WIP MONDAY *whispers* it’s Monday, right?
This is another piece of Nodus Tollens between Rhi and Sharky!
“I really don’t think you should climb up there, Dep, it’s dark and all.” Sharky voiced his concerns as Rhi started climbing, testing the stability of the ledge of the small cliffside before them. She rolled her eyes at his words, looking back over her shoulder at him.
“Sharkster, I got this! This is simple shit. You’ll see.” She assured him, giving him a cocky smile. “I just need to get up there so I can really get a good look. I’ll scoot up and back down quickly.” Sharky frowned heavily, his eyes looking up to the top, which, granted, wasn’t far, but it still made him nervous. Rhi gave him a quick wink before she began to easily make her way up.
A few loose rocks caused her to nearly fall, and Sharky swore he was going to have a heart attack. He kept moving under her, following her movements, so if she did slip, he’d be close enough to catch her. He felt a bead of nervous sweat trickle it’s way down from his forehead, his heart hammering wildly in his chest as he watched her every move.
When she finally did reach the top and hauled herself up, he breathed out a quick sigh of relief, removing his ball cap to wipe the sweat from his brow, nearly losing his sunglasses, which he juggled with one hand but eventually caught.
“There’s a few of those Peggies slinking about…” Rhi explained, looking through the binoculars and she clucked her tongue in annoyance. “More than a few. Fuck all the way off.” She muttered, she was crouched half way behind a small bush, she scooted forward slightly, so she could make sure she has seen every one of them.
Once satisfied she made notes of the 15 Eden’s Gate members, she sighed heavily, backing up, determined to stand once she got behind the bush more. However, the rocks close to the edge gave way under her footing, and she began to tumble.
She squeaked loudly as she fell off the edge, fully prepared to die. Well, at least break an arm at most, and she closed her eyes, she was going to land on her back. But the impact never came, as she landed into Sharky’s arms. He had still been keeping an eye out just in case.
Rhi cracked her eyes open slowly, to find Sharky’s face close to hers and she blushed at how handsome he looked in the silvery light of the moon. They both stared at each other for what seemed like eternity, and Sharky’s eyes drifted down to her lips, and the urge to kiss her surged through his veins.
