The fire crackled and popped as I poked it with the stick I had found beside me. I was left in my own company while Dan wandered over the hill to find a suitable tree to relieve himself. I grew curious as minutes passed. I mean, how long could it possibly take? I threw the stick into the fire and walked up and over the hill, scanning the tree’s for him. “Dan!, Hurry up. It’s getting cold.” … “Dan?” … I started to get worried when I didn’t get a reply. “Dan, that’s not funny! Come on! The bugs are starting to bother me.” I swatted a few mosquitoes before turning back towards our tent. “GOTCHA!” yelled Dan as he leaped from behind a tree and latched his arms around me, giggling at the sight of me nearly peeing myself. “You’re such a jerk! You know that! You scared me half to death.” Dan, still giggling at the sight of me, placed a soft kiss on my forehead before heading back to the tent to rest. I followed closely and tucked myself into the sleeping bag next to him.

    (Minutes passed, not past. Question mark after how long can it possibly take? You’re such a jerk, not your. Capital Y on you.)

    Thank you for the sequel! I am honored. I like the playful nature, plus the suspense. I am very pleased that there was a happy ending.

    Hey! I’m glad you liked it. My apologies for the grammatical errors. I wrote this on the fly. I just wish I could have written more. I absolutely love the story so far and I would definitely like to continue it or at least collaborate with you. I am aware that it is an older story seeing as it was published in ‘09 but its great none the less. I dont know how active you are here on the site but If you wanna give anything a go, I’d love to indulge into your thoughts, maybe we could put something together.

    I love to collaborate. I’m not sure where Kelly and Dan are headed as characters. At this point, the story could spin into many genres.

    I see. Well then, I think I may just continue on with the story then. That is, if you’re okay with it..
