Surreal Shots II

"So did you look?" she asked him.

He did not want to nod, but he did. Once. His hesitation was not lost on her.

"Bad?" she asked worriedly, and he sighed.

"There's a reason I choose to look at people, rather than ahead," he told her after a moment. "Everytime I do, I wish I had not. It is usually so much better to take things as they come."

"But you can be prepared," she countered.

"Or you can be stuck, watching and knowing the outcome," he replied. "There are few things as difficult as the loss of hope."

Her brow furrowed.

"So there's no hope?" she prodded him.

He chuckled, and the sound drifted away upon dancing shadows.

"I don't usually look ahead, so I'm not very good at it. No practice, you see. You can hardly count me an expert in this part of the field."

"I believe in you," she asserted.

"Even when you should not?" he asked her curtly.

The birds had gone on ahead. The world was wind, and a touch of red lined the distant clouds.

"What, then?" she asked him finally.

"The storm is coming," he murmured. "A meteorologist could have told you that."

To that she said nothing, and he walked away.
