Jason's heart skipped a beat, and he was almost sure she could feel it. Was this really happening? He'd been out traveling for about a month now. That wasn't possibly enough time for him to organize his feelings. Thankfully, she had fallen asleep so he didn't need to answer her. He couldn't give her the reply he knew she expected. Telling her he loved her would be a lie. At least, at that moment it would. The future is uncertain. Although, looking down at her small form, cuddled up against him for warmth, he couldn't say he didn't feel something. He smiled in spite of himself, and he knew she'd be alright. Disentangling one arm, he reached behind himself and pulled out a thick blanket. He wrapped it around both of them, and sat down, with her in his lap. There they stayed, her sleeping a slight it more comfortably, and he feeling her feverish shivers grow less and less violent. ******************************* "Hey, what are you doing?" Jason was jerked into wakefulness so fast that Amber almost fell of his lap. The pikachu girl he met earlier was standing before him. She had an untrusting look in her eyes and was holding a bag in one of her paws. "Well, she was feverish. She was very cold." Jason picked Amber up and laid her down on her back on the ground. Her face was turning red again, and her breathing had become labored. "Whatever, anyways I have some Poisoncure Berries. Here." Jason and Vixxen knelt on both sides of the unconscious Amber. Vixxen mashed the berries between her paws. She then handed the mush to Jason. He took the mush in one of his hands and fed them to Amber while supporting her head so she wouldn't choke. The berries went down with some difficulty at first, but became easier until she'd swallowed the last of them. Vixxen and Jason sat back, waiting for something to happen, hoping it wasn't too late. The seconds crept by, then Amber's eyes slowly fluttered open. "Ooooh, my head." She moaned. Jason felt his eyes well up with tears as he took Amber in his arms again, hugging her like he'd never let go. She clutched at him. Her claws dug slightly into his back, but he didn't care. "I'm so glad you're okay, Amber," Tears streaked down his face into her hair. "I thought for sure I was dying! Thank you Jason!" "I hardly did anything. Your friend here got the berries." They broke the embrace and Amber turned to hug Vixxen. "It's great to see you again Vix!" "Likewise, it's been a long time." Vixxen let go and Amber slowly tried to stand up. The world jumped, and she began to fall again. "Whoah there!" Jason grabbed her under her arms and laid her back down again. "I think it's your turn to lay low for a while. I'll have DJ fix some dinner. Would you like some too?" The last sentence was directed at Vixxen. She nodded. "Sounds good. I'm starved." TBC...
