Nicholas, hoping the fosky wouldn’t overhear the private conversation. The long-haired male was attending to the breakfast dishes and the vixen breathed easy.
“No of course not!” Carla interjected, lowering her voice. “He offered his bedroom to me and he slept on the couch.”
“Oh… I guess it’s not the same then.”
“No… it’s not!”
“I’m just teasing you Carla,” Twala replied. “I heard he got you some days off from research. Think he likes you?”
“I… I don’t know,” the vixen said, turning her head to make sure he wasn’t eavesdropping. “I think he’s just being nice.”
“Oh? So you don’t mind if I ask him out on a date?”
“What?!” Carla’s temper went up. Normally she wasn’t an angry person but that made her blood boil. “I didn’t say that!”
“Whoa, calm down Carla, jealous?” The bat on the other end of the line laughed and the vixen didn’t find it funny. Out of her friends, Twala was the most teasing. “So what are you going to do? You two going to hang out?”
“I don’t know,” the first female replied. As much as the vixen wanted to jump at the chance to spend time with the long-haired male, she didn’t know his intentions. “I haven’t thought that far ahead. I have no idea what his plans are. I mean I have some days off from research but still…”
“What?! You’re going to walk away at a free opportunity to spend time with the hero that saved you?! Jeez, maybe I should take up the opportunity you’re throwing away!”
“Again, I didn’t that!”
“And again Carla, I’m just teasing. I would say to relax, but then again you have your reasons.”
“You think so?”
“Look Carla.” The vixen could see it in her mind. She could see Twala leaning over the table for a serious female talk. “If he went to the liberty of offering you his residence, getting you some days off, and essential freeing up your schedule, and all that then perhaps he likes you. Who knows, maybe he’ll ask you to spend the day together.”
“I don’t know…” Carla said, uncertain; more so than her friend. It was putting doubt in her mind.
“Did he make you breakfast?”
“Yeah and oh my god it was amazing. Why do you ask?”
“He likes you,” the bat concluded.
“Why do you say that?”
“Carla males don’t do shit when it comes to domestic work like that. The only two reasons they do is to butter you up or impress you.”
“Well I mean I did just go through a traumatic experience. Maybe he’s doing it to be nice?”
“And go so far as to making breakfast and letting you sleep in? Yeah right.”
“I think it’s believable,” Carla said.
“Believe what you want to believe, but I’ve got to go. I’ve got to start figuring out what to play at the club. We’ll want to hear all the details! Have a good day!”
“You to.” The two females hung up and the vixen let out a breath she didn’t realize she had been holding. She returned to where Nicholas was and saw he was finished with the dishes.
“Everything alright?” he asked seeing her enter.
“Yeah my friends just wanted to make sure I was okay.”
“That’s good. So what are you going to do today Carla?”
“I’m not sure… I haven’t really thought that far ahead,” the female replied. She was preparing herself mentally that this might be the last time she saw Nicholas.
“Well I did come with my friends to have fun on the island. Apparently they’ve all have found someone else to join us and they all said yes.” He was saying this with a smile and then paused. Carla got some hope as she wondered if the male was explaining his plans to her or inviting her.
“That sounds fun.”
“Would you like to join us? You’ve been here before and could show us around. Plus I’ll be the only guy there without someone who I invited. I think you’ll have a great time with the ladies who are coming to. You don’t have to if you want to and I understand.”
“No, I’d love to,” Carla replied with a smile and slight blush. “If… it’s not too much trouble…”
“Not at all,” Nicholas said. “Well, let me grab a few things and then we’ll meet up with them.” The vixen just smiled wider, happy where this was going.
And so we end this year with this but the story will continue next year.
