Toni glared. “For how long should I have waited? I had no idea you were even coming back.”

In the light of the newly built fire, his eyes widened. “I told you I was coming back. Didn’t you believe me?”

No. Peering around, she was curious to learn more about their hiding place. Now that she could see she found the cave smaller than she’d thought. Shadows danced over uneven walls, naked roots poked through rock.

“You will have to trust me sooner or later,” he told her, rifling through a bag at his feet.

She didn’t answer that either.

    Toni probably realised not much future with this man.

  7. Intriguing mystery!

  8. I feel some tension in this exchange. The late return, the eerie setting. Makes me want to know more.

  9. Quite the mystery. I’m intrigued to know more!

  10. Very mysterious and she doesn’t have to trust him, he must prove himself trustworthy. Even if he’s her only hope, she could chose to rely on herself alone. Good luck with the book.

  12. This is excellent… so many questions I need an answer to.
