“Don’t hate me.”
He said, before his wings disappeared and they both entered into free fall. Jess gaped, realizing that his wings had disappeared before they began falling. The world around her seemed to quicken around them as they fell. As they neared the ground, she closed her mouth before they crashed into the water. The water surrounded them in a warm embrace and Felix enjoyed the moment of weightlessness and the fact that they both could not die from the fall. She was already dead and he was immortal. He broke the surface of the pool, kicking up with his legs and waited for Jess to resurface. He had never asked her about her death…he wondered what it felt like to live and die, since he will never experience either. When the water engulfed her from the fall, Jess saw bubbles everywhere from the impact they made from the giant splash as the weight of their bodies took in the water. After a moment, she resurfaced and looked at him.
“Well that was fun.”
She commented. Who knew, she thought.
“The thrills of being my girl.”
He winked at her and blinked…did he really just say that? Wow, he thought. He was getting cocky in his old age. He swam over to the ladder and pulled himself up and out, before offering her his hand that snaked with shadows. Jess paused, wondering if he actually meant to say that. Whatever, he was joking anyway, she decided. But still, she hesitated slightly before she took his hand and let him help her out of the water. She looked up at the big slide, which looked kind of fun. Glancing at the slide and then down at her, he said.
“I think you need a buddy to go down that big slide little lady.”
Felix smirked at her before taking off at a sprint.
“Beat you to the top.”
He called over his shoulder actually laughing. He realized that Jess had made him laugh more in the short time he has known her than in all of his existence. Jess grinned a little and ran towards the slide, but got there a split second after Felix. She could have run faster and her competitiveness almost forced her to, but for once, she wanted to enjoy this and not rush.
“Hm. You made it first.”
She said wryly, looking at him and then at the slide. It looked like two people could fit in that big thing.
“Dead Ladies, first.”
He motioned for her to go in front of him with a stupid happy grin on his face. He felt like an idiot, but it was addicting: being nice to her and feeling feelings besides cold and hard. Jess smirked slightly.
“How kind of you.”
She said jokingly, before she went ahead and got on the slide. Not waiting for him, she laughed a little and waved before she started to slide down it.
Felix hopped in after her, hoping to catch up to her in time in order to…do what? Kiss her? No…He could not do that…Could he? He knew humans sort of do that thing, but did he really want to be that type of guy? He realized that he did not care. He just wanted to kiss Jess. After going all the way down the slide, Jess fell in the water and stayed down there a minute, coming back up when she heard the splash telling her that Felix was off the slide and in the water. She looked at him.
She grinned slightly.
“Depends on what your version of fun is.”
He replied with a sight wry grin. The truth was he really was having fun with an ex-human no less. Something he never would have thought possible after Brooklynn…but she could not really count as human seeing how she was not. Jess raised an eyebrow slightly, but shrugged.
“I don’t know, what’s your version of fun?”
She asked hesitantly. She did not think it mattered what her version of fun was. She had to keep her eyes on his face and not at the water running down him, which was surprisingly distracting.
Felix replied simply, drying off with a towel before dangling his legs into the pool observing her. She was fun to him. He had never had as much fun as the short amount of time that he has spent with her. Since he did not get an afterlife, she was his heaven.
